The media is covering up one fact about the Florida shooting
Since the tragic shooting in Parkland, Florida, the so-called “mainstream” media has single mindedly pushed gun control.
They have used some of the students to promote gun bans and firearms registration databases.
But there is one thing about the survivors the media is covering up.
CNN and other so-called “mainstream” outlets have devoted countless TV segments to students who survived the horrible tragedy and now pushing for gun control.
If all you watched was CNN and their like minded media peers, you would think 100 percent of the students at Parkland support increased gun control.
That is not true.
Kyle Kashuv is a Parkland survivor who is a conservative and a supporter of the Second Amendment.
He told Guy Benson of Townhall.com:
“I’m a very strong Second Amendment supporter and I will continue to be throughout this entire campaign.” he tells me. “As of right now, my main goal is to meet with legislators and represent to them that there are big Second Amendment supporters in our community.
Through this entire thing, my number one concern has been making sure that the rights of innocent Americans aren’t infringed upon.” He says that when he visited the state capitol to talk to lawmakers shortly after the tragedy, he consistently asked for guarantees that the constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners wouldn’t be attacked or abridged.
He’s waded into this debate “kind of reluctantly,” he admits, observing that at some point he realized that he was one of the few conservatives in his school who were speaking up in public. “It’s not even by my choosing, it’s just come to that,” he remarks. “I feel somewhat obligated to do this because the other half of America needs to be heard. I’m doing this because I have to.”
But he has not been given nearly as much exposure as his anti-gun peers.
And Twitter – which has verified the accounts of the Parkland survivors – has not added a blue verification checkmark on Kashuv’s account.
Giving Kashuv as much airtime as his classmates would complicate the anti-gun narrative.
As a survivor, he would give moral authority to the pro-gun side of the debate. But the media wants to stack the deck against Second Amendment supporters.
