Harvard University has decided to pull the plug on admission for Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv. An advocate for gun rights since the attack, he has become a foil of sorts to the Florida school’s gun control supporters, such as David Hogg (whom Harvard also admitted).

The university claimed that they took this action due to controversial statements that Kashuv made two years ago. These occurred several months before the Parkland school shooting, Kashuv noted. He believes that the school’s action shows that they do not believe he is capable of changing after two life-altering years.

Footage shows that the then school resource officer, Deputy Scott Peterson, did not enter the building to confront the shooter. Many people became angry with his inaction and called him a coward. Peterson retired shortly after the incident. However, the Parkland sheriff has formally fired him.

It would permit teachers to carry guns at school, but only with the approval of the school district. The legislation is being implemented as a precautionary measure in the wake of the Parkland shooting.

Marco Rubio Proves Politicians Will Do Anything for Votes

Indri Schaelicke | United States

In January of 2016, speaking at a New Hampshire campaign event, Republican Presidential hopeful Senator Marco Rubio reaffirmed his pro-gun right stance. “I believe that every single American has a Constitution—and therefore God-given right—to defend themselves and their families,” Rubio said. The statements he made at this rally were clearly politically motivated- he was attempting to build a base of voters in a state with a strong commitment to gun rights, especially among Republicans. And it sort of worked- he received 10% of the vote in the New Hampshire Republican primary and came away with 2 delegate votes.
