A survivor of the Parkland shooting has met with Clarence Thomas about the Second Amendment.
After the Parkland shooing there has been a lot of controversy about the Second Amendment and solutions for tighter gun laws. The survivor Kyle Kashuv has met with the Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and was given some encouraging information about the Second Amendment he has been working hard to defend.
It’s reassuring to know we have people in America who still believe in the constitution and what it stands for. Kyle Kashuv is a strong advocate for guns and believes in the safety and protection of everyone.
Kashuv tweeted on Thursday that he met with Thomas and the two discussed the Second Amendment. The constitutional provision got a lot of attention after the shooting at Kashuv’s high school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which left 17 people dead in February.
While Kashuv’s classmates called for stricter gun regulation, he opposed their calls for an assault weapons ban and ban on high-capacity magazines. He also pushed for solutions that wouldn’t violate the second amendment, something a former Supreme Court Justice said should be repealed.
But according to Thomas, who currently sits on the Court, that won’t happen:
“He told me about some of the cases he dissented on and how #2A won’t be touched,” Kashuv said of Thomas.
His tweet came after a shooting at YouTube headquarters in California and a multi-city march his classmates organized to call for action in response to gun violence.
Kashuv hasn’t been shy about taking on his classmates and other vocal proponents of gun control.
Earlier this month, for example, he knocked television host and gun control advocate, Piers Morgan, after he tweeted about London’s high murder rate:
“But Piers, gun control totally worked and made everyone safer!” he said, mockingly. “(It didn’t because criminals bought knives).”
