During the 2016 election a mini-celebrity spawned out of seemingly nowhere. The infamous “red sweater guy” Ken Bone from the presidential debates recently came under attack for spending time with his son.
Ken posted a picture during a Twitter fight between two students from Parkland, FL over gun control. The picture was a photo of Ken and his son at a shooting range.
Reported from BearingArms:
“Ken Bone — aka the “red sweater guy” — claims his son was suspended from school on Thursday and is now being investigated by cops for a photo that shows him firing an assault-style rifle at a shooting range.
The picture was posted by Bone earlier in the week after he caught wind of a Twitter exchange between Marjory Stoneman Douglas student and gun rights advocate Kyle Kashuv and national security lawyer Bradley P. Moss.”
Remember this photo from a few days ago? Well, a school administrator saw it and now my son is suspended from school pending a police investigation. pic.twitter.com/tTXSBDo39g

While it’s understandable now that schools might be taking closer looks to things that are posted online, this is a gross overreach of power from the administration.
It’s clear from the photo that Ken and his son are practicing safe shooting and that in no way is there a threat to anyone at the school.
Its obvious that gun control advocates will try everything to push their own agenda. It remains to be seen if Ken and his son will take legal action against the school.
