Husqvarna Riding Mower Won't Start?

I have a Husqvarna YTH 2348 mower that has spark, gas, and new gapped plugs. It fires once or twice when starting, but that is all. I even tried it with starting fluid and had the same results.

Did you leave gas in your mower last year? If so, it is not unusual for old gas to "gum" up and this will cause your mower to act the way you describe.
Just in case you no longer have the manual, you can check it out here: Troubleshooting starts on page 25:

My son says you may have to siphon out the remaining fuel, add fresh fuel and try to start the unit. Maybe you could add a fuel stabilizer/Synthetic Fuel Additive at that time and always add something like Sta Bil when it will be weeks or months between uses. You might ask for help at an auto parts store as they sell all of these products.

Has it been a while since it was running? You might have to clean the carbs

It wasn't run since last year. But wouldn't it fire a few times after being sprayed w/starting fluid even if carbs were clogged?
