Seventeen-year-old Colton Haab is a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. He’s a member of the school’s JROTC. He was prepared to use Kevlar vests to shield students during the massacre. Mr. Haab said he decided not to attend the town hall after CNN presented him with a prepared question. The video below is from Miami’s WPLG Channel 10 News. Fox News has also corroborated the same.
CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted, I don’t think that it’s going get anything accomplished. It’s not gonna ask the true questions that all the parents and teachers and students have. I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinion on my questions.
The atmosphere at the event was, at times, awkward, and hostile for Dana Loesch, who spoke on behalf of the NRA. It was no more a “conversation about guns” than a bar room fight is a “pleasant exchange of views.”
The fact that CNN was and is using the Marjory Stoneman Douglas spee killing as a springboard for a renewed push for civilian disarmament is sickening but not unexpected. Anyone who doubts that a Constitutional republic is superior to a democracy should watch the CNN audience baying for the destruction of Americans’ civil right to keep and bear arms.
