Lawmakers would bring students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to Capitol Hill for the summer.
Student survivors of gun violence descended on Washington en masse earlier this year during the massive March for Our Lives on March 24. Now some lawmakers would like to bring them back for an entire summer.
House Democrats are inviting students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida who survived a mass school shooting in February to come intern in their offices, working on gun violence prevention....

idiotic political PR stunt
Won’t work. Never does.
Has there ever been an election year before this where BOTH parties did everything they could to LOSE?
President Trump seems to be the only sane elected official in all of D.C.
Question — why was the shooting in Florida treated so differently from the school shooting in Texas?
Why didn’t CNN do the raucous town hall and push gun control against the NRA spokeswoman after the Texas shooting?
Why didn’t we see groups of students from the Texas school trotted out in front of the media to push gun control?
Who is the David Hogg of the school in Texas? Why wasn’t there a David Hogg type who emerged from that incident to get out there and push gun control?
It would seem that Hogg is a Dem/MSM plant to keep the issue front and center for their base during the mid-terms, doesn’t it?
sanity and D.C. are mutually exclusive, except the President.
There’s big money in Nazi propaganda. All you have to do is exploit the deaths of your classmates for the Nazi “democrats”. This is disgusting. These “survivors” are some real scumbags.
The sad thing is I don’t know the names of any of those poor kids who were kills. (nor do 99% of Americans)
But I sure know who this Hogg Kids is.
He’s a big turn off to voters, but the Dem’s are so out of touch and so desperate they don’t know that.
“Question why was the shooting in Florida treated so differently from the school shooting in Texas? Why didn’t CNN do the raucous town hall and push gun control against the NRA spokeswoman after the Texas shooting?”
I live in the area and have several indirect connections to what happened there. A former Texas legislator spoke at my church a couple of weeks ago and related how he spoke with the mom of one of the victims—Christian Riley Garcia. He barricaded a door with his body and was shot through the door and killed. He saved one classmate and one teacher.
He was a Christian who had already told his mom he felt called by God to serve in some way to protect others. She had come to terms with his desire to do something along the lines of police work. Turns out he gave his life to save others before he even finished high school.
Would make a great movie. But that’s not the narrative that CNN or others in the MSM want out there.
Same is true of the hero in the church massacre in Texas. These are things that the MSM wants to gloss over and move on from.
The mentally ill Democrats can do anything they want with the HS kids. Just don’t spend one nickle of my tax dollars on it.
Donald Trump is great and all, but for the most part, our government and justice system is a joke and we all know it.
Yes, Democrats. Run on gun control this November. And higher taxes. And totally open borders. And transvestism.
Nice, is David AttentionHogg working - and with what Marxist?
Thought they were already hired.
The Democrats are behaving just like Saddam when he was using civilians as human shields, daring his opponents to attack.
