Harvard to Host 'Conversation' on Guns with Only Pro-Gun Control Parkland Students

Parkland students appear on NBC's Meet the Press.

The Institute of Politics at Harvard University will hold an event with Parkland students next week dubbed "#NEVERAGAIN: How Parkland Students are Changing the Conversation on Guns."

But it is clear that Harvard is only interested in hearing from one side of the conversation.

The discussion will feature students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who survived the mass shooting last month and who favor stricter gun control, including the now all-too-familiar Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg and Cameron Kasky.

A Conversation with Students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School:

Ryan Deitsch

Matt Deitsch

Emma Gonzalez

David Hogg

Cameron Kasky

Alex Wind

Not included is Kyle Kashuv, a high-profile pro-2nd Amendment student who has met with President Trump and been featured on Fox News:

Also not invited is Colton Haab, the ROTC student hero who shielded dozens of students from gunfire using Kevlar sheets.

Haab is the student who told Fox News last month that he pulled out of CNN's town hall because producers told him to stick to their script.

The pro-gun-control conversation is scheduled to be held on March 20.

Student activists are also planning "the March for Our Lives" later this month in Washington, D.C., that has been billed as a rally for school safety and against gun violence. The activists will also be demanding stricter gun laws.

Meanwhile, the Louis Farrakhan-supporting Women's March leaders have organized a student walk-out on March 14 "to protest gun violence."

Schools across the country have had to create guidelines that will allow students and teachers to participate in gun control activism during school hours on Wednesday.

And students who do not favor gun control will play along because why not? Their opinions may not be welcome, but they're certainly not going to miss an opportunity to skip school.
