Donald Trump held a listening sessions with survivors of the Parkland, Florida shooting as well as other tragedies.
The media expected him to roll over and accept demands for gun bans.
But he revealed one idea that knocked the gun grabbers back on their heels.
The press was expecting a full on assault by the survivors against Trump.
That isn’t what happened.
Some students and parents even called for expanded gun rights to combat school shootings.
So now the complaint isn't that the White House is ignoring Parkland teenagers, it's that they aren't having the ones the media chooses to highlight.

And Trump proposed allowing teachers to conceal carry their firearms as a means to prevent gunmen from storming schools and massacring students.
“President Donald Trump boosted the idea of having teachers and staff carry weapons on school campuses on Wednesday during a White House listening session with students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students, their families and local school officials.
The president lamented the death of a Stoneman Douglas sports coach who died protecting students from gunfire to illustrate his case.
“If he had a firearm he wouldn’t have had to run, he would’ve shot and that would’ve been the end of it,” the president said.
Trump did not name the official, but appeared to reference assistant football coach Aaron Feis, who died while shielding students as gunman Nikolas Cruz opened fire on the Parkland, Florida school last week.
The president said his administration would “certainly” discuss the option, which he acknowledged was “controversial,” along with a series of other initiatives.”
President Trump is correct in that a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun.
