According to Haab, who said he skipped out on the town hall after the incident, his original remarks involved the idea of employing veterans as armed guards at schools.
Colton Haab, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 people were shot and killed last week, says he did not attend the event when he realized it would be a "total waste of [his] time".
"What had happened was four days ago I had gotten contacted by a lady named Carrie Stevenson from CNN", Haab said.
Of the students and parents who questioned Sen.
Colton Haab, a JROTC member who helped shepherd students to safety, was approached by the network to ask a question at the town hall.
Haab said it was because of this that he decided not to attend the event.
CNN has vehemently denied Haab's claims.
CNN's insistence that Colton Haab "stick" to the "script" seems to have exacerbated the disagreement to the point where Colton Haab and his parents refused to participate. Two attacked National Rifle Association spokesperson Dana Loesch as a poor mother, for example - and moderator Jake Tapper did not correct them. That's why their ratings are so bad!
Colton Haab attends Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and survived the February 14 shooting that left 17 people dead.
On a previous interview Haab did with CNN, he shared his thoughts on arming teachers and allowing those who are willing to carry on campus.
On Thursday evening, President Trump reproved the network for the alleged incident. He said CNN only wanted him to ask one quick question and Glenn said that wasn't sufficient so they pulled out.
That is also why LaPierre said about those enemies of the people: "What they want is more restrictions on the law-abiding".
Recruiting apparently is going well, as hundreds of students from MSDHS and other public schools were able to take a couple of days off and travel to the Florida State Capitol and to Washington, D.C., to protest the supposed lack of action on the issue.
