    So, has Kyle Kashuv received an invitation yet?

    NBC News reports that House Democrats are inviting students from Majory Stoneman Douglas High School to intern this summer to work on gun violence prevention … which may or may not be a step up from lying on the floor of a supermarket.

    Reminder: Any time the media uses the shorthand “Parkland students,” they’re referring to a subset consisting of anti-NRA activists like David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez.

    NBC News reports:

    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.

    “We think it would be a great experience for them to be on the Hill to see exactly how things operate — or doesn’t, to some degree — but also to have time with these very special young people that have experienced something that none of us ever want to have experienced and I think we can learn from each other,” House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley, who is helping lead the effort, told NBC News.

    Our politics are about 180 degrees from hers, but we think Symone D. Sanders has a valid point here — why are the Parkland students getting special treatment, as if there haven’t been other young people affected by gun violence?

    While Sanders asks the House Democrats why they’re limiting their invitation to Parkland students, quite a few people are asking when the survivors of the recent school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas are getting their own CNN town hall?
