And now Norris has something to say about it – calling the teen “a young man with great character and fortitude” and saying CNN should have highlighted the shooting survivor’s concerns.
Colton Haab, a Junior ROTC student who helped fellow students seek shelter at Stoneman Douglas High School, made headlines Thursday when he told reporters CNN wouldn’t allow him to talk about the issue at the Wednesday evening town hall.

He had been prepared to ask about school safety and proposals that schools allow teachers and veterans to act as armed guards for students, a suggestion offered by Norris five years ago and again this week, in an exclusive WND column.
Haab said CNN rejected his questions, so he decided not to go to the townhall.
