President Trump and Vice President Pence hosted a “listening session” on school shootings at the White House today, and Trump kicked things off by reassuring participants that “we’re gonna do something about this horrible situation.”

Included in the listening session were survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting and their parents, as well as representatives from the group Sandy Hook Promise.

What are the odds that a civil discussion with the president and vice president will do more to advance gun control measures than the marches and school walk-outs that have already been scheduled? Trump certainly seems receptive.

Wait for it …

Of course, the Democrats weighed in by doubling down on their stance that thoughts and prayers are meaningless.

We’re shocked … SHOCKED … that the party that booed God at its 2012 convention would have anything against thoughts and prayers.
