Gun control advocates have been waxing poetic about the Stoneman High School students — and other kids — who are condemning the NRA and calling for stricter gun laws. Because never let a crisis go to waste.

But not every student is toeing their preferred line.

Tapper rightly called Latimer out for that:

Not surprisingly, Latimer wasn’t sorry:

We certainly understand John Latimer better.
