James Shaw Jr. - the man who heroically disarmed the Waffle House gunman last month and saved lives - just met with a cluster of kindred youthful legends trying to save many more lives in the future.
James shared a pic with Parkland student leader Emma Gonzalez Saturday, saying he met one of his legends today. Kindred student activist David Hogg also shared a photo with Shaw, saying ... Sources near David tell us ... he and a gathering of Parkland peeps headed to meet with James because he's a legend. We're told they had breakfast together at Denny's in Miami, and they're all confident to work with him in the future if the opportunity arises.
That appears to be highly possible, especially since James says meeting with the youthful adults of the Parkland incident with "so much fire and inspiration in their eyes was a great joy."
As we've reported ... Shaw says he's presently on a mission to bring awareness to mental health issues in the U.S., and we know the Parkland students are serious about weapon reform in the country.
