Kirsters Baish| The left has found a young poster child for their anti-Second Amendment movement, and that poster boy is none other than David Hogg. The Parkland, Florida student turned anti-gun activist seems to have been handed the spotlight on the stage for those against gun rights. It seems that Hogg keeps losing track of the facts in his attempts to look like an expert on gun violence.
The 17 year old used the mass shooting as a stepping stone into his role as political activist. The Florida student has taken sides with the progressive left in order to launch a full attack on the NRA and the rest of America who supports the Second Amendment.
Hogg went so far as to put a camera in the faces of other students for what he called “interviews.” This was going on even as the shooting was unfolding. Hogg released a “PSA” which displays his condescending attitude.
Conservative Tribune reported:
The “advertisement,” which features the over the top teenager sternly lecturing Americans while framed by a stark black background, begins with this blunt and misinformed question: “What if our politicians weren’t the b—- of the NRA?”
Apparently it’s a bad thing that when millions of like-minded American gun owners speak, their representatives listen. With an ignorant lead like that, you know the sanctimony is off to a great start. Try to hold your nose.
“In the video, Hogg seizes on Trump’s rope-a-dope of Democrats, whereby he made them believe he was open to every gun control imaginable, only to draw them out into the light and deny them every gun control they pushed,” explained Breitbart News.
“He then points to Democrat Conor Lamb’s victory over Republican Rick Saccone earlier in the week. Hogg suggests Lamb’s victory is proof Americans have had ‘enough,’” continued the news outlet.
The big issue is that even though Conor Lamb is a Democrat who was able to defeat his Republican opponent… just barely, he’s not actually anti-Second Amendment. Well, he claims that he is not, and just about everyone following the election who isn’t a high school student was aware of that.
Lamb actually ran on a “Blue Dog Democrat” platform. He openly supported the Second Amendment and made it clear that he opposes anti-gun programs such as magazine bans.
The new congressman explained, “New gun laws aren’t the answer to preventing more mass shootings like the one at a Florida high school.”
An Investor’s Business Daily editorial that was published last week read, “Democrats are celebrating the victory of gun-loving Conor Lamb in the Pennsylvania special election. What would those student gun control protestors say if they knew about that?”
Are they too foolish to realize or are they purposely pushing a false narrative?

Let’s take a look at the numbers. The Department of Education reported that there are some 51 million kids in schools in the United States as of 2017. Criminology Professor James Alan Fox explained in USA Today, “Over the past quarter-century, on average about 10 students are slain in school shootings annually.”
While 10 out of 51,000,000 is still too many, the numbers are so low that it is extremely unlikely that there will be a school shooting at your kid’s school.
