Over the weekend, David Hogg, the foul-mouthed anti-gun teen demagogue dubbed the “king of the snowflakes,” issued a tweet asking followers if they remember a time when there “wasn’t a school shooting every week.” That prompted a stinging rebuke from Kris Paronto, a former Army Ranger who survived the 2012 attack in Benghazi.
Hogg tweeted: “Remeber (sic) a time when there wasn’t a school shooting every week? I don’t because I wasn’t alive.”
Remeber a time when there wasn't a school shooting every week? I don't because I wasn't alive.

That prompted Paronto to respond: “I remember, it was before your generation started shooting up the schools David, even though we still had guns. Thank you for confirming..again…that it’s not the gun, it’s person, and in particular you & your peers millennial culture. ”
The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra noted:
Paronto was part of the CIA annex security team that responded to the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012, helping to save nearly two dozen lives during the siege for over 13 hours.
Asked last September how the average American could keep him/herself and their family safe, he replied, “Training is absolutely critical for self-defense. Under stress, you are always going to resort to your highest level of training. Just going out and purchasing a firearm will be of little help if you don’t have the repetition and stress induced by good training.”
Others weighed in:
Back when schools across America had gun clubs and shooting teams, we didn't have mass school shootings.

I remember those…
My generation class of 1979 had guns in the back window of our trucks at school because we went hunting before and after school. 0 school shootings.

Thanks Kris. I’m the generation before yours & though firearms were readily available there were NO school shootings. The cause will be found looking at what has changed since then. Morality. The family unit. Respect for human life. Pushing God out of schools & public square.

One person told Hogg:
We do. It started right after the left made schools gun free zones in the early 90s. Look it up. Also your friends in the MSM make these shooters celebrities and the left bullies these shooters into breaking. The left has also handicapped schools and the law enforcement.

Kyle Kashuv, a pro-Second Amendment Parkland survivor, shredded Hogg’s “math.”
Let's do some math… David is 18-years old. There are 52 weeks in a year. 18 X 52 = 936. Even at CNN's fake news rate, this is stupid at best.

Exit question: Will Hogg ever learn not to spout off on subjects he knows nothing about? Our guess is probably not… At least there’s people like Paronto around to set him straight.
