David Hogg: ‘I’m not going back to school’ until gun control passed; Florida lawmakers are ‘child murderers’

While speaking at a gun control rally in New Jersey on Sunday, student-turned-activist and media darling David Hogg called Florida lawmakers “child murderers” and promised not to go back to school until gun control is passed.

“I’m not going back to school on Wednesday until one bill is passed,” he said, according to the New York Daily News.

“Literally any legislation at this point would be a success. Considering the fact that so few legislators in Florida met with us and they want the people to forget, that’s disgusting. The fact that they want people to forget about this and elect them again as the child murderers they are, that’s unacceptable and we’re not going to let that happen,” he added.

The NYDN further reported:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Hogg, 17, who survived the Feb. 14 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, was as one of four students who rallied for new gun legislation with New Jersey politicians at Temple B’nai Abraham in Livingston.

He and several of his classmates, including Livingston native Harris Jaffe, 16, have been touring the country since the shooting, trying to drum up political support for new gun legislation in the days since former student Nikolas Cruz, 19, was arrested and charged with killing 17 students and teachers with an assault rifle.

Response on Twitter was pretty much what one might expect.


It certainly seems like he’s been spending a lot more time out of school than in lately with all that time he’s spent on various media outlets.



Good question…

One person suggested boycotting Hogg:


Breitbart notes:

To date, state-level gun control proposals include “tougher background checks,” a bump stock ban, a waiting period for long gun purchases, raising minimum age for rifle purchases to 21-years old, and gun confiscation orders similar to California’s Gun Violence Restraining Orders. All of these gun controls were proposed last week by Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) and not a single one of them would have prevented the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Proposed gun controls at the federal level include proposals similar to Gov. Scott’s, plus an “assault weapons” ban and “universal background checks.” Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) is a leading voice for these gun controls, even though neither one would have prevented the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. (The “assault weapons” ban would not have prevented the shooting because such a ban, if fashioned like the 1994-2004 ban, does not actually ban certain guns. Rather, it bans cosmetic features. And universal background checks would be impotent because the gunman, Nikolas Cruz, passed a background check for the rifle he used on February 14.)

There is one proposal that would have had an impact, Breitbart said, but Hogg and others stand in opposition:

The one change that could make an immediate difference in school safety would be to arm teachers as Utah did over 15 years ago, and as is currently being done in school districts in Colorado, Ohio, South Dakota, Texas, and other states. But David Hogg, Gov. Scott, and Rep. Deutch all oppose arming teachers for school safety.

According to Hogg, money that would be used to arm teachers should instead be put into S.T.E.M. studies so teachers “can do more cool stuff and we’ll be able to create jobs in renewable, clean and independent American energy like wind and solar,” Breitbart said.

As we and others have reported, Hogg has been quite busy since the tragic Parkland shooting, making all the rounds on the so-called “mainstream media,” calling for boycotts, smearing gun supporters like Dana Loesch with false accusations, even giving travel advise to spring breakers and providing stock tips he thinks will hurt the NRA.

One person wondered:


Or maybe: “Hogg threatens to hold breath until gun control is passed.”
