Teen tyrant David Hogg claims NRA members ‘have bought more guns out of an irrational fear of us’

On Sunday, David Hogg, the foul-mouthed anti-gun teen demagogue once dubbed the “king of the snowflakes,” claimed on Twitter that NRA members have bought more guns out of what he said was an “irrational fear” of him and his acolytes.  He also claimed that “around 900 children commit suicide with parents gun every year.”

“For NRA members that have bought more guns out of an irrational fear of us the NRA does provide some safety tips for guns please be sure to be a safe and responsible gun owner. Around 900 children commit suicide with parents gun every year,” he said.

Naturally, his tweet didn’t sit too well with many.






Some took issue with Hogg’s suicide claim:

According to the Centers for Disease Control, there were 22,018 firearm-related suicides in 2015.  In comparison, there 57,567 deaths from poisoning that same year, and 36,161 deaths related to motor vehicles.  Overall, there were 36,252 deaths related to firearms that year.

This isn’t the only time that Hogg’s numbers haven’t quite added up.

On Monday, Twitchy said Hogg got blasted for statistics he posted on the social media site.

Pro-Second Amendment Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv unmasked Hogg’s numbers:

“Awwww, so we’re missing a few details here. Gosh, we thought David’s math wasn’t adding up,” Twitchy said.

Another person wondered why Hogg masked the gun-related numbers:


“Gotta push that narrative ya’ know,” Twitchy added. “We can’t talk about the issues behind the violence, no no, just the weapon used.”

Narrative, indeed — like the false narrative that the NRA fears Hogg and his acolytes…
