There’s no question that David Hogg (with a lot of help) started something. The question is whether what he started with his March For Our Lives organization was a giant waste of time if he actually is wanting to stop gun violence.
The answer, as you’ve likely guessed, is, “Yes, it’s a giant waste of time (and money) if they keep proposing the same stupid things that they are already proposing.”
How can we be so harsh in our assessment of this, you may ask? Easy. Read over their “peace plan” to bring an end to gun violence. From the March For Our Lives website:
Every day in America, more than 100 lives are taken by the deadly epidemic of gun violence. Among young people, gun violence has become a top cause of death, second only to drug overdoses. It has many root causes, including hate, poverty, and despair. It’s a deeply intersectional issue, inextricably bound with our long journey for racial justice, economic justice, immigrant rights, and the rights of our LGBTQ allies. And it’s amplified by the societal belief that a gun can solve our problems. Gun violence is destroying our generation. This is simply unacceptable. That’s why, as survivors and students of March For Our Lives, we believe it’s time for a Peace Plan for a Safer America.
Now, if the social justice warrior gobbledygook in that paragraph doesn’t make you want to throw up with it’s nonsense, wait until you hear the six steps in their C.H.A.N.G.E. plan (it’s always an acronym, isn’t it?). It is:
- Change the standards of gun ownership (i.e. make it harder to buy guns).
- Halve the rate of gun deaths in 10 years (by declaring a national emergency and announcing a goal to reduce gun deaths in that time period. Literally no plan on how to reach this goal.).
- Accountability for the gun lobby and industry (if you can’t stop individuals from doing evil things, punish anyone else who you can scapegoat that had nothing to do with the shooting).
- Name a Director of Gun Violence Prevention (because, you know, bureaucracy has always been effective in the past in preventing shootings).
- Generate community-based solutions (They may have a point with this in that local efforts can do more to identify and reach individuals than big government efforts, but still no specifics here. Just generic idealistic talk about “intersectionality” without any plans.).
- Empower the next generation (well, except in the way that would really empower them to protect themselves which is to arm them and train them in how to safely use those weapons. Instead they want to “[c]reate the “Safety Corps,” a Peace Corps for gun violence prevention.” Yes, really.).
And, so, March For Your Lives does what anti-gunners and other SJWs do over-and-over-and-over-again: they want a nanny state to do what they aren’t willing to do themselves.
The answer to gun violence is simple, but it terrifies people who don’t want to take personal responsibility for their own lives and actions. The solution to gun violence is allowing people to arm themselves and encouraging them to get training on how to safely use their firearms especially for self-protection.
Because no government can ever stop a lone wolf and can never stamp out a black market completely, the only solution that can work is for everyone to depend on themselves instead of government bureaucrats to protect them.
But anti-gunners like David Hogg and March For Our Lives don’t want that kind of responsibility in their lives, do they?
If David Hogg had 2 brains, hewould be twice as stupid. The punk is nothing but a puplicity seeker.
Little piglet is a Joseph Goebbels clone (compare photos if you don’t believe me). He looks like Goebbels and has the same mannerisms. He also slings propaganda like Goebbels.
I can’t figure out if he was born stupid, or if he had to work at it.
Phony Fake survivor! Hogg wasn’t even at Parkland during the Shooting!
Man called X—– He probably was not born stupid, i think his brain ran down the crack of his mommas ass and stuck to the bed sheets.
I wish Hogg would come to Memphis! I know some gang members who would give him the attention he is looking for and he would surely make the nightly news!
According to several SC rulings, law enforcement at all levels have no responsibility to protect the lives and property of citizens. Even when the cops are called and respond, there is usually a delay of seven to ten minutes before they arrive to take statements, mark evidence, and outline bodies.
I’ll keep my weapons close to hand, thank you. If I never have need to use them, all to the good.
HOGG is much more useless than the one (G) animal which produces us with much edible MEAT, yet just as dumb, if not more so……all HOGG produces is what comes out of the Hog’s rear end!
Little piglet is definitely less intelligent than the four legged kind.
Hogg was not even at the school when the shooting started—
Where is Constitutional Carry? This would stop a lot of the THUGS that SCREAM and ATTACK INNOCENT Americans. There are about 25,000 to 30,000 INFRINGEMENT ANTI-CONSTITUTIONAL so-called laws on the books NOW!
MURDERING another with forethought is already against the law!
Stealing is already against the law.
Acts of VIOLENCE are already against the law.
THUGS are already PROVEN to NOT OBEY the law. Whether “man’s laws” or God’s laws.
It is time to STOP INFRINGING LAW ABIDING American CITIZENS!!!!
I said CITIZENS – – NOT subjects, which the communists want us to be!!!!!
Yeah, when I was a teenager, I was just as smart in my own mind as this cognitively corrupted individual and 10 times more ignorant, as he is, than the more seasoned in life. Childish activism, no matter how loud and chaotic it is, is still childish. It succeeds only because so many cave to its objectives hoping it will just go away
He must’ve ate pods for breakfast when he was an infant. These equations make sense to hogtie; (see where I’m heading)
black = white
right = left
bluebirds = redbirds
buzzards = Eagles 🦅
Hogg = Smart….see?
more Bureaucracy = less crazies that kill
Hmmmm, Hate, poverty and despair. Tis is sort of backwards. Now, which of these can guns claim? I have been around guns all my life and never have I seen a gun show signs or despair, poverty and hate.
The Puppet for the anti gun lobby, check who is funding him and his crusade. Follow the money.
I wonder if Hogg was successful in getting his father to disarm.
I shared this on fb & they removed my post!
I don’t understand the reasoning for this bc freedom speech
Some one needs to give that idiot a reason to whine i wonder who is paying this idiot he don’t have the kind brains to run his mouth the way he does.
“It has many root causes, including hate, poverty, and despair” – Is Hogg justifying the prevalence of Democrats as perpetrators of mass shootings and their predominance in prison populations? He obviously isn’t doing anything to quell the promotion and instigation of hate by the Democrat operatives, and he himself is right up there on his own little soapbox pushing it as hard as he can. Hating people for being prepared to defend their lives and property is… Is so damned Bolshevik!
