Since the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, last month, survivors have mobilized the #NeverAgain movement to push for school safety and stronger gun legislation.
Florida school shooting survivor David Hogg uses propaganda tactics usually deployed by the National Rifle Association to call out lawmakers and propose student militias to help police confiscate guns when anti-gun laws are established.
“What if our politicians weren’t the bitch of the NRA?” the High School student asks Fox News Tucker Carlson, “The NRA had militias all over the country. We as Millenials need to start forming our own militias because who wants to live in a country where the only people who are armed are a bunch of racist rednecks who support the killing of children?”
The idea arming of leftist Millenials has been applauded by such groups as Antifa, and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Hogg, who earlier this month said President Donald Trump needed to “listen to the screams of the children” about gun control, goes on to tell Fox News, “If the Baby Boomers will not listen to the screams of their children and grandchildren maybe it’s time they do some of the screaming.”
Hogg claimed Monday on CBS that the National Rifle Association (NRA) has “basically threatened” pro-gun control survivors and is “creating more violence so they can scare more people and sell more guns,” the network’s anchors failed to challenge the student’s incendiary claims. Hogg went on to say, “If the NRA is so keen on letting children buy guns then that’s exactly what we need to do. We need to be able to defend ourselves against the real enemy, that’s the NRA and their psychopath supporters. The people at the top of the NRA are no longer working for the people that are in their organization. They’re working on behalf of the gun lobby.”
Meanwhile, nearly 500,000 people are preparing to march on the nation’s capital this weekend in support of gun control and school safety measures. Many of those marching will be students. The event follows last week’s nationwide walkout, when students from nearly 3,000 schools walked out of their classrooms for 17 minutes in memory of the 17 victims.
