Parkland student David Hogg’s latest gun control PSA opens with him
looking directly at the camera and asking, “What if our politicians
weren’t the bitch of the NRA?”
In the video, Hogg seizes on Trump’s rope-a-dope of Democrats,
whereby he made them believe he was open to every gun control
imaginable, only to draw them out into the light and deny them every gun
control they pushed. He then points to Democrat Conor Lamb’s victory
over Republican Rick Saccone earlier in the week. Hogg suggests Lamb’s
victory is proof Americans have had “enough.”
However, Hogg’s summary overlooks the fact that Lamb won on a pro-gun campaign. In fact, Investor’s Business Daily
described Lamb as “a poster boy for the NRA.”
Lamb opposes “high capacity” magazine bans and reacted to the
post-Parkland school shooting gun control push by saying, “New gun laws
aren’t the answer to preventing more mass shootings like the one at a
Florida high school.”
Yet Hogg cites Lamb as proof that people are turning against Trump and the NRA.
Ultimately, Hogg’s PSA contains yet another call for broader
participation in the fast-approaching student march for gun control.
The march has lots of leftist backing and big financial donations from celebrities. For example, on February 20 Breitbart News reported
that George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, and Jeffrey Katzenberg are donating $500,000 each to the march.
Fox News’ Laura Ingraham watched Hogg’s video and listened to him
ask, “What if our politicians weren’t the bitch of the NRA?” She
responded by saying
, “Your 15 Minutes is Up: Perhaps if one stayed in school, one would know to use the plural.”
