In Canada helping promote Michael Moore’s latest attempt to replicate the success of “Fahrenheit 9/11” with “Fahrenheit 11/9” (see what he did there?), the Left’s newest gun control-pushing lefty, David Hogg, showed why he should really go back to school:
Ha! Remember that the next time he lectures everybody about the Constitution and campaign finance laws. Sheer genius. But so much for liberals thinking foreigners getting involved in U.S. elections is always a bad thing.
Shareholders must love David Hogg and Alyssa Milano having a say in the direction of the company they’re invested in
Earlier this year, Dick’s Sporting Goods was quick to cave into demands from David Hogg and the pro-gun control activist crowd. I’m a pro-business guy, but I’m also a pro-2nd Amendment guy, and as such I confess to getting some pangs of schadenfreude over this:
Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS.N) reported a bigger-than-expected drop in quarterly same-store sales on Wednesday and forecast further declines this year, hit by tighter gun controls and a drop in Under Armour sales.
Shares in the company fell as much as 10 percent after it posted a 1.9 percent drop in same-store sales, bigger than analysts’ average estimate of a 0.62 percent dip.
Dick’s was one of the first retailers to stop selling assault rifles and high-capacity magazines as well as bar the sale of guns to people under age 21 following a massacre at a Florida high school in February.
The company had predicted that its hunting guns business would be pressurized by the change in policy but said the move should also attract more people to its stores.
Narrator: “But caving to left-wing activists didn’t attract more people to its stores.” If anything it had the opposite effect. It seems company shareholders wouldn’t be too thrilled with the company’s CEO putting control of their investment into the hands of David Hogg, Shannon Watts and Alyssa Milano, but maybe that’s just me.
In Jacksonville on Sunday, two people were killed and over ten injured by a man from Baltimore, Maryland who brought a gun he obtained in that state into a gun-free zone in Florida and shot up the place after losing a video game tournament. He then killed himself.
With that in mind, guess who former mayor of Baltimore and ex-governor of Maryland, Martin O’Malley, decided to slam for the shooting:
Another tragic mass shooting in Florida. Republican Governor Rick Scott proudly boasted that he passed more Pro-gun, NRA legislation than any other governor. Time to close the chapter on deadly pandering. #WinBackYourState, Florida.
Got that? It’s Florida Gov. Rick Scott and the NRA’s fault that this guy with a history of mental illness legally obtained a gun in the gun control utopia of Maryland (Baltimore area) and brought it to Florida to kill people in another kind of area liberals love to create: Gun free zones.
O’Malley’s now the frontrunner for the Shameless Lib Asshole of the 2018 award, but the year is young.
Besides, why would Hogg want to accept what he calls “blood money”?
America’s newest high profile gun control activist might not have made it into college, but he’s already at the top the left-wing activist graduating class when it comes to his GPA in Shakedown & Extortion 101:
Student gun control advocates and one of the survivors of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting are finishing a 50-mile, four-day march in Massachusetts to the headquarters of gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson.
The group is gathering outside company headquarters Sunday in Springfield.
The marchers have condemned Smith & Wesson for making the rifle used in the February mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The group wants the company to donate $5 million to gun violence research.
The Boston Globe reported David Hogg, a Parkland shooting survivor, called the march empowering and said Massachusetts shows how commonsense gun laws work.
Suggested Smith/Wesson response: “We started writing out your check for $5 million you say would be spent on ‘gun violence research’ when it occurred to us that by blaming S&W and the NRA for every shooting your ‘research’ has already concluded. Besides, we figured you wouldn’t want to accept ‘blood money’ anyway. Good day.”
Why would Hogg want to accept what he calls “blood money” anyway?
Speaking of “common sense gun laws,” the Jacksonville shooter apparently brought his gun to a Florida gun-free zone from Maryland — Baltimore specifically — which are bastions of liberal gun control laws. But sure, blame the NRA, Smith/Wesson and Florida Republicans, and hand David Hogg a check for $5 million, which will somehow magically ensure this never happens again.
That kind of stuff, which was recorded at a protest at the NRA’s headquarters over the weekend, could be fairly humorous in a pitiful kind of way until you realize those are the idiots canceling out your vote.
Oh, and of course David Hogg had armed security (who may well have gotten their carry licenses thanks to NRA-backed training programs). You can’t make this stuff up:
But don’t you dare question their loyalty to the country or its Constitution! In the end though, this is what the gun control movement is all about: Far leftists trying to force their anti-Constitution agendas into practice, and they can’t be allowed to get a foot in the door.
If people like Hogg were actually interested in helping prevent future school shootings, he’d be back in Parkland yelling at the Sheriff and school administrators instead of outside an NRA office in Virginia:
When it comes to helping sell guns and NRA memberships, I didn’t think anybody could outdo Barack Obama, but the subsequent class of Dems has taken the unintentional consequence backfire to soaring new heights:
Not enough schools teach the Law of Unintended Consequences
Anti-NRA protesters, led by Parkland student-turned-anti-NRA-activist David Hogg, headed to a Publix store recently for a “die-in” after it was found out that the company had made a donation to a pro-NRA Florida gubernatorial candidate:
But because not nearly enough schools teach the Law of Unintended Consequences, the lefty agitators didn’t think it all the way through, because the store ended up suspending all political donations — and I mean ALL:
Hogg’s stunt may have also cost money to liberal causes near and dear to his little leftist heart. Not only does Publix give donations to homeless shelters, but they also make political donations to the YWCA. And what does the YWCA support? Why they support gay marriage and . . . wait for it. . . they’re also a member of the anti-gun Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. Not only that, but Publix also gave money to Susan G. Komen and the United Way, which both support Planned Parenthood.
I love the smell of “backfire” to kick off a weekend!
But because Publix is in the midst of learning that caving to the Left is never enough, Hogg has increased his demands and added “extortionist” to his resume:
Yep, this is the headline: Guns used in Texas killings were less lethal than in other mass shootings.
The attack at a Texas high school Friday echoed the all-too-familiar horrors Americans are accustomed to seeing on the news. But two details set it apart from the list of other recent deadly attacks: explosives and weapons used.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in Texas says the gunman, Dimitrios Pagourtzis, who was a student at Santa Fe High School, used two firearms: a shotgun and .38 caliber revolver, both of which he got from his father. Ten were left dead, mostly students.
Disgustingly, the mainstream media seems so disappointed an AR-15 wasn’t used that they actually spinning 10 dead students as “but imagine how bad it COULD have been!”
No word from USA Today on if the guns used in the shooting were the kind that can accommodate the notorious “chainsaw bayonet” accessory:
