David Hogg, a student and victim of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, posted a new video on Twitter that asks, “What if our politicians weren’t the b***h of the NRA?”
Following the mass shooting that left a total of 17 students and staff dead at the school, Hogg has been speaking out on mainstream media outlets across the nation. He believes that stricter gun laws would prevent another mass shooting.
What does his video say?
Hogg's latest video shows President Donald Trump mentioning the NRA with the hashtag "#WhatIf" superimposed over the image.
“What if we all voted and said this is not OK?” Hogg asks.
The video goes on to show Democrat Conor Lamb’s victory in a close special election race in Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district. Lamb defeated Republican Rick Saccone in a primarily conservative district.
“What if we stood up as Americans and fought for our freedom and our childrens’ lives?” Hogg asks in his video.
The video also promotes the upcoming March For Our Lives event on March 24 in Washington, D.C.
“Pressure Congress to act immediately on gun control,” reads a banner across the bottom of the video.
Second Amendment advocates and NRA supporters wrote blistering replies to his post. Some of them asked Hogg why he hasn't spoken out about how law enforcement failed to act in ways that could have prevented or minimized the tragedy.
One of the responses read, in part: "#Whatif the police would have gone in instead of cruising around in golf carts?"
What are his future plans?
Meanwhile, Hogg made it known to his half-million Twitter followers that he plans to become more politically active.
Thank you for all of your support! After reading many of your comments I think a gap year may be in my future. I may do some internships and work on midterms (the elections not the tests).— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) March 17, 2018
Other upcoming events include a national student walkout on April 20, the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting that left 15 dead, including the two perpetrators. The event is called "Enough is Enough."
