David Hogg Compares Shootings to Shark Attacks. One Small Problem…

Uh, say what now?

Published

Gun control activist and Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg is making headlines again — which no doubt tickles him pink — for his attempt to make some sort of profound statement by comparing shootings to shark attacks.

Don’t worry, it’s as goofy as it sounds.

Unfortunately for Hogg, there’s quite a few issues with his comparison.

“Imagine saying the only way to stop shark attacks is with more sharks,” Hogg tweeted.

On its face, this makes a little sense. Why would you release more sharks hoping to stop sharks from attacking people?

For gun-rights activists, the idea that a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun is a prevalent talking point. In Hogg’s analogy, that would mean finding good sharks to stop the bad sharks. If we could train sharks like that, well, that would be awesome.

If we took Hogg’s analogy to its logical conclusion for gun-control activists, the picture gets pretty silly. It also illustrates the problems with gun-control arguments.

Banning sharks, as many activists want for guns, would mean killing sharks or – gasp – building a wall to keep them out of our waters. Putting severe restrictions on sharks wouldn’t work either, as sharks aren’t going to listen.

Maybe we could put up signs that say “Shark-Free Zone,” to keep the sharks from being around people. Maybe we could do background checks on sharks to see which ones have committed shark crimes previously and keep only them away from our shores. Maybe we could pass laws against shark attacks, and then pass more laws against shark attacks if they don’t stop.

This whole comment is a real head scratcher. It’s comparing apples to oranges. They’re two totally different things.

For starters, a person with a gun who is hell bent on committing horrific acts using violent force can only be stopped by the application of an equal amount of violent force. The kind of person who would apply this type of force to a vicious murderer is typically the kind of individual who sees life as valuable and worth protecting, thus earning them the title of “the good guy.”

Someone with a weapon — and bad guys will find ways to get them, whether they are banned or not — is not going to suddenly have a change of heart and throw down their guns. It’s going to take guns in the right hands to shut down an attack.

This is a reality the left just can’t bring themselves to acknowledge. Let’s hope one day they get it and stop fighting so hard to take away our Second Amendment.

Fraud. Plain and simple. United States Postal Service worker Jesse Morgan was ordered to commit fraud, in order to hurt President Trump’s chances of re-election. Thankfully, Morgan is speaking up. Let’s all pray that everything that needs to come out comes out, and Joe Biden never steps foot inside the White House again. From Just the News: Sworn testimony of several whistleblowers on Tuesday alleged what one election integrity activist is calling “potential ballot fraud on a massive scale,” with multiple eyewitnesses testifying to alleged suspicious behavior in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. In a press conference in Arlington, Va., the Amistad Project — a civil liberties initiative of the Thomas More Society — presented the testimony of three individuals who claim to have witnessed apparent voting malfeasance during the 2020 election. One, Jesse Morgan, a truck driver for a subcontractor with the United States Postal Service, claimed that a trailer he was driving, one full of potentially upwards of 288,000 ballots, disappeared from its parked location at a Lancaster, Pa. USPS depot after Morgan dropped it off there. Morgan had transported those ballots from Bethpage, N.Y. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0xaA4dYsbQ&feature=emb_title

Trump attorney Lin Wood is pro-Trump, right? That would make sense, after all. But is it possible he’s not completely partial to the president? Hmmm. Check this out, via The Daily Wire: Georgia-based attorney Lin Wood, an alleged Trump supporter, urged Trump supporters on Tuesday evening in the state to “not vote in the Senate runoff” unless the two Republican Senate candidates publicly demanded that Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp call an emergency session in the legislature to investigate alleged voter fraud. However, news reports that surfaced late on Tuesday evening appear to show that Wood has a history of voting for and donating to Democrats.
