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

Uh, say what now?

Published

on

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.

Ilhan Omar Comes UNGLUED, Pushes Bold-Faced Lie That U.S. Is Behind Child Murder At the Border

WTH!?

Illinois freshman Democrat Lauren Underwood blamed America for the deaths of child migrants at the southern border. More on her below. She’s lied bigly before, too. WATCH: WATCH: After a dispute over comments by Rep. Underwood about the Trump admin. and the deaths of migrant children at the southern border, Republicans voted to have her comments removed from the record. https://twitter.com/MSNBC/status/1131330661367865346?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131330661367865346&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F05%2Filhan-omar-accuses-us-of-atrocities-on-border%2F Fellow radical freshman Ilhan Omar (MN) parroted Underwood’s words in a very ugly way. How many more children must die before we address the atrocities our country is committing at our southern border? https://twitter.com/IlhanMN/status/1131701844324102144?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131701844324102144&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F05%2Filhan-omar-accuses-us-of-atrocities-on-border%2F This is beyond the pale, even for Omar. After Ilhan said gruesome things about the United States as it relates to Venezuela, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley went after her pretty hard. WATCH: WOW: @IlhanMN says the U.S. has “helped lead the devastation in #Venezuela,” and accuses the U.S. on “bullying” the Maduro regime. Apparently Maduro’s starvation of his people and armored trucks running them over in the streets is not worthy of criticism in her eyes. https://twitter.com/thejcoop/status/1123676951573561345?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1123731527261720576&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F05%2F01%2Fbrutal-nikki-haley-lowers-the-boom-on-rep-ilhan-omar-and-her-support-of-the-maduro-regime%2F Enter Haley: [email protected] the avg Venezuelan adult has lost 24 lbs.

MUST SEE: Pro-Trump Jon Voight Stands Up For the Greatest President Since Abraham Lincoln

BOLD!

Jon Voight don’t care. He’s not intimidated by the far-left wing of Hollywood. He is accomplished. He’s proud to stand for the flag and supports President Trump. In a two-part Twitter video, the actor made it clear that he believes 45 is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. From Fox News: Actor Jon Voight expressed his support for President Trump, declaring him “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln” in a two-part video message posted on Twitter on Friday night. Voight said, “I know that you’ll agree with me when I say that our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy for he’s battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. … Our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln.” He continued, “Don’t be fooled by the political left because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president, let us stand for this truth that President Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. God bless America.” PART I: https://twitter.com/jonvoight/status/1132093445743489024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132093445743489024&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-jon-voight-releases-video-to-my-fellow-americans-calling-trump-the-greatest-president-since-abraham-lincoln%2F PART II: https://twitter.com/jonvoight/status/1132094914026770432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132094914026770432&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-jon-voight-releases-video-to-my-fellow-americans-calling-trump-the-greatest-president-since-abraham-lincoln%2F Kelsey Grammer is far from the only conservative star in Hollywood, but like Voight, he’s one of the few willing to talk about his beliefs. It couldn’t have been easy working on “Cheers” with so many far-left radicals like Woody Harrelson and Ted Danson all of those years, but Grammer came out unscathed. Now, the “Frasier” star is taking a stand for President Trump by blasting the past 60 years of “clowns” running the nation. From Daily Wire: One of the few Hollywood conservatives, Kelsey Grammer of TV’s “Frasier,” is singing President Trump’s praises for doing more in 60 years than…
