Hogg & De Blasio team up for more anti gun hysteria

...if you have wondered for a while how much of David Hogg’s crap was a case of being an idealistic youth and how much was nothing more than a desperate grab for fame. Well, more than likely...it's both. OK, it’s cynical, but it was about the only way many of us not taken in by Hogg's ignorance & naiveté could explain his extortion attempt with Smith & Wesson. It's not like anyone into 'gun control' would think that Hogg and his followers could impact the gun manufacturer’s bottom line.
Now comes De Blasio with another effort termed Mayors for Our Lives, which builds off the name recognition of this year’s polarizing March for Our Lives movement spearheaded by Hogg and other Parkland, Florida high school students with the help of wealthy donors and established gun control groups. The mayors involved pledge to make voter registration forms more available to students and back “get out the vote” campaigns aimed at younger demographics.
Hogg, appearing with De Blasio on MSNBC’s Morning Joe last week, said the recent surprise win by Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillium in Florida’s Democratic gubernatorial primary came about because of youth advocacy.

It's not like there aren't already dozens of anti-gun groups, and part of why they’re so ineffective is that they aren’t unified like the voices on the pro-gun side. Creating yet another anti-gun group won’t actually help anything other than put Hogg's stupidity on further display much like his touting Gillum's win by an anti-gun Democrat in a Democratic primary as if it actually means anything at this point. Yes, Gillium won the primary...but he isn’t the governor of Florida by any stretch of the imagination. Not yet. Until and unless that happens, the youth advocacy has accomplished jack squat. But what Hogg has managed to do is further dilute the anti-gun voices already out there.

Gun control groups are largely a dime a dozen...springing up all the time, in part because people like Hogg are driven by ego.
