In a new ad promoting the pro-gun control March for Our Lives set for Saturday, Parkland student and gun control activist David Hogg accuses politicians of being the “b****” of the National Rifle Organization (NRA).
“What if our politicians weren’t the b**** of the NRA?” asks Hogg.
Over 5 million Americans are active members of the NRA and rely on the organization to advocate for their gun rights protected under the Second Amendment.
“What if we stood up as Americans and fought for our freedom and our children’s lives,” the student asks.
The ad also includes a clip of NRA-endorsed President Donald Trump suggesting the age for handgun ownership be upped to 21 and slamming politicians who disagree with such a policy as “scared of the NRA.”
A clip of fellow Parkland student Cameron Kasky also makes its way into the ad. “Everybody is saying politicians who are corrupt, politicians who are accepting money from these organizations: You can’t run from us. We are the people who voted you in and we are the people who will vote you out,” says the teen.
Of course, taxpayer-funded abortion mill Planned Parenthood has poured about the same amount of cash into pro-abortion candidates’ coffers ($2.6 million) as the NRA has for elections of pro-Second Amendment candidates ($2.7 million) since 2012.
But this is never spoken of.
As noted by USA columnist Christian Schneider, “When Democrats work on behalf of a special interest that aborts millions of children, they are doing so from a place of conscience and ideological purity. When Republicans argue in favor of Second Amendment rights, it is because they have been bought off by a disfavored lobbying group looking to profit from carnage.”
The fight to strip gun rights from law abiding citizens will hit Washington, D.C. on March 24.
“March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns. March For Our Lives believes the time is now,” reads the mission statement on the official March for Our Lives site.
“[T]he kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington, DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority. The collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard,” adds the statement.
The gun control site maintains that “school safety” is apolitical. “The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues. No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country.”
And what serious protest is complete without performances from a list of hit musical talents? Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Common, and Vic Mensa are all set to perform.
