David Hogg Praises New Zealand Gun Ban, Chides U.S. Government ‘Owned’ By Gun Makers

David Hogg took an opportunity on Twitter Wednesday to praise New Zealand for its sweeping new gun ban while blasting the U.S. government in the process.

Linking to an article announcing that the New Zealand parliament, on its third and final reading, passed The Arms (Prohibited Firearms, Magazines, and Parts) Amendment Bill by a 119 to 1 vote, Hogg said, “When your government is not owned by gun manufacturers.”

The legislation, which after a royal assent by the country’s governor-general could take effect as soon as this Friday, less than a month after the March 15 Christchurch attack, retroactively bans all semiautomatic firearms with limited exceptions. Owners of prohibited firearms will have until September to turn ‘em over or else face penalties ranging from 2 to 10 years in prison depending on the offense.

Speaking at the reading Wednesday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern spoke about her shock when learning that semiautomatic firearms were widely available to citizens and the need to forgo the standard political process to immediately change the laws.

“I could not fathom how weapons that could cause such destruction and large-scale death could have been obtained legally in this country. I could not fathom that,” Ardern explained.

“I could not hand-on-heart go down and face not just the media, not just the public, but the victims that had been left behind from this terror attack and tell them hand-on-heart that our system and our laws allow these guns to be available and that was okay. Because it was not.

“I made a decision after that briefing that I would go down that day and, without having the chance to question the Parliament, know that Parliament would be with me. And they were.”

This knee-jerk approach to restricting firearm ownership is exactly what the modern gun-control movement wants in the U.S. In fact, we’ve seen a version of it at the state level. The unconstitutional NY SAFE Act was rammed through the state legislature in 2013 approximately one month after the mass killing at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

As with The Arms Amendment Bill, the SAFE Act was deliberately fast-tracked before emotions cooled and constituents could speak out to representatives about the significant flaws of the legislation.

Hogg, for his part, still claims that he is not trying to take anyone’s firearms. In a recent speech for the American Program Bureau, Hogg explained that he doesn’t favor disarming an individual unless they are a prohibited person or an individual at risk of being a danger to themselves or others. See the video below.

The problem with this stance is that one cannot simultaneous applaud a country for confiscating hundreds of thousands of firearms from its citizens on one hand, and then, on the other, lament that something similar isn’t being done here in the U.S. because the government is “owned by gun manufacturers.”

Hogg, if he wants to be taken seriously, should at least have the balls to admit that disarming Americans is the end game. Because parading around and pretending otherwise reeks of B.S.

    How about a Government that was to be “owned” by the citizens. Does that carry any weight in this day and age where we are more concerned about gluten intolerance than rights?

  • DAVID MILLER June 4, 2021, 6:42 am

    Faker he was not in school that day there is a interview early in coverage where he says his mother told him to go over there to get interviewed she is a big shot with one of networks to make him a anti gun star

  • Welsh Warrior May 28, 2021, 4:44 pm

    My dogs wanger is bigger than this sissies arms. What a disgrace to the male species..or whatever made up sex id this fruit identifies with.

  • Ray Gleaton Jr. May 27, 2020, 2:51 am

    If Hogg boy has so much praise for New Zealand, he is welcome to move there !! We Americans are sick of hearing how bad, this mutt thinks the USA is !!

    I’ve always said, Hogg looks like a ‘good little Nazi’, and is in reality, one.

  • David Welsh April 13, 2019, 11:33 pm

    David Hogwash is light in his loafers.

  • david huckabee April 13, 2019, 8:32 pm

    gee, another expert on solving problems due to his vast knowledge and EXPERIENCES in LIFE. somebody needs to ask him on camera what HE did during the SHOOTING. being home during the shooting and NOT experiencing the chaos personally, does NOT make him an expert on gun violence. being poised on stage, in front of an audience and speaking like a LEADER of society, does NOT add credibility. he will probably become a well known NAME in politics, due to his SPEAKING skills. he will be like SADDAM HUSSEIN OBAMA. a hollow man with NOTHING really to offer anyone. it is just a STAGE SHOW performance, like other CLOWNS.

  • Hondo April 13, 2019, 4:44 pm

    I have some advise for Mr. Hogg , if you’re unhappy with America , move your anti-constitution ass to New Zealand you little jerkoff.

  • St. Toes April 13, 2019, 3:48 pm

    For the Anti-2nd Amendment Fools, they don’t realize that guns go first, Speech Rights next, freedom to assemble, and then your Life, as in Dead, is next. The ”Hoggy Dude” thinks he’s going to be in ”Control” when that time comes? Agitators like Him are the first Ones to go, to their ”Happy Spiritual Home” (wherever that may be).

  • Lew Jamerson April 12, 2019, 5:30 pm

    Now from my understanding this idiot did’nt go to school the day of the shooting and he was friends with the shooter correct ? And did’nt he also post something about the shooting before it actually happened ? So why has’nt anyone investigated this little queen ? Withholding that type of information got them kids killed but was that part of his plan to become a so called celebrity .

  • john April 12, 2019, 4:08 pm

    put a bow on a turd , it’s still a turd! you want real world statistics , look at the uk , got rid of guns , now you got a knife problem , and now they want to ban knifes … look for yourself!<<<>>>

    but that plays well into AOC , get rid of cows , because it will make it way harder to enjoy your steak if you don’t have a knife….

  • Weeping Man April 12, 2019, 2:44 pm

    Hitler in a tuxedo. What next? This banty rooster needs a trip to the woodshed.

  • MAS April 12, 2019, 2:42 pm

    Quit giving this little weenie a voice. He wasn’t even at school the day many died. HE IS NOT A SURVIVOR of the shooting any more than the rest of the population in the world who were not there.

  • J Atwood April 12, 2019, 2:21 pm

    Lil’ Hitler Hogg, will say and do whatever it takes to be on TV.
    He doesn’t give a damn about guns or the people who died. All he cares about is #1 and a future TV/political career.

    He’s just following whatever bandwagon will make him the most famous.

  • todd meyer April 12, 2019, 12:56 pm

    R U KIDDING ME? If you want another country’s laws, go live in that country. Last time I checked NZ was not part of the USA.

  • Jeremy J April 12, 2019, 11:25 am

    Ok, I’ve had enough of this kid, he needs to just sit down somewhere and shut up. Sad thing is one day this kid will probably be in our government and maybe even be running for president. He’s seems to be the gun grabbers chosen one.

  • Mike Watkins April 12, 2019, 11:07 am

    It’s all winding down towards the end of the US as a Constitutional Republic. It probably started back in the Depression when govt/liberals told people, “Your situation—poverty, unemployment, etc.—is not your fault, so it’s not your responsibility to do anything to get yourself back on your feet. Here! Have some money. Have some free food. Have a free place to live. We will take care of you.”

    Now way too many feel entitled to all that. A-holes like Alexandria Occasionally-Coherent and Bernie Alz-Sanders appeal to those idiots.

    I’m thinking more all the time about the American Redoubt. We move there and start our own country with the right kind, the ORIGINAL kind of Constitution and laws, and expel those who can’t live with that.

  • D Grandy April 12, 2019, 11:00 am

    As Hitler said “You don’t need guns, we will protect you now, just get on the train!”

  • Big Al April 12, 2019, 10:34 am

    A moronic statement at best, especially in light of the numerous anti gun bills that have been pushed by the Democrats in just the last few decades.
    Such a statement suggests a small mind, or willingness to deceive and deflect, which to my mind is more egregious than a small mind.
    Silly boy, you have made yourself to be the willing fool, a tool of the Left that when used up, will be cast aside.

  • Kevin Tubbleville April 12, 2019, 10:31 am

    David will be the first to loose in life when America is thrown back into the 1800’s be it by stock market, war or nature, he will not eat, he will not defend himself or whatever he owns, his words will not work , he will be one of the first to not survive because he is nothing more than a clanging gong being blown in the wind. Who will feed you David when there is no Wal-Mart to run to ? You should wake up David you do not live in NeverEver Land.

  • D.J. April 12, 2019, 10:09 am

    Well ………. The Komsomol spokesman yet again opens ass , and
    inserts head .
    Is not master Hogg’s fifteen minutes of fame yet expired ?

  • Captain Dave April 12, 2019, 10:01 am

    First we need to bring back the Draft. Next, gather up all these little pukes who want to destroy our country and send them off to the front lines of whatever country needs armed personnel, where there is a good chance that their lives are in eminent danger. Oh, and since they are anti-gun, they’ll just have to fight without one. Good luck…

    • Martingard April 12, 2019, 2:04 pm

      Excellent idea but that little puke wouldn’t last a day in the military. Hmmm, even better yet.

  • Mr. Sparkles April 12, 2019, 9:22 am

    Who is Hogg?

  • paul April 12, 2019, 8:55 am

    You know you just egg this guy on by publishing his gibberish?

  • Gary Hull April 12, 2019, 8:44 am

    If Hogg and people like him disappeared most likely gun violence would greatly diminish. Why, because to some people their efforts glorify gun violence and sensationalism that some require. So you can also relate to the MSM as being responsible for gun violence as well. Gary

  • joefoam April 12, 2019, 8:30 am

    What struck me was the PM was uneducated about her own countrys’ laws concerning firearms ownership, and that the normal procedure for enacating laws were not followed. This is the tyranny that our forefathers were concerned about when they penned the 2A . As for Hogg, what he says is always incendiary, based on no facts. He needs to try and stay relevant but should be swept into the dustbin of history with all the other rabble rousers.

  • H. Clinton April 12, 2019, 8:11 am

    I’m starting to see why Jooze get their azzez kicked over their heads in every country they try to corrupt and control.

  • Eric R April 12, 2019, 8:10 am

    Fact: 4007 persons were killed in the US on motorcycles in 2010. 943 of those, nearly 25% were killed riding Supersport bikes (commonly referred to as crotch rockets) and the majority of those were under 30 years of age.
    Designed for racing, their engines produce more horsepower per pound than NASCAR engines and used ones can be picked up for relatively little cash making them very attractive to young riders.

    Bottom line: Far more young lives are lost to one particular type of motorcycle than one particular rifle. Seems it’s not the Gun manufacturers that “own” America after all.

    Come on David, just admit it. You could give a shit less about the lives….it’s all about the guns and your 2 minutes of fame!

  • Keith April 12, 2019, 7:43 am

    Well, Mr Hogg, if this country is not to your liking, you are free to move to another…

  • BigC April 12, 2019, 7:16 am

    This F’n Hog should go to New Zealand to get slopped and STAY THERE, we sure don’t need this publicity seeking POS here, we already have AOC & friends!!

  • Nobody April 12, 2019, 7:07 am

    He should go to New Zealand and live if he wants all guns confiscated. The problem is that they want the voting age to be lowered to 16 so that the brainwashed high school kids like this worthless Hogg can and will vote in the gun hating assholes trying to strip us of our guns. It’s not looking good for our future anymore. They don’t even teach much of the revolutions in history anymore about how this country became so great. We are about to have to prove what this country was founded and protected with in the not so distant future. It’s a sad time when so many people have forgotten what so many brave men and women have died to give them. Thank you to everybody who has served and sacrificed for our freedoms. I just wonder what they think about how this is all turning around on us. This will not go away and will tear this once great nation apart. I’m sorry that it has just about come down to the 2nd civil war. It will be a lot of wasted lives that should not have to be lost to prove this point

  • Ruger1 April 12, 2019, 6:57 am

    Why even give this Little Cockstain any Air Time?? By His Own Admission, His Little Ass Wasn’t Even There at The time of the Shooting!!!!!

    Our Constitution gives us the RIGHT to defend ourselves, and this ignorant buffoon doesn’t understand that, which is why he is so scary. The sheeple do not understand that he is trying to make them victims.

  • Ronald April 11, 2019, 9:45 am

  • Rez ipsa loquitur April 10, 2019, 7:49 pm

    Hogg is making his career on the misfortune and tragedy of others, the same old socialist bullshit ,give up your guns, global warming, racism. I think Hogg should take his powerful message of love to someplace that already has strict gun laws like California so that he can see how effective it is, some place like Murder Mountain in Humboldt county in Calif. the source of 80% of the U.S. weed. Maybe Hogg could make a difference there with his Hollywood millions, you know build a gun free community center, where he could lecture the locals on peace, love and understanding. What a fraud!

    • Paul Hillar August 7, 2020, 11:52 am

      NO, do not send that little ass hole here, we don’t want him either! We have enough commies here! Why do you idiots always say send them to CA.? Not everyone here is a communist, and the ones with the balls stayed and those without left! I guess your in the Nimby crowd, as long as it’s not in your back yard it’s fine!
