Hogg Explains Why He Was Ready for Media Interviews Following Parkland

Hogg has been making the national media circuit on the anniversary of the Parkland massacre.

David Hogg was ready to launch his career in the public spotlight almost before the man who killed 17 of his teachers and classmates at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School had been taken into custody. Hogg appeared on multiple national news outlets hours after the massacre with a carefully crafted gun ban pitch the American public was ready and willing to hear.

One year after the tragedy, Hogg is still working the national media circuit. He’s flipped his experience at Parkland into an acceptance letter from Harvard, nearly one million Twitter followers, and national name recognition that will serve him in good stead during his inevitable run for office.

Hogg recently appeared on CNN to try to explain how he was so prepared to take advantage of the massacre.

“I think it was two classes I had taken throughout my high school career,” he said, “which were speech and debate, where we previously had to debate things like universal background checks and the digitization of ATF records. And also my experience in TV production as the school’s TV news anchor co-host and also news director.”

Hogg also appeared on MSNBC this week, where he argued that people who use an AR-15 for self-defense are “hunting a human being” because AR-15’s “have an effective range of over 1500 meters.”

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell asked Hogg about his experience working with the relatives of the 17 people killed in Parkland to pass gun ban laws in states around the country.

“Sometimes it does have to be state-by-state,” he said. “Even at the state level, sometimes they don’t want to work with us. That’s why in Florida yesterday along with several family members of people that were lost in the shooting at my high school, we introduced a ballot initiative that we are working on getting right now to ban assault weapons in the state like the one that the shooter at my high school used so that no other person can get their hands on them.”

“The truth of the matter is weapons like the AR-15 have an effective range of over 1500 meters,” he added, in his best high school speech and debate style. “If you’re using the weapon within an effective range of over 1500 meters you are not defending yourself, you are hunting a human being. And I don’t think any civilian needs to have their hands on a military weapon like that.”

While he’s expressed interest in running for national office, he’s rooting for Michelle Obama to run in 2020 to “end this madness already.”

    Using any weapon in self defense when under attack is NOT hunting. AR15s aren’t military weapons. They are semi-automatic rifles for civilian use. If you are scum enough to attack someone unprovoked then don’t complain that their weapon of defense is too accurate or efficient. Hogg is irrelevant except as a useful idiot for the left’s agenda.

    just look at this kid has no experience and look at the way he looks on the website ….why did his parents let him and his ..friends dress that way. as if he knew everthing. says alot about his parents i bet his pants are half down tennis shoes untied. typical know it all!!! turn your ballcap around! he is going just going for the money….just like all the rest of people that want a easy way out .before he points his finger , he should take a look at his self.

  • Greg February 18, 2019, 10:10 am

    David Hogg shows his ignorance by using liberal talking points with alternative “truths”. He needs to look up the definition of an assault rifle first but he is using the term to invoke emotion, not convey facts. The supersonic range of M193 ammunition from a 20 inch barrel will go sub-sonic at just over 1000 yards with an effective range of much less, probably half. These are the same hypocrites that want to take guns away from people to “save” lives but love to murder helpless, unborn children.

    • Neal March 8, 2019, 1:42 pm

      Army Docs state 600 meters as max effective range. There are some special, single load ammo being used in special competition heavy barreled rifles with a high rate of twist that will punch a target at 1000 meters. Not your typical AR. It would be nice if this infant wanna be would do his homework and have some, nay any, idea of what he is talking about. Most 5.56/.223 ammo is 55 grain full metal jacket (FMJ) being fired through a 1:12 rifled barrel falling into the 600 meter range. Most shooters, your average “I want an AR” types couldn’t “hold ’em and squeeze ’em” well enough to find a 6×6 foot target at 500 meters. As we learned in the Corps, the 500 meter line separates the Experts from the Marksman.

  • Dan Gore February 17, 2019, 2:22 pm

    Actually the mental defect is not realizing that you have the right to self defense! Hogg and his parents obviously have that defect. As do the Demoncrats! They all should be in the mental institution for thinking that these laws will fix the problem of criminals &violence. Want to send a message to the scum in America? Declare “open season” on criminals! Bet you couldn’t sell licenses fast enough!($1)each,no bag limits, no hour restrictions,any caliber, gage,or firearm capacity ok.

    I have been helping my son with his Social Studies class. Getting ready for civil war history.

    Kind of scary to look at some similarities of then and now. Leading up to the war people from big cities started to impose their beliefs on others. Making promises and only small amounts of changes at a time. Making agreements that people would still have their own way of life, but in the end went back on those agreements. The south noticed the writing on the wall and became nervous about the intent of the north. After the liberal north refused to accept voting results, the war finally started.

    I would never and will never condone slavery. I find it an appalling time in our history, that should be taught as such. However maybe there is another lesson as well? When you push your agenda onto law abiding people you can expect some push back.

  • e February 17, 2019, 11:54 am

    Sad that his school debate team allowed such misguidance. Schools are creating a lot of the Crazy Lefties. They will not teach reality. In the real world bad things happen everyday that can not be stopped by taking rights from the law abiding. Now he’s headed for liberal college!?
    Time to have a bill pass that requires schools to teach gun safety and realistic ways to deal with fear. Saying that all gun crime can be stopped yet arming school officers and other security forces is not realistic.
    As for his endorsement for Mike Obama 2020, bring it on!

  • Bobs your uncle February 17, 2019, 10:09 am

    This is showbiz, remember the old Hollywood adage “It doesn’t matter what they say about you, as long as they are saying something” The more outrages the shit they say, the more publicity they get. Think of the actor in Chicago until recently, you’d never heard of. This is a lot like 1950’s TV wrestling, the announcer says “He’s young, he’s tough, he’s gonna take your guns and kick your ass” Our reply, “BOOOO, BOOO

  • Brian February 16, 2019, 11:27 pm

  • Gary February 16, 2019, 7:30 pm

    Hogg is wwwaaaaaaayyyyyy Off on his “effective range” of the AR-15 Specs peg it at 300 Meters, So apparently the undereducated Motor-Mouth Learned NOTHING in High School. He will be as Popular as Robert Francis O’Rourke.
    with his plan to eliminate the Border Patrol and ICE Looks like Beat-Off O’Rourke forgot thr Coast Guard, too.

    • Rattlerjake February 17, 2019, 1:07 am

      Why in hell do people listen to anything from these leftist morons, especially when they have ZERO knowledge or experience with any weapons? He says an AR15 is effective to 1500 meters? I’ll bet he doesn’t even know how far a meter is! And if that range was true, then our military would have no need of 7.62 or .50 cal. rifles.

      • e February 17, 2019, 12:00 pm

        People pay attention and buy his BS because they are just as clueless. They will believe anything the computer,phone, tablet, or professor tells them without ever getting real evidence.

  • deanbob February 16, 2019, 5:17 pm

    Too few say a single word about all of the failures that lead up to this shooting, that had almost any single one of them been done, the shooting never would have taken place. But that is not part of their narrative nor does it serve their agenda to control, first a few guns; then more and more. 99.9% of all gun owners commit ZERO violence.

    But, how will the control those who will get their guns illegally?

  • G Wasno February 16, 2019, 2:30 pm

    Liberal school system ochistrated the whole thing….They all knew who he was & what he wanted to do. 20 plus police visits to his house & nobody searches his room for weapons ever ? 17 people MARTYRED on purpose for the ends GUN CONTROL !!! Open your eyes & start asking the REAL questions…Promise act !!! Dah Obama finds out about & promotes it !!! 17 more count of criminally negligent homoside or mansuaghter for Obama to add to 200 + in the gun running operation in Mexico & of course 4 counts Bengazie

  • Gourdhead February 16, 2019, 12:29 pm

    This little faggot ‘survivor’ wasn’t near the shooting scene and his 1500 meter range statement about AR’s is another lie of the many he has told. If AR owners were hunting humans, the little pissant wouldn’t be mouthing off in front of any camera he could find.

    Unfortunately all this talk about background checks is just talk. Unless you have a criminal record, or a domestic abuse charge, nothing shows on any record. You are just a ghost. Even schools don\’t report suspicious behavior unless its involving the police. The talk about mental health is the same thing. It costs money and the money just isn`t available. Its not important enough to the politicians .Also it might be a good idea to join the NRA whether you agree with their politics or not because having fifty million members or so would have a much larger power than the six million that they have now.Its cheaper than a couple hours of range time.

    • Edward A Allen February 24, 2019, 9:18 am

      There is more than enough money to fund mental health issues. Quit funding other nations and the various research projects and, of course, planned parenthood.

      Consider this – If you get physically injured at work in the state of California, you will be covered for life for that injury. If you are permanently disabled, you will get compensated for life.

      But! If you are mentally injured while at work, you are only covered for 3 years. After that, If you are permanently injured, you have to hope and pray that Social Security will grant you disability payments.

      Mental harm is harder to recover from than physical harm.

    I’m pretty sure a 5.56 would still be effective on mice, or other small mammals at 1500 meters, but you would have to have great aim! I hate it when idiots talk to other idiots, as they believe whatever shit comes out of the talking idiots mouth. You want to see scary? Click on the last Twitter feed at the end of the article. Moron after moron talking about what a great President Michele Obama would make. There are far too many brain-washed or brain dead idiots allowed to vote. There should be some sort of competency test to vote, this is getting frightening how many sheeple believe anything they see on the “News”.

    Let’s get off our butts and do something. Since he is making claims that an AR can ‘hunt humans’ at 1,500 m, how about we wager him to hit a man sized target at that distance. I’ll let him use the 16″ 5.56 mm AR of his choice and give him 5 tries. I’ll put up the first $100, who is with me?

    • Lorrie Stirling February 15, 2019, 9:01 pm

      I’ll put up the second.!

    • Neal March 8, 2019, 1:51 pm

      I’m in, easiest money I’ll ever make. Hmmm, maybe we can talk him into giving us odds. If he is so confident in the range and ability of the AR we should get a 10 to 1 payout when he misses. With every miss, we move the target 100 M closer and the bet is double or nothing. By the time he misses at 1000 m my $100 becomes $32K and over $1M when he misses at 500 m.

    • Bob Ailanjian October 15, 2019, 9:42 am

      He’d never get a shot off. Try to hand him an AR and He’ll scream like a little girl and run away, leaving a wet yellow trail a mile wide behind him.

  • DocLoch February 15, 2019, 5:42 pm

  • Oldwestman February 15, 2019, 2:35 pm

    Hey kid do me a favor, go out in the real world and measure off 1500 meters, and then look at a human sized target with your naked eye, can’t see it too well? You shouldn’t shoot your mouth off about something you know nothing about. I’ll bet you don’t even know how much that .22 center fire drops at 500 meters let alone over a thousand. The laws of physics work on bullets regardless of what you think. You only make yourself look like a fool when you say stuff like this.

    “The AR15 has an effective range of 1500 meters”… god this kid is stupid, like most liberals. Even 762×51 is only good to 1000 meters in most cases.. 5.56 is good to about 500 meters .. especially out of a 16inch barrel

    • ArturS February 15, 2019, 6:49 pm

      Do you find yourself in the target of a wild boar with 500 meters without an optical sight from AR-15 in 223? I’m having a hard time with the X 5 optical sight in the 7.62 x 39 caliber at 500 yards. AR-15 is a civil variant of м4, tactical weapon for the city positional battle. 100-300 yards. These rifles are bought for sports shooting, not to protect life and home. The kid’s just very cowardly. Sigmund Freud explained it well. The best semi-automatic weapon for protection of the House (enclosed premises) is AK 47. You can take it for a barrel and hit it. He’s probably not breaking up. )))))

He stated as much during one of his first interviews so I wish everyone would stop calling him a “shooting survivor” because he is nothing of the sort! He’s just a loud mouth little s**t who’s mother worked for CNN and couldn’t wait to use his deceased school mates to run his ignorant mouth!

      Nobody disputes he survived an awful and senseless shooting, but depriving law abiding citizens of their constitutional rights isn’t the answer.

It’s like Thomas Jefferson said (I’m paraphrasing) When the government fears the people we have democracy, when people fear the government there’s tyranny.! People have a right to protect themselves from criminals who are armed with ar 15’s why should we be at the disadvantage..?

    • Rick February 15, 2019, 4:04 pm

    • Dennis Diggett February 15, 2019, 4:25 pm

      Pete, the purpose of the 2nd Amendment is not to give you the right to hunt wild boar or shoot a burglar in your bedroom. The purpose of the 2nd Amendment is give citizens the ability to prevent their subjugation and annihilation by an out of control dictatorial or genocidal government; for that you need massive firepower, at a minimum AR-15s in .556 as well as .762. A few .50 cal rifles would also be most beneficial.

    • Greg February 15, 2019, 4:48 pm

      Why do people think doing wrong, or unconstitutional or useless things is somehow better than doing NOTHING? The gun grabbers scooped this kids up as their mouthpieces and taught then everything to say. For the most part the things they support won’t accomplish reducing a single life and they are against the actual thing that might save lives.
      It’s stupid backwards thinking liberalism. YOU WILL NEVER get all the guns so you should stop wasting time and effort on that fantasy. Better to focus on enforcing the laws we have (which they don’t) implementing mental health programs (and not just in school), Gun safety.

      Parkland was failed by the system and NOTHING they talk about fixes any of those failures no, Doing Something isn’t better than doing nothing and gun laws make as much sense on this as banning cars would to stop drunk drivers.

If he thinks an AR is something that anyone in their right mind would take into combat he is just plain ignorant. He also has no understanding of what self-defense is and why the AR is a very good choice, much better than a shotgun if the truth be told. The AR-15’s .223 cal. round does not penetrate walls very well unlike a 12 ga. shotgun loaded with buck or a slug which can easily penetrate walls and other people you don’t want hurt. If people would only educate themselves about firearms and what they can and cannot do we would not have people spreading silly and scary false information.

    How can a nice young girl go so wrong?

  • ~ Occams February 15, 2019, 11:10 am

    Since most of you here are pretty unaware of the actual facts and truth regarding these False Flag, scripted events (like how many of you so-called ‘shooters’ even recognized a belt-fed 7.62 in the famous ‘Vegas/Paddock nonsense???), so if any of you care to learn and wake up BEFORE you lose everything, and through your own ignorance ‘left-handedly’ assist in this nonsense;

    Hogg’s ‘closet video’ was actually shot IN THE MORNING, BEFORE THE EVENT.

    Yes. Really. He asks the girl he’s interviewing for her permission and talks about it being 9:32am.

    “At the 0:45 mark, Hogg identifies the girl as Alex Vieux. He says:

    “This is Alex Vieux. This recording was taken at 9:32, February 14, 2018. Alex, are you okay with me recording this?”

    I’d say it’s time to start learning the truth rather than being sheep and patsies for their gun-grabbing agendas – but it’s already too late, I’d say, since Mr. 2nd Amendment ‘Trojan Horse Trump’ seems willing sign any and all gun-grab bills:

  • Michael Helms February 15, 2019, 10:59 am

    When I was Master Hogg’s age I was a USMC rifleman serving in Vietnam. I had an M-16 that I DID use to hunt human beings. Of course said human beings were also hunting me. My M-16 even had a selector switch that on occasion came in handy. I had so much fun hunting down human beings.
    Back in those halcyon days of 1967-68, I was old enough to hunt human beings, but not old enough to vote for those who ultimately sent me to that happy hunting ground. In fact, I was twenty-two years old before the first election rolled around where I was old enough to vote. The fact Master Hogg wants that Obama broad to be president says a lot. I’ll bet he goes to bed dreaming of Miss AOC every night. Thinking of serving with her probably puts him in a continual state of rut. Ah, our country’s future is surely in good hands for the future. So, dream on, Master Hogg. If you happen to need a good weapon, I’ll sell you one. But hey, that won’t be necessary. Your bodyguards will all be well-armed, won’t they?

    • Martingard February 15, 2019, 2:00 pm

      Mike, you nailed it! An AR doesn’t even come close to an assault weapon. I carried a M-60 in `nam, `66-67. Now that was an assault weapon! M-16s with a selector could lay down some fire as did the M-14. I preferred the
      M-14 over the two but that M60 was totally awesome. Hogg is a paid mouth and will one day no longer be paid. Lets hear him then, if he’s still breathing.

  • MiamiNice57 February 15, 2019, 10:38 am

    Many commentators have attacked the Kid on his looks and intentions.The message as usual has been lost.While DJT is ranting about the one offs that are killed by minority’s, our home grown citizens have killed 40K last year.The issue isn’t the kid, it’s our inability to separate truth from fiction or going into our coveted alternative realitiesSandy hook, MSD, Las Vegas, Orlando all have one thing in common.A person who has lost their way, lacked love & understanding and had a wish to know what it’s like to hunt humans.We need mental health treatment & support for these folks that are ostracized.Wouldn’t it be a hoot if Hogg went nuts and started shooting all those who have belittled, bullied or disrespected him on this thread?Common sense and acceptance is where we can find common ground for solutions to our entitled attitudes.I love my toys, they are part of my retirement plan.No solution and a gun ban would seriously affect me.We’re headed that way because of the hostility on this thread.Us vs them.Wake the hell up!

    • theincrowd February 15, 2019, 1:20 pm

      Please note that of that nearly 40,000, two thirds were suicides. Take the suicides away and that results in 4 gun deaths per 100,000 people.

      And very well should the President rant about the 3,650 killed and the over 30,000 children sexually molested by illegal aliens every year. Gun homicides run about 1/3 of auto deaths. Considering that the estimate is that there are @300 million guns in civilian hands in the US, if there was a problem with guns the bodies would be stacked ten deep in every street in the country. Orlando was an Islamic terrorist attack, not just a mass shooting. As to Las Vegas both the local cops and the feds have now closed their investigations, both with a finding of no known motive. You mention “Us vs them” which is true. But is it true because they attacked us by trying to remove a natural right to self defense with a Constitutional guarantee that protects the tools we can use to effect that defense.

  • ToolsforLiberty February 15, 2019, 10:29 am

    If he and his leftist friends are successful in passing any of the restrictions he is aiming for, it won’t matter. It will be unenforceable. Gregg Abott has in TX has already openly stated he will nullify ans refuse to enforce any and all additional measure in his state and will direct state law enforcement agencies not to work with Fed. law enforcement agencies in enforcing their measures. So. If anything Mr. Hogg in your success, you will be inciting the very “madness” you claim to want to end.

    • CharlieKing1 February 15, 2019, 1:03 pm

      ToolsforLiberty- with all due respect, I’m from Texas and I don’t doubt what you say about Gov. Abbott. However, can you cite the quote or provide me a link to his quote? I’d like to run with this quote in some of my replies to the nay sayers. In fact, I’ve written Gov. Abbott asking if we could turn all of Texas into a sanctuary state for gun owners. Wouldn’t that be a hoot? I’m really concerned with the way all of this is heading, we’ve got this young Hogg guy who is still wet behind the ears with no real life experience and Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo cheer leading for more gun control instead of crook control.

    Hogg, 1500 meters? Do the math 4950 feet, 5280 feet is a mile, you can’t kill a drop at 300 meters, with a 30.06 if you even know what that is drops 36+” at 1000 yards, In order to be a good debater you have to know what you are talking about. Being young and stupid is the only smart thing to say about you. I have never heard an accurate statement from an anti gunner because you have never shot a rifle or you would know ballistic tables, such as caliber to bullet drop. Long range shots are never taken with an AR because they don’t shoot that far. But just for your 15 mins. of fame, you just show you are as uninformed as all anti gunners. Do some research if you can actually read. Son you should be castrated, then banned from all office. What do you expect to do about the millions of rifles already sold. What part of shall not be infringed mean to you. There in the constitution it also says you can’t take someones property. My AR has about 1800.00 tied up into it. That is just one gun. This country can not afford to purchase these weapons from us. You need to grow up, shut up, personally (just my humble opinion) you were to die tomorrow 6 million NRA members and others that aren’t members would cheer a loud shout. The day after guns are banned a new civil war will break out. We have the biggest standing army of any nation, you want my gun, don’t burn your fingers cause it will be hot, plenty of ammo makes that possible, but you can only have by pulling it from my stiff rigor fingers. You first kid. If anti gunners had had a brain they would just pull it out and play with it.

    • MiamiNice57 February 15, 2019, 10:55 am

      You know the kids dad is ex-FBI?Expect a visit from LEO for your short sighted rant against a 17 YO.How would you feel if an unknown keyboard warrior threatened your kid several times?It ain’t the kid, it’s the message.We have a violent citizenry which is unable to communicate effectively as you’ve so eloquently expressed.Common sense background checks, that aren’t based on the honor system might help curve those new applicants that shouldn’t own a gun.Our rights can be infringed and taken if we continue to attack and not listen.There is a middle ground should we choose to leave the comfort of our caves.Grow the hell up, attacking the kid doesn’t help our position.BTW I build & reload, my retirement plan is partially based on my ability to off load as needed.A ban would really put a crimp in that plan.

    David Hogg is a beta male version of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a petulant, narcissistic child who thinks the world needs him ” to fix it”. You be sure to thank his parents and Broward county school district for the indoctrination of, the lack of intelligence and complete lack common sense so visible in this permanent man child. Also thank Mom’s Demand Action / Bloomberg for their contribution to this nonsense.

  • D.J. February 15, 2019, 9:56 am

    Does this child , Master Hogg , understand that 1500 meters is 1,640.42 yards ?
    That shot MAY be possible with EXTENSIVE match graded modification. But I
    am more than sure that a weapon generally designed for 400 meter
    effectiveness in a combat situation could not make said shot .
    Besides , the cost for that sort of customization would be well above the means
    of the average ” plinker ” or criminal.
    Again , this future politician is behaving in a hyperbolic manner . How sad .

  • AJ February 15, 2019, 9:54 am

        He can exercise his 1st Amendment right all he wants, right up to the point where he seeks to violate MY rights, including the right to keep and bear arms, which is God-given and unalienable, recognized and guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment.

        It sounds like your position is that the 2nd Amendment (and the God-given Right it protects) is less important that Hogg’s exercise of the 1st Amendment. I’m sure that’s not the case, but that’s what it sounds like.

        The 1st Amendment doesn’t exist without the 2nd Amendment. Without arms, we would have no Constitution OR 1st Amendment, and we would still be a British colony.

        If he has the audacity to abuse the 1st Amendment by seeking to destroy the 2nd Amendment, should the 2nd Amendment not be defended?

    Early on, the first thing I noticed about his comments in the TV interviews, was that they came right out of the Bloomberg gun-control propaganda. In this article he says that he read things to prepare for the debates in school events. Perhaps that is where he got so much of the Bloomberg angle–however, the NRA had debunked that stuff.

  • AmericanVet February 15, 2019, 8:39 am

    Does it really come as any surprise that a strange, unpopular kid, who was rejected by his chosen University (and ranted about it with indignation to the media), would see a personal opportunity in tragedy? That he would use mass murder like a cheap prop; climbing over the corpses of slain classmates and exploiting their memory, to reach the only pinnacle he could ever hope to achieve? That he would desperately grab at any opportunity to escape the obscure anonymity he was destined to; even if it meant being an ignorant, vulgar, grandstanding fool making a public spectacle of himself on national television?

    Like a looter rifling through a family’s devastated, still-smoldering home, in search of valuables after a fire, Hogg reduces to political currency, the painful loss parents, families and friends of murdered students still feel very deeply, and always will. Because he isn’t doing it for them; and, it isn’t about guns either. No, this is all about awkward and insecure David Hogg, finally getting HIS lucky break; HIS chance to be famous and bask in the spotlight; to defiantly thrust HIS fist in the air, and rebel against authority with everyone watching; to see HIS name in the paper and feel, for once, like somebody important.

    This is David Hogg’s only chance to BE somebody; to be noticed. To wield and brandish the power he perceives leftist media exposure has given him, with the same manic glee as a lunatic shooter recklessly brandishing a loaded weapon in a crowd.

      But wait until they ( the media, politicians and leftist) define gun ownership as a “mental defect” Don’t think so? Federal law prohibits firearm possession by individuals who have been “committed to a mental institution” or “adjudicated as a mental defective.” so it’s not a far stretch for them to declare every gun owner crazy and with William Barr, the architect of the Ruby Ridge slaughter is now A.G, prepare for it to get worse for gun owners.

    • MiamiNice57 February 15, 2019, 9:53 am

      Hmm, as an avid gun enthusiast I can tell your comment is based on emotion and not facts.Effective range is based on the proficiency of the shooter & the ballistics of the round.
      Optimal gun care and type of sights used go a long way to get that 800 target.
      Most shooters won’t achieve a 100 target.But those of us who have range time in the 1000’s of hours can and do achieve upwards of 1000.
      I build & reload
      The kid should look at the problem “mental health” that’s the road to redemption in our great country.

        It is absurd to imagine the intent of the founders would be different depending upon the type of weapons available at the time. The point of the 2nd Amendment was for “the people” to be armed similarly to the army so they could effectively resist said army.

      Sure, little hitler-hogg is riding his opportunity just like Gore and others getting fed money from the left to spread misinformation and lies about guns.

    Liar, liar, pants on fire. The maximum effective range of an AR-15 rifle is 400-600 yards. The maximum effective range of the .338 Lapua Magnum round is @1500 yards. Snipers use this round for long shots. Hogg is making up his own facts to suit his agenda.

      Yup.. Hogg needs a hug. LOL

      I’ve read that the AR-15 round, 5.56 or .223, is actually a relatively small size ammunition. Sure it will kill if the shot is well place, but one of it’s intentions as a small round was to maim and cause more battle injuries which takes more effort and resources for a army to take care of the wounded then of the dead.

        You are correct.
        The .556 round is the diameter of a .22 cal bullet.
        The difference is the weight, shape and outer casing that makes the round an effective bone crushing over penetrating round.
        The 223 has less boom in the chamber due to the primer.
        You can shoot 223 from a 556 chamber but not the other way around.
        Chamber damage can make the weapon inoperable or cause a catastrophic failure that can injure or kill the shooter.

    More like an effective range of 1,500 feet

    According to the sheriffs press conference and comments following the shooting, he said the shooter used a .22 cal firearm.

    I believe it was further identified as a S&W AR-15 22

    • Pseudo February 15, 2019, 8:55 am

      I have been trying to find out about it possibly being a .22. Anyone have any links about it being a .22?

    • MiamiNice57 February 15, 2019, 10:19 am

      A S&W AR 15 in .223 is effectively the same as an AR in the .556 chamber.The difference between the .223 & .556 is that the .556 chamber can accommodate a higher primer detonation.More powder Is effectively burnt quicker and the projectile goes faster & farther.
      .556 uses military grade Ammo whereas the .223 will eventually fail.There’s a 3rd option which is the Wylde chamber which can shoot both types of ammo just like the .556 chambered weapon.

      • Pseudo February 15, 2019, 1:05 pm

        That is not what I am looking for, but was it an actual S&W AR style rifle in .22 caliber.

    Classic, how to build a career on the tragedy of others. Blah blah, blah rhetoric and yet, no real solution. Millions of dollars collected by these activists. Real solutions ignored because they don’t fit their politics.

    • MiamiNice57 February 15, 2019, 10:25 am

      I wonder???
      If Hogg would have killed 17 bad guys singlehandedly would you be so dismissive?Or would you be praising him for a job well done?There still would be 17 families affected & 17 dead.I guess it’s perspective.Can’t have it both ways.

      • ljvarney February 15, 2019, 12:16 pm

        Hogg has killed no one…yet!
