Apparently it takes their kind of people to be killed for them to take action?
It took a horrifying massacre for these kids to be thrust into the national spotlight. Would you have paid 5 seconds worth of attention to them otherwise? No, of course you wouldn't. Have you paid attention to those who try to improve inner-city safety for black people? Again, no, you have not.

Whataboutism isn't an argument, it's a diversion tactic.

There's never a shortage of venom spewed on CD, particularly in the P&OC sub-forum (which is why I take frequent breaks), but, quite frankly, this is a new low, OP. It's disgusting.

I think most of the haters on here are simply jealous of this young man's youth, his intelligence, and the fact that he, like many of these kids we've heard speak, show undeniable potential for great success and leadership. Maybe they're much more confident, eloquent, and unflappable at their tender age than you were at the same age -- or your current age. These kids are impressive, and it's obvious you're seething with resentment.

I see..Hogg calls ALL NRA members "child killers" and no one says a word..Laura responds to something Hogg himself said, and she is called a hate filled monster...maybe Hogg needs to issue a public apology

She's a sociopath so she cannot stop the puke that comes out of her mouth. When did she become the official spokesperson for the NRA? After or before she decided to go down on her knees for them?

Most of these enlightened kids haven't been around for decades. That would be why they are kids, and not adults.

Oh yes. Each and every one of them. That's clearly what he meant to imply. You, personally. He thinks you kills children. Yep, you're the victim, congrats.

You need to get off alt-right and conspiracy websites, because that has been proven false.
Laura's apology (I actually think she is one of the better contributors on Fox) wasn't authentic. She was trying to not lose advertising money.

Irrespective of your opinion on guns, Hogg deserves mad props for this. Laura tried to clown on him, and he ****ing demolished her. Is it 8 advertisers who already pulled ads from her show? Taken down by a kid who didn't even get into college.

They were 50 dead Bostonians last year, some killed in my own neighborhood, what will it take for those deaths to be thrust into the national spotlight? Do they all need to be killed at once?

I don't own a gun and have no problem with these protests but this kid is going off script.

No, but it certainly isn't the "B.S." that you think these children magically know it to be.

He insulted every law abiding gun owner in the U.S. whom have done nothing wrong. Then he tells them he wants to take their lawfully owned guns away by force. So we, and people in the media should sit idly by, and just shut up, and take it? Hell no!
