Gun control activist David Hogg has spent months attacking the National Rifle Association. Turns out, he did a very poor job. The NRA has just made an incredible announcement. Hogg and his buddies are quaking in their boots.
We all know the gun control movement is a sham. Basic facts prove that taking guns away from citizens makes them less safe. When Americans are properly trained and armed, criminals and terrorists have no power. In fact, these scum look for opportunities to attack defenseless victims. A gun-carrying patriot is their biggest fear.
Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg doesn’t think that way. He used the attention he got from the tragedy to push an anti-gun agenda. The hacks at CNN just loved that, and they made him a star. But, as Hogg went on and on about keeping students safe, he never bothered to confront the real problem: mass shooters. Instead, he blamed the NRA, an organization that fights to protect the Second Amendment.
It’s funny how that always happens. The left never blames the actual criminals, like mass shooters, Islamic terrorists, or criminal aliens. They always push solutions that punish the victims — and the rest of America. Hogg and the recent gun control fad never stopped blaming the NRA. They thought their little clout with the liberal media would be enough to destroy that group for good.
Sorry, Hogg, that didn’t happen. In fact, all the hate towards the NRA and Second Amendment has woke many Americans up. They suddenly realized their freedoms were in jeopardy. So, what did they do? They started supporting the NRA. A lot. A heck of a lot. In fact, March was a record-breaking month for the NRA. In fundraising.
Looks like Hogg is one of those one-hit wonders, who never even got a hit.
The National Rifle Association on Tuesday announced that its Political Victory Fund had a banner month in March, raising $2.4 million, which is $1.5 million more than it raised in March 2017.
McClatchy reported that most of the donations were less than $200. The money from the fund is earmarked for political campaigns. The donations were made after the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Fla., which prompted a nationwide gun debate.
The report pointed out that gun control groups have fallen short of such fundraising numbers. Everytown for Gun Safety’s Political Action Fund, for example, raised $13,580 in March, the report said.

What’s really key about the report is the size of the average donation. While the left often gets support from a few big donors (like Hollywood and Silicon Valley elites), the NRA was getting small donations, from a lot of people. Regular Americans were digging into their pockets to passionately support a cause that they believed in.
That echoes the fund-raising support that Donald Trump received during the election. Most of his donations were small, around $200. But he raised millions of dollars to crush Hillary Clinton.
Also interesting to note is how much more the NRA raised compared to gun control groups. It seems like most Americans aren’t interested in causes that erase their freedoms. Imagine that!
We all knew that the “March For Our Lives” movement was an empty hoax. It was crafted by left-wing Socialists who wanted to make it seem like millions of teenagers were against guns. They hoped all the attention the media gave it would convince (or most likely, shame) the rest of America to support gun control. But much like their tactics during the 2016 election, it was all noise, no substance.
Liberals still think they can control Americans through the media. They thought that if we saw a few sad kids on TV, we’d willingly give up our gun rights. They think if they can make enough noise, we all have to fall in line. It didn’t work in 2016 and it doesn’t work today.
The record-breaking month the NRA enjoyed is proof of that. In fact, all the noise the left made encouraged more donations. The very attempts to destroy the NRA helped it in unprecedented ways. Pretty amazing, if you ask me.
So, what will the left do next to destroy our freedoms? Chances are, it will backfire in the most stupendous of ways.
