David Hogg just cannot help looking foolish. Praises Chicago’s Program to Stop Gun Violence – Gets a Brutal Reality Check from Twitter

Sharing is Caring!

The Parkland school shooting survivor has taken on a career pushing for gun control legislation, and supporting any initiative to that end. However, he stepped into a steaming pile of reality when he tried to voice his support for a program to end gun violence – in Chicago.

In case you’ve forgotten, Chicago is America’s leading gun violence city, despite having the nation’s most restrictive gun laws. It is often pointed to by gun rights supporters that the real problem is the person behind the gun, not the weapon itself.

It seems odd, then, that Hogg would use Chicago as a model for how things should be. Or maybe it was just more lazy keyboard activism on his part.

The “Cure Violence” initiative sounds like a noble one – an attempt to get at the root cause of violence. They seem more intent on focusing on behavior than actual guns, but their effort may be tainted by affiliating themselves with David Hogg’s crusade against gun ownership.

“Cure Violence stops the spread of violence by using the methods and strategies associated with disease control – detecting and interrupting conflicts, identifying and treating the highest risk individuals, and changing social norms – resulting reductions in violence of up to 70%,” the Cure Violence website reads.
Considering the rate of gun violence in Chicago, however, can their efforts there really be seen as effective? The campaign will likely have to prove itself before it deserves to become a model for the country, as Hogg suggests.

Either way, Hogg’s endorsement ignores the realities on the ground in Chicago – likely because the gun control initiatives he endorses nationwide aren’t working there.

Politicians know each day of inaction is killing innocent American children. They need to pass legislation for gun sense or funding for behavior intervention programs like @CeaseFireChgo.

The tweet was followed by the obvious response – do we really want to follow the lead of ANYTHING Chicago does?

Seriously, you are going to follow how it is done in Chicago?!?!

Tweeting about the illegal guns in Chicago won’t do a Damm thing. Bringing in the national guard will.

You know the majority of the murders in Chicago are commited by dudes who are Not allowed to have guns right?

Some challenged Hogg to put his money where his mouth is, if he really supports the Chicago program and wants to end gun violence.

When are you going to march in the south side of Chicago?

They need to #bangunfreezones. BTW, Snowflake, #Chicago is run by @TheDemocrats. You better be protesting up in there if you want to be taken seriously.

Others wondered why Hogg has the knack of tweeting about every incident of gun violence – except for the multiple shootings in the gun control zone of Chicago. They theorize that the entire city undermines his talking point that gun bans work.

Not a word ever about this, proving your far left agenda

Some wondered, if David Hogg is so intent on saving the lives of innocent children, where is his opposition to abortion?

And overturn Roe v. Wade, which is killing 3,000 a day

How about abortion davyboy

And, 3,000 innocent unborn American children are killed by abortion everyday! Time to do something about it. #DefundPP!
End Roe vs Wade!

And then there is the problem that has plagued this controversy from the beginning – the myth of gun free zones.

By forcing school children into soft targets 5 days a week only keeps liberal politicians safe.

Gun free zones are killing American children. Children are killing American children. Easy accessibility to schools is killing American children. What specifically are your proposals? I’ve yet to hear them.
