In light of the recent basketball game between Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, conservative activist CJ Pearson has officially challenged gun control activist David Hogg to a one-on-one basketball game.
Me and you, David.
1 on 1.
— CJ Pearson (@thecjpearson) June 20, 2018
Hogg, who is 18 years old, should have the advantage against 15 year old CJ Pearson, right?
While no details beyond a Tweet have come out, if the game is similar to that of the one between Cruz and Kimmel, there will be a charity incentive. Both Kimmel and Cruz agreed that the loser would donate $5,000 to the (non-political) charity of the others choosing. Ted Cruz, who won the game, chose to support Generation One, a ministry that helps children living in poverty conditions in the Third Ward of Houston, TX.
The game between Kimmel and Cruz was between two people who disagree vehemently on politics, yet they found a way to make it a positive event. The same could possibly be done between Hogg and Pearson.
David Hogg first came into the public eye after the shooting in Parkland, Florida, in which he was a student at the school. Hogg was perhaps the most visible face of the students calling for gun control, and later leading an anti-gun march in Washington, D.C.
In contrast, CJ Pearson is a conservative activist who made his fame through a series of online videos calling out former President Barack Obama. Despite being only 15 years old, he is seen as one of the most articulate voices for conservative principles, and along with that comes his staunchly pro-gun beliefs.
Big League Politics looks forward to this basketball game occurring, and will keep you updated on any developments.

Trump Administration Withdraws Nominee for ATF Director After Evasive Gun Control Answers in Senate
Chuck Canterbury avoided answering questions on gun control.
The Trump administration is withdrawing its nomination for Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, after Chuck Canterbury alienated several Republican Senators during his July confirmation hearing for refusing to give an answer to questions regarding his personal opinion on gun laws.
Canterbury avoided answering several questions from GOP senators during his testimony, claiming he didn’t want to express any opinions that contrasted with the stated policy views of the Fraternal Order of Police. Canterbury is the former President of that organization.
Senators such as Louisiana’s John Kennedy questioned Canterbury’s evasive testimony in July.
“I like straight answers, and you are being evasive,” said Kennedy. “You have been nominated to run ATF. I think every member of this panel, both my Democratic friends and Republican friends who have feelings about the Second Amendment, are entitled to know both morally and legally what you believe.”
Canterbury had been asked numerous times about his policy views on matters such as banning so-called “assault weapons.”
The ATF has tremendous power over the American gun industry and Second Amendment community, and in some cases have banned previously legal forms of weapons with impunity. Some firearms enthusiasts have become increasingly skeptical of the agency in recent years, and conservatives have sought additional oversight. High-level ATF leadership have spoken of what they believe to be a conspiracy against their agency, further alienating gun rights supporters.
The Trump administration formally informed the Senate that it was withdrawing Canterbury’s nomination on Tuesday. His ambiguous views towards common gun control proposals had ensured his nomination was stalled, and now pulled.
