Many questioned anti-Second Amendment activist David Hogg’s acceptance to Harvard, which he announced via Twitter on Saturday, considering that he openly complained about his high school grades and the fact that he achieved only a 1270 on his SAT test.
“David Hogg is heading to Harvard despite an SAT score of 1270. The bottom 25% at Harvard have an average SAT score of 1460,” College Fix noted.

It was also widely reported that Hogg was rejected from several public schools in the University of California system.
But still, the left wing media swooned after Hogg announced that he was headed to the Ivy League school in Cambridge, Mass.
“Thank you all for the well wishes, I’ll be attending Harvard in the fall with a planned major in Political Science,” he said.

But it looks like Hogg might have to change his plans.
First noted by internet sleuth Kathy Zhu, Harvard does not offer a major in political science. Hogg must not have done his homework.
The school’s list of “concentrations,” or fields of study, does not include Political Science. The school does have a Government program.
The gaff on Hogg’s part is a perfect metaphor for his year in public life, doing activism work against the Second Amendment. A simple Google search would have told him that Harvard does not have the program of study in which he was interested. Similarly, he could learn through a bit of research that the vast majority of mass shootings happen in gun free zones, that the Second Amendment shall not be infringed or that violent crime has reduced in America while gun ownership has skyrocketed. (These are surely things that will not be taught at Harvard, either).
Instead, Hogg opened Twitter, typed his message and hit the send button without any investigation at all.
POLL: National Support for Gun Control Plummets Amid 2020 Coronavirus, Crime Surge, Race Riots
Support for this leftist policy is declining.
A new poll from Rasmussen Reports reveals that nationwide support for gun control has plummeted during 2020, with only 52% of Americans describing their support for “stricter gun control laws” this year. An identical poll in 2019 revealed that 64% of Americans supported stricter gun control in 2019, with 12% changing their position this year.
The Rasmussen poll also reveals that Americans who were already gun owners have armed themselves in increasing fashion this year. A massive 27% of Americans who already have guns in their house have bought at least one new one in the last six months, showing that the nation’s existing population of gun owners has become even more resolute in their support of the Second Amendment.
The chaotic events of 2020 have proved sufficient to fuel what many have identified as the greatest “panic buy” of firearms and ammunition in American history, with sales records being routinely crushed on a monthly basis by US gun buyers. Concerns largely related to coronavirus, nationwide race riots, and an increase in violent crime have led in great part to millions of first-time gun owners in the country, with women and citizens of liberal states such as California executing their rights to gun ownership in a manner never previously seen.
Major firearm and ammunition retailers continue to regularly sell out of their inventory, unable to meet the massive demand for guns. Production halts in gun and ammo manufacturing have also played a crucial role in eroding inventories, with coronavirus halting the supply chain for metals such as copper.
More than 1,000 Americans across the country were surveyed for the Rasmussen poll.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has consistently reiterated his support for strict gun control measures, advocating for an outright ban of so-called “assault weapons” owned by tens of millions of Americans.
