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.
Texas Governor Abbott Wants Texas to Be a “Second Amendment Sanctuary”
The Texas GOP needs to get its act together and start passing pro-2A legislation
Last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he wants to turn Texas into a Second Amendment sanctuary state.
Patrick Sviteck of the Texas Tribune reported on Twitter, “Abbott tells TPPF he wants to make TX a “2A sanctuary state” this session “so that no gov’t official at any level can come & take your gun away from you despite those ppl who say, ‘Heck yes, we’re gonna take your gun.’ We’re gonna say, ‘Heck no, you cannot take ppl’s guns'” in TX.”
Abbott’s quip about taking people’s guns was in response to Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke remarks during the 2019 Democrat presidential debates where he explicitly called for gun confiscation.

Abbott’s comment came after a number of Texas counties began to declare themselves as “Second Amendment sanctuaries” throughout 2020. Daniel Friend of The Texan reported that “By early 2020, commissioners in over 60 counties — often with the support of the county sheriff — had passed some sort of Second Amendment sanctuary resolution.”
Two elected officials have filed different versions of the Texas Firearm Protection Act, which Greg Abbott pushed back in 2013 when he was Attorney General. The TFPA is a piece of legislation that would ban law enforcement from enforcing federal gun control schemes “that purports to regulate a firearm, a firearm accessory, or firearm ammunition if the statute, order, rule, or regulation imposes a prohibition, restriction, or other regulation, such as a capacity or size limitation, a registration requirement, or a background check, that does not exist under the laws of this state.”
At a Texas Public Policy Foundation event, Abbott emphasized his pro-Tenth Amendment credentials by stating that “I still hold a record that will never be broken by anybody.I hold the record for the most lawsuits filed against Barack Obama — 31 legal actions against him.”
The Texas Governor added, “We had to because the actions he was taking trampled upon Texas’ liberties based upon the Tenth Amendment. We need to go back to the fundamentals of the Tenth Amendment and reassert that against any potential encroachments that we see under the Biden administration.”
The sanctuary movement is arguably one of the brightest spots for the right heading into the Biden era. Despite Democrat control at the federal level, there will be more paths for reform available at the state and local level. This should make Second Amendment operatives realize that not all politics is federal. Plus, gaining in power in D.C. necessitates having strong local political machines. Fighting Second Amendment battles at the state and local level is a good way to build a power base.
As cliche as it may sound, all politics is still local.
