EXCLUSIVE TEXT: David Hogg Confirms His Body Guards Were Armed in NYC

Guns for Me, But Not for Thee

Big League Politics spoke exclusively today to the teenage face of gun control who has become a household name in the wake of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that killed 17 in Parkland, FL.

In his text response, David Hogg confirms that his body guards were indeed armed with guns.

Hogg, 18, was spotted in New York City with a retinue of security guards and publicists as he made his way to a Barnes and Noble bookstore to promote his new book, “#NeverAgain: A New Generation Draws the Line,” which he co-authored with his sister Laura.

Many news outlets speculated on whether or not Hogg’s body guards were armed, but none has confirmed it with the anti-gun activist himself.

BLP reached out to Hogg to see if he recognized his own hypocrisy of utilizing armed guards and he confirmed the speculation.

“The people alongside me were trained specialists that had gone through training with their weapons and were at all times being held accountable for their actions while armed,” Hogg said. “Our entire message is pro-second amendment, and if you take the time to look at the policies on our website, our message aligns completely with security officers carrying small arms to protect people who have been threatened by gun owners.”

We followed up with two questions. The first was whether teachers with special training should be allowed to carry weapons to protect their students. If special training is the threshold for carrying a weapon as Hogg suggests, then we should all be in agreement: training teachers to carry in schools will make children safer, just as Hogg’s trained bodyguards made him safer.

The second was whether Hogg’s message is actually “pro-Second Amendment” as he says. Hogg suggested that only those with training should be able to carry a weapon. Specifically, we asked him what he thought of Constitutional Carry laws passed in several states. Constitutional Carry laws dictate that special training is not necessary to purchase or carry a weapon, and that bearing arms is a fundamental American right granted by God and protected by the Second Amendment without restrictions that people like Hogg would like to implement.

Hogg did not respond to BLP’s follow-up questions.

Massachusetts Gun Store Remaining Open in Defiance of Governor’s “Non-Essential” Declaration

The Gunrunner isn’t closing its doors.

Published

on

A Massachusetts gun store is remaining open even after Governor Charlie Baker labeled firearm retail establishments “non-essential” and directive them to close under the commonwealth’s state of emergency declaration.

John Costa, owner of The Gunrunner in Middleboro, believes that the Second Amendment provides his gun store with authorization to remain open.

Costa explained that “under the second amendment we have every right to defend ourselves,” justifying the operations of The Gunrunner. Business has been booming at the store according to Costa, with unprecedented amounts of gun purchasers patronizing the establishment despite Baker’s command that they stay away.

Baker expressed discontent at a Wednesday press conference upon learning that some gun stores in the commonwealth were remaining open.

They shouldn’t have been open last week. The only folks on the firearm side that have been essential been in Massachusetts since we issued the initial order are manufacturers.

Costa is practicing social distancing measures, as well. He’s not even letting customers to enter the physical space of his store. Instead, potential gun buyers are describing the kind of gun they want for Costa to bring it out to them curbside. It’s hard to imagine more stringent social distancing measures being utilized by any business, but it’s not good enough for the commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The store has received a cease-and-desist order from town officials after declining to close in accordance with state directives. Gun stores aren’t included as essential retailers in the proclamation issued by Massachusetts’ nominally Republican governor, and he’s going to greater lengths to close them than progressive Democrats in states such as New Jersey and California. Governors and sheriffs in both states caved when the Trump administration declared firearms retailers to be essential businesses under updated DHS guidelines, but Baker is steadfast in insisting that gun retailers close.

Americans have shattered previous monthly records for firearms purchases during the month of March, showing a desire to lawfully acquire arms that correlates sharply with the coronavirus epidemic. With an unprecedented demand for guns among the public, policy makers should think twice about arbitrarily demanding the industry shut down.
