Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting survivor David Hogg tweeted on Friday that 'you're a terrible shot' if you need an AR-15 to defend yourself.

The shooting survivor turned activist responded to the tweet claiming an AR-15 is similar to a handgun because it only fires one bullet with each pull of the trigger.

The future Harvard student tweeted earlier how he doesn't want to take anyone's firearms because he'd grown up cleaning and shooting guns.

But Hogg responded saying he needed more target practice if you need an AR-15.

Hogg's tweet came not long after president Donald Trump invited two people who used an AR-15 to stop attacks on stage with him at the National Rifle Association's Annual Meetings and Exhibits.

Oklahoma County Reserve deputy, Mark Vaughan who responsible for preventing a knife attack that took place at work with his AR-15 that he had in his car, and NRA firearms instructor, Stephen Willeford, who topped the mass shooting at a Sutherland Springs, Texas; both shared their stories on stage with Trump.

"I immediately entered a building and ran down a hallway," Vaughan said.

"And saw a man attacking a woman, in the neck and head, with a large knife. I yelled.

"He stopped, paused for a moment, and ran at full speed towards me. At about 18 feet, I fired three rounds from my AR-15 carbine."

"I ran out the door, and I told my daughter to load another magazine for me ... the Holy Spirit took over me at that moment, and as I ran across the street, I yelled out," Willeford explained. "

"The gunman heard me inside, so did some of the people from the church, so did my own daughter.

He came running out of the church and started shooting at me. I put two shots, center mass. He stopped shooting at me, ran to his vehicle."

Vaughan and Willeford have been credited with saving lives when they used their AR-15s to stop the attacks.
