David Hogg Wants His Body Dumped on NRA's Doorstep if He's Killed
Far-left anti-gun activist makes bizarre request 'in the event' he is assassinated
Student-turned-anti-Second Amendment activist David Hogg has made a bizarre request that his body is dumped on the doorstep of the NRA's headquarters in Virginia "in the event" that he's "killed."
For those who missed it, Hogg was a student at the site of a mass shooting in February 2018 - Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Following the shooting, he emerged as a vocal opponent to guns and the National Rifle Association.
He’s managed to keep his name in the headlines time and time again, often due to his controversial statements, his anti-gun rhetoric, his misunderstanding facts, and his public gaffes - his speech telling Canadians to vote against Trump in the 2020 election was a classic.
His latest bid to stay relevant came in the form of a number of tweets focused on people being killed, one of which dealt with his own death specifically.
“If I die from gun violence I want my photo published, there will be those that say you are politicizing tragedy,” he wrote.
“They are wrong, not doing anything to stop this violence is politicizing tragedy.”
“In the event I am killed, organize, mobilize and get the Peace Plan passed and put my body on the NRAs doorstep in Fairfax, VA,” he requested.

If you want your photo published if you die from gun violence tweet about it so it’s on the record with #MyLastShot— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) August 26, 2019
Hogg is also a co-founder of March For Our Lives, a political, anti-gun group comprised of middle and high school students that has published a plan for gun control, that they call “the green new deal but for guns.”
The plan calls for a ban on so-called “assault weapons” and high capacity magazines.
Additionally, the plan calls for increased gun registration, as well as the inclusion of “in-person interviews” and “personal references” into the gun-buying process.
While many Twitter users used Hogg’s hashtag to express a desire for their corpse to be thrown in front of the NRA headquarters if they were to die from gun violence, others made light of the moment.

Hogg was rocketed to activist-fame after he was present during a school shooting in Parkland, Florida in 2018.
Following the shooting, Hogg tweeted that he was moved to return to the school where he made his first media appearance, speaking to news organizations about his anti-gun agenda.
Since then, Hogg has become a teenage media sensation, making frequent appearances with outlets like CNN and MSNBC.
