Anti-Second Amendment activist David Hogg has certainly been trying to take advantage of his platform as the “victim”. Last week, he said that anyone who supports the 2nd amendment is supporting school shootings, mortally offending nearly half of the American people in the process. On Friday, a U.S. Army soldier named Derek Weida posted a brutal response to Hogg on Facebook, who has quickly become the self-proclaimed second amendment expert for the Democratic party.
We’re not going to get into how questionable some of Hogg’s statements have been in regards to the school shooting. If you want to check out our piece on Hogg’s “witnessing” of the shooting, feel free to check out this article.

“I got shot on a house raid in Iraq,” the former soldier posted on Facebook. “My getting shot didn’t make me a professional on war, international relations, house raids (obviously), or guns,” he explained, seemingly criticizing Hogg for positioning himself as a gun control authority.
Weida was very clear in explaining that he is not in fact pro-gun himself. However, he feels that David Hogg is using the issue for personal fame and coming across as condescending and overall disrespectful in his delivery.
RANT: Accurate portrayal of me listening to David Hogg speak. Look, I’m sorry dude, sincerely. It is horrible… School…
“Here’s my two cents: It’s not a gun problem, not a people problem, it’s a culture thing,” the one-legged soldier wrote.
“Don’t ever be so quick to tell a whoooole lot of people how to live,” he warned Hogg. “F***ing NOBODY wants school shootings, mass shootings, shootings of any kind where somebody ends up injured or dead. Nobody.”
“It’s not even about the gun. It’s about the freedom and the right… And you can’t win an argument against that, nor should you,” he went on.
Weida, who served with the 82nd Airborne Division in Iraq, scolded Hogg for demonizing law-abiding gun owners and portraying NRA members as blood-soaked murderers.
“Bad things happen sometimes but on the grand scale of things… Like 99.999% of people are good. Yes, let’s find ways to deter those .001% of people as best we can but they’re gonna accomplish their task regardless,” he stated.
“I guess I just want to say don’t be so quick to talk. Don’t be so quick to think YOU are somehow the ONE person who has things figured out,” the Purple Heart recipient suggested to Hogg.
Then he wrote something that countless conservatives have wanted to say to David Hogg for weeks.
“You want to make a change? Cool!! But… Try to be less of a c*** about it.”
