As Twitchy reported yesterday, Parkland survivor and anti-NRA activist David Hogg had a word to say about elected officials taking money from “special interests”:
Also, why is it culturally acceptable for any elected official to take money from special interests? In America we call it campaign donations the rest of the world calls it what it is, a bribe.

You better talk to your partners over at Everytown about this. https://t.co/RWB9bKsgzA

Plenty tried to set him straight on that one (guess what: Planned Parenthood is a special interest), but one reply, in particular, got him to laugh his ass off:
It's called making sure your industry is represented adequately in government. Please take a class in government before you continue tweeting.

Hang on to your chairs, ’cause we’re about to take a sharp left turn into some heavy brush.
“Adequately represented” lmao guns have more rights than women
— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) July 6, 2018
Guns have more rights than women? Really? So does a woman have a right to carry a gun, or does the gun have the right to be carried by a woman? We’re unclear on what he’s getting at here.
I’m a woman- what rights do I not have? Please, name one.

I'm a woman – what right do I not have?

Got any facts to back up that guns have more rights than women?
— Eric Osborne (@RealEricOsborne) July 7, 2018
yes, because as a woman, I am not allowed to vote, work, drive, have as many or as few kids as I want, to have legal representation, to go to school, etc. Meanwhile, you still have the right to be stupid. Glad to see you exercising that right.
— GAgymmom (@GAgymmom) July 7, 2018
Really? I’m a woman! What rights have I been deprived of @davidhogg111 ? I’m free to do what I want within the law. I also own a 9mm. Sit down little boy!
— Poncho/KSmith (@ponchi_k) July 7, 2018
Women have the right to own a gun. So sit down.

Guns don't have rights. People do. I'm a woman and my rights are just fine, thank you, including that 2nd Amendment one.
— Marilyn Durst (@MarilynDurst) July 7, 2018
Name a right that women don't have, in the USA, that men do.
Alternatively, explain how inanimate objects have any rights.
— MisnomeredHoundinator (@manofmanychins) July 7, 2018
What rights do those inanimate objects have?
— Freedom Recon (@FreedomRecon) July 7, 2018
You might also want to take a course in science to learn that a woman is animate and a gun/firearm is inanimate. Therefore, guns do not and cannot have rights.
— Barbara Warde (@Barb4Ward) July 7, 2018
How do inanimate objects have rights?

What right does a gun have?
What rights do women not have?

Guns don't have rights. Not a one. They have regulations. And they have more regulations than any other product aside from drugs.
By your fallacy, toilets have more "rights" than both guns and women.
— The Average Chris (@KilleenC_) July 7, 2018
I’m gonna regret asking this. How does a gun have more rights than a woman? What can a gun do that a woman can’t?
— bombcyclone92 (@bombcyclone92) July 6, 2018
Yeah I was so proud when guns got the right to vote.

So in order for you to hold a woman, she has to have a permit? Before she can go out in public she has to have a background check? When she’s at home, she has to be locked away in a safe? A woman isn’t allowed on government property? Strange.
— Josh Elliott (@j_rayge1) July 6, 2018
Yes David, women have to be registered and need permits and background checks, and aren't allowed in schools or on planes. Also it's not like guns can be used for self-defense or anything like that.
— Matt Baron (@mattbaron14) July 7, 2018
Didn’t know women couldn’t go in banks, courthouses, schools, post offices, private businesses with signs “women free zone”, or the city of Chicago and federal buildings.
Didn’t know you needed a permit to be a woman
I respect your persistence but Jesus kid you’re an idiot.
— 🇺🇸Run_556🇺🇸 (@Run_556) July 7, 2018
Incorrect. A woman can live in the same house as a felon legally.
— Sgt. K. Onyx (@SgtKOnyx) July 7, 2018
Ah yes, I forgot, I cant obtain an abortion or birth control without a back ground check; and my uterus is illegal on school and federal grounds.
Where do I obtain a permit to have children again?
Lol. Guns have so many more rights than I.
— Lauren Olson (@ladylackadaisy) July 6, 2018
Guns don't have rights. They're inanimate objects.
The meme is "a woman's uterus is more regulated than guns." This is also laughably incorrect, but if you're going to spout moronic talking points, at least get them right. https://t.co/EddwbhjHgf

Guns have more rights than women? Did you really say that? Come on dude, get a grip
