First: if you remember, Parkland survivor David Hogg took a year off to try to energize and register young people to vote, but then he was accepted to Harvard — they must have been impressed with his organization of the March for Our Lives and his thoughtful and considered tweets about gun control, like this one:
Imagine saying the only way to stop shark attacks is with more sharks.

He’s still the NRA’s biggest nightmare (not), and on Tuesday he shared a bizarre analogy:
The NRA is the big tobacco of violence in America.
— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) April 2, 2019
Are we even sure he knows for certain that the NRA does not sell guns? It’s a civil rights group focused on the Second Amendment. The thing about big tobacco is, they actually sold tobacco.
Besides, we’d love for Hogg to share his breakdown of all violent acts in America last year and tell us how many were traced to NRA members.
Clever David, but pathetically wrong

More accurate: Gun control advocates are the anti-vaxxers of self-defense. They rely on anecdotal evidence and fallacious logic to push their lies…

The NRA is the American people. The "big tobacco" of violence in American are leftists who support the Democrat Party. Making all the excuses in the world for their failure. People like you who are too cowardly to address people who actually commit crime.

What product does the NRA produce?
— The Right Sided One (@TheRightSided1) April 3, 2019
They do not sell or produce guns, ass.
— Keith Johnson (@CourageSower) April 2, 2019
No, because “big tobacco” sells tobacco. NRA doesn’t sell guns. Americans would still buy guns without the NRA. I, as well as many other people, have owned guns for years and have just now become an NRA member.

Which one of our rights was big tobacco protecting ? I forget.

The NRA really lives in your head, doesn’t it.

Name one crime the @NRA committed, I’ll wait.

Still blaming the NRA for a school shooting they had nothing to do with the actions of the shooter were his alone but if you want to be mad at somebody be mad at the person that kept his criminal records off the computers and allowed him to buy that rifle

Luckily, there are stores here in Texas where you can buy your AR-15, 100 round-double drum mags, ammo and a can of Copenhagen all in one convenient spot.

Sounds like my kind of place, where is the best area to look for real estate? May just make the jump!

You have to show your license each time you buy a pack. It doesn’t matter if there’s snow on the roof and you’re as old as dirt. A 7/11 clerk has more power over you than the NRA regarding guns.

Dude, you’re irrelevant
You had you’re 15 mins and milked an average SAT score into a pity admission into Harvard

Hey, speaking of Harvard, guess who else was recently accepted? Another Parkland survivor who fights for school safety while protecting Second Amendment rights:
After a year of fighting for school safety legislation and accountability in Parkland.

If would be fun if the two had a debate class together.
