The OTHER David Hogg, Who Stands Up for Gun Rights
Cortney O'Brien Posted: Apr 03, 2018 1:30 PM 

David Hogg has become a household name. A few weeks
ago he was just a teenager who attended Marjory Stoneman
DouglasHigh School. Now, he is a famous gun control
advocate and cable news networks' No. 1 interview. On
Twitter, his following has ballooned to over 700K.

As with any bit of fame, Hogg is also getting plenty of
criticism. Gun rights is a touchy topic for a lot of Americans,
and they've certainly let the young man know they are not
happy with his demonizing the National Rifle Association
and continued demandsfor gun control legislation.

In the midst of all this, there is another David Hogg on Twitter
whois unfortunately fielding the same harassment. That
young man, who is currently in college, shared that he had to
suspend his account for a time because it was too over-
whelming for him and his family.

Once he returned to social media, he noted that, unlike the
other Hogg, he is a conservative who proudly supports
Americans' second Amendment rights.

The college-age Hogg began a GoFundme page to help him
purchase a "very" used truck and a new lawnmower. He
started the fundraiser, he said, because others told him they
would start one without his permission.

"I didn't want someone to start one that had bad intentions or
would try to pretend they are me," he explained.

Having surpassed his goal, he asked for no more donations.

"And one last thing, you can totally support the 2nd
Amendment and be a Conservative and NEVER want another
person hurt by a gun again," he wrote. "That is just another
misconception out there!"

MSD's Hogg says he is not against the Second Amendment
either. Gun rights advocates are begging to differ,
considering the March for Our Lives rally, which he helped
organize, has calledfor a ban on the AR-15 and demonized
the NRA.
