Gun control activist David Hogg, who became a national face for the movement after surviving the Parkland school shooting, says Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) should apologize to families who lost loved ones in school shootings, citing past remarks Greene made that reduced school shootings to conspiracy.
David Hogg, who became one of the nation’s most recognizable advocates for gun control after surviving the Parkland, Florida mass shooting in 2018, has called on Republicans to denounce Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) after a video of Greene, a noted conspiracy theorist, heckling him went viral.
After Tuesday’s midterm elections were over, Parkland shooting survivor Jaclyn Corin pointed out on Twitter that a record number of NRA-backed candidates (27) were defeated.

It has been 263 days since Valentine’s Day.

Laura Ingraham’s ratings are surging, but advertising revenues for her show on Fox News are not.
Several months after a series of boycotts by activists scared off many top national advertisers, big companies are still steering clear of her show. As a result, her show can attract only ‘bottom feeder’ ads from second and third tier companies.
Swat teams showed up at the home of Parkland shooting survivor and gun control advocate David Hogg after someone called in a fake hostage situation at the family's residence.
People in Florida love the Publix grocery store chain, but many were willing to forego shopping at their favorite store after news broke last week that Publix was a big political donor to an NRA-backed Republican candidate for governor, Adam Putnam.

President Donald Trump couldn’t resist going to the national convention of the National Rifle Association (NRA) in Dallas on Friday to soak up adulation from the adoring crowd of 80,000 gun lovers.

A Florida state legislator named Randy Fine is not going to be so fine after the student activists from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School set their sights on him.

Bayer AG, the massive German conglomerate, confirmed Saturday that the company will no longer be spending ad dollars to support Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show.
Bayer is at least the 16th company to withdraw sponsorship from “The Ingraham Angle” after the abrasive host attacked Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg last week.
“Bayer US has stopped advertising on Laura Ingraham and we have no plans to resume any time in the future,” the company wrote in a tweet.
After Ingraham mocked Hogg for his college rejections on Twitter, the 17-year-old sent out his own tweet with a list of companies sponsoring Ingraham’s show. The public pressure and bad publicity made almost all of them withdraw as sponsors.
Embattled Fox News host Laura Ingraham announced on her show Friday night that she was taking a break from her show, the Ingraham Angle.
