David Hogg — a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School, turned activist after the shooting — has turned into a public figure after the tragedy that occurred on Valentine’s Day at his school. During his dozens of interviews he constantly bashed the NRA and demanded politicians start doing something about children being murdered in schools.
Hogg most recently bragged about hanging up on the White House when they called, stating it was “very offensive considering the fact that there were funerals the next day, there was mourning we still had to do.” He added, “We don’t need to listen to President [Donald] Trump. President Trump needs to listen to the screams of the children and the screams of this nation.”
His message was clear and divisive, but it seems now the young activist has changed his mind.
“Can we please not debate this as Democrats and Republicans but discuss this as Americans?” Hogg tweeted on Sunday. “In the comments if you see someone you dissagree with do not attack each other talk to one another, this applies to me too. WE MUST WORK TOGETHER TO SAVE OUR FUTURE.”

During an interview with CNN, Hogg called the National Rifle Association “child murderers.”
“If you can’t get elected without taking money from child murderers, then why are you running?” he asked.
This Wednesday, Hogg and many other activists are planning a “school walkout” to show their support for gun control.
