Last week, Parkland student turned anti-gun activist David Hogg presented his 5-point plan to end school shootings.
Now, Parkland student Kyle Kashuv just proved Hogg’s plan wouldn’t have done anything to prevent the deadly shooting at a Texas high school.
On Friday, at least eight people were killed and many more were injured. Two suspects are in custody and police reportedly believe there could be others at large.
Hogg spent most of the day sending out tweets calling for gun control, blaming the NRA, and implying lawmakers don’t care about protecting kids in school.
In response, Kashuv responded to the tweet from Hogg last week, which detailed his 5-point plan.
Here’s Hogg’s tweet:
I want to have a discussion about this we may not agree on everything but I’m sure that there is some common ground

Here’s Kashuv’s response to Hogg, which shows that his 5-point plan wouldn’t have done anything to prevent the tragic shooting at the Santa Fe High School in Texas on Friday.
You've said that today confirms that gun control is needed. However, your plan doesn’t even intersect with these weapons.
Today's shooter used a shotgun and a revolver, under your plan, both would be completely untouched.
Calling for action based on today means a full gun ban https://t.co/1NQlHMB3RJ

According to The Daily Caller, Dimitrios Pagourtzis, a 17-year-old student who has allegedly been identified as the shooter, was illegally in possession of the weapons he used to carry out the attack.
Pagourtzis reportedly illegally possessed a .38 revolver and a shotgun, both of which belonged to his father.
Here’s what Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott said about the guns:
“Neither of these weapons were owned or legally possessed by the shooter. It is my information that both of these weapons were obtained by the shooter from his father. It is my information at this time that the father legally owned these weapons. I have no information at this time whether or not the father was aware that his son had taken these weapons from the father.”
Not a single item on Hogg’s 5-point plan would have prevented the tragic attack.
As many pointed out on social media, Hogg has been leading rallies, doing interviews, and railing against guns for months, yet he still has no basic understanding of how guns function or about the current laws on the books.
Hogg’s anti-gun tactics again prove his plan wouldn’t work, and Kashuv made sure to remind him about it.
