Parkland mass shooting survivor David Hogg, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, called out NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch on Sunday for representing the gun lobby instead of the organization’s 5 million members.
During an interview on ABC, Loesch became enraged over the idea of banning AR-15s or even increasing the minimum purchase age to 21 years old.
Hogg predicted that there would be a change in the way the American public responds to mass shootings because students who had grown up as America was experiencing the epidemic are now old enough to vote.
“Kids are not going to accept this,” Hogg explained. “We love to complain about things… We’re going to have to look very hard at the foundation of this country.”
Hogg also had a message to members of the NRA.
“Listen to Dana [Loesch],” Hogg said, looking directly at the camera. “Is she really speaking to you guys, is she trying to fight for you guys? Or is she actually trying to fight for the gun lobby?”
“Everything she’s saying seems like spectacle,” he added. “Is it just her tone? Or is it what she’s actually saying?”

‘Let’s find out the truth’: Fox News host battles Jim Jordan over why there should be witnesses in a trial
Fox News host Martha MacCallum challenged Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a member of the president's impeachment defense team, about why Republicans will not allow witnesses in Donald Trump's Senate trial.
"With regard to [former National Security Adviser] John Bolton," MacCallum said at the conclusion of a Fox News interview on Wednesday, "one of the things that you hammered home during the House side of this process was that all of this [evidence against Trump] is hearsay."
"But now you have John Bolton saying that he was in the room, that he knows the president's thinking on this," the Fox News host continued. "The president has flatly denied that, says it isn't true. But how do you get past that?"
REVEALED: Bolton urged House Dems to investigate Ukraine ambassador’s firing two days before impeachment launched
Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) blew up President Donald Trump's claims that John Bolton kept his concerns about Ukraine to himself.
The New York Democrat, who chairs the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, revealed Wednesday that Bolton urged him "unprompted" in September to look into the ousting of former Ukraine ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.
Why didn’t John Bolton complain about this “nonsense” a long time ago, when he was very publicly terminated. He said, not that it matters, NOTHING!

‘The president is afraid’: Historian tells CNN that Trump’s attempt to block Bolton’s book is an epic blunder
Historian Timothy Naftali, a clinical associate professor of public service at New York University, told a CNN panel on Wednesday that President Donald Trump's attempt to block former national security adviser John Bolton from publishing his book would be a massive political blunder.
While discussing the news that the Trump White House sent a formal threat to Bolton warning him against publishing his book, Naftali predicted that the move would backfire and make it more likely that vulnerable Republican senators would call for Bolton to testify.
