He is completely correct. The Second Amendment doesn’t GIVE anyone the right to overthrow the government. In fact, the Constitution doesn’t give anyone a single right. It never did. Not the right to free speech, not a right to a trial, nothing.

The Constitution was written as a grant of government power from the people to the government. Then, built into that document, is a list of powers that the government may never have. Those powers (among others) that will never be granted to the government include the power to regulate speech, search your papers and effects without a warrant, and yes, infringe upon your right to keep and bear arms.

So, David Hogg is correct, but not in the way that he thinks that he is. The Second Amendment doesn’t give people the right to overthrow the government. It merely ensures that they retain the ability.

He reportedly attends Harvard so what did you expect, critical thinking skills?

That young man should pray for wisdom, knowledge and discernment. Bless his heart. I especially appreciate the repetitive statements that “…this is a threat to our democracy.” I whole heartedly agree. I dont remember who said this, I’m paraphrasing, using the word democracy is now synonymous with socialism/communism. The communist-left, aka most democrats, a few republicans and others use this interchangeably, its part of the gaslighting.

Hogg’s thinking ability is demonstrative of the level of stupidity an average high school education imparts.
