Facepalm: David Hogg Claims AR-15s Can’t Be Used For Self-Defense Because They Shoot Further Than Handguns
It’s really no wonder little Communist David Hogg was rejected from several colleges. It’s actually a wonder he graduated high school with some of the utter rubbish that comes out of his mouth, and I’m not even referencing the vulgarities that ejaculate from his lips. Earlier this week, Hogg said in response to comments by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s comments about Ar-15s and other semi-automatic rifles that they really can’t be engaging in “defending yourself” with a weapon from that has an “effective range” of “1600 feet.”
Kavanaugh’s stated that “handguns and semi-automatic rifles are weapons used for hunting and for self-defense.”
That’s all fine and good, but the Second Amendment was not written to protect hunting. That was a given in the time it was written. Hunting and sports shooting really have nothing to do with the Second Amendment. It was written to tell the government that was being established that the people had a God-given “right to keep and bear arms” and that right was not to be “infringed,” no matter the argument being made.
Hogg then took to Twitter to demonstrate his stupidity. First, he did so by removing self-defense from the context. Second, he attacked the rights of the people.
The effective range of an AR-15 is 1600 feet for comparison your typical handgun is 75 feet if you’re shooting somebody from 1600 feet away you’re not defending yourself…

It’s not hunting Davey.
I wonder if Hogg has actually spoken to any military veterans who have probably defended themselves and their brothers in arms from such distances with rifles with even greater range. I’m guessing not or he would never say it was “hunting” and recognize it was self-defense or assuming the rights of other individuals to protect their lives, much like the laws are regarding such actions in my home state of South Carolina.
I also wonder if Hogg is for the police having AR-15s.
While most self-defense encounters occur in close quarters and handguns are often used, that does not mean that semi-automatic rifles like the AR-15 are not used in self-defense.
Awr Hawkins reminds us over at Breitbart:
- On January 11, 2013, Military.com reported that a 15-year-old Harris County boy used his father’s AR-15 to defend his sister from home invaders. The invaders targeted the home in the middle of the day, while the parents were at work. The boy shot one of the invaders multiple times, causing both suspects to flee.
- On March 28, 2017, Breitbart News reported that an Oklahoma homeowner’s son used an AR-15 for self-defense, killing three home intruders.
- On November 5, 2017, Stephen Willeford grabbed his AR-15 and ran toward the Sutherland Springs, Texas, church shooter. Upon arriving he shot the shooter, forcing him to flee the scene.
- On February 27, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Dave Thomas witnessed his neighbor under knife attack, retrieved his AR-15, and ended the assault. Thomas said, “The AR-15 is my weapon of choice for home protection. It’s light, it’s maneuverable. If you train and know how to use it properly, it’s not dangerous. And this is just a perfect example of good guy with an AR-15 stopped a bad guy with a knife. And there were no lives taken, so all in all it was a good day.”
The point is that Hogg is not on the side of law-abiding citizens, America’s foundations or the US Constitution. He is promoting gun confiscation with gun bans. In other words, as a young man who is of age, he has chosen his side and as a result has become a domestic enemy. I’m saying this as clear as I can so that if Hogg reads this by chance, he knows whose side he is on. It’s not the side of freedom.
