When you start a movement to take away rights, it will come back to bite you.
Lauren Hogg, younger sister of David Hogg, launched a massive anti-gun movement with the help of Democrat operatives and well-organized “resistance” groups.
Last month’s March for Your Lives rally drew a few hundred thousand screaming activists demanding that the Second Amendment either be repealed or amended in the wake of the Parkland School massacre where the Hogg siblings attend school.
And it looks like Stoneman Douglas High School was listening, and decided to implement some changes of its own. The young Hogg wasn’t too pleased about it:
Today when I walk into school I will be greeted with armed police, wand detectors and clear backpacks.
Is this what my high school experience is going to be like? 3 more years of this…
Someday when my kids ask me about my high school experience what am I going to tell them?

Stoneman Douglas Principal Ty Thompson said the heightened security measures would be “very similar to when you enter a sporting event, concert, or even Disney World,” in a memo sent to parents, the New York Post reported.
All in-session classrooms will be locked, and students entering the school will pass through metal detectors. Metal detecting wands will be used to new security guards who will be searching sports bags and bags carrying musical instruments, according to the Post.
Perhaps if Lauren, her brother and peers didn’t start screeching from every media platform about how unsafe they feel in “NRA’s America” her school would’ve taken a subtler approach. But then again, maybe not, since her school, the FBI and the Broward Cowards didn’t nothing to stop a known madman from shooting up the place to begin with.
Either way, Hogg was completely unaware of how she helped create her new circumstances and continued to vent on Twitter. And this is rich:
My new backpack is almost as transparent as the NRA’s agenda.
I feel sooo safe now.

The young Hogg has joined the chorus of Stoneman Douglas students upset of over a new policy that dictates they must carry transparent backpacks. Because losing your right to privacy completely sucks, doesn’t it kiddos?
Admittedly, the backpack seems like a desperate, reactionary ploy to visually appear as if drastic measures are being taken. But rational people ask why officials wouldn’t have stopped someone who had publicly expressed his intent to commit mass murder rather than punish, and take away the rights from innocent students?
Hogg didn’t see the hypocrisy of her anti-gun movement, nor the valuable lesson in it, but that didn’t stop Twitter from chiming in:
It’s almost like someon is being punished for other mistakes. Sucks doesn’t it ??

Both a feel good, do nothing proposals anyway. Guns are inanimate objects. Stop blaming them and figure it out. pic.twitter.com/trdbp7WtDy

I mean, I can see if Cruz was an avid NRA member – but he’s not.
In fact, the number of NRA members that have committed mass shootings remains at….. ZERO….
Now – go back to focusing your BS at the ACTUAL cause of 17 deaths… K??

Don’t worry those backpacks will keep you safe! Safer than the Broward County sheriff’s department will!

You poor child. Maybe one day you will grow up and realize that you are viewing this all wrong. But you wanted to be safer in school, so you got your wish.

Sucks to lose your rights because authorities panicked over the reactions of one bad actor and sought cosmetic solutions huh? https://t.co/oMUJF1lQTC

I’m sorry you dislike having your liberty taken away in the name of making others feel safe.
If you were capable of learning, there might be a lesson there.
But alas, no. https://t.co/7FBZFFR91Z

Big government is a wonderful contract, isn’t it? You’re conned into signing, you’re locked in for life, and you’re never satisfied even though you got exactly what you asked for.
Enjoy goose-stepping your way to school. https://t.co/xMosIfvRHt

Hogg’s conservative classmate Kyle Kushuv weighed in too, letting her know he thought she had at least one thing right:
