David Hogg gets embarrassingly fact-checked after making stuff up again

Former Marjory Stoneman Douglas student David Hogg seems to have continued trouble separating facts from fiction.

The anti-gun activist was fact-checked again after making an off-the-wall claim that the National Rifle Association is pushing for federal funding to arm teachers in schools “to increase gun sales in a record low year.”

Hogg was responding to a New York Times report that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is considering if a program in federal education law would allow states to use federal funding for firearms and firearm training of teachers. And while the education program, the Student Support and Academic Enrichment grants, does not prohibit weapons purchases, moving ahead with such a plan could prove controversial for the Trump administration.

Of course, the Times report made no mention of an NRA connection as Hogg suggested in his tweet.

Actual facts have eluded Hogg before, but that has never stopped him from spouting off his leftist narrative – even if he ends up getting called out.

Washington Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski, a firearms instructor and gun policy reporter,  introduced Hogg to some hard facts.

Gutowski was sure to clarify his own words citing the importance of being as “precise and transparent as possible.”

Hogg seemed to prove once again that America’s school system must be failing its students as Twitter users weighed in.
