Gun control activist and political opportunist David Hogg arrogantly demanded that President Joe Biden do something about guns on the fourth anniversary of the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL that took 17 lives.

The shooting on Feb. 14, 2018, also wounded 17 others. Hogg was ostensibly at school that fateful day and has turned the tragedy into his calling to have guns banned and strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights.

CNN’s “New Day” co-host Brianna Keilar played a soundbite of Biden in February 2020 where he vowed to go after gun manufacturers.

“I’m the only guy that’s beaten the gun manufacturers. I’m the only guy that’s beaten the NRA nationally and I did it twice,” declared Biden during a CNN town hall. “And gun manufacturers, I’m coming for you. Period.”

“He hasn’t come for them, David,” pointed out Keilar. “What’s your reaction?”

“I’m disappointed. And frankly, if I could say one thing to the president, it’s that we need you to go out and act right now before the next Parkland happens,” asserted Hogg. “Because there are things that you can do right now to help prevent it that you have not done. We need you to make good on your promises because kids are dying.”

Hogg did not say specifically what Biden can do to prevent school shootings or the fact that he would have to go through Congress constitutionally to do it.

Hogg’s gun control group, March For Our Lives, along with advocacy organizations Guns Down America and Change the Ref launched a tool called the “Shock Market” on Monday that will track gun violence in the US since Biden took office. The coalition will rally outside the White House, urging Biden to take a more aggressive approach towards guns.

“Biden has been a friend but not a leader,” Hogg, who is the founder of March For Our Lives, told CNN concerning Biden’s willingness to listen to the group’s concerns.

“He’s made small steps but it’s not enough. The president hasn’t been receptive to our demands. We expected this from (former President Donald) Trump, but we’re shocked that it’s coming from Biden,” he stated.

There will be a billboard truck at the rally displaying the number of alleged gun deaths that have occurred during the Biden administration so far, as well as speeches from Hogg and Manny Oliver, whose son Joaquin was one of the 17 people killed in the Parkland shooting. Oliver founded Change the Ref, a group that uses art to raise awareness about gun violence.

The coalition is asking Biden to “establish a national office of gun violence prevention,” further “invest in community violence intervention programs,” “hold the gun industry accountable” by nominating a new director to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and “use the presidential bully pulpit” to bring attention to the issue and coordinate a comprehensive response. The moves by these groups are seen as anti-Second Amendment by conservatives and gun owners.

“We’re not asking for magical things. This is the bare minimum for what a champion of gun violence prevention should be doing, and thus far the president hasn’t,” Igor Volsky, who is the founder of Guns Down America told CNN.

Nikolas Cruz, the Parkland shooter, pleaded guilty in October to 17 murder charges and 17 attempted murder charges. He has yet to be sentenced for his vile actions and could get the death penalty. During the verdict, he gave an apology that none of the families accepted.

The Biden Justice Department reached a settlement with the families of the victims, agreeing to pay $127.5 million to the plaintiffs in restitution. The families sued the federal government over the FBI’s failure to stop the gunman after receiving information he intended to attack.

Biden tweeted in remembrance of the Parkland school shooting and called on Congress to act on guns, “On February 14th, 2018, a gunman stole the lives of 14 students and 3 educators at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Today we mourn with the Parkland families whose lives were upended and stand with those working to end the epidemic of gun violence. Congress must act.”
