‘This Time Is Different’: Fox News Publishes Parkland Shooting Survivor David Hogg’s Op Ed

“The end result must be different. If such is the case, it will be due to the efforts of responsible citizens “a survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting writes

After the murder of 19 children and two teachers in a mass shooting last month in Uvalde, Texas, even Parkland high school shooting victim David Hogg is optimistic that gun enthusiasts may be more prepared to compromise this time around.

That’s because, to his surprise, Fox News published his op-ed on Friday urging increased activism to push for increased gun safety legislation.

“A number of us urgently sought answers when 17 of my classmates and teachers were murdered in my Parkland, Florida, a school in 2018,” Hogg said in the op-ed.

He wondered aloud, “How could adults have allowed this to happen?” “We marched for our lives with a million other Americans of all kinds in a state of shock.” In the years since there have been numerous reasons to give up. You’re familiar with the city names and the events they represent. The outcome must be different this time, and if it is, it will be due to responsible citizens.”


Attitudes are “shifting for the first time,” according to Hogg. “Gun owners, including former leaders from the firearms business, are calling for action because tragedies like Uvalde do not reflect their ideals.” I’m sure there are millions of you who want to do what’s right.”

“I don’t know the exact solution,” Hogg said, “but I do know that you should be at the table.” “Your opinion is important. Your rights are important. Your politeness is important. We’ve had our differences in the past, but we’re not enemies now. Our adversary is gun violence, not a political party or an organization.”
