David Hogg, gun control advocates march on Smith & Wesson headquarters, demand $5 million donation

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Student gun control advocates and one of the survivors of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting are finishing a 50-mile, four-day march in Massachusetts to the headquarters of gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson.

The group is gathering outside company headquarters Sunday in Springfield.

The marchers have condemned Smith & Wesson for making the rifle used in the February mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The group wants the company to donate $5 million to gun violence research.

  1. Stop calling hogg a survivor. All accounts sound like he was not even on site that day. A SURVIVOR is a person that was wounded and didn't die. a SURVIVOR may also be someone that was shot at but not hit. Just the fact that you may have been enrolled at the school during the event......does not make you survivor in ANY way, shape or form.

  2. Call the fire department. They have water hoses that can wash that scum away.

  3. Cain killed Able with a rock. David killed Goliath using a sling to hurl a rock. It isn't the weapon of choice that matters, damn near anything hard and heavy will do it. Hands have also been known to work well in killing a person. It all boils down to consciously choosing to kill someone or something. I know that I am preaching to the choir. We already know this to be truth. It seems there are a lot of folks out there who haven't figured this thing out yet.
