Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg gave an expletive-filled interview lashing out at the National Rifle Association, Florida politicians and ‘old a** parents’.
The 17-year-old Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student, who has become a gun reform activist following the February 14 massacre at his high school, said he is the NRAs ‘worst nightmare’.
‘It just makes me think what sick f***ers out there want to continue to sell more guns, murder more children, and honestly get reelected,’ Hogg said in an interview with The Outline.

Hogg, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, became a gun control advocate following the February 14 massacre
The high school senior said he thinks the NRA and pro-gun politicians are more interested in money than protecting the lives of children.
‘What type of person are you where you want to see more f***ing money than children’s lives? What type of s***** person does that? They could have blood from children splattered all over their face and they wouldn’t take action, because they all still see these dollar signs,’ he fumed.
Ever since the February 14 shooting that left 17 students and staff members dead, Hogg and several of his classmates have become advocates for stricter gun control laws.
The teen said he has been in the forefront of it because adults don’t know how to ‘use a f***ing democracy’, so it’s left up to him and his peers.
‘When your old-a** parent is like, ‘I don’t know how to send an iMessage’, and you’re just like, ‘Give me the f***ing phone and let me handle it.’ And you get it done in one second. Sadly, that’s what we have to do with our government,’ he said.
‘Our parents don’t know how to use a f***ing democracy, so we have to.’
Hogg said the past month of advocating has been exhausting, but he knows it’s important.
‘I get to a certain point where I just get so tired that I keep going,’ he told The Outline. ‘It creates a positive feedback loop in some ways – the more stress and work I put on me, the more stress and work I can deal with.’
During his interview with The Outline, Hogg called Florida governor Rick Scott ‘Voldemort’ and said he does not care about children’s lives

Hogg went on to say that he doesn’t want to see all guns banned, but wants to make sure they are in the hands of the right people.
‘Honestly, it’s alright that people are buying more guns. I just care that they are being safe individuals. And they can practice their Second Amendment rights all they want. I don’t give a f*** about that. I just want to make sure that a crazy a** individual doesn’t get an AR-15 or any weapon at all,’ he explained.
During the nine-minute interview, Hogg also lashed out at Florida Governor Rick Scott, who he said does not care about the lives of children.
‘You’re kind of like Voldemort at this point. You should just retire, because you aren’t going to get elected to Senate,’ the teen stated.
