Two survivors from the shooting at a high school in Florida joined Bill Maher on Friday to discuss gun control on his HBO show, “Real Time.”
Both David Hogg and Cameron Kasky have become major proponents of gun control in the weeks since the attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 people were killed by a 19-year-old gunman.
At one point during their discussion, Kasky revealed his understanding — or lack thereof — of the Second Amendment, and even liberal Maher had to call him on it.
Kasky said the Second Amendment “is a very good piece of rhetoric defense that I've seen a lot because they put it as if you're attacking a right that you're born with.”
Maher replied with the obvious: “It is, if you're an American.”
Several of those who survived the Valentine's Day shooting are reportedly eyeing book deals, which they intend to use to advance their desire for greater gun control in the United States.
Hogg has garnered quite a bit of attention in the days since the shooting for his staunch views on gun control and his unwavering opposition to Republicans.
Additionally, another survivor is using her story to campaign for the Democratic National Committee.
