Gun control activist David Hogg’s boycott and protests against Publix grocers hurts funding for same-sex marriage and abortion.
He targeted Publix because they gave nearly $700,000 to pro-gun gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam (R).
Hogg’s protest included a “die in” in the aisles of a Publix store and chalk outlines of 17 persons on a Publix parking lot:
Early this morning @davidhogg111 teamed up with @ChangeTheRef to create an art instillation outside of @publix in protest of the corporation and their support of Adam Putnam. 17 chalk outlines in multiple parking spots were drawn and wrapped in caution tape. #msd #neveragain pic.twitter.com/043cC2o6kA

IJR’s Caleb Hull reported:
