David Hogg Attends White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Campaigns Against NRA


Student gun control activist David Hogg attended Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner and campaigned against the NRA as he mingled with members of Congress.

The Daily Mail reports that Hogg came to the dinner as a guest of the The Daily Beast. He attended with Zion Kelly, an 18-year-old whose twin brother was shot dead last year.

Hogg used part of his time at the dinner pushing the newly created “No Rifle Association initiative” (#NoRA), of which he is a part. He was able to get six members of Congress to sign a #NoRA pledge that they will take no funding from the NRA:

On April 20, Breitbart News reported the launch of #NoRA, noting that it included student activists like Hogg and Cameron Kasky, together with celebrities like Alec Baldwin, Ashley Judd, Jimmy Kimmel, W. Kamau Bell, Don Cheadle, Minnie Driver, Jon Favreau, Nathan Fillion, Jordan Horowitz, Julianne Moore, Michael Moore, Patton Oswalt, Annabella Sciorra, Jill Soloway, and Amber Tamblyn.

The group will be holding a protest May 5 of the NRA’s annual meetings in Dallas, Texas.
