Hoax SWAT call to the home of Stoneman Douglas survivor & gun law activist David Hogg. @jweinsier reports: BSO called saying someone had taken people hostage. This was a swatting call & IS NOT TRUE. There is a major law enforcement presence at their Parkland home. @WPLGLocal10 pic.twitter.com/0dXcQc59fJ

On June 4, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Hogg will be joining fellow Parkland student gun control activists for a 75-stop summer tour. Their goal is to register pro-gun control voters and to pressure law makers into passing more gun control.
He and his fellow activists are planning a National Die In for June 12, where they will lie, as if dead, by the offices of lawmakers who stand with the NRA.
