VIDEO: David Hogg Claims Clear Backpacks Infringe On His Rights

In an interview, Stoneman Douglas student David Hogg made some questionable claims.

Stoneman Douglas student turned anti-gun activist, David Hogg, claimed in an Axios interview that students' First Amendment rights were being infringed upon by the use of clear backpacks.

His statement comes after it was announced that Stoneman Douglas students will be required to carry clear plastic backpacks when they return to classes after Spring Break, instead of their usual book bags, CNN reported.

Additionally, eight Florida State troopers joined the security staff on Thursday morning at the Parkland high school where a former student shot 17 students and faculty on Feb. 14, the Orlando Weekly reported.

In the interview, Hogg voiced his opposition to the clear backpacks.

"I think after we come back from spring break, they're requiring all of us to have clear backpacks," Hogg said. "I think one of the most important, one of the other important things to realize is, many students want their privacy."

"There are many, for example, females at our school." Hogg continued. "When they go through their menstrual cycle, they don't want people to see their tampons and stuff. And it's just unnecessary and it's embarrassing for a lot of the students and it makes them feel isolated and separated from the rest of American school culture when they're having essentially their First Amendment rights infringed upon because they can't freely wear whatever backpack they want..."

It's not clear how clear backpacks allegedly violate students' rights to freedom of speech.

Hogg offered an alternative solution to keep students safe.

"What we should have is just more policies that make sure that these students are feeling safe and secure in their schools," Hogg concluded.

Typical whinie liberal puke.
Safety protocol is instituted and then they cmplain. Action was take. And now they dont like it.
What would you like more gun zone signage and i hate President Trump and hope the NRA dies?
Remember puke. Obama’s DOJ and Broward County Sheriffs office created the foundation for kids and teachers to die in that FL. H.S. The program to shit can criminal activity in schools to get more funds is what caused that sociopath to be able to slaughter. Sheriffs office tesponded to numerous domestics on the shooter and never collared him or removed his guns required by law in a domestic involving menacing with a weapon or bringing live ammo to school. The school never called pd and allowed this nut to be allowed to be free to kill.

Somebody tell me why this kid has become the spokesman of the Stoneman Douglas student body. He shows up everywhere as the voice of authority. Who the hell is he?

Hogg doesn't want his rights infringed upon, but he wants to infringe upon yours.
