BOOM: One-Legged Iraq Veteran Has Strong Message For David Hogg And It’s Going MEGA Viral

Share this post:

Derek Weida, a wounded warrior called out David Hogg for his gun control antics in a viral Facebook rant.

Weida lost one of his legs during a deployment to Iraq, he wasted no words in the hot Facebook post.

Derek Weida began by talking about David Hogg’s need to “watch what you say,” and then slamming him, noting the war Derek served in makes him in no way an expert.

Check it out below:

“I got shot on a house raid in Iraq. My getting shot didn’t make me a professional on war, international relations, house raids (obviously), or guns,” even though he was opposed to the war in Iraq, he didn’t come back to America and protest it either.

Waida, after stating he “signed up to be shot at,” threw some shade at Hogg and the student activists.

He said, “Not exactly sure you actually got shot AT but that’s not the point here…”

He then went on to give his opinion on the whole gun control debate.

“It’s not a gun problem, not a people problem, it’s a culture thing,” Waida continued. “America loves guns. Accept that just like I had to accept that America loves God. Don’t ever be so quick to tell a whoooole lot of people how to live.”

He also admitted nobody “wants shootings of any kind,” as he’s “with” the activist students in a way.

It’s not even about the gun. It’s about the freedom and the right… And you can’t win an argument against that, nor should you (In most cases).”

“Yes, let’s find ways to deter those .001% of people as best we can but they’re gonna accomplish their task regardless… Most likely. I guess I just want to say don’t be so quick to talk. Don’t be so quick to think YOU are somehow the ONE person who has things figured out. You want to make a change? Cool!! But… Try to be less of a cu** about it.”

Here is the post in it’s entirety:

I’m Derek, I got shot on a house raid in Iraq. My getting shot didn’t make me a professional on war, international relations, house raids, or guns. This horrible thing happened to me but I didn’t come home and protest the war… Even though I do kinda have these feelings that Iraq was errr… Questionable. But it ain’t my place. I did my part.

So, I empathize with you and your peers because whereas I signed up to be shot at, none of you did. (Not exactly sure you actually got shot AT but that’s not the point here).

Now… Guns. Here’s my two cents: It’s not a gun problem, not a people problem, it’s a culture thing. Thing… Not problem. America loves guns. Accept that just like I had to accept that America loves God. Don’t ever be so quick to tell a whoooole lot of people how to live.

F**king NOBODY wants school shootings, mass shootings, shootings of any kind where somebody ends up injured or dead. Nobody. But people want their guns. I’m actually kinda with the anti-gun folk. There’s no need BUT! I’ve learned that the way I live and the things I believe have nothing to do with how others want to live or what they want to believe. I’m a well regulated idealist.

The people you’re arguing against… It’s not even about the gun. It’s about the freedom and the right… And you can’t win an argument against that, nor should you (In most cases). The reality is humans gonna human and when humans human bad things happen sometimes but on the grand scale of things… Like 99.999% of people are good. Yes, let’s find ways to deter those .001% of people as best we can but they’re gonna accomplish their task regardless… Most likely.

I guess I just want to say don’t be so quick to talk. Don’t be so quick to think YOU are somehow the ONE person who has things figured out. You want to make a change? Cool!! But… Try to be less of a c**t about it.

Love and respect,

Derek
