With Parkland high school graduate David Hogg expected to announce a 60-day, 20-state, 75-stop summer bus tour Monday to push for more stringent gun control laws and to register young people to vote, the 18-year-old found himself facing another daunting challenge that could break the internet if he accepts.
Kaitlin Bennett, the Kent State grad who took the internet by storm recently when she posed on campus with an AR-10 strapped across her back, took to social media to challenge Hogg to an arm wrestling contest.

Bennett, an advocate for Campus Carry, is so confident that she’s willing to put the Second Amendment up against surrendering her firearms.
“I have a challenge for you @davidhogg111. Let’s arm wrestle. If I win, we get to keep the 2nd amendment. If you win, we turn in our guns. Deal?” she tweeted.

Bennett reassured followers in a second tweet that mocked Hogg by included a photo of the student and his “guns”… or lack thereof.
“It’s alright guys, the 2nd amendment is safe,” the caption read.

This could be a pay-per-view event with proceeds going to a good charity. Just think, millions of dollars could be raised for a good cause.
Not that money is an issue for Hogg, given the expense of his extended bus tour that someone is writing the check for.
While we must be reminded that Hogg is a survivor of the Stoneman Douglas shooting that killed 17 people, he has brought much of the scorn he now sees online on himself, beginning when he called 5 million law-abiding NRA members “child murderers.”
His recent targeting of a popular Florida supermarket for donating to a hometown candidate who supported the NRA didn’t help his popularity much.
Here’s a sampling of some of the epic responses to Bennett’s tweet:

David will accept your challenge, but with conditions:
#1. You have to use your left hand, (or your right if you’re left-handed.)
#2. The contest has to be held in a “Safe Space.”
#3. He still gets a trophy if he loses!
