Tomi Lahren got destroyed this weekend after making a complete fool of herself on Twitter.
Self-proclaimed “constitutional conservative” Tomi Lahren has been extremely vocal regarding her pro-gun stance since the tragic mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where seventeen people were killed and an additional seventeen wounded on February 14, 2018, making it one of the world’s deadliest school massacres.
Less than 24 hours after the shooting Lahren sought to politicize the shooting tweeting: “Can the Left let the families grieve for even 24 hours before they push their anti-gun and anti-gunowner agenda? My goodness. This isn’t about a gun it’s about another lunatic. #FloridaShooting”
The Washington Examiner reported at the time that: “Multiple survivors who say they were inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when a former student opened fire, killing 17, slammed Fox News’ Tomi Lahren on Twitter” in response to her tweet.
Carly Novell, who was inside Marjory Stoneman High, became the second member of her family to survive a mass shooting responded to Lahren tweeting: “I was hiding in a closet for 2 hours. It was about guns. You weren’t there, you don’t know how it felt. Guns give these disgusting people the ability to kill other human beings. This IS about guns and this is about all the people who had their life abruptly ended because of guns.“

Kyra Parrow, another Stoneman High survivor tweeted: “A gun has killed 17 of my fellow classmates. A gun has traumatized my friends. My entire school, traumatized from this tragedy. This could have been prevented. Please stfu tomi.“

Then, as Real Clear Politics reported, a week later Lahren was at it again telling Fox News host Sean Hannity the problem wasn’t just guns, that there also “cultural problems at play” that needed to be addressed.
On February 27, 2018 she devoted one of her infamous “Final Thoughts” rants to lashing out at individuals on the left and mainstream media for blaming the NRA for the shooting, claiming once again that “this isn’t a gun control issue.” She concluded her rant, arguing in support of unrestricted individual gun ownership stating:
Sometimes the cops fail, the administration fails, the bureaucracy fails and evil slips through the cracks. That’s why we have the individual right to keep and bear arms.
The last thing we ought to do is give away those Second Amendment rights in response to this tragedy. We give those rights away … we will not get them back.
Fast-forwarding to this weekend NBC News reported that: “Hundreds of thousands of kids across the country participated in rallies Saturday as part of the March for Our Lives movement that was born out of the Valentine’s Day school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 students and staff members.”
As one might have expected, Lahren took to Twitter posting eleven tweets either speaking out against the rallies or speaking up for the NRA. One particular post drew the most attention wherein Lahren claimed that the “March FOR Our Lives” was not for anything.
“Simply being anti-NRA is not a solution. March FOR something, not just against everything,” she tweeted.
Twitter was swift to respond to her ludicrous tweet, with several Twitter users mocking her for not seeming to comprehend the name of the rallies:

Writer Ed Solomon, best known for “Men in Black” and the “Bill and Ted’s Adventure” movies, tweeted: “MarchFORourlives. For. Our. Lives. FOR. FOR FOR FOR FOR FOR. For. For. FORFORFORFORFORFORFORFORFORFOR. For. For Our Lives. It’s called the MARCHFOROURLIVES. Good talk.”
Yara Hussein, a student who attend the march posted a multi-part response to Lahren, tweeting:
“How long can we sit here not making it harder for people to obtain assault weapons that are not surely needed? The issue isn’t with the guns completely, but we can’t legislate people. We CAN control the guns. We’re fighting togethers against the epidemic. I think you should too. You’re not even 10 years my senior. I respect your willingness to voice an opinion that many will oppose but had you still been in high school this is something that could have happened to you. This is not a left right issue this is an issue of human morals in our country. As a student who went to the march, I feel obligated to inform you that spending 5 hours in a crowd of thousands of people was to honor the victims, hear heartbreaking testimonies, advocate for comprehensive gun control, and call out inaction by politicians. You weren’t there.”
