So, Hogg was on campus, but was he near the shooting?  Or was he in a different building?

I would bet a different building. The building where the shooting occurred was the Freshman building, a separate building away from the the main campus buildings. Just a guess though based on the fact he is not a Freshman.

No one has answered (or asked the teenage activists) that question.

My understanding is that this school had multiple buildings generally separating the upper classmen from the lower classmen, and the murderer attacked the lower classmen building.

Given that over half of the victims were aged 14 or 15, that seems to be the case.

Now, some of the victims were 17 or 18, so at least some older students were in that building, so my conclusion is- I have no idea where these activists were.
I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you also were meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought

Hogg was under-campus. The Rothschilds have a subterranean facility at the school, where they teach children the intricacies of weather control, mind control, and possibly also gun control.

After reviewing all of this, it appears that the problem was that CBS included a very confusing quote without context. Hogg was on campus during the shooting and returned several hours later to interview people across the street.

Just can't trust the MSM.

Wow. 

I guess it could be really bad satire, but it is amazing how some people can make their own group look worse in more than one way when they are trying to put down another.

I believe I predicted this "take" in another thread. Nothing to it, really. They've been telling us for a while now that we only like guns because they soothe our insecurities about minorities and women challenging our once-privileged position. This is just the same identitarian smear, writ large.

Others have noted, this is projection. Most leftists (especially the white, male ones) have a very low view of the intellect of minorities and women, and therefore believe the right just props them up to parrot whatever the right wants them to say.

EVERY minority or woman on the right is a "token" to them. ESPECIALLY if they are "articulate and bright and clean and nice-looking."

The more I see of this stuff, the more I think many of these people have a lot of personal demons close to the surface and they assume everyone else is the same and barely keeps themselves in check also.

I started following Dana Loesch on twitter.  She replies "God Bless" or something simple to a lot of the nasty comments.  There are quite a few I have seen because she replied.  Most of them don't directly threaten her, but often they wish bad things on her or her family.  A lot of people seem to have no problem posting nasty comments on the internet.

It provides an illusion of anonymity. 
Which I guess is why people post gobs of personal info on facebook or Google whatever then get upset when their info is found all over the net.

I believe she and her family just recently moved, due to some serious threats she received.

Need a real life example of how devious and how despicable anti-gun types can be? Try this:

I attended a pro-2A rally in my state's capitol today -- held on the steps of the capitol building. Rally was organized and hosted by the state's largest grassroots, pro-2A group. I don't know how to estimate how many attended -- I'll guess between 1,000 and 2,000 people.

After the rally had ended and a few volunteers were staying around to help clean up the capitol grounds, a father with a young child in tow approached the president of the organization and asked if he could take a photo of his kid with the president. The kid was holding a sign that said something like, "We're pro-2A." The president agreed, they got the photo all lined up and posed, than the father said, "Now turn it around ..." The kid flipped the sign over, revealing that the back side said "GUNS KILL KIDS." Before anyone could react, the father snapped the photo, grabbed the kid, and boogied. So now he has a photo that he's going to claim "proves" that the president of the RKBA organization agrees that guns kill kids.

That's what they do. They lie, they cheat, they twist, and they deceive. They don't want an honest and open debate on the merits of gun control, because they know they'll lose. In their view, the end justifies the means, and if that means cheating and lying ... they'll cheat and lie.

Why now?  A lot of people are now standing on the graves of the children shot in Florida and screaming for change, whatever that means.  You've got a Republican party that seems afraid to use its majority control to do anything more than try to not lose the midterm elections, and doing a pretty piss-poor job of that.  We've got a president who is vilified by the press daily, to the point where life-long Republicans are saying that they don't support him or what he's standing for, like immigration enforcement, even though a decade or so ago, it was on everyone's platform, R or D .  We have an electorate made up of far too many people more concerned about who is going to be on Dancing With the Stars next time than anything of more national significance...unless the Kardashians say it's important.  And these people are hearing celebs say "the NRA is bad," so they are singing right along.  And, we have a crap ton of people willing, no begging, to give up liberty for a sense of safety.  It's the perfect storm, and the antis are going all in.

Just when I think we've hit peak irony....

Girl tweets pic of her Appendix carrying as Graduation photo.  Twitter sh!*storm ensues. (Along with much hilarity.)  As part of it, I noticed the twitter handles of some who are hoping that she (and others carrying) shoot themselves in the Va-jay-jay.
