David Hogg promises to 'go even harder' on Laura Ingraham boycott: 'We have them scared' (video)

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg isn’t letting up on Laura Ingraham or any of his other right-wing critics, now that his early success in muscling Ingraham’s advertisers is having an impact.

“The fact that they’re going after us personally shows that what we’re doing is working. We have them scared and now we have to go even harder,” Hogg told Alisyn Camerota on set at CNN’s “New Day.” “This is when it really starts to matter is when these people try going against us.”

“I want people to understand, we’re not trying to take your guns, we’re not against the second amendment, we don’t want to repeal the second amendment,” Hogg added.  “We simply want gun legislation in this country that allows law-abiding citizens to still own guns but prevents people with a history of mental illness or a history of a criminal background from owning a firearm. It’s as simple as that.”

Hogg also appeared to rule out any possibility that he would appear on Ingraham’s Fox News show — which he is currently leading an advertiser boycott against.

“I would need her to be more objective in the way that she talks about us,” Hogg told “New Day.” “She speaks only to her audience .. what she does all the time is ‘oh this leftist group is trying to take all your [guns]”

Hogg’s war with Ingraham began after she mocked his failure to be accepted to a number of universities. In a tweet, she accused the teenager of whining and appeared to revel in his collegiate misfortune. She later apologized after being dumped by numerous advertisers.

On set at “New Day” Camerota took a different approach, laying on praise and marveling at colleges with the temerity to reject the student activist.

“I am stunned that four colleges rejected you. What kind of dumbass colleges don’t want you,” she said, “You’ve taken the country by storm. How do you explain this?
