Over Memorial Day weekend, a veteran of the Benghazi attack, who helped save multiple lives by his team’s actions, responded to a tweet sent out by David Hogg, a leftist who has made a name for himself following the February 14, 2018 Parkland shooting.

Hogg tweeted, “Remember a time when there wasn’t a school shooting every week? I don’t because I wasn’t alive.”

Kris Paronto, a former Army Ranger, responded by saying, “I remember, it was before your generation started shooting up the schools David, even though we still had guns. Thank you for confirming…again…that it’s not the gun, it’s the person, and in particular you & your peers millennial culture.”

Paronto was part of the CIA annex security team that responded to the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, on September 1, 2012. He and his team helped save the lives of almost two dozen during the siege, which lasted for over 13 hours.

According to his website, Paronto received his training as an Army Ranger and in Special Forces. He’s authored a book called “The Ranger Way,” and offers public speaking events as well as elite training.

On his website masthead, He has the verse John 15:13, which says, “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”

According to The Daily Wire, Paronto explained how the average American could keep himself safe, saying, “Training is absolutely critical for self-defense.

“Under stress, you are always going to resort to your highest level of training. Just going out and purchasing a firearm will be of little help if you don’t have the repetition and stress induced by good training.”

According to The Daily Wire, Hogg has recently targeted President Trump by threatening to hold what the anti-gun activist calls a "die-in" at a Trump hotel. On Friday in Florida, Hogg and other young anti-gun activists laid down in a store and called shouted anti-gun rhetoric to boycott the store because of the businesses' political contributions.
