In 2019, America has had more mass shootings than days in the year. So what possible reasons could gun advocates have to keep the conversation away from banning assault weapons? Feral hogs. You may have seen Twitter going wild about 30-50 feral hogs yesterday. Here’s why.
It all began when musician Jason Isbell took to Twitter to speak out against access to assault weapons. In response, @WillieMcNabb, who describes himself as “Husband / Father / Christian / Libertarian / @WCU Alum / & Fan of Pearl Jam & Red Sox”, offered a counter-argument that was unique to say the least.
You might think this is a dumb argument. You would not be alone. But @WillieMcNabb stood by his guns.

Why would I spend over 20k on a fence (without taking into consideration of how to cross a swamp) when I can legally own a weapon at fraction of cost to protect my family?
They make fencing called hog wire fence. You should try it. Keeps the kids in and hogs out. I put up 8 acres of it, by myself, at 52. pic.twitter.com/dwnImbV5lX— NotOnMyWatch (@9_BulletPoints) August 5, 2019
Twitter had thoughts on his predicament of 30-50 feral hogs far beyond fencing.

You don't need a gun; you need 30-50 friends to gently massage the hogs https://t.co/St5HIvdPjU— Angela Lashbrook (@lemonsand) August 5, 2019
All the memes came to play.

stages of Feral Hog Twitter— Jess Dweck (@TheDweck) August 6, 2019
1. confusion seeing everyone tweet “30 to 50 feral hogs”
2. find the tweet & assume it’s satire
3. read the tweet again & realize it’s for real
4. like and RT only feral hog tweets for 12 hrs straight
5. become 30 to 50 feral hogs
