You know it’s bad when you literally have to give out t-shirts with your “cause” on it to homeless people in the area, just to make it look like you have a crowd of protestors. This is exactly what happened with anti-gun groups who met in Atlanta to protest the NRA’s annual meetings. Which was amazing, by the way.
President Trump showed up just after noon on Friday to address the NRA crowd, which was the first time a sitting president has done so since Ronald Reagan. He told the audience, “To the NRA, I can proudly say I will never, ever let you down.”
So, with thousands of gun owners and gun supporters in one building, along with the president, the protestors simply could not help themselves. However, they had some trouble getting the numbers to show.
Bearing Arms reports:
According to an officer providing security at the event, Mom’s Demand and Everytown brought just 75-100 people to Woodruff Park to “confront” the NRA, at a venue 7/10ths of a mile away from the Annual Meetings.
The twinned gun control groups appear to have attempted to pad their numbers by handing out tee shirts to the many homeless people inhabiting the park, though most of them seemed indifferent.
This is the fourth year in a row that Bloomberg’s gun control groups have failed to draw a sizable crowd. In contrast, the National Rifle Association’s Annual Meetings are expected to draw as many as 80,000 attendees to their pro-liberty event.
So are they liberal babies finally giving up? Are they starting to realize that they are not phasing us whatsoever? Maybe. Only time will tell.
