Low turnout at Richmond gun rally

Unnamed Va official declares that he expected a way bigger turnout Monday. Since when? When was the last time any rally hit 22000? GIve me a break and yes I know who it was but I did not want to embarassed him. And yes I know how to spell embarrassed!!

Large turnout or small turnout - always depends on one's definition.

I think that this unnamed official must be right.

And all of the pictures are fake.

Don't think of it as a small turnout.

Think of it as an intimate gathering of the VCDL with 22000 of their friends.

Around my AO, there are lots of towns with less than 3000 people in them.

They are probably comparing it to a typical "million mom" march, which in truth rarely involves more than a few thousand people. But don't let the public know that.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

I was at Glenn Beckís DC rally. That was huge.

The VA rally was a blockbuster by 2A standards.

I see it as a starting point. We need to keep stirring the pot.

Even if it was just 22,000, the MDA rally 2 weeks prior was 32.

What is your reason for not naming this person? Iím sure Jolly Roger and Iím not the only person reading this that doesnít know who you are talking about, are you in fear for your life?

Would you please explain? The only MDA I know is the Muscular Dystrophy Association. And, does 32 mean 32 people or 32,000?
Thanks

I have a tendency to agree. We have always been the peaceful ones and those activist pukes know it. Iím not advocating violence and we will still pick up our trash, but people need to know that gun owners arenít just holed up in little rural towns in Kansas. On the other hand, it would pleasure me to no end to be in attendance at a rally and have the Antifa pansies show up. That would justify a good old fashioned beat down! But alas, they would be cowering in their parents basement, wearing their sisters clothes, until the big bad men have left.

One of the problems is that the pro 2nd side
tends to be gainfully employed persons.

Days off are prized for any number of reasons, like family time.

They frickin flooded that place with peaceful armed marchers.
It’s comforting to know that many will show up for a rally.
I only wonder if there really was a need for armed men how many would show up?
And by that I mean everyone showed up because they knew it was a peaceful rally. If it was the front line of conflict would all of those people have still showed and been ready to possibly make the sacrifice?
Not to stir up an old discussion but I was quite pleased to see how many armed folks showed up to defend a rancher and his cattle. In that case the govt backed down and away before the S really hit the F.

Coonman's entire emergency order was 2 fold.
1. Attempting to goad someone on our side to "do" something in order to point the finger at proof that the 4th safest state in the nation needs more gun control.

2. Shut down and fence off the area so that the crowd looks much smaller, harder to get a good photo of how many people were there.

The unnamed official is a tard. This rally was huge.

Small turnout

Well , to be honest, at this point I cannot remember who it was that said the turnout would be bigger but what I meant to say was when was the last time the turn out at Richmond was 22000. Still a turn out of 22000 for the 2nd amendment issue was hugh.

Probably would have been much higher too if gun supporters wouldn't of had to work and didn't have douchebag gun hating bosses that said work or punch out for the last time.

1/20/20 was MLK Day, and a lot of people were off work (I was, as schools were closed). It was AWESOME to be a part of the 22,000 people downtown at the State Capitol!

The turnout that is important will be in November. To stop the Left will take a 100% effort from all of us. We must give our time and our cash and our hearts to making it a Republican House, Senate, and of course, 4 more years of President Trump. That is what will give us two or more Justices on the Supreme Court, and that is the road to saving our country and our Constitution.

Fortunately some of the real geniuses on the Demo bandwagon are helping us out more than they suspect. This whole impeachment dog and pony show is blowing up in their faces. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.
