arma virumque cano (et alia)
I'm sure if you total 'em all up you get thousands.
I find it more sensible to congregate in local areas, State capitals v. spending the time and money to meet in D.C. I would much rather support my STATE in it's stance against Federal overstepping of authority. Your attempts to downplay the pro-rights movement is another indication of desperation.
There is nothing so false and evil as a pretend minister who favors the death of children.
Nick, your comment might be on point if Rev. Jim had ever expressed such an opinion. Since he hasn't, you're just blowing smoke.
Um... the USA today article says "Thousands of gun rights supporters gathered at state capitols around the country Saturday to rally against new laws to regulate firearms proposed by President Obama in the wake of last month's school shooting in Connecticut."It doesn't say hundreds, it says THOUSANDS. Hundreds in one state perhaps, but I have yet to see hundreds swarming all the state capitals in the other direction. And having seen the anti-gun protesters in DC personally, we're definitely talking low thousands at best. I'd be amazed if there were even that many.
You being biased I know you wont let this get posted, but it shows that source could be wrong. http://www.indianagazette.com/b_news/article_c215bdd6-19ce-5ddc-b93e-1e3c5d115c49.html
I've never had a problem with the fact that pro-gun activists far outnumber gun-control activists. We've discussed this many times. So, you nasty remark about my being so biased that I wouldn't post that is silly.I just got a kick out of one time outnumbering you guys. The DC gun control protest drew thousands, while your typical state pro-gun demonstration drew hundreds.You must admit, there is a big increase in the gun control side.
People are tired until death of the side of evil gunsuck morons killing our children.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Million_Mom_March"Supporters of the march reported an estimated attendance of 750,000 people at the D.C. location, with 150,000 to 200,000 people holding sympathy marches in separate locations across the country."Actually, seems like there's been quite a setback since the year 2000. 750,000 down to maybe 2000 at most? If that's a big increase, I can only imagine that barely an Assault Weapons Ban having barely enough votes to fail the US Senate, let alone the House, is also progress?http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-01-25/assault-weapons-ban-lacks-democratic-votes-to-pass-senate.html
The control of small arms will be implemented in America, for the collective good of all Americans. Whether this requires the voluntary cooperation of the United States Government is an entirely different concern. In the end, the decision to restrict the use of arms is not the prerogative of the U.S. Government. Congress ought to listen to their masters, while they are still entrusted with superficial authority.
Gun control freaks pop up like a nasty infection from time to time and then fade away. Gun owners and rights advocates are a permanent part of the American composition.
Greg, there waits a special place in Gulag for thee.
Anywhere from several hundred to over 1000 people marched on the capitals of almost every state in the U.S. on January 19th, 2013. Assuming that 250 people marched at the capital of 40 states, that is a total of 10,000 citizens that demonstrated in an event that happened only a week or so after people announced it.This received almost zero press coverage.
