This is the peak of the Anti-NRA protest on Saturday Afternoon during the 2013 NRA Annual Meeting and Convention in Houston, Texas. The mainstream media were reporting 35-40 protestors, but when you looked closely, you could tell that there were several pro-rights people engaging the antis, most likely leading to an overinflation of the count.
As I was taking this picture, a gentleman walked up to us and said, “Where are the protesters? I was looking forward to a good argument!”
On Sunday at 10am, there were no protestors to be found.
By the middle of the day on Sunday, less than a handful of protestors decided to show up. They looked pretty lost and dejected, and just paced around in small circles for a few hours.
And for some big picture perspective:
Here I am on Friday afternoon with Larry Houck at the FNH booth. (Many thanks to Larry and the other awesome Team FNH shooters for taking the time to give me an amazing detailed lesson on 3-gun shotgun reloading).
The important thing to note here is that There are more people in the background of this picture than there were anti-gun protestors at the NRA Convention.
Kevin From The Smallest Minority had a very similar observation, and he’s got some great pictures of the attendance disparity here.
