Never mind - it's over.
15 people! Why, that's about the size of the protest at the NRA Convention!March for gun control
About 15 people with signs supporting stricter gun control legislation walked along Rivermont Avenue Sunday. Participants represented Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Organizing for Action, both national organizations. According to the group's website, Moms Demand Action held dozens of walks in cities across the country during Mother's Day weekend, promoting their cause and honoring victims of gun violence. "We don't want to infringe on anyone's second amendment rights or do away with guns," said walker Phil Stump. "We want to make sure guns are used responsibly and don't fall into the hands of criminals."
Does anybody else see the presence of OFA (is it pronounced Oh-FAY?) as being a bit suspicious? We have been told that Obama and Bloomberg will not give up on background checks, "assault weapons" bans, and bans of normal-capacity magazines, notwithstanding the trouncing they took recently. Some folks think that's just tinfoil chatter, but the marriage of these two groups does make the ol' spider sense tingle.
Someone with a strong stomach really ought to monitor these groups and pass the word on when they are gathering so that an opposing voice can be presented in a polite, dignified manner.
