Fail. Less Than 200 Anti-Gun Leftists Turn Out for March on NRA Headquarters in Washington DC

It was not exactly the large protest they had wanted.

A sign from today’s protest. (CREDO)

Only 200 liberals marched to the NRA headquarters in Washington DC today.
The Huffington Post reported:

Gun control advocates marched to the National Rifle Association’s Capitol Hill office on Monday, in an effort to pressure the powerful organization to stop standing in the way of reform.

“The NRA has blood on their hands,” said Becky Bond, political director of the progressive advocacy group CREDO, which led the protest. “As one of the most powerful lobbies, the NRA has fought tooth and nail to weaken gun laws and is responsible for countless American deaths. In the wake of the terrible tragedy at the Sandy Hook Elementary school, the NRA must stand down and stop trying to prevent Congress from enacting sensible gun control laws that could save lives.”

The NRA spent $2.2 million lobbying Congress through the end of September, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. The gun control lobby, on the other hand, spent just $180,000. In addition, the NRA dished out nearly $18 million in the 2012 elections, with most of it going to attack President Barack Obama.

Organizers estimated that around 200 people participated in the protest on Monday, including some political staffers who worked nearby and took some personal time to show their support for gun control.

The group met a couple of blocks away and then walked over to the NRA’s offices, with some shouting, “Shame on the NRA!” While there, CREDO campaign manager Josh Nelson began the event with a moment of silence for the victims of the Newtown, Conn. shooting.

    An unarmed female teacher gave he life to protect students at Spring Hook. That takes guts, would any of these male protesters perform the same honorable act if one of their loved ones was threatened?

    Or would they wet themselves waiting for police to arrive?

    Methinks the latter.

    The NRA is a very powerful organization and carries weight with Congress precisely because they have millions of members they represent. Such organizations are never deemed “bad” when they propel the causes of the Left.

    When they say the NRA has blood on their hands, they are actually saying that millions of Americans (honest and law-abiding) have blood on their hands.

    Projection, methinks, is the source of much of their rage. The Left owns responsibility for the deaths of millions of Third World souls due to the malaria they were forced to endure (ala Silent Spring) when pesticides were banned. They own the millions of unborn who are slaughtered according to their desire. They are complicit in sanitizing the tens of millions of death-by-government murders under communist regimes they supported. Their policies guarantee death and misery. They have engaged in a war to rid our nation of Christian influence, which is the root of most of the social decay we are seeing.

    The Left, not the Right, has a whole lot of blood on their hands.

    At the end of the day, gun control comes down to citizens who will not be made serfs by cowardly sorts who desire their opponents to be disarmed BEFORE imposing the most onerous of their plans. It has always been about disarming their opponents so they cannot oppose them and their totalitarian goals.

    Unfortunately, stopping a killer at two victims or less by an armed citizen just doesn’t make a story like 27 dead because there was no one could shoot back. It is hard to argue the negative. The media can just splash the victims up on the screen and we get the tragedy. You can’t argue these people aren’t dead. But when a gunman is thwarted by a concealed carrier, the potential body count is speculative. You can’t say 25 people were saved because the gunman was stopped. Concealed carry can only be argued statistically, and here’s where the media becomes statistically challenged, despite spouting day after day the statistics of their favorite causes.

  • It’s Time To Repeal the 2nd Amendment!

  • BurmaShave

    200 protesters! oooo wow!

    So what? 200,000++ protesters march every years for life to save millions from abortion, but the Progressives could not care less. What jackass would give a fig for 200 protesters who do not care about roaming murderous lunatics?

  • Shallow minds attack the symptom and miss the cause. Their time would be better spent demanding an end to violent video games that desensitize kids to brutality and killing. The killers at Columbine were just acting out a real-life video game. The types in Hollywood most critical of a gun culture are the very ones who glorify gun violence as a preferred resolution to life’s problems and have done so for almost a century. The guy in Aurora was imitating his Hollywood hero. Gangsta culture espouses women as objects and gun crime as the way to gain notoriety and wealth to the point little kids think it cool to make feeble gang signs and strike the pose in pictures. Chicago is a gansta factory where a Newtown happens every month.

    So if these ‘do-gooders’ want to be effective and demand we lose our inalienable rights such as self preservation then perhaps their time would be better spent at protesting the cause by reigning in Hollywood producers and music moguls from profiting from their subliminal free expressions of violence.

    Why did they leave out such care in ObamaCare? Didn’t Obama give a damn? I’m quite sure he, Rahm, Harry Reid and everyone else are extremely eager to blame some object like a gun. They sure as hell don’t want any attention coming back to them, with the American people figuring out they were to blame.

  • From my website. I waited for a couple of days. I think a key point here was made by my very bright friend.

    He said, “If you boil all of these incidents down to the most basic common denominator you are left with mental illness.”

    My dad spent his career in the field and back in the seventies was very concerned over the desire of the Left to let the insane go. As I point out in my post, doing such is like attributing human characteristics to animals and hoping they act right.

    –My dad was in this area all his career and saw the dangers early on. “Wish, this is a bad idea. They cannot take care of themselves, and some are just dangerous on their own.” He worried many would disappear onto the streets or end up doing harm to themselves or others. This was in the seventies or earlier! He knew because he had common sense, and no more can you assign animals human personalities and expect them to act like humans can you expect the mentally ill to respond to the freedoms we enjoy by acting like a normal person. (”Oh that is such a cute looking lion. I just know he realizes I’m his friend and that is why is he coming closer and showing such a wide smile!”)–

    If we took all the crimes and fed them through a filter identifying which ones were committed by the mentally unstable, you’d be horrified to see the number. Yet people are afraid to speak the truth.

    Dad was right.

  • Marmo

    I think our public schools should implement age-appropriate classes on gun safety and use. Why not? It would help prevent accidental deaths from children finding and mishandling guns at home, and it would create a more gun-aware and respectful society. Not to mention, schools equipped with firearms for instructional purposes, and people trained to use them, would be much less of a soft target than schools are today.

  • Buzzy

    “Teachers stand up to gunmen” and so too did the principal at Sandy Hook. Where is she today? I so agree with one of my favorite’s in the House Gohmert. If she had a weapon she could have run toward the murderer and taken his head off, maybe before the number got to 26.

  • Buzzy

    With the fact that 6 teachers and administrators in Sandy Hook were reduced to nothing more than sitting ducks in a pond, these people have to have at least a shred of knowing that the liberals have put every one of them in a very dire and unwinnable position. I really do believe some at least are going to rethink their no option positions by the idiots. They can just paint bullseye’s on their foreheads for where they are currently sitting.

    Let me inform you of something, you leftists have been very good at continually pursuing bad ideas, even voting on the same stupid laws over and over until they pass. The “silent majority” as they have been called are not being silent anymore, they’re pissed and are not going to put up with it anymore, their voices are being heard more and louder.

    Some 10-15 years ago, Holder proposed this:

    “One thing that I think is clear with young people and with adults as well, is that we just have to be repetitive about this,” Holder told the Women’s National Democratic Club while discussing how to curb gun violence in D.C. “It’s not enough to simply have a catchy ad on a Monday and then only do it every Monday. We need to do this every day of the week and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”

    http://washingtonexaminer.com/holder-has-called-for-anti-gun-campaign-by-media-cultural-figures/article/2516161#.UM9WSayk07A

    Note how he states repetition (brainwashing) is needed for adults too.

    This is what they do…they get their message (i.e., lies) out.

    The Right had better not be slow to correct the record.

    (Note, too, it wasn’t Holder’s interest to teach *healthy, responsible behavior*, but to reach young people with a campaign concentrating on what’s considered “cool” — “… focus on convincing young people that “it’s not acceptable, it’s not hip to carry a gun anymore.”)

    #16 & #17, The beauty of our God Given Second Ammendment is, You John McCain and the rest of the leftist Gestapo’s will have to come door to door to take them away against people who have an inherent ability through that Ammendment to stop you! That’s approximately 90 million people with over 300 million Firearms. I notice your Godless Chinese friends, speaking up against our God Given Second Ammendment Right’s the other day. That would make sense since they can’t come over here like they would like to and participate in our slaughter untill Obama and you lefties in both the repub and dem party disarm us.

    I also notice you NOT piping up and speaking against Obama when he promised to send M-1 tanks and F-16 jet’s to his muslim briotherhood buddy morsi in Egypt who just had voted in a sharia slave state and constitution. Strange your not squeamish about those madmen having those weapon’s.

  • Wake up

    It’s not a liberal issue! Stop being so paranoid and divisive. It’s a human issue. Our country has gun freedom and is less safe and has gun related deaths way out of proportion to countries with gun control. With freedom comes responsibility. You’re gun carrying patriots are not being responsible and gun deaths are causing an epidemic of death. If this were a disease killing people would you label people trying to stop it “liberal”. I will repeat: the excess of guns and semi automatics In our society has caused more deaths than prevented them. Wake up people!!!

  • #58 glennbeck,

    Let me remind you of something in the form of a saying, “When seconds count, the police are only minutes away!”

    And when your life is in danger some time, don’t call someone you know has a gun because he would go to prison using it to save your worthless life! So I guess you’re going to have to go buy a baseball bat to defend yourself against a criminal with a gun, because after all:

    “When they outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns.” And lawful gun owners are not the problem, it’s liberals who believed that crazy people who needed to be locked up in mental hospitals had the right to not be locked up against their will. And so the government, liberals, defunded all the mental institutions, hospitals, and mental health care facilities and turned all the crazy people out onto the streets. Now I hear that Lanza’s mother lamented on Facebook that she had no place to “put” him and she was scared to death of him. She didn’t say, “All those gun owners are scaring me to death, it was her crazy ass son who she wished there was a mental hospital she could have put him so he wouldn’t be able to hurt anyone.

    So you can blame the touchy feely liberals who didn’t believe crazy people like Lanza should be locked up for the death of these poor defenceless children. Oh yeah, the Principal had been so brain washed by liberalism to the point where she couldn’t think “weapon” on her way to using her body as the weapon to try and stop this maniac. She couldn’t even think, scissor’s, heavy book to “hit” with, a pencil, any damn thing to use as a “weapon” has been washed completely out of her thinking. Nor did any of the other people in the office think “weapon” when they saw the guy either. It’s a crime what liberalism has done to this society when people cannot even think what defending themselves means anymore that they can’t think to pick something up to at least throw at the guy maybe slowing him down for a second long enough to be able to jump on him and get the gun out of his hand…..never dawned on them.

  • Does anyone know if there was an SRO officer on the premise or if they had one for the school? Budget cuts? Don’t like “armed people” on school grounds because of the signal it sends?

    Here in Florida we have them in every school.

    December 11, 2012

    Federal Appelate court strikes down Illinois’ total
    ban on concealed carriage as unconstitutional

    A False Ad About Assault Weapons

    [Machine Guns Still Illegal

    Contrary to what the ad clearly implies, any weapon that can fire 300
    rounds per minute remains illegal for civilians to own without specific
    clearance by the US Department of Justice.

    In fact, machine guns have been tightly regulated since the passage of the National Firearms Act in 1934, in the wake of the gangster era. Legal ownership of a machine gun requires an extensive federal background check, fingerprinting, signed clearance from the chief of local law enforcement (such as a county sheriff), a $200 excise tax, and weeks of paperwork. That was true before the assault-weapon ban was enacted in 1994, and it remains true with the expiration of the ban at midnight Sept. 13, 2004.

    That’s made clear in a question-and-answer document posted Sept.
    13 on the Web site of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
    Explosives (ATF), explaining the effect of the expiration of the assault
    -weapon ban:

    ATF: All provisions of the National Firearms Act (NFA) relating
    to registration and transfer of machineguns . . . still apply.

    The fully automatic version of the AK47 — pictured and described
    in the ad — remains just as illegal as it was before the ban expired.]

    bottom line:

    December 17, 2012

    There is no antidote for Evil

    [There is no other explanation for the events in Newtown, Connecticut
    last week. Guns were the tool, not the cause. Even to blame ‘mental
    illness’–as many have in the past three days–would be too simplistic.

    By its inherent definition, a criminal is one with disregard for laws, or
    one for whom the consequences of breaking a law outweigh the gain
    that individual plans to achieve from breaking a law. That means that
    no matter how many gun laws or “Gun-Free Zone” signs America has,
    criminals will still attain firearms, and they will still use them to commit
    heinous acts.

    The reality of gun control is that it only disarms law-abiding citizens –
    the very people who could use a firearm to protect themselves, their
    families, or, dare I say it, their students. There are countless examples
    of people using guns to thwart the efforts of criminals–particularly in
    robberies and home invasions. But these stories are not nearly as
    widely reported as stories of shootings are.]

    Bravo to the teachers who DID stand up to the latest mentally-ill, law-breaking murderer, and prayers for their families, but in the average “gun-free” ersatz Utopia school zone exactly WHAT is a teacher to do?

    Combine impassioned pleas of “Please don’t shoot” with a threat to revoke the shooter’s hall pass or write a stern note threatening detention? Zero “punch” in either if the shooter is a student, even less if not.

    Far too similar to the current MISadministration’s demonstrated foreign policy of sternly-worded displeasure and “viewing with concern” murderous foreign leaders and groups as tens of thousands are slaughtered. So much for the “superior” compassion of our ruling Overlord “betters”. “Halt! Halt, I say, or I shall pout quite forcefully! I really mean it this time!!”

    Would that one or more of the Sandy Point school’s staff had a CCW and the opportunity to help this whacked-out shooter assume room temperature right at the beginning before he could reach the students.

    Not to belittle the efforts of those teachers that tried to shield the childern, but cowering on the floor is not “Standing Up to Gunmen” Throwing chairs, desks, staplers, or perferably BULLETS would be standing up to gunmen.

    Here is a legislative proposal:
    Let the teachers at each school decide if they want to arm. Couple this with school vouchers so parents can decide if they want their kids going to an armed school or gun free school. If teachers do not want to arm then parents should be allowed to volunteer.

    Yes. We know. Guns kill people just like pencils misspell words and spoons make people fat.

    Fewer. Not less.
