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.

  1. Where’s Sandra Fluke?

  2. 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.

  3. Scratch “Spring” replace with “Sandy” – my fault.

  7. What a bunch of idiots. When did the nra go into a school and shoot up some kids. Drink some more koolaid libtards.

  8. That’s why I went to my favorite retailer this morning for several new rifles, and a handgun for the wife. Get them while you can.

    It took me 3 hours because the firearms section was absolutely packed. The local gun show last weekend was also packed to the rafters with buyers.

    Those freakish leftists are the best gun salespeople.

  9. But they do not march against OBAMA and his war all over the map and Benghazi massacre

  10. I did the same today, went & spent $10,000 on more ammo & a couple of more guns… Come get’em if you can liberal M Fer’s!!!!!!

  11. Useful tools on display again…..

  12. 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.

  14. The movement to ban guns will not cease! More and more will join us until we ultimately repeal the second amendment!!!

    It will take education and informing the people, but IT WILL HAPPEN

  15. Word is that John McCain will be joining the anti-gun movement soon as well!!

  16. 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?

  17. 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.

  18. Jim Jones,a liberal Democrat was responsible for over 800 deaths.
