The protest that wasn't

This past weekend the NRA successfully wrapped up it's most attended convention ever with a total attendance of 73,740 peaceably armed citizens (except for the fact that America's Center has a no weapons policy.) 

In contrast, this video shows what I count to be seven people in city hall holding a press conference to announce a protest to be held on the grounds of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. 

That's a ratio of 10,534 to 1.   

When I searched for 'NRA Protest Arch Grounds' nary a return came up, and instead more links for the above video.   I received the digital equivalent of crickets.  

Of course maybe once the protesters realized that H.R. 627 allowed folks to go armed according to state firearms laws, they wet their pants in fear.
