Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- The Washington Post (WAPO) is reporting that “nearly 1,000 people” took part in a pro-gun control march in Washington DC on Saturday.

CNN described the same event as a a march attended by “thousands.”

A slight discrepancy to say the least.

The WAPO reports some Newtown, Conn. residents joined “nearly 1,000 people” in a march on the National Mall on Saturday. Speakers at the march included Democrats Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) and D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray.

CNN reported on the same march as having “thousands of demonstrators” rallying for “universal background checks,” a “reinstatement of the federal ban on military-style semi-automatic rifles,” and a “ban on the sale of high-capacity ammunition magazines.”

It is known that at some point in the rally, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan addressed the crowd: “This is about responsibility, this is about gun safety, this is about fewer dead Americans, fewer dead children.”

What isn’t known is whether he addressed “nearly 1,000 people” or “thousands.”

      When the story hit the yahoo page Saturday I counted eighteen people in the picture of their march,….not “thousands”.
