Washington DC --(Ammoland.com)- The Stop the NRA March, was held yesterday afternoon, to protest against gun violence and the NRA.
The event was so poorly attended that it was embarrassing for the media assigned to cover this non event, as they must have felt their bosses thought they were not up to the task of covering a real news story.
That is unless the story was that no one in the USA but politicians and the media want more gun control.
Participating organizations include:
- President Obama’s Moveon.org
- Brady Campaign
- Occupy the NRA
- Every Child Matters
- United For Change, USA
- New Yorker’s Against Gun Violence
- The Other 98%
- We Act Radio
Yeah, we never heard of half of these groups and it was obvious no one else had either.
As Buzzfeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro noted, the event featured the debut of a new anti-NRA poster created by Shepard Fairey – the designer of the famous Obama ‘Hope’ poster.

An extremely generous estimation of the crowd size would have been about 100 people, including members of the media and bystanders.
