Washington DC – -( More than 80,000 people attended the NRA’s Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Louisville, Kentucky, over the weekend, while “around 40” marched in a Moms Demand Action rally timed to coincide with the NRA event.

A similar scenario occurred in April 2015 as Moms Demand held a rally to counter the NRA Annual Meetings, that one held in Nashville, Tennessee. Breitbart News attended the Moms Demand Rally in Nashville and took photographs to show the group was only able to garner about 150 attendees to counter the approximately 70,000 who attended the NRA meetings.

In 2016, the disparity in size between the two groups was even more glaring. The NRA’s attendance surged by more than 10,000–to an excess of 80,000 attendees–while Moms Demand’s attendance fell to what The Courier-Journal described as “around 40” gun control proponents.

Breitbart News spoke with the NRA’s Andrew Arulanandam at the gun rights gathering on Saturday. He said the NRA was “using about every square foot” in the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center to handle the crowd. On the other hand, Moms Demand gave tickets away for “free” to its event and still drew only “around 40” attendees.

    1. 40 anti-gun split-tails; not a very impressive showing for Mikie’s Mom’s R A Life-Support System 4 A P####!

    2. Just needing confirmation please ? Does Shannon have the amazing rack that has been previously reported in the media ?

    3. Dear NRA,
      I was unable to get away to make the show, some of our friends did and were more than impressed. Thanks to you for your concerns and all those sponsors, that is what it is all about , the unity and friendship. Also watching some of the women kick our butts at the ranges. just kidding guys, not kidding ladies. Seriously knowing our daughters, wives, girlfriends and other ladies have taken an interest in protecting our loved ones with safety and respect in handling a wide variety of personal defense and sporting weapons through help and class from the NRA, makes me very proud. As a former LEO I am seeing budget cut and response time a serious problem and when SECONDS MATTER, a situation can mean life or death for a child or a senior. May Jesus Christ and our Father watch over each and everyone of the good guys and gals and keep us safe. Amen
      Papa 313 – over.

    4. In reality, the gun control has always been an emotional issue. But it is a dead issue as Hillary would have no better luck getting new laws passed than Obama did. She only touts the issue to distract from her numerous other failings!

      Remember, gun control is NOT about guns…it’s about people control!!

      1. Ken, please keep in mind that it’s more than trying to pass bills or executive orders. The Supreme Court vacancy is up for grabs which means we are ONE vote away from loosing our Rights.

    5. Let me ask you something if moms demand gun bans is funded by a billionaire jackoff, why do they ask for donations in their propaganda e-mails? Can you say extortion.

    6. Do these ‘Moms’ think going to an ‘anti-gun rally’ has the same effect as keeping their knees together?
