Anti-Gun Activist Stunt Backfires! Drives 2000+ ‘Murderers’ to Local Gun Show VIDEO

Concord, New Hampshire – -(Ammoland.com)- The New Hampshire Arms Collectors Club held their first public gun show in two years at the Everett Arena in Concord, New Hampshire this past Saturday.

It was a one-day, 200-table gun show. Set up was on Friday. The public was invited to come to the show Saturday from 9-5. On Thursday members of the club put up highway signs advertising the gun show.

That Thursday, an anti-gun activist, went around to the signs breaking the law by vandalizing them with red spray. He painted the word “MURDERS” (sic) on the signs. This was reported to the police and the story was picked up by WMUR which is the local news station. WMUR ran the story on TV multiple times that Friday, one day before the gun show’s opening day.

This gave the gun show thousands of dollars in free publicity. The next day, the line to get in the show that morning wrapped around the building. Many people attending said they came just to support the club because they were infuriated by the story. Many said it was the news story that made them aware and/or reminded them of the gun show.

There was a record turnout of two thousand attendees! It was an unbelievable financial success for the club.

Pictures appeared on social media of the person who allegedly vandalized the signs. The police are investigating. If you have any information please submit tips to the Concord, New Hampshire Police Department. The club is deciding whether to criminally prosecute whoever did this, or instead, to treat them to dinner.

wouldnt let me do a 5 star.

incorrigible

Given the predictable outcome, I have to wonder if he (or she) is friend or foe!

fireball4

I’d love to hear her/their definition of a gun show loophole.

nod

Really. I still haven’t figured out where the loophole is myself.

Ope

There is no loophole ! They think all gun shows allow private firearm sales with no background checks.

Wild Bill

It is not “allow” really, and not the gun show folks that do the regulating. But yep, you are right. For the private collection seller it is a matter of what questions not to ask.

Tionico

I think it is that part of the gun where you put in your finger to make it go BANG.

Alan in NH

Headline should be; 2000 heavily armed citizens attend NH gun show, zero problems.

KCsmith

What a poorly written article. It’s hard to take you seriously when articles on here constantly have grammatical errors. Even the title has a error.
He wrote “Murderers”, not “Murders”. You’ve gotten it wrong in the article more than you got it right. Get someone to proofread if you aren’t literate.

GomeznSA

KC – ‘pot meet kettle’ – the title quoted the sign. BTW, “title has a error” SHOULD read “title has an error” – who needs grammar lessons?
Note – I have called out folks for needing proofreaders but so far no one wants to hire me 😉

JayWPB

He wrote “Murders” on the signs I saw.

FORD Will

petulant little TURD you are! k.c. smuttlee

More Death, More Carnage!
In 2020 there were 32,824 lives lost to vehicles crashes
both accidental, and intentional. 
When will this End!
We need to BAN all cars and trucks from the roads of America!

jack mac

Biden is attempting to ban private vehicle use by increasing the cost of fuel.

musicman44mag

Yep, and I am not going on vacation this year because the cost of the trip would be 1,400.00 more and climbing every day. The rich had vacation for two years with covid, now they are making sure they get to continue it without deplorables like me to bother them.

FJB

Ope

Something has to be done about that damn “automobile violence” right now. Something !

swmft

did you see 2 killed 19 injured some critical ,need to ban cars, or smart cars only

swmft

horses and horse drawn carriages too

musicman44mag

No, No, No. That is what we are going to need pretty soon since a horse is still cheaper than an electric car. I would love to see hitchin posts all around the capitol in DC and the smell of horse shit in the morning.

Maybe that is what the protesters need. They need to ride in on horses. Even a cop would move away for a 1,500 lb. animal unless they shot it. Then the masses would be pissed and PETA would come down on them.

gsteele

So you think that hitchin posts all around the Capitol would reduce the smell of horse shit in DC to mornings-only?

Arny

Try reading it again slowly. “And the smell of horseshit in the morning”.

The Crimson Pirate

Pretty good idea. I think cops only shoot dogs. I know feds also stomp cats, but I am not sure about locals.

Wild Bill

Brother, I got the transportation of the future, right here!

pepe

250,000 people die every year from medical mistakes. Doctors and hospitals are the biggest killers in America.

Wild Bill

Careful, FJB will be banning private doctors, nurses, and hospitals next.

willyd

Doctors BURY THEIR MISTAKES!!!!!!!!!!!!

Russn8r

So does Big Pfarma.

Wild Bill

I get your point, and acknowledge FJB is trying to ban private gun and vehicle ownership.

musicman44mag

They want us all to move to the cities and use mass transit only. Easier to control the animals when they are corralled all in one spot than when they are roaming the range free.

Wild Bill

Yes, quietly sell everything in the undependable city and move to a quiet peaceful rural area then prepare your defenses.

Oldvet

WB…Just like those leaving commiefornia…
Remind them to leave their city ways in the city !
Learn to live like a free man .

FORD Will

THEY don’t

FORD Will

HOW many died from medical accidents or malpractice?? MANY, MANY more I would bet.

uncle dudley

The person who damaged the signs that he didn’t own should be found and arrested, he can be an anti-gun all he wants but he can’t deface someone else’s property and get away with it.

Wild Bill

And pay for the damages, too. Hit them in the wallet.

USMC0351Grunt

Personally? If he did that to MY gun show signs and increased my traffic exponentially like what happened here, I’d just write off the damage and move forward producing more shows with the windfall.

Russn8r

Hire him to hand out defaced fliers.

Oldvet

Grunt …Reuse them again.
Just like the comiedems rewind reuse repeat the same stories over and over . pun intended

musicman44mag

Gee, if parents at a school board meeting protest and they are considered domestic terrorists because of their words against the board and no physical action, what would this guy be considered to be? Oh, now that I think about it and apply examples of current disorder that is promoted by the left I realize he would be considered to be in the same class as the protesters that are at our supreme court judges houses and would have our NWO government support breaking the law just like it does for BLM and antifags. This is supporting the constitution vowed… Read more »

Florida Sheriff after a 10 year old treating to kill on social media , sent out a warning.

“You don’t get to shoot our children,” Marceno said during a press conference after the shooting. “You bring deadly force in this county, we are going to kill you.”

That works for me

Wild Bill

I agree when it comes to adults and even some adolescents, but I hope that the sheriff has discretion and options when it comes to ten year olds. Maybe even something as drastic as parental involvement.

Raising a beer to all those prior service out there and those that are no longer with us.

He had the 10 year old arrested he will be treated as a minor who now has a record that the courts will seal. If this was driving without a licence by a 10 year old in some states that would mean no license to drive till 21 years of adge
I am not sure what this 10 year old was thinking but to insure the safety of others in the future. This 10 year old should flagged from ever owning a gun or getting a hunting licence.

swmft

parents need to be checked out , a 10 year old usually parrots one or the other unless trying to get out of a test or term paper

john

Parents we all have them some better then others It all begins at home for those that are unsupervised by parents that are so liberal. They strive to be their child’s best friend instead of a role model .

I do not know of any teenager that does not rebel a little as their wanting to spend more time with friends and girls mostly girls.
Those who do not know who their father is or whos your daddy suffer most.

pepe

A 10 years old doesn’t think like that, his parents do.

Wild Bill

Yes, ten year olds don’t think like any adults, although some adults think like ten year olds.
Children can not form what the law calls Mens Rea.

totbs

This could very well not be his parents. What about the angst of the democrats, including the president’s words, being broadcast all over the country, the angst from MSM also being broadcast all over the country, and what is he hearing from his teachers that are telling him he’s a racist, that he’s a candidate for reassignment surgery, that he needs to join the secret LGBQ club at school and not tell his parents….When kids are being taught to be suspicious of their parents, who are they taking advice from?

musicman44mag

He was mexican. From what I have seen and learned working for the state of kommiefornia, only WHITE people can be racists.

Ope

That’s the way Biden and the socialists want it too. Only White people are responsible for all past and current problems in the country. Not many at all buy that bullshit but that’s what they want people to believe.

john

At ten years old that boy should not be thinking about killing anyone.

Wild Bill

Yes, he should not. That is why parent involvement is called for, but not a life sentence.

john

This is has been going on since 1780 school shootings by kids. What’s different now there is not a grudge for the one person or two classmates or a teacher. They are driven for political gain taught through play while parents are to lazy to understand just what their little child is really learning

john

We are at point in history if we do not stop them when it starts you will watch more history be destroyed by the younger generations. Today these young adults who call for the destruction of statues and so on. Look they removed teddy roosevelt statue ” WHY ” They think nothing of burning buildings and private property than calls for the media by the democrats asking to defund the police at some point crime will engulf the day and the law abiding citizen defends him or her self and they will become the villain. A child who threatens to… Read more »

Kids these days.

Nancy Pelosi, born March 26, 1940.

“’I don’t care that much about statues,’” Pelosi told reporters during her weekly news conference. Asked whether the removal of statues should be ‘done by a commission or the city council’ rather than by ‘a mob in the middle of the night,’Pelosi brushed off the question. ‘People will do what they do,’ she said.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/pelosi-admits-doesnt-care-statues-excuses-mobs-people-will/

Wild Bill

The standard answer is that one is a Right (a God given, natural, prepolitical, enshrined in the Second Amendment Right) the other is a license (permission from the state).
However, my answer is that both would be wrong because gun ownership and travel are both prepolitical Rights.

Ope

No 8,9,10 year old kid should be thinking about killing anyone or being murdered themselves. This event should never had happened and guns are not to blame. You can bet when the gun grabbing socialists keep saying “we have to do something”,”we have to do something” they aren’t talking about solutions that will fix this epidemic. If you tell them to secure the schools.end gun free zones and increase school security etc., they just look at you in disgust because that ain’t the “something” they’re talking about.

john

Again you are correct no child should be thinking about killing anyone ever.Today children are being programed by the video games they play. This becoming a behavior problem for those who become influenced easily by others while online playing as a group. This is no longer playing the lone ranger or buck rogers the games are as real as they can get. Parents that allow these games to be played are just as much as responsible for how that child will behave in the real world. Those parents who know that their children are walking a thin line need to… Read more »

Flagged from ever owning a gun or hunting license? A life sentence … for speech? If that were possible the marxists that control our government would be doing that to all of us.

Ope

The socialist scum wanting to criminalize truth and free speech is well within the realm of possibility. I’ve noticed many times in recent years people will sometimes pause and hesitate before truthfully answering a question that they might consider to controversial or offensive. Controversial and offensive to whom ?

john

Yes a strong message with huge consequences. The marxist are controlling our government and more violence is the result.
How do explain turning a criminal back on the streets after murdering someone there prison sentence cut to only a few years served.

I love the shooting sports I believe in the constitution and so on. What life has taught me is evil remains evil till it is stopped cold.

Wild Bill

Are we still talking about the ten year old kid?

john

Evil does not discriminate I have seen 10 12 13 year olds who have killed animals just because they could. Using fireworks rocks sticks. When you are another child and stop that you become the next victim. Evil has no age limit. A few weeks ago 5 young boys tried to kill a family of canadian geese behind the pond on my property. There mother was dumping garbage where she should not have been. When I confronted her about the children the first thing she said was I have permission to dump this garbage here. Then she denied what her… Read more »

Wild Bill

She is an enabler. The proper response is “I have pictures. I know who you are and I am going to the sheriff and game warden.”

john

The woman is not afraid of the sheriff or game warden nor was her husband. Her husband was shit head that got the message the only way he would understand it MAN TO MAN. explained how I felt and would react from then on.

Tackleberry

If you listen to some of the wording leaking out of this new congressional gun talk, a new phrase “yellow flag laws” keep cropping up. There isn’t much on it yet but any law enforcement body would decide to remove and or limit firearms under this legislation.

Uncorroborated: A couple of lines of the leaks have been “translated” into potentially undermining NYSR&PA v Bruen by giving Municipalities’ the legal arm to decide what is 2A acceptable. I think that’s a stretch, but the “politicaleez” of the wording sure seems intentionally vague.

Wild Bill

The agencies would have to be federal, since it is potential congressional action. Scary.

Luckily democrat fear of loosing seats in November should give us some leverage. Maybe a writing campaign.

Wild Bill

So the kid did something more that just express a thought. He took some action?

john

Today actions have no penalties in the liberal world.Hell the democrats do not even want them to pay back the money they owe for college loans.We watch as progressive judges turn criminals back on the streets daily. Progressives do not believe in law and order democrats prove that point daily. If you want to kill others as a boy or teenager NO GUN FOR YOU EVER. This is not finish carrots or else !!! or staying out past your parents curfew. This is taking a life which know one should ever want to do. Young boys teenagers need to know… Read more »

As has been often said,”If we could be locked up for what we think, then we’d all be in jail.”

john

When you make your thoughts known to the world they become reality. No matter what age while you are Social Media is the downfall of our nation.

Arny

A little excessive IMO. We were all kids & said dumb sh!t, not thinking. How many times as a kid did you threaten to kill someone as just a expression ? Knowing it would never go that far. The kid most likely looking for attention. Hopefully the kid will see the error in his ways.

Oldvet

Respectfully a ten year old with a weapon killing others is the same as a 30 40 50 year old they must be stopped while in the act. At ten years old if your child is think such hate that child never owning a gun is my least concern.

Wild Bill

So the ten year old kid had a weapon?

john

The ten year did not have weapon today or yesterday. The fact remains the best weapon is your own mind if you believe it is possible than you can achieve that reality.

Would you want the boy turned to a man standing behind you with a loaded weapon while on the battlefield. Even the military would reject his ability to serve after or if they know of his statements as a ten year old boy.

Wild Bill

We can not deprive an adult of his Second Amendment Right because he merely expressed a thought. How could we deprive a ten year old kid?

I would like to see all kids grow into thoughtful, educated, patriotic adults and members of the family of responsible gun owners.

john

Sorry that is a dream that most young folks will not even think about to much anti gun talk. Parents that care about their kids and are not afraid of them others as I will tell my Teacher is the Kids defence against the parent.

USMC0351Grunt

I say lock him up with the Florida Pop-Tart gun manufacturer. C’mon guys, HE’S 10!

Wild Bill

Yep, the kid’s statement bears looking into, but not a lifetime ban on his Second Amendment Rights.

john

Again respectfully while the parents were just glad he was playing video games while they rolled up some medical marijuana.
The games the young play today is where they kill and many as possible in a short time and then get rewarded for it while playing with others linked to the internet,

RicktheBear

I didn’t see any of the signs. I knew about the show from an email.

When I saw the length of the line at 9:20, I decided not to go. My mistake, apparently.

there was one in south florida that was a mob scene too I dont like crowds so no thanks

Wild Bill

Yeah, another name for “crowd” is worthy target.

swmft

yea unloaded with ziptie through the slide

Ope

It’s wonderful that the gun show went on and was such a huge success. All gun shows and firearm related events around the country should go on and never bow to socialist gun-grabbing losers and their sissy assed feelings.

Wild Bill

Gun shows are a blast! No pun intended. I just love to find some guy that has a lot of miscellany and is willing to negotiate. Gun store layouts of new guns only, not so much.

Arny

Estate sales & auctions is a go to for a deal.

wmur is the democrat mouth piece radio station.
I used to listen to Evan Nappen on the Station
FM 107 ” the Pulse.

“Stupid is a Stupid Does” now those who painted the signs should be charged with vandalism. Glad to hear of a great turnout and the success of that clubs show.

you’re gonna pay for stupid.

I hope they give him a food voucher for McDonald s instead. lol

Unknown anti-gun activist in the picture ? I would think they might be able to ID him from that picture. Is he wearing a mask ?

Norm

Likely a staged picture of a good guy taking the sign down.

do they want to catch this criminal? the feds could find (insert preferred pronoun here) if they wanted to, sometimes they even are them.

If I wasn’t otherwise promised I would have attended as it is a more than decent show, sorry to have missed it.

it has been a good show in the past
