NRA versus Moms Demand (A “grassroots” organization…)

My source from the NRA Board Meeting had reported in, and attendance this year was 80,452. This is the second highest attended Annual Meeting. Houston still holds the overall record of 86,228.

And Shannon Watts could not get but “dozens” that didn’t even fill a small university theater.

But the garage sale of quilts was rather nice.

  1. I recall reading an article about a previous convention giving city crimes reported during the convention. After all, with an additional 80k of gun toting strangers, to hear the rhetoric from the gun control lobby you’d expect the crime figures to go through the roof.
    It would be interesting if the reported crimes to have declined during the convention.

    It has been in the past. I’m not well versed in where to look up local crime stats but I’m sure someone here has the skills.

    • I am going to wait till tomorrow to be sure, but CrimeMapping shows NO crime during the NRA AM weekend

      • Then take a look at the previous weekend. Would be interesting to see if convention resulted in a drop in crime.
        Though I’m sure someone would be quick to mention that correlation doesn’t equal causation. Except when it furthers the gun control lobby’s cause. Then perception is everything.

        • Hey! Gimme a break! I went to the oral surgeon today… he gives good drugs 😀

          I should have a post tomorrow, don’t sweat it. 🙂

  3. According to a LPD officer I spoke with (off the record), he said the ‘usual suspects’ were nowhere to be found after Wednesday night! 🙂

    • I am guessing when they tell you 80,000 armed people are gonna show up, you figure it is time for a vacation on the other side of town.
