Rather a bit of CNN puffery. Take a careful look at their pictures. None is is areial overview and most stay very close to the crowd and the ground. Looks like the "blocks long" was about two blocks and "thousands" were maybe one or two thousand. Then compare that the the number of paying participants at gunshows just this past weekend.

They’re beating the drums for this tiny patch of astroturf.

Meanwhile, they “missed” the March for Life, with 100X more marchers.

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” (Thomas Jefferson Quoting Cesare Beccaria)

Washington Post today: "Gun-control supporters march on the Mall -- Nearly 1,000 people, including residents of Newtown, Conn. — where 26 people were killed Dec. 14 at an elementary school — call for tougher firearms legislation."

"Nearly 1,000 people"?????

How much time and wide view footage did CNN and the rest of the MSM devote to the March for Life?

These people don’t give a damn for the innocent!

Excellent observation, but even you’re being generous to call it thousands. What I saw in their sweeps was, maybe, 200 people. I didn’t see nearly a thousand.

***Thousands of demonstrators rallied Saturday in Washington to demand tougher gun control laws,***

OK, lets compromise. What will YOU give up in order for US to give up some of our gun rights?

YOU GOT NOTHING except screaming and yelling! We got guns. There can be no compromise.

Take at a look of the HUGH crowd on the mall at 0:33 in the video.

Those B&W name signs look like they were made by the guy who did these.

And how many CNN video reports were there from around the nation when 2nd amendment advocates thronged to their state capitols last weekend?

Hint: You won't need a calculator.
