What If You Threw An Orgy And Nobody Came?

That appears to be the result when anti gun owner groups try to rally the people to spontaneously demonstrate, claiming 90% of folk insist on harsher gun owner controls. The idea was that a visible demonstration of proletariat fury would spur those lawmakers cowed by the nefarious gun lobby into taking swift and decisive action to quell these rampant lax gun laws and finally establish some gun owner control in this country (cause they obviously failed in 1934, 1938, 1968, 1986, 1988, 1994 and 1998). So, they planned a march to "expose how the National Rifle Association subverts democracy".

How'd it turn out? Not too good. Crowd estimates of 100 or less, including news media (who may as well be counted amongst the protesters) does not bode well for a popular uprising on a national issue. If 98 folks show up to oust the local dog catcher, that's something. 98 protestors (some with cameras and on the clock for the MSM) on a national issue? As J.D. Clampett would say, pitiful, just pitiful. It doesn't help their cause any that at least one protester was fed up enough to denounce ol' Bloomie his damn self.

Alas, the masses did not harken to the call, perhaps because they didn't want to miss the latest episode of The View? Or possibly because there just aren't that many folks who get all that worked up about restricting Rights.

This doesn't mean we're out of the proverbial woods. Where we are winning is socially, or culturally if you will. Politically and legally it's still a battle. And like a bad sitcom idea, they'll be back.

That has to be among the worst double entendres I've encountered in a blog post title.
