The failure of the Second Amendment March is all NRA’s fault! Funny,Â I seem to recall seeing a reminder in NRA’s Grassroots Alerts for several weeks approaching the march. The problem is, our folks aren’t much for protesting. That’s not anyone’s fault, it’s just the nature of the beast.Â I seem to recall back in February of last year saying as much:
The main that will likely go wrong is you get, if youâ€™re really lucky, a thousand or so to show up.Â Even in this lousy economy, most gun owners have a job, and have families, which means they have better things to do than to attend protests.
PA gun rights groups organize a rally every spring in Harrisburg, and if it get enough people to fill the Capitol Rotunda, itâ€™s a good turn out.
I would say that the D.C. rally got some decent press coverage. It wasn’t really a failure. They tried to do something positive, and trying is more than most people who are in this issue ever do. There’s been no harm done. I don’t think there’s any reason to throw blame around. Get back on the horse and try something else.
