We did have some protesters yesterday, but they weren’t punctual, so I missed them. The Charlotte Observer covered it, and you can see more pics over at Joe’s. Four people to do a “lie in?” Here’s what one small section of our show floor looks like, as viewed from the press booth at the Annual Meeting:
This is why we win, and Protest Easy Guns loses. The other reason we win is a story told to me by someone who works for NRA about an NRA member who donated 450 dollars. The guy had been out of work for a few years, had two disabled children, but he wanted to do something to help preserve the Second Amendment. So he and his wife collected cans from roadsides and public places, until they had saved up enough money. And they were apologizing for not being able to give more. Really makes you realize why we all keep doing this, and need to keep doing this.
The other side was lucky to have rich donors. We have a lot of people like this, who are our side’s lifeblood. This is why we win.
