Everytown Rally Experiences Big Hype, Little Turnout

posted on September 12, 2015

The “Whatever It Takes” rally held by Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun Everytown group in front of the U.S. Capitol received massive coverage this week, and it was attended by representatives of major national and international media outlets. It also featured speeches by U.S. Senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner, both D-Va., along with Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

Anyone who attended the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Nashville won’t be surprised at the one missing ingredient—actual protestors. The Washington Free Beacon reports that only a few hundred showed up, despite promises from Everytown to “flood the Capitol grounds with gun sense supporters.” It turns out that while Bloomberg and friends are good at drumming up celebrity support, they’re not very good at this whole grassroots thing.
