At Massive NRA Convention, Media Hypes Tiny Anti-Gun Protests
Outside the National Rifle Association convention in Dallas, Texas, this weekend, that brought together some 80,000 gun-rights supporters, a small group of fringe anti-gun demonstrators — a few hundred at most — blasted the NRA and demanded “common-sense gun-safety” legislation. The protests were dwarfed by counter-protests supporting what more than a few heavily armed attendees described as the God-given right to keep and bear arms. The pro-gun activists at the rally, not all with the NRA, set up a massive white banner with an image of an “assault rifle” on it with the words “Come and Take It” across the bottom. But in yet another illustration of the media bias and dishonesty decried by so many at the NRA convention, the establishment press largely focused on hyping the tiny anti-gun protests and their discredited conspiracy theories.
