As reported by NRA-ILA, pro-gunners apparently were not the only ones in Nashville last weekend for the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits. Moms Demand Action for Gunsense in America were apparently there also, but nobody seemed to notice. Until they got caught creatively spinning “facts.” Big shock there.
The social media post by MDA reads “Just blocks from the NRA convention, hundreds of moms, dads and kids gathered today to show that we’ll go anywhere to bring the message of gun sense to America! Join our fight, we’re just getting started.”
Hundreds, you say? That’s cute, compared to the nearly 80,000 that attended the NRA meetings down the street. And “hundreds” might seem reasonable if you take the accompanying photo at face value. However, as usual, one just cannot seem to take anything this group says at face value.
It just so happened that there was another photographer in the area that captured the real story with this photo. What was claimed to be “hundreds” of anti-gun zealots shows the actual anemic turnout for their photo op was really only a few dozen – including the children that were dragged to the event for their dose of indoctrination. Perhaps technically since there have been slightly more than one hundred there, they feel comfortable calling it “hundreds.”
So how did they do it? Trick photography, of course. They arranged people in a funnel shape with a few people in the front, fanning out toward the rear so that the attendees filled the field of view – and no more – to give the appearance of a large crowed as far as the eye can see.
Just a reminder that when you see the anti’s propaganda machine output, caveat emptor!
