The gundamentalists held rallies yesterday in a few cities and well, the headline say it all: Organizers of pro-gun rallies lament low turnout
“Student-led rallies around the country on Saturday aimed to show support for gun rights, though their effort drew smaller-than-expected crowds in a bid to counter the well-funded and organized youth gun-control lobby that emerged after the massacre in a Florida high school earlier this year.
You don’t say? Smaller than expected? But surely the mighty forces of Possum Hollar could out-rally the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School kids March For Our Lives rallies
“Student-led rallies around the country [yesterday] aimed to show support for gun rights, but their effort drew smaller-than-expected crowds.”
“Planning … started in April … [O]rganizers … expected a modest turnout, … but far fewer people showed up than organizers had hoped.”
So let me get this right: they had more time to organize, they had the NRA backing (presumably because Dana Loesch was quietly dithering about it), they had fewer cities to organize, and they still came up short?
And as an explanation for why our internet Rage Girlfriend is illustrating this post, she was twattering on Twitter last night:
It’s not a gun problem. It’s a parenting problem.

This is my favorite bit from the WaPo article:
“Organizers … said many conservative students feel as though their views are not being taken into consideration in the debate about school shootings.”
I don’t understand what the little snowflakes are feeling. They want their friends to be mown down?
“I really wanted to get into Possum Hollar’s Animal Husbandry Academy,” Jethro wistfully said, looking at sheep, “so if I waste Suzy I might have a chance!”
