    We had a great turnout in Salem, Oregon. At least 2500 showed up (media reported "hundreds" to "1000", lol) and some great speakers. One of our Portland stations reported very enthusiastically about how nice everyone was, and how it was by far the most peaceful demonstration he'd ever attended.

    I didn't see any counter-demonstrators, even though we had a lot of "Occupy NRA" publicity trying to rally the troops to show up. Goes to show....

    Did anyone go to the Columbus, OH rally. From what I understand there were a couple thousand there. I'm appalled by the lack of media reporting. The Columbus Dispatch had no mention of it in Sunday's paper unless it was buried someone, but I couldn't find. Further proof that the media only reports what fits their agenda.

    Been 40 years since I participated in a U.S. government protest on the grounds of the Texas state capitol.

    MrsDoc waved our Gadsden flag.

    first there and last to leave

    I listened to Nutnfancy and the Rest at the Utah Gathering and after hearing a bunch of clicks behind me the AP Photographer got my opinion and info on the event. was cold as all get out but a very worthwhile day.

    I especially like the sign that says:

    "Fix the economy, not the bill of rights."

    I especially like the "flag holder" you chose. :)

    Let's focus on the activism aspects and not get caught up in the insignificant congratulatory back slapping.

    What can be done to get the media to report more accurately on these? How do we get people to actually account for their attendance?

    a) go to the next rally

    b) bring two people with you who did not go to the last rally

    We need to have so many people show up that we cannot be ignored.
