February 23rd has been touted as a “Day of Resistance” for gun zealots for well over a month now. Local talk show hosts, Breitbart, various pro-gun Facebook pages, including some that were created in the name of the event itself, and good old word of mouth was sure to manifest into massive crowds of gun nuts holding their 2nd Amendment signs with their usual assortment of misspellings, as well as their passionate anti-Obama sentiments.
Well, as it turns out, all that bluster turned out to be just plain old hot air. In a few places across the nation, turnout was very disappointing.
At the “Western New York Day of Resistance,” the turnout was sad enough to make one person shed some tears. The following post could be found on their Facebook page.
“I was very alone in Corning N.Y. today. I honestly thought more people cared about our 2nd Amendment. My Father, who could not attend due to a doctor’s appointment, called and asked how it was going. I sent him a picture of just me standing there. I think he cried a little, I know I did.”
Also on that Facebook page were posts lamenting the poor turnouts in Albany and in Buffalo. This is in a state that just last month passed the nation’s strictest gun control laws.
Down in North Carolina, this video was taken of a bunch of forlorn looking people standing around, waiting for something exciting to happen. Hardly the scene we’d expect to see from a group of star-spangled, gun-loving patriots!
At the Georgia State Capitol, a reported 4 people showed up.
On the National Protests Against Obama Facebook page, were posts like these…
“No one showed here in MT, well except for me!”
“I stood in Olympia Washington by myself for like an hour”
“A little over a dozen in Colorado”
“Wife and I drove 30 miles to St. Paul MN. Only a few people were there at 11:15 a.m. Depressing.”
“I drove to Oklahoma City, no one there. So disappointed.”
So there you have it… the “Day of Resistance” turned out to be resistance alright… resistance to going out and standing with a few other like-minded gun nuts and being made fun of by liberal meanies like us here at AATTP.org
It surely would have been more fun had the turnout been higher and more spirited. That would have led to many photo opportunities of misspelled signs, and the chance to shoot videos of some of the nuttiest displays of human behavior in modern American history, like this one.
Han Chimpson spends a lot of time monkeying around at the Ayn Rand Collected Social Security page, and thinks you are cool enough to do the same.
