Here's the new anti-NRA poster, from the same designer as the Obama 'hope' poster:




ETA, gotta love the AK mag in the AR platform rifle.

If this isn't media bias, I don't know what is. EVERY ONE of the pro 2A rallies had more than 100 people. Most, if not all numbering 300+ attendees, some had over 1000. We were lucky to get one or two local photographers. This **** rally has at least 5 dedicated cameramen, probably more.

I wish we can drop the "assault weapons" and "assault rifle" from the lexicon, especially among us gun owners. No firearms on its own can assault anyone.

Oh, I think this will be quite the wake-up call for some of the Dems. I can here it now, "oh ****, what have we done? I thought 90% were on our side? We may lose some votes over this one."

I forgot which political analyst stated this but I believe it was a pretty accurate:

The majority of gun control supporters are people for whom gun control is only one of many views and issues they are concerned about. Only a small core number of them are single issue voters who will invest time and money into gun control efforts.

Gun rights advocates are mostly made up of people who are single issue voters who invest their time and money heavily into gun support. Guns are such an important part of their lifestyle that for many of them a substantial portion of their waking hours are spent thinking and talking about guns and their world is in orbit around gun ownership.

Basically to summarize: while the gun control crowd may be able to muster votes or numbers they lack the will and determination of gun rights advocates and this allows the gun rights advocates to come out on top... Consider for example the size of the NRA's war chest compared to the Brady Campaign; heck Calguns foundation probably has more financial backing than the Brady Campaign!

Well, maybe there's a correlation here.
A poster done by a left wing artist depicting a gun of unknown origin.
And a poster done by the same left wing artist of a president of unknown origin.

Hmmmmm....

That poster just illistrates how much they actually know about guns. The left-wing just makes themselves look dumber and dumber.

The problem is that only the gunners notice these details.

Even gun owners that aren't familiar with an AR platform wouldn't be picking it apart like we are.

Doesnt matter how correct the art work is.
Anti gunners and people on the fence not necessarily anti, but not pro gunners wouldnt be able to tell if this is a correct depection of any existing firearm.
All they know is that they are being told to be afraid of them and avoid them at all costs these are the Devils tools and must be banished.

No it doesn't matter about the artwork you are correct. What matters is that this was a national rally and practically nobody showed up!

Please use the appropriate politically correct term... apparently now it's "Satan's" tools. Devil is so un-PC.

Speaking of which, does anyone else find it odd that the lefties injected religion into this anti-gun poster?

Anyone figure out the journalist/marcher ratio?

Reminds me of those televised marches where the KKK is vastly outnumbered by the pro-civil rights crowd...

The poster I feel attacks religion more than it attacks the NRA. It is clear the "artist" is just that an artist, and knows little about producing art to advertise an idea or product. Sure he did one logo for Obama, but that in no way makes his "art" effective at sell an idea. This is a stand alone poster and not a logo, it has to many elements trying to say to many things.

The biggest mistake is tying God into the poster the way it is done. This clearly shows his lack of understanding of American religious beliefs and culture. But hay he more than likely is an atheist and is as much in the dark about religion as he is about the gun he is trying to portray.

The turnout reminds me of the Templar Sports hearings in Los Gatos. A handful of anti's and a sea of orange signs! HAHA!
