Anti-Gun Group Faked Photo To Increase Turnout

During the NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits earlier this month in Nashville, an anti-gun group called “Moms Demand Action” held a protest against gun ownership and took a picture to “document” the turnout of hundreds supporters at the event.

The photo caption claims that it shows “hundreds” of anti-gun protesters and that it was taken a half-mile or so from the NRA Annual Meeting site.

However, so was this photo, which shows that there were only about 100 protesters including children who were dragged to the protest by “concerned” parents.

How could this be?

In short, the photo was faked according to an astute observer with on gunfreezone.net – a pro-gun organization established to vex the anti-gun movement with some sophistry of its own.

It seems that the anti-gun protesters inflated the size of their protest by staging their photo with a bunch of them standing on higher ground behind a equally small group of protesters in front creating the optical illusion of “hundreds” of participants claimed by organizers.

Other photos posted by The Blaze further show how few people turned out to protest for gun control.

One might wonder why the anti-gunners went of their way to turn 100 protesters into 400 – the number they had predicted they would show up at the event.

In the end, it didn’t really matter because even if 400 people showed up for the “Moms Demand Action” protest, the NRA Annual Meeting posted nearly 80,000 registered attendees.

So while the gun control movement depends on lies to promote their anti-gun agenda and rely on doctored photos to manufacture “popular unrest”, the NRA is on the right side of the gun debate and is burdened with the job of finding bigger and bigger venues each year to hold their annual confab as support for the Second Amendment grows.
