Per reports of the Washington Times. If you go be ready to get into a counter protest but please try real hard not to shoot anyone.

Bloomberg anti-gun groups eye disrupting NRA convention
by Paul Bedard | Apr 17, 2017

President Trump's decision to be the first president in three decades to speak at the annual National Rifle Association convention is drawing heat from two anti-gun groups that now plan to travel to Atlanta to disrupt the massive event.

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Everytown for Gun Safety - funded by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg - on Monday decried Trump's plans and warned:
"Our volunteers will be in Atlanta during the NRA's annual meeting, just as we have been showing up at town halls and in statehouses across the country to stand up for the safety of our families and communities. We will not be silenced."

The 146th Annual NRA convention will be held April 27-30. It is a combined trade show and public affairs convention where supporters of the Second Amendment typically speak. Last year, for example, several GOP presidential candidates including Trump spoke.

Oh my, remember what they told us: when arguments get heated and tempers flare, inevitably, the guns come out and blood flows in the streets. :panic:

So, I guess the antis are either super fearless, facing what they believe to be a real and credible danger to their lives (armed GWL holders), or they have been lying all along about the dangers of GWL holders and know it.

The implication is that somebody is trying to silence them. :lol: Really? Who?

In 2014, 156 Moms showed up in Indianapolis. In 2015, a little over 100 Moms showed up in Nashville. In 2016, a few dozen Moms showed up in Louisville.

No one's trying to silence the Moms. They seem to be doing a good enough job on their own. They should rename themselves the Irrelevant Moms.

Now the real question is... where are they bringing them in from... NY, Mass, Ct, NJ.... ? It's almost never Atlanta... or even Georgia for that matter !

Correct. They are Bloomberg and Soros paid shills/antagonists. Based on past exposés, they are bused in from deep blue northeastern states and given $1500 a pop. We saw the same s- last year with the Trump rally agitators.

'We won't be silenced!' code for: 'We'll scream into your face in lieu of reasoned debate in order to convince you we are right.'

Counter protesting this should be easy enough. Just drive home that if we (gun owners) were as violent as they claim we are there would be no anti-gun movement.

I was thinking twice as many people holding signs that say "I didn't come from out of state and get paid $1500 to hold this sign!"

Nicely kicks the debate back to what's actually going on there.

Given the trend mentioned a few posts above, "twice as many people" should be about...two.

Print this. As if any would recognize the speaker.

Even easier. Ask Shannon Watts why she has an armed security detail.

Anyone have any concern over Antifa being in attendance?
Atlanta isn't Berkeley. APD will arrest them if they assault anyone.
