Last year's pro-gun rally.
That was last year's crowd. It wrapped around the East side of the Bell Tower. The crowd was large and aggressive, even arrogant.
This year's pro-gun rally:
Smaller crowd, fewer signs . . . this year's crowd was almost sullen. This year's crowd did not extend below the South side of the Bell Tower, which suggested to me that today's crowd was just slightly more than half of last year's crowd--maybe less.
