What if they had a protest, and nobody came? Richmond rally supports more checks for gun purchases. You'll find buried in the third paragraph: "Speaking to a sparse crowd — perhaps 15 local supporters..." Fifteen? Gosh, even the gay boy-baiting NAMBLA group gathers more people than that. So my questions are: Who wrote that headline, and who was the editor that approved it? And since when does 15 souls constitute a "rally"? Their draw was closer to the scale of a Kaffeeklatsch. The turnout was pretty pathetic, when you consider the $12 million+ that Mayor Bloomberg has spent on just his group's latest background check ad campaign (including $100,000 for one Superbowl ad) and the $200,000 per year he spends for his stable of public relations spinmeisters. Talk about a poor return on investment (ROI)... It is had to believe that Bloomberg is famous for brilliant financial analysis and reporting. His ROI stinks.
