A Difference in Numbers

I mentioned that the National Rifle Association (NRA) Annual Meeting had 71,139 people attending and was curious how many people attended anti-gunner rallies. It seems Snowflakes in Hell was good enough to give us the skinny on an anti-gun protest that was somewhat near the NRA Annual Meeting.

According to Bitter there were somewhere between 200 and 250 protesters. I’m a fan of using worst case scenarios so we’ll assume 250 protesters were there. Put into perspective if the protesters had attended the NRA Annual Meeting they would have composed only 0.35% of the people there. Put another way we had 284.556 times as many people attending our event as they had attending their event. We decimated them as far as numbers go which isn’t surprising.
