Nearly three months after the Democrats and their allies decided to exploit the horrific actions of a deranged lone gunman at a Florida high school to push an anti-gun agenda, the returns are coming in and it looks like another failure of epic proportions for the bad guys.
By glomming onto a handful of student activists led by the sneering bully David Hogg to push for the erosion of the Second Amendment, the left once again has shown how out of touch with normal Americans that they have become because other than celebs and gutless corporations, nobody else bought the scam. That is especially the case with the National Rifle Association which was the target of an intense campaign to break the organization’s back by exploiting the murders at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Not only was Hogg a megalomaniac ignoramus but the very idea that Americans should surrender their constitutional rights due to a pack of whiny children throwing temper tantrums was always absurd and now it has completely backfired.
It may have Hogg and celebrity nut-muffin Alyssa Milano stomping their feet in rage but the 2018 NRA convention not only went off without a hitch but set an all-time attendance record as well.

Via The Washington Examiner “NRA claims record attendance at this year’s conference”:
A spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association said the group’s leadership forum this year set a new high for attendance.
“New record attendance for #NRAAM: 87,154 law-abiding attendees over the three-day weekend in Dallas. #2A,” Dana Loesch, a spokeswoman for the NRA, tweeted Monday.

The NRA’s annual conference took place last week in Dallas, and featured appearances by President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
During his speech, Trump urged GOP voters to head to the polls this year to ensure Republicans maintain their majorities in the House and Senate.
The president warned voters they “cannot get complacent” and criticized Democrats for “obstructing” his agenda.
Trump also spoke to concerns over the reaction his appearance at the NRA’s conference would elicit.
“You know, before today a couple people, political people, came up to me. They said, ‘You know, going to the NRA convention and speaking today, that will be very controversial. It might not be popular,'” the president said. “You know what I said? ‘Bye-bye. Gotta get on the plane.'”
That just has to be like rubbing salt into an open wound for the gun-grabbers after all of their propaganda and cyber-thuggery, especially after the news that the NRA’s PAC just had its biggest fundraising month in 15 years – THANKS HOGG!
And here’s more bad news for the left:
