    I've heard it mentioned on WBZ 1030AM. Pretty low key. No mention of attendance.

    If anyone knows of TV it will be on, I'd like to record it.

    (yes, I was there)

    [HR][/HR]
    WBZ calls us "Hundreds of Gun Rights Activists". Could be worse....

    I saw WBZ there; others have reported 5, 7, and NECN.

    Watch their broadcasts, or check their websites.

    there was a mention of it on the crawl on the bottom of the NECN screen, that was all I've seen so far.

    Decent pics that are at least taken while the Rally was in progress, and not an hour before or after.

    Wow that wcvb article was discombobulated. Even if anti they should be embarrassed.

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]From Fox news site: [/FONT]FOX25's Robert Goulston will have more on this story on FOX25 News at 10.

    I wonder if he'll amend is estimate of hundreds to the thousand + that were clearly there. He did a quick report from before the rally really got going and the traffic was down to one lane.

    Not media but the Pink Pistols Facebook group mentioned it. They were impressed with it.

    Just cause the rally is done - don't stop. Keep up the pressure. keep calling the gov and your reps ... keep writing emails. I assume they think once we all go out and blow off steam at the rally we will stop. DONT STOP

    Rally's should be a weekly thing. At some point having them at Bakers and Healeys might be needed.

    Isn't it pitiful we're just asking to be BONED with the same BROOMSTICK instead of a longer, sharper one ?

    At the height, they estimate 3K people. It was packed. Great cross section of people were there.
    thanks to those that handed out water and "loopholes" from DD.

    I agree.

    3,000 sounds about right.

    I posted this in the other thread:

    Here's a short video I took from the steps, right in front of the dais.

    Send it to anyone that says there was "100s" of people there. (Unless they're saying there was 50-hundred people there).

    WBZ reported the edict did not apply too arms prior to Wednesday. Which it does. They are illegal, just, currently and entirely at the whim of the AG, not going to be a prosecutorial priority.

    Absolutely shocked it was reported incorrectly.

    And no one will ever, ever be stopped just for failure to wear Seat Belts.

    And once the Bonds are paid, the Tolls will come down.

    CBS/WBZ reported 2000 in attendance on the 6pm news. 3000 was more like it, but the MSM reported about 20% of actual for the Jan 19, 2013 rally following
    Newtown.

    write ACTUAL letters too. Don't stop at emails. Physical letters get their attention too!
