A few hundred protesters gathered on a small patch of grass outside the Capitol Building for rally in favor of new gun control measures on Thursday.
In an email promoting the event last week Everytown for Gun Safety had promised to “flood the Capitol grounds with gun sense supporters,” and said the protest would be “massive.” Everytown did not provide an estimate on crowd size in their press release summarizing the event
The protest, while small, was heavily attended by media. Cameras from many local and national news outlets set up toward the back of the crowd. International outlets, such as France24, also covered the event.
Compare that to the coverage not received by the All Lives Matter March, which was attended by thousands.
