Million man marches ain’t what they used to be.
This past weekend’s March for Our Lives (which was really a march for gun control, and against Republicans) was supposed to attract nearly a million people- but the truth won’t fit the liberal media’s narrative. “March for Our Lives Organizers Estimate 800,000 People Attended the D.C. Rally” read one headline, which would be massive, if true. Some liberals were happy to point out that an attendance of 800,000 is more than Trump’s inauguration attracted.
With an estimated crowd size of more than 800,000 protests, yesterday's march in D.C. was the largest single day protest in the city's history, according to @AMarch4OurLives. THIS is what happens when students lead movements. 👏 #MarchForOurLives https://t.co/ZjQTpm6Gsn pic.twitter.com/JLWjbUe6re

According to the Daily Caller:
Around 200,000 people attended the March For Our Lives gun control event in Washington, D.C. Saturday afternoon, CBS News reported.
The number is well below the 500,000 number organizers of the event expected and 600,000 less than initially reported by many news outlets immediately following the celebrity-fueled march and rally. The march took place between noon and 3 p.m. on Pennsylvania Avenue between 3rd Street NW and 12th Street NW.
There were, however “Marches for Our Lives” in other cities across the country. It’s estimated that there were 800 other marches going on, while the main one took place in Washington, D.C. The attendance estimates reported are only of attendees in Washington, D.C., so it’s impossible to know the overall attendance unless there was an attempt at estimating attendance in every city there was a March.
What qualifies as one of the 800 other “marches” remains a mystery, too. The organizers publicized the fact that there was even a “March for Our Lives” in Antarctica, so clearly they’re stretching quite a bit. How much did that March add to the attendance figures? Two people?
Of course, the turnout truly is irrelevant. The great thing about Constitutional rights is that they can’t be voided by a parade of aggrieved teenagers seeking to take away our guns.
What do you think about the lackluster turnout at the gun control marches this past weekend? Are you surprised? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below!
