Between 1,000 – 3,000 supporters of the Second Amendment turned up at the state capital building to protest a new gun control bill in Maryland.

The bill was being discussed in a Senate hearing and is backed by Maryland’s governor.

Their numbers surprised many observers due to Maryland’s typically Democratic voter base, but turnout was within the ranges expected by event organizers.

Many of the protestors signed up to speak at the hearing, forming a line that stretched throughout the building and outside.

The hearing ran for 8 hours.

The media bias in the coverage of this event is obvious. Anti gun protests often draw national, and at minimum, local coverage even if the number of protestors is only in the dozens. As far as we can tell, The Washington Post is the only larger news outlet covering the organization of thousands of Second Amendment supporters in a blue state.
