They say some 2,000 folks showed up for the Bozeman chapter of the March for Our Lives rally; I think that is a little high. My sign was the AK-47 case gifted to me by Hugh Pope after a trip to Lebanon; my statement was to put ‘NO!!’ on the two banana clip pockets. I think some folks were initially confused but then understood that I was NOT advocating a kalashnikov in every school yard….A small group of pro-gun/NRA idiots (with the yellow flags in back of my brother Neill and myself and our mother) I think remained confused at my ‘sign,’ and probably were jealous. Good to have been there. (And thanks, Hugo–I usually ‘wear’ the AK case for Halloween, but this was better and more to the point!)
