The NRA show just wrapped up this afternoon. It was a three-day event – a trade show/seminars/celebration of values. The average attendee spent a couple of hundred dollars to attend the show, including tickets for the two keynote events. If you’re a high-roller, you could drop an extra thou and get better seats. But you’d see the same event. The trade show was a huge part of the event. If you just wanted to see that for a single day, you’d spend a lot less. Well, to get in. (A new trend: people ordering goods from vendors via iPhone, Crackberry, etc.)┬áNow let’s look at how the other side rolls. Here’s the details of The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence upcoming shindig . . .
