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.) Now let’s look at how the other side rolls. Here’s the details of The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence upcoming shindig . . .

Let’s see…a 3-day, populist event attended by several thousand average, middle-class Americans, versus a one-night gala, with a minimum hit of 500 simoleans. Which event do YOU think is mainstream, and which is elitist?
