A Canadian take on the NRA Convention
In the Toronto Star.
Just got back, and am totally exhausted. Wayne said attendance was estimated at 60-70,000; they didn't have firm figures yet. There were somewhere around 3,000 booths. Got to meet a bunch of fellow gun bloggers -- Bitter and Sebastian, whom I'd met many times, Sharp as a Marble, SayUncle, The Smallest Minority, Joe Huffman and some others that now slip my tired mind.
David, I cannot begin to tell you how honored we all were. I know you probably got tired of hearing "Thank you", but we meant it from the bottoms of our hearts.
It was so great to meet you and David Young!

I too was incredibly honored to meet you, and David Young, at your booth. I enjoyed chatting with you in the bus ride downtown, as well. I've watched your documentary several times, and am just beginning on David's book. Your A2A brief, with Olson, was one of the best of the bunch...of many great briefs.
While we all wait for late June, I wanted to say "Thank you, David, for all you do, and all you have done."

I'm annoyed that I missed this.
