It would appear to me that the Rutland Herald is either mathematically challenged or is knowingly putting out propaganda. The attendance at the gun control rally in Montpelier barely broke 100 persons. It certainly took some Photoshopping skills to make it appear more crowded than it was on your front page. Photographs at other sources give a more accurate picture of the low turnout.
