Tea party’s armed “Constitution Rally” a flop

The March 4 “bring your guns to the capitol” rally was more or less a bust. A good number of the tea party Republicans in the House and Senate spoke to just a handful of armed demonstrators. Most of the people in attendance at the rally were members of the media and curious onlookers. As far as actual demonstrators go, I counted 17 including two children.

The rest of the attendees were board members of the Lewis and Clark Conservative Tea Party and  Tim Ravndal’s core supporters, many of whom defected from the Big Sky Tea Party Association after Ravndal was ousted from that group last summer for making offensive comments about gays on Facebook.

Advance apologies for the poor cinematography.
