On Friday, liberal feminist women spent the day protesting the National Rifle Association by marching from Fairfax, Virginia, to Washington D.C.

The organizers of the march are the same women who organized nationwide marches for the day after President Donald Trump was inaugurated in January. Those marches drew millions, including several hundred thousand people in Washington alone.

The march came after the NRA last month released a controversial ad in which they were accused of advocating for violence against the mainstream media, Hollywood and any other entity that advocates restricting Second Amendment rights.

The controversy surrounded a line in the ad where the narrator says the way to fight back against those who want to restrict the Second Amendment is to “fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth.”

The purpose of the march hinged on that line. According to The Hill, a Facebook event page for the march read: “We know that we are not safe. But we will not be intimidated into silence.”

“Recent actions of the NRA demonstrate not only a disregard for the lives of black and brown people in America, but appear to be a direct endorsement of violence against women, our families and our communities for exercising our constitutional right to protest,” the event page said.

But according to Townhall.com and images of the event’s leaders, the march’s leader’s hypocrisy was in full display as they walked around with armed security and were even followed by protective vehicles. Those walking around with security included Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, according to reports.

Leftist agitators like Linda Sarsour and Shannon Watts hiring armed protection while demanding the rest of us turn in our guns into government bureaucrats is nothing new. Watts does the same every time she shows up to protest at the NRA annual meeting. Former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who pays Watts millions to take away the Second Amendment rights of everyday Americans, doesn’t go anywhere without his security detail.

In addition to the march from the NRA headquarters to the Department of Justice building in Washington, the group also released a list of three demands in response to the NRA ad, including calling for the indictment of a Minnesota police officer who was found not guilty of manslaughter in the shooting death of Philando Castile.
