Schmeits discusses the record-breaking attendance at the 2009 Meetings in Phoenix, Arizona, with Cam & Co. The NRA first vice president tells Edwards that 47,000 people attended the convention on Friday alone, and that the Members Banquet, with 6,000 in attendance, became the largest meal served in the history of the state of Arizona. Schmeits says he thinks these numbers send a message to anti-gun campaigners: "The people of the United States are concerned about freedom."
