A short time ago, Fred sent a message to all Appleseeders. He advised them to "steel themselves" for the result.
I felt the article was surprisingly well-balanced and it hit on the major talking points that the general public has about the program. Of course, Appleseed does not care for some of those facts.
Also, the Appleseed project seems to have officially unleashed the hounds by sending its most ardent followers to "set the record straight" on as many gun forums as possible.

I am curious to see how their "pile-on" mentality and tactics will work in a broader forum like the NYT.
Some bloggers, who have pointed out some of the realities of Appleseed in the past, have already commented, too.
Appleseed released its official response to the article - detailed in the above link to the Firing Line.
