Mark your calendar for the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) the last weekend of September. The event runs Sept. 24 to Sept. 26, and will be held in San Francisco. (Yes, for gun owners’ civil rights activists, that’s a little like having a freedom conference in Teheran. The “behind enemy lines” theme will continue next year, when the conference is likely to take place in Chicago.)
You’ll meet hundreds of like-minded people, and representatives of virtually all the legitimate pro-gun organizations, including the vitally important state-level grassroots groups that get so much of the real work done in the state legislatures, and winning hearts and minds community by community.
It’s an extremely cost-effective experience. Travel and lodging and such are on you, but attendance is FREE OF CHARGE! Leave plenty of empty space in your luggage, because you’ll be issued lots of useful literature: professional journals written by learned scholars, thoroughly researched books, lots of ammunition to use in future debates when arguing for your rights. Hundreds of dollars worth of solidly documented research – ALL FREE OF CHARGE.
The event comes to you courtesy of the Second Amendment Foundation, and is the brainchild of Alan Gottlieb and Joe Tartaro. It was Second Amendment Foundation that brought you the twin civil rights SCOTUS decisions of the 21st Century, Heller v. District of Columbia and McDonald v. City of Chicago, that have done so much to quantify and solidify our Constitutional rights. Expect to meet McDonald and his co-plaintiffs, and Heller, and Alan Gura, the brilliant young attorney who argued both of those cases to their successful, landmark conclusions.
In the interest of total disclosure, I can say proudly that I’ve served on the Second Amendment Foundation’s board of trustees for more than a score of years. I hope to meet you there. More info can be found HERE.
