Hosted by the Second Amendment Foundation and the Citizens’ Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, the 2023 Gun Rights Policy Conference is history…but it’s history you can access. Our speakers included the best and the brightest from our side of this polarized debate, from the attorneys who bring the lawsuits to restore our rights to the people at the grassroots level winning State House victories all across the nation.
Approximately four hundred people attended live in Phoenix, with thousands more streaming it at home. The attendees were male and female, every color of the rainbow, straight and gay and trans. Yes, the society of the armed citizens is an inclusive one.
If you doubt that, catch the first half hour, the opening on Saturday morning. The next time someone tells you “Oh, those crazy gun nuts are all a bunch of anti-Semitic white supremacists,” you can answer, “Excuse me? I just watched the biggest gun owners’ civil rights conference in the country, and the first two speakers were a Jew and an Arab.”
