Unfortunately, our vacation and financial situation probably will not allow me to attend this year, but if you have a bit more flexibility than I do in those regards, you should seriously consider attending the 2012 Gun Rights Policy Conference going on in Orlando, Florida, from 28SEP12 to 30SEP12.
This year we’ll take a look at critical issues such as: city gun bans, “smart” guns, concealed carry, federal legislation, BATFE policies, legal actions, gun show regulation, state and local activity. We’ll also review the 2010 elections, discuss the 2012 Presidential race and analyze Right to Keep and Bear Arms court cases.
The full roster of GRPC 2012 speakers has not yet been set. Past speakers include: Alan M. Gottlieb, Joseph P. Tartaro, Eugene Volokh, Bob Barr, Alan Gura, Wayne LaPierre, John Lott, Sandy Froman, Massad Ayoob, Tom Gresham, G. Gordon Liddy, Michael Reagan, Larry Elder, Ken Hamblin, and many others.
And if you need further enticement, apparently they will provide you with somewhere north of $150 worth of books and materials, free of charge, if you show up. Go forth, take notes for those of us who cannot make it, and have fun.
