2016 Gun Rights Policy Conference

Just a reminder from the Second Amendment Foundation that the Gun Rights Policy Conference will be held in less than two weeks.
BELLEVUE, WA – Virginia attorney Alan Gura, who won both the 2008 Heller case and the 2010 case of McDonald v. City of Chicago before the U.S. Supreme Court, is slated to be one of the highlight speakers later this month at the 31st annual Gun Rights Policy Conference at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Tampa, Fla., an event that will also feature several national gun rights leaders.

More than 75 speakers will participate in a wide range of panel discussions ranging from this fall’s elections to state legislative activities, working with the press, and other important Second Amendment issues including personal protection.

Also scheduled are Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), Mark Walters, host of the national radio show Armed American Radio; Tom Gresham, host of nationally-syndicated Gun Talk radio; nationally-recognized firearms instructor and self-defense authority Massad Ayoob, and Professor John Lott, author of The War on Guns and a Fox contributor. The full roster of speakers is not yet finalized.

In addition, SAF and CCRKBA leaders will be joined by representatives from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Gun Owners of America, the National Rifle Association,, the Washington Times, Washington Free Beacon and Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, who will also be speaking.

The weekend event typically attracts more than 700 gun owners, activists and experts from across the country. Attendance is free, and on-line registration is available at .

  1. If you are one that believes the Supreme Court is the final arbiter of what is lawful and constitutional, then you have believed a lie and a myth that Jefferson warned about. The States still retain their rights to this day to defy the federal judiciary, which has become an oligarcy. We just need strong statesmen as governors and legislatures to make that stand!

    In writing to William Jarvis, Jefferson said, "You seem . . . to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy."

    The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped."
