Gun Rights Policy Conference

Dear Fellow Gun Rights Activist,

I would like to personally invite you to our 22nd annual Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC), which will be taking place October 5, 6, and 7, 2007 at the Drawbridge Inn and Convention Center in Ft. Mitchell, Kentucky (Cincinnati, Ohio area, next to the airport).

With the new battles over individual rights in the age of terrorism, attacks on our gun rights from the UN as well as a number of Second Amendment cases in the courts, the theme of Freedom's Future? is most important as we set the pro-gun rights agenda for the year to come.

This year GRPC will be action-packed. With over 50 speakers hand-picked from the leadership of the Gun Rights Movement, the topics to be presented promise to have an impact that will help direct the path of our cause for years to come. Scheduled speakers this year include: myself, Joe Tartaro, Wayne LaPierre, John Lott, Massad Ayoob, David Kopel, John Snyder, as well as staff from the Second Amendment Foundation, Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, National Rifle Association, National Shooting Sports Foundation,, and Gun Owners of America. A number of elected political leaders have been invited as well.

As in the past, the Second Amendment Foundation will not only pick up the tab for lunch and snacks, but will also provide more than $125 worth of vital pro-gun rights materials to each attendee.

In addition to the luncheon and free materials, you will have the opportunity to chat with the speakers at the two evening NSSF and NRA planned receptions.

This event is so important to our cause, that the SAF Board of Trustees has elected to help underwrite the entire cost of the event. Your cost to attend this event is absolutely free!

Because of the number of people who travel every year to attend this event, I have negotiated a special discount room rate for GRPC attendees. Reservations for the special discounted room rate of $69 per night can be made by calling 1-800-354-9793, and telling them you are planning on attending the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) sponsored by the Second Amendment Foundation.

If you have any questions, please call the SAF office at (425) 454-7012 to register. You can also register online at our GRPC Registration & Information Page, or send an e-mail to, or fax us at 425-451-3959.

Sincerely yours,

Alan M. Gottlieb

I'll have to google everyone except Wayne and Massad, and in reality should stop there but don't want to presume an inherent lameness in all because of said quality in a few. What Ayoob has to do with a "Gun Rights Policy" is beyond my ken, and it seems that our brothers in arms are happy with limiting such discussions to those that need no persuasion of it's importance. What we need are those with a far broader appeal, not the same-old, same-old hive-minders that ask for donations so that they may preach to an even larger choir. Which leads me to the "free" part. If we fly to Kentucky for 3 days and spend 70 bucks a stay in Kentucky, mind you...we'll get a free lunch while listening to pitches from over 50 speakers.

I'd have to see a politician or two and some popular Conservative authors on the docket before even thinking about girding the old loins to spend time in Kentucky. But like a good little gunner I pass along the news for you to make up your own mind.
