The 2019 Gun Rights Policy Conference starts this Friday in Phoenix, Arizona. The event is jointly sponsored by the Second Amendment Foundation and the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. This is the 34th annual event and may be the best attended yet. According to Alan Gottlieb, over 1,000 people have already pre-registered.
The 2019 GRPC is being held at the Sheraton Crescent Hotel located at 2620 W Dunlap Ave in Phoenix.
This will be the eighth GRPC that I’ve will have attended. Each and every one features a packed agenda. The speakers include both the well-known and the not-so-well known. Topics have ranged from what is going on in the states to international efforts at gun control.This year’s draft agenda has been released. I don’t remember the last time the agenda was so packed. Virtually every minute is filled on Saturday from 8am until 6pm. Then it starts back up again on Sunday at 8:50am and runs until 1pm.
I have been invited back for the fifth time to be a speaker on “Using New Media to Advance Gun Rights.” I feel kind of like Sally Field when she won the Oscar. I speak on Sunday.

Finally, at the conclusion of GRPC on Sunday, Forefront will provide a 90-minute training course for the LEARN/SAFER HOMES suicide prevention program. ” You will walk away from this practical and hands-on training feeling like you can play a proactive role in helping reduce and prevent firearms, drugs, and other methods of death by suicide.”
