2015 Gun Rights Policy Conference

The 2015 Gun Rights Policy Conference opens next weekend, September 25-27, in Phoenx. The free event is sponsored by the Second Amendment Foundation and the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and has been for the past 30 years. You can still register to attend and I believe that they do allow in person registrations on Friday night and Saturday morning. The event is being held at the Sheraton Crescent Hotel.

My colleagues and I on the Polite Society Podcast will be livestreaming the event. We will also feature interviews with some of the presenters during conference breaks. You can watch the livestream either on our webpage or on our YouTube channel.

C-Span will be broadcasting the Sunday portion of the conference. I’m not sure which C-Span channel it will be on but I’m sure you can find it if you check their website later in the coming week.

The final agenda has been published and I have uploaded it to Google. A number of state level organizations will be participating including Grass Roots North Carolina, Georgia Carry, the Virginia Citizens Defense League, the Illinois State Rifle Association, Florida Carry, and many more. Cody Wilson of Defense Distributed will be speaking on Saturday about the impact of 3-D printing on the future of gun control. This is just a taste of what is being presented at GRPC.

If you check the agenda for Sunday morning, there is a panel on Using Media to Advance Gun Rights. It will feature people like Dave Workman of Gun Week, Charles Heller of Liberty Watch Radio, and someone else whose work you may have read a time or two.

If you can’t be there in person, I would encourage you to partake of our livestreaming of the event. It was a grassroots effort to put it together. I would thank the New Jersey Second Amendment Society, Ammoland.com, and those who contributed to our GoFundMe campaign for their monetary support in making this a reality.

C-Span To Feature The NRA’s National Firearms Museum On Sunday

C-Span will be running a two-part special on the NRA’s National Firearms Museum as part of their American Artifacts series.

From the NRA Blog:

C-SPAN3 is airing an inside look of the NRA National Firearms Museum this Sunday, March 9, at 6:00pm. Part of the American Artifacts series, this two-part tour starts with the Robert Petersen Gallery and runs through the entire museum collection.

“It’s a pleasure to welcome the cameras of C-SPAN to the National Firearms Museum,” said NRA Museums Director Jim Supica. “Sharing our exhibits with the general public is part of our mission and C-SPAN is a great venue for just that.”

American Artifacts airs on Sunday evenings at 6pm and 10pm with a live stream available at http://www.c-span.org/History/

The show is available online on the Monday following the broadcast. Either way you watch it, this sounds like a worthwhile show.

A teaser of what will be shown is below.
