BELLEVUE, WA –-(Ammoland.com)- More than 600 gun rights activists have already pre-registered for the 29th annual Gun Rights Policy Conference, which is being held Sept. 26-28 2014 at the Chicago O’Hare airport Hyatt Regency.
SAF Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb said this year’s GRPC will attract gun rights leaders and grassroots activists from across the country. It is being held in Chicago in recognition of repeated SAF court victories in Illinois, including the landmark Supreme Court 2010 ruling in McDonald v. City of Chicago, plus Ezell v. Chicago and Moore v. Madigan, the case that forced the Illinois Legislature to adopt a concealed carry statute, thus bringing the Prairie State in line with the rest of the nation.
“Our last foray in Chicago three years ago was a great success,” Gottlieb recalled, “and we have a full agenda that is certain to educate and perhaps even inspire activists from across the country.
“We take this annual conference around the nation,” he continued, “to areas where our rights might be threatened. Chicago has been ‘ground zero’ for gun some of our most important litigation and the legal precedents that we’ve been setting are now showing up as footnotes in rulings all the way to California.”
This year’s agenda is loaded with panel discussions about lawsuits and the courts, gun politics, legislative challenges and more. Experts from virtually all corners of the gun rights movement will be on hand, and the annual awards luncheon on Saturday promises to be a crowd pleaser.
“We anticipate an exciting, intense weekend of discussion and interaction,” Gottlieb stated. “As always, attendance at the GRPC is free. Registration is still open at www.saf.org .”
The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control.

This location is not very smart. We have no 2A rights in Chicago. Why in the world have it where we can’t protect ourselves?
