Chicago, IL –-( The 29th annual Gun Rights Policy Conference Sept. 26, 27, and 28 2014, in Chicago features an expansive lineup of key Second Amendment activists and leaders like Alan Gottlieb, Joe Tartaro, Alan Gura, Larry Pratt, John Fund, John Lott, Dave Kopel, and Joe Tartaro.

You’ll get the inside scoop from the leaders in the gun rights movement, then what?
