These things don’t set themselves up!
Lehigh Acres, FL -(AmmoLand.com)- Florida Carry is honored to serve as this year’s state host for the Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms’ 2016 Gun Rights Policy Conference in Tampa, September 23 – 25.
We need your help to make GRPC Tampa a success! Setup on Friday, Sept. 23rd at Noon.
From Noon until about 3:00 pm we need a team of volunteers to help lay out materials and do general set up. It’s a good deal of lifting books and moving things about. This will be “good old fashioned work” so bring a change of clothes if you plan to attend the reception afterward.
We also are looking for some members to help staff the Florida Carry Table each day of the conference.
Please email [email protected] to let us know you can help!
We need YOU to pitch in and help make the GRPC a Success in Tampa!

This is your once-a-year chance to network, get an insider look and plan pro-gun rights strategies for the coming year. Past GRPCs have outlined victory plans and made public the latest firearms trends. They allow you a first-hand chance to hear pro-2A movement leaders and make your voice heard. This year we’ll take a look at critical issues such as: city gun bans, “smart” guns, concealed carry, open carry, federal legislation, legal actions, gun show regulation, and state & local activity. The full roster of GRPC 2016 speakers has not yet been published.
Past speakers include: Alan M. Gottlieb, Joseph P. Tartaro, Eugene Volokh, Wayne LaPierre, Michael Reagan, Larry Elder, Rep.
