Co-sponsored by the Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, this year’s GRPC offers a weekend of panel discussions, special reports, the awards luncheon, and appearances by many of the leading names in the gun rights movement. This annual event brings together leaders and grassroots activists from across the country. It is the first time in three years the GRPC has been an in-person event. In 2020 and 2021, the conference became a virtual event, conducted online due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

“We’re anticipating a good turnout, with lots of opportunities for networking, one-on-one conversations, updates on various lawsuits in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, and the outlook for November and beyond,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb.

SAF and CCRKBA leaders will be joined by representatives from Gun Owners of America, the National Rifle Association, Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership, Firearms Policy Coalition and Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.

Expected attendance at this year’s event will be between 600 and 800 Second Amendment activists and experts from all corners of the country. Attendance is free, and information and online registration is available at www.saf.org/grpc.

“SAF and CCRKBA leaders will be joined by representatives from Gun Owners of America, the National Rifle Association, Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership, Firearms Policy Coalition and Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.” I’m not so ready to accept “Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership” as a pro-2A entity yet. Why would they be included except for the money they bring to the table? Including them is like inviting RINO’s to a legislative session and thinking you’re all on the same team. Not so fast. How have DRGO proven themselves as staunch 2A supporters? Have they lobbied the AMA to… Read more »

I wonder who, if anyone, will address those most ignored first 13 words of the 2nd amendment. You know, the words that use NECESSARY and SECURITY in them. https://courageouslion380.substack.com/p/those-forgotten-and-ignored-13-words-957

I find it interesting the double meaning of “free state” in the 2A. That a militia would be charged with keeping the State free, and thus it’s citizens, from tyranny and absolute domination by the federal standing army.

That Confederation Congress skipped making improvements to the Articles of Confederation and went right to drafting a whole new constitution. When it did not look like the states would not ratify the newly proposed Constitution, the ten amendments were added to get the states to vote to ratify… Read more »


My interpretation is largely the same as yours. As Wild Bill points out, there was plenty of discussion and I suspect that the meaning was perfectly clear to the world when it was written.


Sitting in the Westin as I type, one of my annual road trips. Great opportunity to network with 2A supporters from all around the country. Attending past years allowed me to meet 2A Patriots such as Dick Heller and the late Otis McDonald, Alan Gottlieb of SAF, etc. Well worth the effort. As the Price Is Right host Bob Barker famously said, “COME ON DOWN!!!!”
