I’m in Tampa, Florida this weekend for the 31st Annual Gun Rights Policy Conference, put on by The Second Amendment Foundation. Gov. Rick Scott is scheduled to kick things off at 8:15 am or so, and then there will be speeches and seminars by notable figures in the Second Amendment movement such as Alan Gottlieb, Alan Gura, and John Lott.
This year looks to be especially interesting, as Florida Open Carry, the NRA and others are on verge of enacting some new gun laws that are being blocked in the Florida Legislature, (by a “Republican”, no less). And having an conference like this in Florida, where the revolution in concealed carry began over 20 years ago, will help advance the cause of freedom and get our laws on-par with other, more gun-friendly states.
