Gun rights legends abound at SAF’s Gun Rights Policy Conference

by Lee Williams

  • Thousands of people are alive today because of the self-defense tactics and techniques developed and taught by Massad Ayoob
  • Millions of people have been exposed to the shooting sports for more than 50 years thanks to Tom Gresham, the innovator of all outdoor media – print, electronic and online.
  • Even former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun propaganda factory known as “The Trace” describes Dr. John R. Lott Jr. as “the empirical backbone for the gun-rights movement.” 
  • And Dean Weingarten, whose first article was published in the American Rifleman in 1980, has forgotten more about gun writing than most folks will ever know. 

Ayoob, Gresham, Lott and Weingarten are just a handful of the more than 70 incredible speakers who will take the stage at the 38th Annual Gun Rights Policy Conference, which will be held September 22nd – September 24th, 2023, in Phoenix, AZ. 

This year’s theme is “Road to Liberty!” A list of speakers and their biographies can be seen here.
