Last night at the GRPC I went to a party hosted by Dead Patriot Films, who are working hard on "Assualted - Civil Rights Under Fire". Like all good projects, they need money. I will likely send them some after I get back to Arizona.

At the party, I met people that just clicked. What are the chances of three guys talking, and it comes out that they all have had some familial experience with Asperger's?

This morning, I was checking out of the hotel, and spot Mike Vanderboegh sitting in an armchair in the lobby. We greeted each other and he heads for the elevator, mentioning that he is going to the restaurant.

After I store my check in bag, I decide to join him, and who do I find in the elevator? One of my buddies from last night "Tex" Fuller, who is calling Mike on the phone to make sure that their breakfast rondevous is on schedule.

We three have breakfast and trade war stories and favorite Kipling and Heinlein works and quotes.

I got into a mini debate with Alan Korwin yesterday about natural law philosophy. It may extend into something larger. Alan and I have been good friends for 18 years.

The only real MSM presence yesterday was for Attorney Mark O'Mara. He gave an excellent 20 minute presentation. I remarked to Alan Korwin that I had given similar lectures on self defense law dozens of times in my CCW classes. I did not detect any easy "gotcha" words for the MSM to take out of context, but with 20 minutes of material, no one can be certain.

Emily Miller received a standing ovation yesterday, as she recounted how she has and will continue to shed light on the DC government's disgracefull disregard for the Constitution.

More panels and star presentations coming up in a few minutes, so I have to grab a seat.

I should have time to report more as I wait for the plane this afternoon.

Now that I am retired, I am able to attend more of these events. This one is my seventh. If you get a chance, go.

I heartily agree... attending one of the Gun Rights Policy Conference(s) will hook you into planning on attending the next. This one was my fifth.

I particularly liked the fact that we did not need to take a shuttle to get to the hotel. Kudos to the SAF crew for planning and executing a great conference.
