With the law seminar winding down, the NRA Annual Meeting nightlife is about to begin. Last night we were happy to meet up with Bob Cottrol, Steven Halbrook, John Frazer, Dave Kopel, and Dave Hardy for dinner. Top minds in this issue, and there was enlightened discussion about how to save the world.
Tonight we’ll be headed to a dinner for NRA volunteer coordinators. We’ve been coming to NRA Annual meeting every year since 2007, and Bitter has been an annual attendant longer than that. We’ve become experts at where to pick up free food and free drink.
Later tonight I’m meeting up with a long time friend who lives in the area, along with her partner. Today is her birthday, actually, so that makes the timing good to catch up. I can buy her some dinner.
One thing of note: security at this Annual Meeting is far tighter than in previous years. There is a law enforcement presence even inside the media room and in the conference rooms. Apparently the peace loving gun violence prevention advocates have been making threats and no one is taking any chances as to whether they are serious.
Tomorrow we’ll try to get down to the floor and get some pictures.
