The May 1, 2018 monthly meeting of Eastside Republican Club will continue our focus from last month on fundamental civil and human rights with a discussion on Property Rights and Gun Rights, including how they are threatened in our current political climate.
Our speaker on property rights will be Glen Morgan, who is Executive Director of Citizens Alliance for Property Rights. He served as the Grassroots Director and the Property Rights Director at Freedom Foundation from 2011 until January 2015. He blogs at We The Governed, and enjoys creating videos documenting Big Government’s abuses of citizens – particularly on property rights issues. He is a frequent writer and speaker on property rights, the environmental movement, Big Government, and the importance of citizen activism. He enjoys exploring policy issues in local government and exposing government corruption and incompetence which impacts all of us.
Our speaker on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms will be Boyd Kneeland, immediate past president of Washington Arms Collectors, sponsor of the largest gun shows in the state. He is Projects Director at Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and previously served as Communications Director at Second Amendment Foundation.
