Then throw your newspaper or computer to the floor, return your .357-caliber Sig Sauer pistol to its velvet-lined box -- or if you've got a concealed carry permit, bring it with you -- and rush over to the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in Burlingame, which this weekend is hosting "Saving Freedom," the 2010 Gun Rights Policy Conference.

The 2010 conference is going to cover all the bases.
