Sheriff Greg Phares was the keynote speaker at the event.
several pistols to show the audience. He also talked about gun safety and gun
control laws that are being talked about in Washington, D.C.
"I very passionately believe in the right of private

will spend months planning how to murder people."
Local Republican Woody Jenkins also weighed in on the gun

natural right to self defense," says Jenkins. We expect some pretty serious
proposals to come from the Obama administration."
The republicans say they will meet again next month to
discuss how to defeat the oncoming legislation that Vice President Joe Biden's
task force is charged with drawing up in the coming months.
