On Monday afternoon, Feb. 11, I had the honor of attending Congressman Buck McKeon's 2nd Amendment Conference at Valencia's Salt Creek Restaurant.
Anyone who is following the gun debate quickly sees that both sides have some reasonable positions, but what also seems clear and perhaps most significant is that we have some cowardly congressmen serving in Washington.
