Bobby Bright: A politician after my own heart�::� Bright stands behind comments on guns How many politicos will stand up - to the media - and say people need to buy guns, and use them for self-defense?
In my opinion, people need to buy a weapon, buy a gun, educate themselves on how to use that gun and they need to use that weapon to protect themselves from the criminal element out there.

I will not back away from that concept. It is a sensitive issue. It is simply me as the mayor wanting and caring enough about our citizens here to tell them this may be the best way they can help us protect themselves.
He has refused to retract that statement.

He has of course been accused of promoting vigilante justice. (The media collectively need to invest in a good dictionary. Self-defense is not vigilante justice.) Maybe he will move beyond being mayor of Montgomery. [h/t NRA-ILA]
