Like you and me, only better

Clarion Ledger:

Jackson Mayor Frank Melton said Wednesday he cannot abide by the law if it restricts where he can carry his guns.

“I want to follow the law. What I’m telling you is that I can’t live like that,” he said. “I do have the right to protect myself.”

That might become a problem for the mayor.

Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood sent subpoenas on Wednesday to three Jackson television stations ordering them to turn over any videotapes showing Melton carrying weapons in public. The subpoenas say the videotapes are to be used in an “ongoing criminal investigation” and that the material can be presented to his office and ordered news executives to appear before a Hinds County grand jury on Aug. 7.

I’m all for you protecting yourself. And for anyone else protecting themselves. Surely, he feels the same way:

“I’m not another citizen. I am the mayor of Jackson,” Melton said. “It’s appropriate that I have a chance to protect myself.”

Fuck you and your office, Mayor.

Can notes this guy is one of Bloomberg’s anti-gun buddies too.

    That’s funny, last time I checked, very few mayors actually ever needed to defend themselves. Usually it’s us mere citizens.
