SAN BERNARDINO -- City Attorney James F. Penman used his comment period at Monday's City Council meeting to defend an earlier comment that residents worried about crime should "lock your doors and load your guns," saying similar advice has proven correct before.
Penman clarified that he wasn't speaking to people who aren't comfortable with firearms or have children -- from teens to toddlers -- in the home, and he said he opposed vigilantism.
