Mississippi governor talks guns, Hurricane Katrina and energy plans. Gov. Haley Barbour tells NRA members at the Celebration of American Values Leadership Forum in Phoenix, Arizona, about his experiences with gun culture while growing up in Mississippi, his more famous pro-Second Amendment remarks over the course of Hurricane Katrina and his thoughts on the future of American energy.
