    SOMEBODY FINALLY "GETS IT"! Want crime to drop? Start carrying..

    The following is excerpts from an online news article, regarding the attitude of Detroit, Michigan's Police Chief, James Craig.
    If more citizens were armed, criminals would think twice about attacking them, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said Thursday. Urban police chiefs are typically in favor of gun control or reluctant to discuss the issue, but Craig on Thursday was candid about how he’s changed his mind

    “When we look at the good community members who have concealed weapons permits, the likelihood they’ll shoot is based on a lack of confidence in this Police Department,” Craig said at a press conference at police headquarters, adding that he thinks more Detroit citizens feel safer, thanks in part to a 7 percent drop in violent crime in 2013.
    Craig said he started believing that legal gun owners can deter crime when he became police chief in Portland, Maine, in 2009. “Coming from California (Craig was on the Los Angeles police force for 28 years), where it takes an act of Congress to get a concealed weapon permit, I got to Maine, where they give out lots of CCWs (carrying concealed weapon permits), and I had a stack of CCW permits I was denying; that was my orientation. I changed my orientation real quick. Maine is one of the safest places in America. Clearly, suspects knew that good Americans were armed.”

    If ALL the heads of LEAs felt this way, the quality of life... and the reverence thereto, would increase substantially! But then here, I'm "preaching to the choir". Pax...
    Glocks ROCK!

    And if all citizens were armed and could carry anytime w/o a permission slip then many stupid laws would not be passed either. Who are the bigger crooks ~ the legislatures or some idiot shoplifter?

    You're both right.
    The 1st protects the 2nd, and the 2nd protects the 1st. GET THIS OR LOSE IT ALLl: 27-2=0. Our 2A is THE bellwether, and ain't none finer: Islamic Reality. Our Founding Fathers on Church and State. PC=ZERO.
