Encouraging responsible, law-abiding Americans to carry concealed firearms for self-defense has the potential to reduce crime.
This is a widely held belief by the gun community. It is also one that is endorsed by Detroit Police Chief James Craig.
Last month, in an appearance on a local radio show, The Paul W. Smith Show on WJR, Craig voiced his support for allowing responsible citizens to carry.
Theres a number of CPL holders running around the city of Detroit. I think it acts as a deterrent, explained Craig, who appeared on the show on Dec. 19. Good Americans with CPLs translates into crime reduction. I learned that real quick in the state of Maine.

He’s a man in admitted transition.
This dude needs to knock some sense into his peers in places like Chicago and Milwaukee.
Good. A very LIEberal, anti columnist here wrote an editorial on Sunday admitting the laws passed in the wake of Newtown are just about useless. I’m still in shock.
A good indication that we cannot give up on a full court press for our God-given rights.
I hope he’s ready for the backlash.
He’s changing citizen attitudes toward police too. He’s got police out raiding crack houses, re instituted stop and frisk, ended the idiotic virtual precinct crap, cutting the mayor’s security detail from 20 officers to 6.

Kwame needed that size detail to avoid being served...
I remember seeing some video of Kwame playing president with his 7 car motorcade and cops stopping traffic.
Okay, you have a bunch of citizens who have passed a background check and have passed a gun safety course. Why would you think there is a problem?
A 12gu. isn’t exactly a conceal carry....but it sure gets the job done......all elderly should be so protected....*F* their FirstAlert button. ;D
You can open carry in Detroit. This summer a friend introduced me to an elderly Detroiter. When we found him he was carrying a bag of groceries and had an AR-15 slung across his back.
Police turned down the street were we were a slowed way down to creep by. Funny thing is the fact that they were more interested in why my white ass was in that neck of the woods than they were the gun.
Better than a defenestration.
“...Craig voiced his support for allowing responsible citizens to carry.”
He still needs to get past this idea that citizens are “allowed” to carry. It’s a right, dammit! You don’t allow or disallow something that’s a right.
Precisely, you are spot on!
Cracker in the hood is only there for one thing.....to score....some tail or substance[s].
Must have been a sight!
“Cracker in the hood is only there for one thing.....to score....some tail or substance”
Yep, and they are taking a big chance walking out of there alive. Kind of like playing Russian Roulette.
CPL is an acronym for???
*Concealed Pistol License*...it may be a Michiganian thang.
