Detroit: Legal Gun Owners Cause Crime To Go Down


The naivete of the “thinking class” not grasping societal change will be remembered most during

this time in history long down the road. While many of the lecturing class get tv air time in denouncing guns, statistics is showing a different course.

The American Thinker did a post showing Detroit citizens taking actions in their own hands. You can the read full article here, but I’ll post some snippets:

Back in 2013, Detroit Polcie Chief James Craig suggested that, with a smaller police force and longer response times, responsible citizens might do well to arm themselves in order to protect their families and property.

The chief’s call to arms, which first came in December, 2013, has been answered by thousands of men and women tired of being victims and eager to reclaim their beleaguered city. In 2014, some new 1,169 handgun permits were issued, while 8,102 guns were registered with Detroit’s police department  – many to prior permit holders who bought new firearms. So for in 2015, nearly 500 permits have issued by the department and more than 5,000 guns have been registered.

“Home invasions have gone down,” he said. “A huge reason was that there was a huge spate of homeowners using their guns against intruders. More people have guns and it’s making burglars cautious.”
