Detroit Police Chief Goes All Common Sense on Guns, Puts Thugs on Notice

Posted on March 7, 2014 by jcscuba | 4 Comments

Detroit’s Police Chief, James Craig, has the respect of the officers he commands as well as the law-abiding citizens of Detroit, while Dianne Feinstein has the respect of her fellow Marxists and little more.

If Detroit Police Chief who has served in policed departments around the country and come to this conclusion, what’s wrong with the anti Second Amendment anti-gun zealots like Diane Feinstein and her Marxist Ilk? 

Feinstein has never had a clue about guns and never will. Fortunately she’s too old to serve another term, and when Republicans take the Senate in 2014 this old blister will likely hang up her thong.  Now that’s a horrible visual. HA!

Detroit Police Chief James Craig shared plenty of common sense wisdom on guns in a recent interview with WDIV-TV. Even though plenty of anti-gun city officials are on record urging residents to call the police rather than use a firearm, Craig knows that is not always a viable option.

Craig also said he wants criminals in Detroit to know they shouldn’t just be afraid of the police — they should also be afraid of responsible gun owners who are prepared to defend themselves and their homes.

“A lot of good Detroiters are fed up,” Craig said. “The message should be that, you know, people are going to protect themselves.”

The police chief said Detroit residents have been dealing with an epidemic of violence for some time and expressed approval of individuals who are exercising their Second Amendment rights to fight back against criminals.

Just this week, a female concealed carry permit holder shot and killed a would-be car-jacker and another homeowner fatally shot a 17-year-old trying to break into his home.

“If you are confronted with an immediate threat to your safety, you’re not going to have time to dial 911,” Craig said. “It becomes an issue of, the threat is here, I have to respond to the threat.”

He also advised gun owners to practice common sense and understand that a person should never chase a suspect down and shoot them or prematurely shoot every time someone knocks on the door.

“Suspects in Detroit need to worry about a couple of things,” Craig continued. “They’ve got to worry about a police department that is going to aggressively find you when you commit and act of violence. And you got to also worry about the good Detroiters who are not going to put up with the violence.”

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
