Detroit Citizens Fight Back Against Violent Crime

As Detroit’s Police Chief Preaches Guns, Citizens Fight Back Against Violent Crime

By Rick Ector

February 25, 2014

Detroit, Michigan – -(Ammoland.com)- Shortly after being installed this past July, as the seventh (7th) person in the last eleven (11) years to assume the reins over the Detroit Police Department (DPD), Chief James Craig has wasted little time in sharing his controversial views about law-abiding citizens legally carrying concealed pistols.

In short, he has stunned the local and national media outlets with his surprisingly pro-gun stance and it appears – at this juncture – that local Detroit residents are taking heed of his words. Daring to defend themselves against violent predators.

Detroit Police Department Chief Craig’s Unconventional Stance on Guns

On December 19th of last year, Craig appeared on a local broadcast – the Paul W. Smith Show – and made the following statement;

“There’s a number of [Concealed Pistol License (CPL)] holders running around the city of Detroit. I think it acts as a deterrent. Good Americans with CPLs translates into crime reduction. I learned that real quick in the state of Maine.”

Then a couple of weeks later at a press conference held at DPD Headquarters, Craig was quoted as saying, “If more citizens were armed, criminals would think twice about attacking them.”

As a consequence of his aforementioned statements, Craig has made several national TV appearances to share his pro-carry views, which contradict those of other big city police chiefs across the country. One explanation for Craig’s ability to speak out is that he does not directly report to a big city mayor, which are usually anti-gun. Detroit is currently in the midst of a bankruptcy reorganization which has Craig reporting to a state of Michigan’s appointed Emergency Financial Manager.

Citizens Taking Up Arms Against Violent Predators Spikes

This past Monday night – Feb. 17th 2014 - a Detroit mom was forced to defend her family and her home against three armed intruders. The bad guys kicked in a door and rushed inside the residence, despite being told by the home owner that she was armed and was willing to defend her family. Incredulously, the attackers responded by telling her “No, you don’t” and came inside anyway. The mom discharged her Hi-Point Carbine Rifle and after a second round of fire the invaders quickly vacated the premises.

The entire incident was captured on video and instantly went viral nation-wide. The three suspects were quickly apprehended by Detroit Police. As a consequence, DPD Chief Craig discussed the case this past Friday on the “Nancy Grace Show” and has also been tentatively booked to speak about the incident on “Dateline NBC.” Nobody has ever accused Craig of being camera-shy.

In addition, two predators predators broke into a man’s home in the wee hours this past Saturday (Feb. 22nd 2014) morning. In this incident, one of the bad guys attempted to strike the home owner with a tire iron. Luckily, the home owner evaded injury long enough to shoot both invaders with his firearm. One suspect died at the scene via a gun shot would to the chest. The other assailant was hit in an undisclosed location but managed to evade capture.

Further still, yet another Detroit resident was forced to defend herself with her firearm on the same day. In this incident, a woman returned home and after parking her vehicle in her garage, she was suddenly approached by two men in her driveway. One of the men produced a firearm and pointed it at her head in an attempted carjacking. The victim was able to successfully draw and discharge her handgun. One of her attackers was killed at the scene and the accomplice is still at large.

Thusly, in just one week in the city of Detroit there were three armed citizen defenses which resulted in three arrests, no physical injuries to victims, and the deaths of two very violent and dangerous predators.

In all, it has been a great week for “Good Americans With Guns.” In addition, Chief Craig will continue to beat the drum for an armed local citizenry. With any luck, more Detroit residents will heed the call and become legally armed in Detroit.

This sounds a lot like what the Deacons of Justice did to combat the clan in the 60s.

Nothing like black men standing up fully armed to slow down a night rider of the Klan enough to make him think twice.

Viva La 2nd

Or what the Jews did in Warsaw, which delayed Nazi Troops from reinforcing troops in USSR which may have prevented the fall of Stalingrad and/or Moscow.

Gun nuts ARE the problem in Michigan. Like this guy, most gun nuts don't have a brain to begin with before they shoot themselves in the head......LOL

. Michigan Man Shoots Himself Dead While Showing Girlfriend That Guns Are Safe

A 36-year-old Michigan man was exercising his Second Amendment right when he shot and killed himself on Sunday. The fatal shooting occurred accidentally while the man attempted to demonstrate gun safety to his girlfriend while intoxicated.

According to Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe, the man had been drinking all day when he explained to his girlfriend that his three handguns were perfectly safe while unloaded. He then placed each gun against his head and pulled the trigger with only one minor issue– the third gun was loaded.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Three children, ages 7, 10, and 12, were in the home at the time, but luckily they weren’t hurt and they did not witness the shooting, McCabe said. According to authorities, they weren’t the man’s biological children.

Incidents like this may become quite familiar in Georgia if legislation passes allowing gun owners to bring firearms into bars. It’s becoming painfully clear that some people were not being metaphorical when they told us to pry their guns from their cold dead hands.

Bad example. Everybody knows that you don't handle firearms whilst drunk.

The 14th is what gave freed men the right to keep and bear arms as the SCOTUS in Dred Scot had limited the 2nd to whites.


The Detroit police chief is one many communities could use. Cops do little to stop crime; OTOH armed citizens are an effective deterrent.

US border agents seize Mexico-bound ammo
Associated Press
Posted on February 25, 2014 at 4:03 PM

McALLEN, Texas (AP) — The U.S. Border Patrol says its agents have seized more than 36,000 rounds of ammunition found in an abandoned sport utility vehicle near the Mexican border.

It issued a statement Tuesday saying agents in its Rio Grande Valley Sector made the rare find while acting on an anonymous tip to suspicious activity near the Rio Grande.

The Border Patrol says its agents were searching the Rio Grande City area, across from Camargo, Mexico, when they saw eight people swimming back to Mexico on Monday. The agents followed footprints north to the vehicle and found dozens of cardboard boxes containing ammunition for automatic rifles.

The Mexican government has been pressuring the United States to stop the trafficking of U.S. weapons, which it says has been fueling Mexico's bloody drug wars.
