Now That's A Police Chief Who Gets It!

Detroit's Police Chief is not afraid to counter conventional "wisdom" when it clashes with reality: The Detroit News: Police Chief Craig: Armed Detroiters cut terror risk

Yes, the Chief actually pointed out that having armed civilians instead of helpless innocents can help thwart terrorist attacks.

There's the usual PSH hand-waving and pearl clutching from Josh Horowitz, director of Washington, D.C.-based Coalition to Stop Gun Violence with the usual canard that merely having a gun puts you in danger.

Impressively, aside form that aside, the article was favorable to the Chief's comments and included quotes from other experts supporting such a statement.

Certainly Detroit has undergone a sea-change in attitude towards lawful firearms since Chief Craig has come to town, and we're all the better for it.
