Under fire, Detroit police chief won’t back down on encouraging citizens to own guns « Hot Air: "The significance of Craig speaking out isn’t that he might catalyze a change to the law but that he’s educating the public on a right they already possess. Open carry is already legal in Michigan, but not all Detroit residents know that. People who might otherwise might want to buy a gun for home protection may assume, incorrectly, that Detroit controls guns as tightly as New York, Chicago, and other big cities do. When you’ve got the chief of police on TV encouraging people to consider it, though, that perception’s bound to change. And so all eyes in the gun-control debate turn to the D: Expect to see either an NRA ad or a Mike Bloomberg ad next year about the murder rate there, depending upon which way it goes."
