Detroit’s police chief is interviewed in the most recent issue of “America’s First Freedom” — an NRA magazine — voicing his support for the right to bear arms.
The article titled, “A Show of Courage In Detroit,” comes following at least five fatal shootings in two months involving homeowners protecting themselves from intruders. The sub-headline reads, “Motor City Police Chief James Craig Encourages Citizens to Arm Themselves.”
Craig, whose photo appears on the cover, says being featured in the magazine does not mean he advocates violence; he just strongly believes in the right to protect one’s self.
“We’re talking about people who are faced with an imminent threat or great bodily injury. That’s what we’re talking about here. So I stand by that, I support it,” ” Craig told WWJ Newsradio 950′s Jackie Paige in a live interview on Monday.
