Legal gun ownership booming in Detroit.

(Via Instapundit) Good. Law-abiding citizens are precisely the people who we most need to be armed. Fortunately, the head cop in Detroit agrees with that common-sense observation.  Also note:

With a population of about 680,000, some 83 percent of which is African-American, Detroit’s growing embrace of Second Amendment rights has a racial component that is not unique to the city. According to a recent survey from Pew Research Center, 54 percent of African-American residents nationwide now see legal gun ownership as more likely to protect people than to put their safety at risk. That figure was up from 29 percent two years ago.

“If anyone should have the right or need to carry a gun, it should be the African-American community,” Philip Smith, founder of the National African American Gun Association, told Reuters.

Damned straight.

PS: Detroiters: please note which political party wants to keep you at the dubious mercy of armed and violent criminals, and which political party supports your right to defend yourself. Start voting accordingly.

  1. The Chief of Police wasn’t kidding when he proclaimed that they’re understaffed and undergeared. His guys aren’t there, so you better act accordingly.
