A surprising statement on gun violence from the police chief of one of America's most violent cities.
Detroit's top cop James Craig says he thinks more people need guns to keep safe.
"There’s a number of [concealed pistol license, or CPL] holders running around the city of Detroit. I think it's acting as a deterrent. Good Americans with CPLs translates into crime reduction, too," Craig said on WJR Radio's "The Paul W. Smith Show."
So would Detroit and other violence-plagued cities really benefit from more guns?
