Former big city police chief and gun control advocate, James Craig, now knows what gun-toting Conservatives have always known: armed citizens are a deterrent to criminals.
There is a reason you rarely hear of a shooting in a small city or rural areas. Criminals know that they will get their asses shot off.
Little towns and rural areas tend to contain people with “common sense, ” something that is very uncommon in urban indoctrination centers. And common sense says that people don’t like getting shot, especially criminals.
Criminals tend to gather where they can get prey the easiest, which are game trails and water holes. That is exactly what unarmed people in cities represent…prey.
At the press conference Thursday, Craig described his epiphany:
“Coming from California, where it takes an act of Congress to get a concealed weapon permit, I got to Maine, where they give out lots of [carrying concealed weapon permits, or CCWs], and I had a stack of CCW permits I was denying; that was my orientation,” he said.
“I changed my orientation real quick. Maine is one of the safest places in America. Clearly, suspects knew that good Americans were armed.”
