Justifiable homicide in the city shot up 79 percent in 2011 from the previous year, as citizens in the long-suffering city armed themselves and took matters into their own hands. The local rate of self-defense killings now stands 2,200 percent above the national average. Residents, unable to rely on a dwindling police force to keep them safe, are fighting back against the criminal scourge on their own. And they’re offering no apologies.

“We got to have a little Old West up here in Detroit. That’s what it’s gonna take,” Detroit resident Julia Brown told The Daily.

The last time Brown, 73, called the Detroit police, they didn’t show up until the next day. So she applied for a permit to carry a handgun and says she’s prepared to use it against the young thugs who have taken over her neighborhood, burglarizing entire blocks, opening fire at will and terrorizing the elderly with impunity.

“I don’t intend to be one of their victims,” said Brown, who has lived in Detroit since the late 1950s. “I’m planning on taking one out.”

    Sad very sad, or is it cool that we are not taking it anymore and will defend out right to carry any firearm to protect our way of living. Is it sad that we have to arm ourselves to protect ourselves? I am very progun and believe a armed society is a polite society. Then again if I was living in a area that was riddled with crime I would move. Not for being scared but for my own self awareness because like these people I would take out ALL GANG’S that are causing the killings/robberies/rape/! Then I would be no better than them. I come from the Old School to fight evil you must become evil to a certain extent. We need change and not by our officals right now but real change. I have a CCW and carry because I want too, not because I have too. I say it is sad that we the people have to defend our own freedoms in our own neighborhoods…
