Detroit Police Chief James Craig is getting national attention for encouraging residents to arm themselves for their own self-defense.

Craig is featured on the cover of the NRA magazine America’s 1st Freedom. In the cover story, the chief insists he's not responsible for a recent slew of self-defense shootings. Since January, there have been seven incidents of homeowners shooting intruders. Six resulted in death.

Craig says the shooting began to increase before he started the job in 2013. "More and more Detroiters are getting sick of the violence," Craig says. "I know of no other place where I've seen this number of justifiable homicides."

Craig adds, "We're not advocating violence. We're advocates of not being victims."
