A new survey conducted by PoliceOne Gun Policy & Law Enforcement between March 4 and March 13, 2013 shows an overwhelming majority of law enforcement officials are against new gun control measures. The survey shows huge support for concealed carry by law abiding citizens and approval for law enforcement leaders' across the country who have said they will not enforce more restrictive gun laws in their jurisdictions.
And those gun buyback programs being effective at reducing crime? Forget about it.
But what about teachers or administrators voluntarily training and arming themselves in schools to prevent or diminish mass shootings? The survey showed officials vastly support it.
Colorado, Connecticut and Maryland recently passed legislation limiting the capacity of ammunition magazines, something officials say won't help them.
I've written about this before. Chiefs of police from big, crime ridden cities are often cherry-picked by liberal politicians to testify before Congress about gun control, making it seem like more gun control is the only solution to reduce crime and that it is supported by the law enforcement community as a whole. The fact is, the opposite is true. Police chiefs are simply appointed politicians in the minority and don't represent the boots, the majority, working under them when it comes to reducing gun violence and implementing more gun control.
