In March, PoliceOne -- I've heard it's arguably the premier law enforcement print and on-line magazine for law enforcement professionals -- conducted the most comprehensive survey ever of American law enforcement officers� opinions on gun control. More than 15,000 verified law enforcement professionals took part in the 28 question survey.

Here's a few results

4. What effect do you think the White House's current proposed legislation would have on officer safety?

Response: 60.6% of the officers responded -- no effect, and 24.6% responded that it would have a negative effect on their safety. Only 9.6% of the officers felt it would have a positive effect.

OUCH! Not exactly what we're hearing from our legislators or the media, is it?

How about this one?

5. What effect do you think a federal ban on manufacture and sale of "assault weapons" would have on reducing violent crime?

Response: 71% of the officers said -- no effect and 20.5% responded that it would have a negative effect. Again, only 7.6% responded -- it would have a positive effect.

Double OUCH! This better not get out.

But wait! There's more....

6. Do you think a federal ban on manufacture and sale of ammunition magazines that hold more than ten rounds would reduce violent crime?

Response: 96.7% responded that it would not reduce crime, and a paltry 2.7% responded it would reduce violent crime.

Well, THAT will prevent more Newtown massacres!

7. Do you think a federal law prohibiting private, non-dealer transfers of firearms between individuals would reduce violent crime?

Response: 79.7% responded it would not, while a whopping 11.5% responded that it would.

19. Do you support the concealed carry of firearms by citizens who have not been convicted of a felony and/or not been deemed psychologically/medically incapable?

Response: 91.3% in favor, 4.1% opposed.


Don't rely on the mainstream media for information. Take the time to see for yourselves what the police officers think.

But what do LEO's know about violent crime you need to pool the actors and politicians they know all about crime. Or better yet lets just ask the gang bannger if we ban all gun do they promise to give all there guns up I am sure they will say yes and they never lie.
