Real cops rip gun control; professionals want responsible Americans armed

Written By: Bob - Apr• 08•13

PoliceOne.com has done poll of 15,000 law enforcement officers, and they have ripped the sort of gun control laws advocated by our Marxist President to shreds:

  • 91% say a ban on semi-automatic firearms falsely named “assault weapons” will have “no effect or a negative effect in reducing violent crime.”
  • “More than 91 percent of respondents support the concealed carry of firearms by civilians who have not been convicted of a felony and/or not been deemed psychologically/medically incapable.”
  • “A full 86 percent feel that casualties would have been reduced or avoided in recent tragedies like Newtown and Aurora if a legally-armed citizen was present (casualties reduced: 80 percent; avoided altogether: 60 percent).”
  • “More than 81 percent of respondents were in favor of arming teachers and school administrators if they were properly trained and vetted or at least proficient.”

Here are your answers from the cops on the street, folks: armed Americans save lives.

Force your politicians to listen to them.

It’s common sense laws that they claim to support, after all.

    This poll doesn’t matter. The Constitution doesn’t matter. These anti freedom, Progressive/Marxist idiot in government are going to keep pushing and pushing until we are backed into a corner. I keep saying it, battle lines are being drawn. Keep your powder dry fellas.

    No.

    I’m telling every Pol I can find to vote for every statist wet-dream there is.

    The faster people realize what’s going on, the faster we’ll get it cleaned up.

    The ones the politicians call “first responders” know who the REAL first responders are.

    These cops will enforce any law the politicians pass down. They are already doing it, why do you expect them to change now?
    The only good cop is a ……wait, there are no good cops.

      I strongly disagree sir. “Cops” are not some monolithic amorphous blob who all participate in group think.

      Like our military they are individuals who are swayed by their morals, ethics, and personal sense of honor.

      There are bad cops, good cops, honest & dishonest cops.

      We, the people, need to encourage and stand behind the cops who defend the Constitution and keep to their oath.
