Spoiler Alert – Law Enforcement Does Not Support Gun Control

Yeah huge shocker that they don’t want to be burdened with all the problems when ordinary citizens could take care of some of them.

Police-One-Law-Enforcement-Survey

Make sure you head over to PoliceOne to check out all the survey questions and the results.  Some of them might surprise you, but on the other hand if you know police officers chances are you won’t be surprised.

You can hit up the PDF with the full questions and results of the survey – HERE

I like the idea of the survey a lot, but I really wish that PoliceOne would have spent the time to get it out to more than 15,000 officers.  Sure that sounds like a decent number at first though, but in reality the NYPD alone has more than double that.  Yea I know it says they sent it to all 400,000 of their verified LEO forum members, so that’s pretty said only 15,000 cared enough to respond.  They should have offered an incentive like a free coffee / donut to drive response rates up *zing*.  I’m kidding of course… that job has to be the most thankless one on the planet, and I have a lot of respect for everyone that does it properly.

Thoughts?

Barry loves use kids and cops as political props. He’s not the first, but he uses the tactic more than any president I’ve ever seen. He’s always got some police chiefs available from large, corrupt cities who will of course back total disarmament. The larger the department, the more corrupt and statist-quo the police chief. Every time.

It’s good to see that someone gave the cops from anywhere USA a voice; no doubt this will be suppressed.

Interesting questions but the survey method is really bad. The sample size, as the author points out, is small but that isn’t the biggest concern by far.
1. It disproportionately reflects small to medium medium size departments
2. It only was of members of a specific forum that checked a specific email
3. It says it only includes verified police professionals but includes non-LEOs?
4. They don’t give more details about methodology…

I would say these numbers are pretty close for a small sample-size. In my mid-size Department, I’d say the numbers might be closer to 90/10. For the most part, I believe most LE are in favor of CCW in their jurisdictions.

A sane and trained armed person responding to a threat to life, can help to reduce crime-rates.

Mike, the survey was offered to the 400,000 members of policeone, only 15k responded. But still, it’s much more accurate a survey than that run by ANY politician, especially from the WH who say LE clearly want this legislation in overwhelming numbers. lol
