Eighty-five percent of cops say gun control will have no effect on crime in America


(NaturalNews) Everyone from President Obama and Vice President Biden on
down who is currently pushing for new gun control legislation as a way
to "reduce gun violence" and lower crime overall is lying if they tell
you that most police officers agree with them that these new measures
will work.

According to PoliceOne, a law enforcement-centric website that just completed a survey of more than 15,000 verified police officers, a stunning 85 percent said a new federal ban on military look-alike semi-automatic rifles would have no effect on crime, and might even put their lives in danger.

In
addition, when asked if a federal ban on ammo magazines holding more
than 10 rounds would be effective at reducing violent crime, even more
said no: 96 percent.

In fact, according to the survey,
nearly three times as many former and active cops think that a federal
ban would even exacerbate violent crime instead of reducing it. And
twice as many think they will be less safe because of new gun control
provisions.

These results tend to deflate the "impact" Obama was
trying to achieve when he stood before Colorado cops in early April to
show support for left-wing legislators there who are considering new gun
control legislation, don't they?

Police officers know who does - and does not - commit the bulk of gun crimes

There's more from the survey:

--
Police generally support simple, straightforward solutions to problems.
When asked about the best course of action to prevent tragedies like
the recent Sandy Hook Elementary School and Aurora movie theater
shootings, nearly one-third said they backed "more permissive concealed
carry policies for civilians." Also, 86 percent said they believe a
legally armed citizen could have reduced casualties at both incidents
(remember, the anti-gunners want "gun-free zones").

-- An
astounding 91 percent said they support concealed carry by law-abiding
citizens who have been properly vetted and trained (just as cops
are before they are hired on nearly all departments, by the way), while
eight in 10 said they supported arming school teachers and school
officials with guns (taking away a statist gun-free bastion and making
it harder for the next drug-induced Adam Lanza to kill so many).

-- Six in 10 said if they were a police chief or county sheriff, they would refuse to enforce restrictive new laws.

-- 71 percent - nearly three in four - support law enforcement leaders who have publicly refused to support more restrictive gun laws within their jurisdiction (after all, the president himself picks and chooses which laws he will and will not support).

--
Respondents were more split on background checks, with 31 percent
agreeing that mental health background checks in all gun sales would
help reduce mass shootings, while 45 percent disagreed.

"Contrary
to what the mainstream media and certain politicians would have us
believe, police overwhelmingly favor an armed citizenry, would like to
see more guns in the hands of responsible people, and are skeptical of
any greater restrictions placed on gun purchase, ownership, or
accessibility." said Doug Wylie, editor of PoliceOne.

That is historically true. Our editor and founder, Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, reported exclusively for NaturalNews, relayed as much in a widely received December story [http://www.naturalnews.com].
He asked three questions to these sources: one ex-FBI agent, one
retired Sheriff's deputy, two active duty city police detectives, one
retired former police captain of a major U.S. city, two U.S. Army
veterans and one USMC veteran, discharged several years ago after two
tours in Afghanistan during which he sustained a severe personal injury.

Cops know what the solutions are - but partisan hacks in D.C. aren't listening

The most relevant of the three to this story was the third question: What is the solution to stopping future mass shootings?

Here are some of the answers:

The
retired Sheriff's deputy told me that the solution was to, "Arm the
teachers. Tear down the 'gun-free zone' signs and put weapons in the
hands of school personnel."

This opinion was seconded by one of
the active-duty police detectives, who said he had actually worked
several shootings, but never a mass shooting. "A mass shooting takes
time, often several minutes," he explained. "That's too fast for the
police to arrive on scene, but it's plenty of time for someone already
on location to pursue and engage the active shooter."

The former
police captain explained that the real problem with shootings in his
city was, "dirt-cheap handguns" also called "Saturday Night Specials."
As he explained, "People that spend $500 on a nice handgun are almost
never the problem when it comes to violent crime. It's the ones who pick up a junk gun for $50 on the street."

When
I asked him about a practical solution to reduce shootings, he said
that in his opinion, "Levying new taxes on all handguns like the tax
stamps on class three weapons" would likely prevent new guns from being
purchased by most violent criminals, but it wouldn't take guns out of
the hands of criminals who already have them.
