Police Chiefs Support Armed Pilots & Right to Carry Arms
The National Association of Chiefs of Police (NACOP) has released its 15th annual nationwide survey of chiefs of police and sheriffs, and the responses show, yet again, that our nation’s law enforcement officers support our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
The survey was sent to more than 22,000 command officers, and the responses showed that 72% support arming pilots, 93% believe that any law-abiding citizen should be able to purchase a firearm for sport or personal protection, and 68% support Right to Carry as a deterrent to violent crime.
Even though anti-gun organizations (and Gov. Taft) often use politically-motivated, anti-gun police bureaucrats to promote their gun-ban message, the fact is that the vast majority of law enforcement officers reject the extremist agenda of gun ban groups such as the Ohio Coalition Against Gun Violence.
