BRADY GUN CONTROL CAMPAIGN ALL WET SAY NATION’S TOP COPS

The very foundations of the gun control movement were rocked today by the results of a survey taken by the National Association of Chiefs of Police (NACOP). In a nutshell, the survey shows that the nation’s top law enforcement officers believe that average citizens can be trusted to responsibly own firearms; that criminals ignore gun control laws; and that concealed carry laws reduce crime.

These revelations come as a stark contrast to gun control movement propaganda that asserts that police officials feel that our streets would be safer if law-abiding citizens were disarmed.

Specifically, the survey revealed that 93% of chiefs and sheriffs felt that citizens should be able to purchase firearms for sport and self defense; 73% opposed so-called “one gun a month” laws; 96% believed that criminals ignore gun control laws and; 63% supported laws that allow citizens to carry defensive firearms as a means to control crime.

“These survey results are important and timely for the law-abiding Illinois firearm owner,” said ISRA Executive Director Richard Pearson. “The General Assembly is currently considering HB2414 which would ban most of the guns owned by law-abiding citizens in Illinois. The legislature is also considering legislation that would shut down most of the lawful gun shops in the state. The supposed justification for these two bills is that they would result in a safer society. Well, based on the chiefs’ survey, it would appear that the gun control movement is standing all alone on that assertion.”

“I hope that the Illinois General Assembly is paying close attention to what our top cops have to say,” continued Pearson. “It’s time for the legislature to stop trying to find ways to harass the law-abiding gun owner and start finding ways to keep criminals in jail and off our streets.

Glad they came out with this. I mean, we all know the Brady Bunch is full of it, but a lot of people buy into them. However, I would be highly surprised if this made any news broadcast.

You know, if it is reported, it will be misinterpreted by every liberal media organization. Liberals will try to discredit the results and say it is mere propaganda by the GUN-NUTs.

One day, hopefully, the idiots that propose such legislation like the crap stated will finally be pulled out of the dung in which their heads permanently reside.

Yet only 63% think we peons should be able to 'carry defensive firearms as a means to control crime".

That would mean 37% or nearly 40% don't think we can be trusted to protect ourselves. Job security?

This won't change anything. They will still fill their literature with the same old statements from the same old flunkies that they have been using for years.

The actual question was: "Will a national concealed handgun permit reduce rates of violent crime as recent studies in some states have already reflected?"

So it's not necessarily that they want to allow or disallow it, it's just whether or not they think it would be effective. Still disappointing to see such a low number though. I wonder what the results would be if they polled LEO other than chiefs and sheriffs.

I suggest that the word "owned" in the thread be changed to "pwned" to better reflect the true meaning of the headline...

The Brady camp. no longer cares for safety. They got a taste of the big bucks. GREED is the front runner in their movement now. It's all about keeping the money rolling in.

Gee, common sense. Too bad it will never see the light of a major broadcast company telecaster.
