The survey was promoted by PoliceOne exclusively to its 400,000 registered members, comprised of individually-verified law enforcement professionals. Only current, former or retired law enforcement personnel were eligible to participate in the survey.
•86 percent feel the currently proposed legislation would have no effect or a negative effect on improving officer safety
•Similarly, 92 percent feel that banning semi-automatic firearms, or “assault weapons,” would have no effect or a negative effect on reducing violent crime
•Likewise, 80 percent feel that legally-armed citizens would likely have reduced the number of casualties in recent mass shooting incidents
inb4 anti-gunners try to do damage control and say that the survey is "biased" or police officers don't really know what they're talking about.

62% wouldnt enforce them?
I'd like to believe that. I really would. But if I had a nickle for every time I've heard an LEO say something along the lines of "I know it's stupid but it's the law and that's my job" I'd have a hella lot of nickles.
They'll do whatever they have to do to ensure that sweet pension then when they retire they might take some token vocal position against all the nonsense they were enforcing for that prior 20-30 years.

I've been in one uniform or the other for over 32 years and held almost every position in law enforcement and I can tell you that restrictions on firearms will only have a negative effect on violent crime...
It really is all about the Feds wanting more power and control.. Absolutely nothing about our safety..
