    Read the poll, Mr. President - LEOs OVERWHELMINGLY OPPOSE proposed GC laws...

    Some time back, Mr. President, you stood in front of the cameras with a few police chiefs and told us that law enforcement overwhelmingly backs gun control. A recent poll of more than 15,000 law enforcement officers, over 70% of which were officers, not elected police chiefs, however, tells a far different story.

    Among the results:

    * 95% of respondents said that limiting magazines to 10 rounds would not reduce violent crime.

    * 90% oppose banning certain semi-automatic firearms.

    *85% said that proposed federal gun control legislation would have no effect on reducing crime, or would even INCREASE crime.

    * NEARLY 90% SAID THAT THE PRESENCE OF LEGALLY-ARMED CITIZENS AT OUR RECENT MASS SHOOTING INCIDENTS WOULD HAVE EITHER REDUCED OR COMPLETELY PREVENTED CASUALTIES. This result, by the way, mirrors a statement issued last year by the border patrol officer's union:

    "06-20-12 In another nauseating series of "Virtual Learning Center" brainwashing courses that Border Patrol agents are forced to sit behind a computer for hours and endure, we are now taught in an "Active Shooter" course that if we encounter a shooter in a public place we are to "run away" and "hide". If we are cornered by such a shooter we are to (only as a last resort) become "aggressive" and "throw things" at him or her. We are then advised to "call law enforcement" and wait for their arrival (presumably, while more innocent victims are slaughtered). Shooting incidents cited in the course are Columbine, the Giffords shooting and the Virginia Tech shooting.

    These types of mandatory brainwashing courses and the idiocy that accompanies them are simply stunning when they are force-fed to law enforcement officers. Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that any three of the above shootings would have been stopped cold by an off-duty law enforcement officer or a law abiding citizen with a gun. The Fort Hood shooting would have been stopped cold by someone with a gun as well. The shooters in these situations depend on unarmed and scared victims. It gives them the power they seek. We could go on and on with examples of shootings that could have been stopped by someone with a firearm…"
    * More than 80% favor arming school employees.

    The overall conclusion of the survey?

    "Quite clearly, the majority of officers polled oppose the theories brought forth by gun-control advocates who claim that proposed restrictions on weapon capabilities and production would reduce crime.

    In fact, many officers responding to this survey seem to feel that those controls will negatively affect their ability to fight violent criminals.

    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.

    The officers patrolling America’s streets have a deeply-vested interest — and perhaps the most relevant interest — in making sure that decisions related to controlling, monitoring, restricting, as well as supporting and/or prohibiting an armed populace are wise and effective. With this survey, their voice has been heard."

    So contrary to your public statement, law enforcement does not back your proposals. And the latest polls reveal that the majority of Americans don't, either.

    It is time to cease your attacks on our Second Amendment rights. The role of government in this and other issues was clearly delineated in the 1875 Supreme Court Case, United States v. Cruikshank:

    "With regard to those acknowledged rights and privileges of the citizen, which form a part of his political inheritance derived from the mother country, and which were challenged and vindicated by centuries of stubborn resistance to arbitrary power, they belong to him as his birthright, and it is the duty of the particular state of which he is a citizen to protect and enforce them, and to do naught to deprive him of their full enjoyment. When any of these rights and privileges are secured in the constitution of the United States only by a declaration that the state or the United States shall not violate or abridge them, IT IS AT ONCE UNDERSTOOD THAT THEY ARE NOT CREATED OR CONFERRED BY THE CONSTITUTION, BUT THAT THE CONSTITUTION ONLY GUARANTIES THAT THEY SHALL NOT BE IMPAIRED BY THE STATE, OR THE UNITED STATES, AS THE CASE MAY BE."

    Gun control is NOT about guns, it's about CONTROL.

    The trouble is the bastards in power don't give a damn about facts, in fact they have a great amount of disdane for facts.

    It's not about the guns, it is about the control, and these bastards will not stop until they are voted out of office, impeached, or imprisoned for treason.

    The libs will not stop until they have every gun. That will included ALL toy guns and guns in video games. Then they will come after the bow and arrow, knives, sling shots and rubber band and paper clips.
