    While liberals call for more gun control to stop violence, three-fourths (76%) of the nation’s police chiefs and sheriffs say armed citizens actually “reduce violent criminal activity,” the 28th Annual Survey by the National Association of Chiefs of Police shows.

    Asked, “Can qualified, law-abiding armed citizens help law enforcement reduce violent criminal activity?” while under one in five disagreed:

    Yes: 76.0%

    No: 18.6%

    N/A: 5.4%

    Fully 87.9% say “any vetted citizen” should “be able to purchase a firearm for sport or self-defense,” while only 8.9% said “No” and 3.2% replied “N/A.”

    What’s more, nearly one in five (18.0%) police departments actually help put guns in the hands of Americans by selling the firearms they confiscate.

    U.S. police departments also overwhelming “support nationwide recognition of state issued concealed weapon permits":

    Yes: 86.4%

    No: 10.6%

    N/A: 2.9%

    Meanwhile, headlines reveal how Pres. Obama has repeatedly used tragic mass murders to promote tighter gun control – as in the case of last week’s shooting in Dallas that left five police officers dead:

    Ironically, gun sales actually surged after Obama called for more gun control following the San Bernardino mass shooting, prompting a CNN Wire story to dub him “the greatest gun salesman in America.”
