Survey: Where Does Law Enforcement Stand on Gun Control?

PoliceOne.com, a news and resource website for law enforcement officers, recently released the results of a broad gun control survey given to more than 15,000 verified law enforcement professionals. In the survey, officers answered just under 30 questions that sought their perspectives on a number of gun control issues, including the effects that any federal bans would have on crime. According to the site, 70 percent of the officers who participated in the survey were “field level law enforcers” across a number of agencies and departments. Roughly 80 percent of the survey-takers were active officers while the remaining 20 percent were retired.

Here are some of the results:

71% of the polled officers believe that a federal ban on semi-automatic firearms would have no effect on reducing violent crime.
85% of officers say that passage of the White House’s proposed legislation will have no or negative impact on officer safety.
86.2% of officers believe that casualties resulting from an active shooter incident would have been reduced if armed citizens were present.
76.6% of officers believe that school teachers and administrators should be allowed to carry firearms in the course of their jobs, provided they are trained and qualified.
