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%

Despite this reality, watch Democrats make gun control one of the central pillars of their convention next week.

They’ve never dealt with facts on this issue before, why start now?
