A coalition of police chiefs stepped up their advocacy for extending firearm background checks to private sales, gun shows and online sales, saying the measure is needed to stave off mass shooting attacks.
A group calling itself the National Law Enforcement Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence called for the measure at the IACP Conference in Philadelphia.
"We are here because gun violence is destroying our communities, especially here in Philadelphia," said Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey at a Tuesday press conference.
The survey, which was conducted in early March 2013, received 15,000 responses from law enforcement professionals. It found that the overall attitude of law enforcement is strongly anti-gun legislation and pro-gun rights, with the belief that an armed citizenry is effective in stopping crime. Response percentages varied only slightly when analyzed by rank and department size. Among the results:

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

Demonstrating the opinion that the best way to combat gun crime is through harsher punishment, 91 percent said the use of a firearm while perpetrating a crime should lead to a stiff, mandatory sentence with no plea bargains. Likewise, 59 percent believe increasing punishment severity for unlicensed dealers would reduce crime

Respondents were more split on background checks, with 31 percent agreeing that mental health background checks in all gun sales would help reduce mass shootings, while 45 percent disagreed

71 percent support law enforcement leaders who have publicly refused to enforce more restrictive gun laws within their jurisdictions

82 percent believe gun buyback or turn-in programs are ineffective in reducing the level of gun violence

91 percent support the concealed carry of firearms by civilians who have not been convicted of a felony and/or have not been deemed psychologically incapable

Likewise, 80 percent feel that legally-armed citizens would likely have reduced the number of casualties in recent mass shooting incidents

38 percent believe the biggest cause of gun violence in the United States is the “decline in parenting and family values”. This was trailed by “overly lax parole and short sentencing standards” at 15 percent and “pop culture influence”(eg. violent movies and video games) at 14 percent

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.

..........And sadly as We The People go to the government agencies and find they have suddenly very different policies, policies that reflect the demonrat agenda of taking away rights and benefits, we will then understand to late that the American Government has been stolen from within. Like if I could appoint whoever and wherever I wanted a policy change, there would be less fracking, more environmental clean-up, and profits from certain programs financing some benefits for ALL Americans. With these greedy self-serving demonrats appointing people though, the exact opposite of those couple of examples will be a start.

These are urban police chief who owe their jobs to the social liberals, so of course they will support that socialist agenda. Oh, and the "on line" sales are another libtard myth. All on line sales like gunbroker go through an FFL with a background check. You should really do your homework before you post.

Exactly right! PoliceOne is a site that is frequented by real street cops not the social liberal sites with their political hacks that bareazz mentions. PoliceOne will get you the real stats that the libtards hate to see.

<quoted text>I've got some news that may come as a shock to you. Ya know this "new world" that you call "today" where one doesn't need a weapon for anything but "sport"? It doesn't exist, it's really just the old world, and none of the reasons for maintaining the ability to defend self and freedom have changed one iota. If you libtards would just use a little bit of independent thought instead of letting the leftist propaganda mill think for you, you'd readily see that the honest law abiding gun owner isn't the problem and never has been. The 2nd amendment is just as essential now as it was the day it was written. Direct your efforts toward removing the criminals/psychos from our society and then you may be successful in reducing the violence.
Your ignorance is spectacular but not surprising! There are lots of countries that use firearms for sport only as an example: the Scandinavian countries, Iceland, Switzerland etc. These countries keep their firearms at home and the ammo at the sooting range!

Which of course is utterly meaningless. For here in the United States We The People have a Constitutionally SECURED right to keep and bear arms. And this for our defense, especially against a tyrannical government.

The 15,000 respondents are likely street police officers. It would be impossible to do a random sample and come up with 15,000 cops. How did factcheck refute the poll? How does factcheck know that the respondents were not polices officers? More libtard bull sheet. Oh, does anyone really believe that criminals and crazies would submit to a background check. If you do, I have a bridge in Brooklyn for sale.

Out of 400,000.

Reading not your strong suit, an open web blog on a gun site that ask opinions with no controls for accuracy.

Not a poll, Sticky Gums.

Not even a poll among police officers.

This is where English kicks in, Shug.

This is a poll, Sweet Gums:

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/04/...

YOu will see at the bottom of a poll that is worth the paper it is printed on something like this:
The CNN poll was conducted by ORC International, from April 5-7, with 1,012 adults nationwide questioned by telephone. The survey's overall sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points.
Who was polled, when they were polled with a sampling error.

There is no "sampling error" with a survey because people go out of their way to take it and in this case can take the same survey repeatedly.

Come on bareazz. 15,000 out of 400.000 responded to the poll. Factcheck does not have any facts in it. It is merely their assumption. That's it, only libtard bullish!t. Sorry, but my English filters your social liberal trash.

A Internet survey/poll is a poll. Why doesn't the sampling error apply when a poll is in favor of the libtards? Your wrong again. Time to wheel yourself back under your rock.

That's not a scientific poll.. CNN only polls in largely urban demorat social liberal areas. Everyone knows that. If nearly 90 percent of the population wanted it, Congress would have acted. The true number came from constituents voicing their opinion against the libtard gun registration scheme disguised as background checks.
