76% of Police Chiefs Say Armed Citizens Are Doing This

Recommended Posts



According to the 28th Annual Survey by the National Association of Chiefs of Police, an overwhelming percentage of our nation’s police chiefs and sheriffs say armed citizens actually “reduce violent criminal activity”.


More than three-fourths, actually.


“Can qualified, law-abiding armed citizens help law enforcement reduce violent criminal activity?”


Yes: 76.0%


No: 18.6%


N/A: 5.4%


Impressive, right?


Additionally, 87.9% of participating law enforcement officers said they think “any vetted citizen” should be able to “purchase a firearm for sport or self-defense,” with only 8.9% disagreeing and 3.2% replying “N/A”.


Also of note: 96.1% of officers responding said they believe an illegal alien convicted of a crime should be “deported after serving their sentence”.
