73. just more sham surveys from sham orgs

excoplawstudent: Yet the PoliceOne survey matches the data from past police surveys .. You may as well save your tirades for the Bansalot group, no one here is buying it.

I'll post where I choose. You cite other slanted surveys, unscientific. Suggestion, go back to being a cop, you'll never make an honest lawyer. If you cannot recognize rightwing propaganda & rather aggrandize it, if you believe those skewed figures in the polls you cite, you have no honest future at the american bar nor do you have the comprehensive skills to qualify for it.

excop cites: San Diego Police Assoc. survey - 82% against assault weapon ban, 82% against hi-cap magazine ban, 84% support CCW, 94% gun control doesn't reduce violent crime, 87% private gun ownership increases public safety, 92% additional gun control won't work, 98% gun buy-backs don't work..

Here's another question from that very SanDiego survey: Do you believe in the death penalty? YES 99.2% NO 0.7% http://www.largo.org/lawEnforce.html
Only a shyster would not see the significance as to what a sham this is. Were you born yday? you believe this is valid & scientifically representative? If you're gonna post rightwing surveys, try a rightwing republican gun board why dontcha?

excop cites NACOP: Nat Assoc Chiefs of Police {NACOP} survey - 79% support nationwide recognition of carry permits,74% armed citizens help reduce violent crime

NACOP criticized by former Congressman Feighan (D-OH), questioned the organization's polling methods in the 1991 CNN special "It is a dangerous organization because it operates and disseminates wrongful information under a very legitimate-sounding name."
2010 survey of 20,000 police chiefs and sheriffs conducted by Nat Assoc of Chiefs of Police (NACOP). The number of officers that actually responded is unknown because NACOP did not release any methodology other than to say that the survey was conducted by mail. NACOP used the same mail methodology in its 2010 survey to claim that law enforcement officers largely opposed the Brady Bill. In a 1991 CNN special, pollster Robt Miller, who had examined NACOP's methods "The results would not be considered accurate by any scholarly or recognized body that evaluates polls."
Dewey Stokes, the then-president of the Fraternal Order of Police "I believe Mr. Arenberg {NACOP} represents a concoction of individuals, in some cases, none of them even associated with law enforcement. And, in my opinion those people could not possibly speak for law enforcement because they do not understand law enforcement."
