When are Police Organizations going to stop endorsing NRA backed candidates?

3. The prevailing opinion is that that GOP is pro-law enforcement.

Hence, the endorsements. I don't think they even consider the NRA connections.

Besides, from what I've seen, police organizations and members of law enforcement are, on average, more in line with NRA views on gun rights than the public at large.

6. Lots of individual cops support the 2A..

As currently interpreted. That's why.
