Police chiefs poll
The National Assn of Chiefs of Police has released its annual poll of police chiefs and sheriffs. Among the results:
93.6% stated they support private ownership of firearms.
63.% believe that liberalizing concealed carry will reduce crime.
On the side, 28% supported decriminalizing marihuana, and 42% supported medicinal marihuana.
The firearm results are encouraging, since this is a poll of the top dogs in each department, who have historically tended to be much less pro-gun than the average officer working for them.
