America could be disarmed within a generation?
An example of the problem noted in the post below is this police chief who says that with the right measures, Americans could be disarmed "within a generation." I guess these measures include repealing the Fourth and Second Amendments--and who knows what else. Where did the city find this guy? Oh--it's California--never mind! Other law enforcement chiefs are saying they would not cooperate with the feds on strict gun control. Looks like everybody, including law enforcement, is polarized on this. However, based on my limited contacts, it seems to me that most rank-and-file officers oppose stricter gun contol. However, I do know a Sheriff and a police chief who do not favor more controls. The few old surveys I have seen show that controls are favored among the brass (who frequently have to brown-nose mayors and politicians) and disfavored among the rank-and file. What are your police friends and contacts saying?
