Editor-in-Chief Frank Borelli of Officer.com talks to Cam Edwards about a recent poll on the website asking officers if they believe that "assault weapons" bans make them safer. Borelli reports that only 12% of those responding felt that such bans increased their safety, while others felt that they either had no effect or actually decreased safety. He says that while police chiefs with political appointments may come out in favor of gun control, it is important to remember that most rank-and-file officers support the existence of an armed citizenry. Borelli also thanks the Police Officers Safety Association (POSA) for supporting this poll.
