This is how I know you don’t read information presented:
"And when it comes to finding ways to reduce gun violence and large scale shootings, most cops say a federal ban on so-called “assault weapons” isn’t the answer.
More than 91 percent of respondents say it would either have no effect or a negative effect in reducing violent crime. This is an overwhelming response by those whose job it is to actually deal with this issue on the front lines."
That’s specifically about assault weapons. Your claim about military and police isn’t true.
"A full 86 percent feel that casualties would have been reduced or avoided in recent tragedies like Newtown and Aurora if a legally-armed citizen was present "
In other words, 86% think more legally-armed citizens would reduce deaths while 91% think banning assault weapons wouldn’t help. It’s interesting that citizens want to do exactly what police say won’t help while citizens reject the idea that police say will help. It’s pretty amazing that citizens think they know more than the police who deal with the issues on a daily basis.
