Why So Many Police Chiefs Favor Gun Control, When Most Sheriffs Don’t

Grand Junction, CO –(Ammoland.com)- This contains some concepts that many folks haven’t considered.
We are not siding with or against the police or advancing excuses for them and we hope it does not appear we are picking on them either; we aren’t.
For this work, we interviewed 17 chiefs and sheriffs from around the country. From those conversations (emails and phone) we have some quotes in this work. We were asked not to source the particular quotes and that is fair since this was not an on the record news interview, we just wanted their thoughts and opinions. So, as Joe Friday said, “just the facts ma’am.”
When it comes to various politicians and others speaking against gun ownership (the 2nd Amendment and Constitution by definition) politicians will many times cite city and state police chiefs who allegedly may support the anti-gun movement. These politicians may have police chiefs and their officers appear with them as props or spokesmen in news conferences.
So the logical question to ask is why are these top cops so seemingly against firearm ownership?
