    I had always suspected that most police chiefs were politicos, and more likely to be (at least publically) more gun-control like Mayors seem to be, but I heard an interview on AM radio this morning (Dallas area, I think the station was 570) with either the President of this association or his representative and he unequivocatedly stated that they were "pro-gun". He said that 65% of their members support citizen CCW.

    Interesting. Maybe this org. has a lot of rural and small town chiefs/sherrifs?

    If you are talking about the IACP their stance by the Board Members is anti CCW. I know, I belong and have sent them letters protesting their stance. However, I am sure there are many Chiefs, Administrators etc. like myself that are pro gun etc. But our views rarely get the light.

    Just like my state association I belong to, the official stance is anti CCW etc but there are many Chiefs that are not against it. I am actually enjoying the new HR218 because is flies right into the face of the state associations position. Love it.
