People Aren’t Looking To Police For Protection Anymore

According to a recent Convention of States Action study, more Americans believe that an armed civilian would offer them the best protection in the event of a live shooting than anything else.

According to the survey, 41.8% of participants think that, in the case of a mass shooting, they would be best protected by armed citizens. Only 25.1% of respondents considered local law enforcement to be the best course of action, the second most popular response.

However, there was a definite political gap in the poll. Only 16.3 percent of Democratic respondents agreed with the Republican respondents who felt that an armed citizen would be the most trustworthy source of security against a mass shooter.

Nearly two-thirds of voters express doubt in the ability of their local law enforcement and elected leaders to apprehend a violent individual before they launch a mass shooting. Of all respondents, 35,3% expressed “not very confident,” while 26,9% expressed “not confident at all” in local and state law enforcement.

President of the Convention of States Action Mark Meckler seems to insinuate that the recent shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, may have been motivated by police incompetence.

“Americans watched in horror as an active shooter was permitted to rampage through a school while the police stood outside and did absolutely nothing. Over and over again, citizens are given the clear message that — when it comes to protecting loved ones —you’re on your own. At the same time, we’re told guns are the problem and we should give up our right to self-defense,” Meckler said.
