1.) Virtually all respondents (95 percent) say that a federal ban on manufacture and sale of ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds would not reduce violent crime.

The overwhelming majority (almost 90 percent) of officers believe that casualties would be decreased if armed citizens were present at the onset of an active-shooter incident.

The run on ammo has been ridiculous. I'm still waiting for people to calm the fu(k down so I can get a large purchase of .223 ammo.
