PoliceOne, a private organization with 450,000 members (380,000 full-time active law enforcement and 70,000 retired), polled its members in 2013 shortly after the Newtown, Conn., massacre.

Another 6 percent thought the presence of legally armed civilians would “likely” have prevented the innocent casualties altogether.
