Survey Results - Pledge not to confiscate?

On January 13 I wrote "How about this pledge?", referring to a pledge that could be sought from mayors and law enforcement heads throughout the county (and state). To view that article quickly, just enter "pledge" in the search box at the upper left corner of this website and click on "Search".

A survey was posted last week that asked this question, “Should police chiefs be asked to pledge not to confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens?”

Many thanks to the 34 readers who participated in this survey. Their responses were

Yes 26 (77%)
No 8 (23%)

Why is this question particularly important now?

Here's what one reader had to say after last night's McHenry County Right to Carry Association meeting: "Deputies are instructed to arrest first when it comes to guns. Even if the FOID (card)is valid and the gun is stored properly. We always take the gun and if the person is legit, he can come pick up the gun later."
