A think tank with “Police” in its name is nothing but a shill for gun control. From Duane Norman at fmshooter.com:
The myth that police support gun control legislation is one of the most frequent crutches used by gun control groups to support disarming Americans. At the forefront of this is the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), a DC-based think tank with a long anti-gun history.
This is all done with your tax dollars, no less, as the Nationalist Review recently exposed the DOJ’s funding of PERF:
Made up of police chiefs and executives from large cities, PERF policies have resulted in a “soft federalization” of policing, with “training courses” that yield almost zero flexibility for officers in the field, and this rigidity extends to the push to restrict civilian firearms ownership at every juncture.
