National FOP President Chuck Canterbury's Response to President Obama's Remarks on the National Public Safety Crisis01/18/2013
"President Obama today began a necessary national debate on firearms violence, its causes, and how best to deal with it. We particularly welcome his support for an expansion of background checks before allowing the acquisition of firearms, beefing up ATF, and providing desperately needed funding for additional state and local cops on the street.

"We intend to be very active participants in the process going forward, and assisting in the crafting of solid improvements in public safety policy."
