All statements involving Edward Flynn

In 2012, there were nearly 12.2 million arrests and only 410 "uses of deadly force" by police in the United States.

The Milwaukee Police Department has seized nearly as many firearms this year as the much larger New York City Police Department.

"In the city of Milwaukee, we’ve still got a mayor and a police chief who are furloughing police officers at a time when we have violence all across the city."

Research found that "over the course of the existence of the Brady Bill ban, the use of assault weapons in crimes decreased by two thirds."  

Says 85 percent of Milwaukee shootings involve "people with extensive criminal records shooting other people with extensive criminal records."
