    I'm from UK and I'm against our police being armed because they may have 'more shootings ' in this country - UK) but our police are great at handlling them. Besides that I think one you start more shootings could happen

    Eliminated? No. But guns have stopped a few terror attacks. The trade show in Texas a few years ago springs to mind.

    People should have the right to defend themselves, Steve.

    Welcome back, by the way.

    How many more terrorist attacks have happened because of them? How many children have died because of adults that can't handle guns compared to the UK? how may criminals are armed in the us compared to there places?

    terrorism does not happen because of guns steve, recent attacks in the U.K should be proof enough of that.

    There's been a fair bit of debate about the recent attack and the routine arming of police but I've heard zero about the English* wanting unlicensed guns as a result. In fact there's actually been some talk about what would have happened had the latest three been able to get hold of firearms as opposed to kitchen knives. Sort of the reverse really!

    I think the conversation should really start with arming all police. Having some run away from the attackers because there was nothing they could do vs a normal guy at a pub standing up and shout F! you I'm Millwall vs the time it took for armed police to end the attack even though they still stabbed some poor guy in front of the armed police.

    "“These tragedies may have been the eye opener to just how ineffective our laws are.”"

    That statement seems to be true, but I wouldn't say that "our laws" must be "our gun laws". I doubt guns would've prevented any of these attacks.

    Armed police would have lessened it.

    Pretty shameful IMO, but in the context of the terrorists having fake suicide bomb vests I can see why one might run.

    My real comment here is that I don't think this thread is going to be remotely productive.

    The conversation has been going on for years and we'll always come at this discussion from different perspectives - UK/US. I haven't heard much down the pub from people who want police to armed routinely and that seemed to be gist of the original post. It will change the dynamic of policing here. At the moment it feels like most people think that they don't want to go there yet as while it would probably help in a still relatively rare terrorist incident people are nervous of where it would lead in other situations. (Football crowd trouble, Saturday nights sorting out punch ups in the kebab shop etc etc) but I guess that might change.

    Are you sure about the police running away? I've done a quick search and the sources I find seem to be pretty much just US or Israeli and appear uncorroborated.
