British Police Officers

Those jackets are an arse when somebody's headlights hits 'em. Seriously, I dropped all of my swag.

 

But seriously, I feel that Mike Tequili had it right when he said there's a balance when it comes to guns; they are illegal and that means that the numbers of criminals possessing them without detection is statistically infrequent. The police force do not carry weapons aside from special events and locations, which means there's some form of equilibrium.

Guns are a larger element than you think in Britain, it's frightening really in some areas, how many people have guns.. especially in bad boy gang culture

Then I don't see the problem in giving the officers guns.

Why shouldn't they have guns? They are the police are they not?

 

I sure as hell woulldn't want to be a cop without a gun ... that hardly seems smart or fair.

Heres a secret, Criminals don't buy guns through legal means wink.gif

 

When the IRA handed over their weapons they included an Ground-to-Air missile, they aren't legal over here. When some gang members over here were caught in a sting operation buying guns from London gangsters it included handguns, machine guns, grenades etc. We generally get all our weaponry from the UK and the UK has plenty to spare, hell, we even get reinforcements from the UK.

f*ck yeah. I agree that guns maybe a bit harder to get in England due to their gun laws, but that doesn't mean they can't get them. For example, I live in the US where fully automatic weapons are illegal, yet, I know of at least a dozen average citizens in my area that own such weapons. Hell, a house just up the road from me was busted by the police, where they confiscated dozens of assault rifles and machine pistols, even a few grenades. I don't live in or near any major, gang infested city, either. I live more in the country. What I'm getting at is, anyone can get any kind of gun if they really want to. If you had a mind to, you could probably be able to track someone down willing to sell you, or someone who knows of a way to get you a flamethrower or an RPG or whatever, not too far from where you live. The world is not at a lack of it's black market gun sales and gun runners. Now I'm not trying to go all gun nutty or what have you, but I like to live by the old saying:

 

"Better to have a gun and not need it than not have a gun and need one."

In an ideal world, we'll see all types of firearms being rid from the world. But because that's never going to happen, firearms should at least be available to all walks of mankind, no matter what role they play. I'm more afraid of the fact that the government have an easier access to arms (while we aren't), rather than petty criminals out there who already have a limited amount. If anything, these criminals are our friends when it comes to corruption.
