Cops on Britain don't have guns. Neither do most of the criminals....
Good for them. How do they protect themselves against a car ramming people, or someone attacking with a knife? Do they say "would you bloody stop please?"
Yes. At least no one got shot.
"I'm sorry your son was killed" O My God... WAS HE SHOT? "No Ma'am he was stabbed and be-headed". O, well at least it wasn't a bullet.
The courts ruled that armed police... including security officers hired specifically for schools... are not obligated or legally required to even try to stop anything. 90% approve of universal background checks to keep the wrong people from getting guns.
And a good guy with a gun is just another active shooter in that situation.
Let’s see...armed security, former cop, in school, left his gun in the bathroom... can they be trusted? Had the wrong person find the gun, what happens then? https://nypost.com/2019/01/09/high-school-guard-fired-for-leaving-gun-on-bathroom-counter/ … https://www.newsday.com/long-island/suffolk/security-guard-gun-babylon-school-1.25733916 …
They get stabbed to death or acid thrown in their faces.
They do have nice wooden sticks and cheery personas.
