Why do Americans always go "LOOK LOOK! LOOK AT THAT OVER THERE AND WHAT HAPPENED HERE!" Everytime you present them with something they need to do in their country, they dig old BS about other countries and say how it's really not that bad.

We have guns in the wrong hands, true, but we also have something of a terrorist issue around high profile events.

Regular cops do not have guns and, even after two female police officers were ambushed and murdered responding to a routine call, most regular cops do not want that to change.

I used two lines to point out that was a highly partisan source, which I think is undeniable, and the rest addressing the points.

So you need police with guns because you have so few guns? Why would they need them then? Oh incase someone trys to do a mass shooting or attack royalty.

I *just* said we have specialised firearms response units. You just posted a photo of one.

And yes, I think it's a good idea to beef up security around our national tourist cash cow. They`re high-profile targets, so the armed police are justified.

Last time I checked, I`m not a high-profile target. I don`t think I need an armed police presence to guard me.

And having reached age 28 having NEVER seen a gun in the flesh that wasn`t held by a police officer or a soldier, nor having EVER seen in person a knife used as a weapon or threat, I don`t think I`ve much to worry about so far.
