should police officers in the uk be armed or would this cause more violent crimes ?

yes they should for a few simple reasons as follows
gangs etc have an easy job getting hold of firearms so the police are at a distinct disadvantage
and look at the lee rigby incident i know eventually armed officers did arrive but too late but too have the best chance of saving the soldier we would need to arm civillians but thats beyond the point

but would you not think that with the arming of police officers civilians would be more likely to carry guns because they might feel threatened therefor causing gun crimes to increase in the uk?

Take a look at the United States, our police are armed to the teeth and there have been more innocent people killed by them than the number of soldiers killed in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I am against your topic because it involves militarizing police more than they already are, but not because guns cause crime. So if thats what you are looking for, I will debate you.
