Armed police=public safety I think that all police in all countries should have a gun to not only protect public, but also themselves. Say you had a robber holding someone by a knife, and that someone is your mum, and you are a cop. You would definitely want a gun at your side. And that is just one prospect of many that could occur in your life. So I am sure that all cops in all countries should be allowed to have a gun once they have passed a test to prove that they would use it in the right way in any situation. Thanks for reading and hope this might change your view on this subject!
