    I guess it really depends on the crime rate and the severity of said crimes.. I'm not from there, so I can't say much.

    I don't know what kind of a debate this is. If the police force didn't carry firearms, I don't see what threat they would pose.

    Seeing as the majority, and we're talking a massive majority of officers do not carry firearms, and the country is not over run by crime, I don't think they should.

    Well it depends on the crime rate.

    It could also be when police carry firearms it influences that criminals use firearms to defend off.
    It's just a opinion.

    Not really, it actually works as a psychological deterrent. It prevents people from commiting crime in the first place; because, they are afraid to get shot.

    Re: Should British Police carry firearms?

    I actually don't think its such a good idea. its okay to have a S.W.A.T like squad ready for any situations. But the police should not carry firearms. I just don't think fear is the way to go with this kind of thing. But i might be wrong, i really cant find any justificatory except that the police over here don't have any guns, but they have tazers and clubs. I don't think a gun is necessary. The second a suspect feels like his life is being threatened he might open fire.
