>The prime minister has ordered a review of the use of guns by police in England and Wales following the Paris attacks, the BBC understands.

>The review will examine whether the law gives enough support to officers making a "split-second" decision to shoot.

>It follows concerns from senior police that firearms officers do not have the necessary legal or political backing to work with confidence.

>Labour has warned of possible damage to community relations with the police.

>Gunmen and suicide bombers killed 130 people in Paris when they attacked a concert hall, a major stadium, restaurants and bars almost simultaneously on 13 November.

>BBC political correspondent Chris Mason says the atrocity has provoked deep soul-searching within government and among the police, raising the question of how the UK would cope if something similar were to happen here.

The police here abuse and kill enough people as it is, they don't need guns.

There already are victims of black crime, by the thousands, every month

Just because you don't see it going down at starbucks doesn't mean it's not real

i just hope it increases by a lot, most whites are pussies anyways

Yeeehaaw 'murica, where police shot and killed more people in January 2015, than English and Welsh police did in past 24 years
>>
>>10973
They're just taking out the trash. We're safer this way than our police doing nothing and having 24 years of criminals out there causing havoc and all

>>10975
Innocent until proven shot, yeehaaw

Not the racist guy, but America a lot bigger country with more populated cities that bring in poverty, income inequality and crime. Comparing a country of over 300 million to one of 50 million is of course going to have different numbers in crime. Crime is directly related to poverty, and America has a history of slavery and immigration that brings in the poor.

Per capita bro

This could be good news. More guns for cops = more guns in general circulation = more hope for Britain surviving the zombie apocalypse.

On the other hand, I don't trust the average copper to handle his own cock, let alone a deadly weapon.

Don't mind that Americunt.
I agree with you but I don't understand why Cameron is reviewing gun use if it's normal (as in people aren't getting shot) over there. I guess for safety reasons, but I still don't understand.

It's obviously very easy political point scoring too
>Act of terrorism (Paris attacks)
>Fear in the community
>Propose tighter security and defense reform
>Community breaths a sigh of relief
>Politician sits back and watches his polls soar

This strategy is repeated all around the world after every terrorist attack. Does it make us safer? Sometimes yes. What it does achieve is a gradual erosion of our personal rights in the name of national security

We know, the news can't do a day without hearing about your latest police kills unarmed suspect fiasco.

Does the term "per capita" not exist in America?

Because you dumb fucks never understand it.
>>
>>11532
Ypu know something else? Here in Canada, every police officer has a gun too... and there aren't a ton of police killings either. The problem is not guns. It is never fucking guns. The problem is people.

As a proud /k/anadian gun owner, I sure am glad we left the empire. Commonwealth is commonwealth, you know we always got your back, but fuck me, I would NEVER want your laws or culture.

You also have to remember that murders are counted differently in the UK. Our system is quite a bit looser. When you adjust for that, their murder rate is significantly higher, although still slightly below our own.
>>
>>10990
I wrote a paper on this. Even taking into account the different population sizes, and discrepancies in recording of crimes, the US still has a 5-6 times higher homicide rate.

Why do you think that is? Your news reporting every day about what happens in the US.
