Yep, typical leftist pessimism.

The way things are today, I wonder that arming the police hasn't happened already.  It would be a sad day though, as far as I'm concerned.

I'm afraid it is coming.

It used to be well over 90% of police who didn't want to be armed

This whole debate is bullshit.

Police are armed often already.   And, in the big cities, even the most routine patrols can have armed cops attending in a matter of minutes, as they're strategically located throughout the city ready to respond at any time.

The question is whether the police should be ROUTINELY armed.   

And I still say they shouldn't.
