Which, curiously enough, is the general opinion among UK citizens.

Criminals here who use guns would use them whether or not the populace
were armed. If we were all armed though, the chance of the criminal
shooting first would multiply. Some of them carry them, but as a
threat, and they often turn out to be dummy ones. The reason? If they
carried real ones, they would get much longer sentences.
