And as Andy and I have said, those guns are rarely, if ever, used in
crimes. It's government property and even those with criminal tendencies
won't use a government gun.
Because it doesn't happen.
Did you read the pages you reference? The military guns are all assault
rifles, the guns being complained about are privately owned handguns.
And I'm not convinced that the page you reference is accurate. The
murder rate in Switzerland in 2001 was quoted by the Home Office at
1.2/100,000 and the England and Wales rate at 1.6/100,000.
A large proportion of the British public are sheeple.
