Remember When ‘Bobbies’ Were Famous For Being Unarmed?

Well, not so much, anymore…


While on my trip in the UK, I noticed a staggering amount of armed police officers guarding the gates to castles and palaces. These were not security guards but actual police officers. All were armed with Glocks and a couple of them were armed with either a MP5 or MP7, and this was at every place I went to.

This is at Windsor Castle. This gate is the exit for tourists. However it is a controlled entrance for certain vehicles. It is guarded by a couple of officers, one of which is armed with a MP5A4 with Surefire fore end.

Funny how the British population was largely disarmed in 1997, crime has risen, and the constabulary is now carrying a multitude of semi-and fill auto firearms.

Sir Robert Peale must be spinning in his grave.

  1. Isn’t it amazing how crime always goes up when potential victims are forcibly disarmed by gummint action?

    Okay, it’s not surprising at all.

  2. Well Rev, surely they need to pass another law! Just ask the current administration what should be done when people* break the laws of NYC or Chicago. DOUBLE DOWN! Make the law abiding jump through even more hoops and then magically, the criminals will stop shootin’ and lootin’.

    *obviously politicians and their relatives, campaign contributors and the guys who pay the biggest kickbacks on contracts are exempt from any and all prosecution.
