Legalise Handguns and Arm the Police sign now

I am a shooting enthusiast and a political enthusiast from the UK.
After the tragic Dunblane massacre, the newly elected and heavily pressurised Prime Minister [Tony Blair] acted irresponsibly and irrationally, by imposing a total ban on handguns in order that psychopaths would no longer be able to inflict such terrible damage. However, it matters not what type of firearm a killer uses, a point-blanc range shot will have a very similar effect.
Since then, domestic crime has risen, the Government has lost the financial, sporting and recreational benefits of legal handguns. I propose the motion thatbthe ban on handguns was a farce and a gross injustice on those that enjoyed the sport and made a living from it, and I beleive it high time that this gross injustice was corrected.

However, i aim to have to motions in one petition. Armed crime in Britain is on the rise. Why do you think police now wear kevlar as standard? Or take, for example, the case of PC Ian Broadhurst being executed by David Beiber IN HIS POLICE CAR. Police need to be armed for their saftey and for the saftey of the public in general.
Had police been armed at the death of Ian Broadhurst, the shooting [non-fatal] of two other officers may well have been prevented.
The argument that if the police are armed as standard, criminals will arm themselves as standard is nonsensical. The reason for this is twofold:
1). The huge majority of criminals do not want to become 'cop killers' as this may well lead to life imprisonment for what was origionally a petty offence.
2). Handguns are so readily available, with ammunition, that any criminal that feels the need to arm himself can do so with ease and at low cost. And if the police and the Government truly beleive that having a 'gun amnesty' once a year will persuade the majority of criminals to relinquish their weapons, they are sadly very mistaken.
So for this reason, i beg you to sign this petition, which, when a suitable number of signatures has been collected, will be handed to the government. If you are worried about persecution, feel free to write your name as anonymous.

And should you not agree with one of the two views on handguns expressed here, please just write as such in the appropriate section that you are only signing the petition in support of one motion.
