And yet in spite of that and the adoption of sidearms by many British police officers on the beat their nation still registers just a handful of gun murders per year.

Now how do you explain that?
It has to be mindset. Look at how England, Australia, Canada, and how they choose to view guns. Then look at the U.S.

We've made guns an integral part of our way of life, and not just in a protective sense, but in a rebellious sense. We want our guns so that we can always threaten the government with retribution should they somehow decide to take away our rights. It's the level of paranoia present, and massive pro-gun lobbying groups like the NRA play on it in order to fatten their coffers, while those very same people swallow every word they say.
