Default German Police about to ban firearms from service

Hello everyone

On early monday morning, a german police officer was attacked by a person he was supposed to arrest, and, after he failed to stop the person with peperspray, fatally shot the attacker.
Now the german police considers ending the use of firearms alltogether (apart from special forces), and replace them with tasers.
Some say that, if the police literally puts down their guns, so will the criminals.
I might be a little prejudicated, but I think if they do that, things are going to get really ugly (after all, there are still heaps of illegal and some legal firearms around).
What do you think?

Sounds like the thinking of our liberal lefties here in the states.

No it can't be explained. No they won't listen to facts. No they have no common sense.

For instance, somebody commits a crime with an illegally obtained gun. Either stolen or back alley type purchase.

So the left wants to make more laws that only the legal gun owners will follow. It won't make one bit of difference to the criminals who get their guns from a guy in an alley. But it makes them feel better.

Little adition:
The police was called to a riot in a private apartment.
When they arrived, the attacker stormed out of the house and stabbed one of the cops twice, before the second officer tried peperspray before he used his firearm.

Oh, and they consider the M26 (Taser - Internet Movie Firearms Database - Guns in Movies, TV and Video Games), and call it "more efficient than any firearm" (quoted).

Well, I know.
I guess in the US, there wouldn't be a discussion about an attacker being shot after he severely wounded an officer, would there?

Good luck with those tasters during a German winter.

This line of "thinking" will be cheered by criminals and will get officers killed.

When facing a lethal threat, lethal force is the appropriate response.

Not really, I just thought that the USA would give appropriate reaction to a highly dangerous attack.

In general, this is true. In the situation you described, nobody would call it anything but a good shoot. We do have some idiots, though and love to hear the sound of their own voices as they spew verbal diarrhea anytime they have half a chance to throw down the race card.
