A few days ago I saw this video above and the idea easily got stuck in my head. How true is it?

Let me give you another example that I came across since I am living in Bratislava. In 2010 there was [a terrible incident][1] that shocked everyone. A man opened fire on a gipsy family, killing 6 people, injuring 14 others and then committing suicide.

As a result, now the Police forces increased significantly. I once saw 3 patrol cars in under 2 minutes, just going up and down the streets of downtown. They even patrol, by car, in the most uncommon places where you wouldn’t even think a car has access. I never saw so many policemen in all the cities I’ve been visiting all over Europe. On top of that, some of them are carrying machine guns. I am not talking about special forces, just regular policemen. It is chilling to be stopped by a patrol officer and see him coming to your car holding an AK-47.

I understand that the incident from 2010 was a terrible one and something should be done to prevent it, but let’s be serious now, these situations are isolated. Sending officers on the street with that kind of firepower doesn’t make the citizens feel more secure, on the contrary, it makes them feel more afraid and expect something bad to happen any time.

Instead of doing that, they could ban the store recently opened in a shopping mall that sells “hunting” equipment, among which you can also find automated rifles. Wouldn’t that make more sense?
