How do you feel about armed police?

It’s not the norm but Newcastle’s Christmas Market was monitored by armed police today.

Although the majority of people felt safer with them there, a number of shoppers weren’t so happy. Some felt the guns were unecessary, causing unease when a risk of attack is relatively low. The increase in security comes soon after terror charges are made in Birmingham. 

I personally don’t mind. I hate the fact that we need it but I am more annoyed at those that would love to cause carnage in such an environment. It’s a bit of a shot in the dark to strategically place armed police in one area than another, but hey, what can we do?
