This sort of thing might work well in rural areas and small towns, but in the cities, criminals might think that's a good place to get guns.Oh, definitely. I live in a city, and crooks are all the time strolling into the cop shop down on 42nd and College and boosting the guns right out of the cops' holsters.
Oh, wait, no they don't.
You gotta love how the thinly-veiled contempt for the rubes in the sticks was worked into the, er, bizarre theory about how crooks obtain guns.
Yes, ubu, a significant percentage of cops who are killed by gunfire are killed with their own guns, but that's not how that happens.
