Every year, there are more police related deaths than murders carried out by a citizen. Countless innocent lives have been lost at the hands of a police officer. By taking guns away from police, we can hopefully reduce the fear and hatred of police in this country along with reducing the amount of police related deaths per year.

But not having a gun would put the officer's life at risk

Not true! An average police officer is equipped with a Taser and a bulletproof vest. Those tasers can shoot electrified prongs up to 25 feet with a power of approximately 50,000 volts (depending on the model) is more than enough power to take a suspect down. A normal police-issued vest can stop a typical 9mm bullet and in some cases some forms of rifle rounds. These are only some pieces of non-lethal equipment an average officer has on his person.

What about school shootings?

Aren't school shootings a form of terrorism? Let the military handle that! They're more trained to deal with those types of situations.

Why not take guns away from the citizens instead of police?

This can't be used as a counter argument in this matter. An unarmed citizen is just as at risk of getting shot by police than an armed citizen. Not to mention it's a constitutional right for a citizen to bear arms.
