Criminals aren’t allowed to have guns.  They gave up that right when they became criminals.

If the police are not deterred by criminals with guns why would they be deterred by citizens who don’t believe themselves to be criminals (because they think the laws they are breaking are unconstitutional) with guns?

Several things are wrong with the premise.  Police are deterred by criminals with guns, which is why they face so much danger when they must go into areas where guns are illegal: it is very dangerous there.  Their risk of being shot is very high.  Example: south Chicago.


If police are asked to disarm citizens who have not committed a crime, many or most would likely refuse: that job is too dangerous.
