This makes a lot of sense: Norway disarms its police officers

Target-rich environment for the terrorists.

Yahoo: Norway’s police, who have been authorised to carry firearms for the past year due to a heightened threat of Islamist attacks, will be unarmed again now that the threat level has been lowered, police said Friday. National police chief Odd Reidar Humlegard told reporters the measure would take effect on November 17.
The country’s 6,000 uniformed police officers will “have to keep their weapons locked in their patrol cars like they did previously,” he said.
Norwegian police were authorised to carry their service weapons on their belts in November 2014 after the country’s intelligence service PST raised the threat level because of the risk of an attack.
A year later, the PST said arrests in Jihadist circles and the departure of radicalised militants to the Middle East had significantly reduced the likelihood of an attack and reduced the threat level at the end of October.
Norway’s police union, most of whose members want to be allowed to carry their service weapons, called the new directive “a very bad decision.” “The temporary arming (of police) responded to an extraordinary situation. As things stand now, our laws do not allow for systematic arming,” Humlegard said.
Norway is known as a generally peaceful country, but was shaken in 2011 by the bloody attacks of right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people.

A policeman without a gun is as useful as a truck without a motor.

And of course the guns locked in the cars are perfectly safe from any and all thieves and/or terrorists……………….NOT.

This is beyond what I can comprehend. The lives of the officers are in peril–if a situation arises , they may not have the time to go get their locked up fun. Although I am one quarter Norwegian–I am ashamed of their stupidity. or the fact that they feel their police officer’s lives are of so little value. Dumb-dumbs!

Please, please comprehend. This goes exactly ‘to plan’. What makes anyone think that the those in power want peace? If they did, they wouldn’t have open borders. Does anyone think these people make mistakes? Good God, wake the pluck up!!

They should also expect an increase in home burglaries,and a corresponding increase in gun thefts;that’s one place criminals get THEIR guns.

If I’m a cop in Norway, I’m looking for openings in the fire department.

Well i live in Norway and we have no need for police that carry weapon.
People in Norway don’t go around with weapon, it’s not socially accepted.
Closest we come to people get shot is hunting accidents.
