The Blaze (h/t Emma) For most Londoners, the plan makes the most sense. That’s because citizens in the United Kingdom are generally prohibited from carrying concealed weapons that would help fend off an attack, like a concealed handgun.

Indeed, video and images taken from the scene around Saturday’s attack showed people running away or hiding under tables in restaurants. Some witnesses even said they saw cops running away from the attackers because many of them don’t have guns, either.

Many restaurant patrons were forced to fight back against the three attackers, who possessed long knives and were indiscriminately stabbing people, with nothing but chairs and random objects like pint glasses. Needless to say, the Metropolitan police department’s tweet quickly became a laughing stock among Americans.

Sad that the young officer who fought the #IslamistTerrorists with such astounding bravery was armed only with a baton, per protocol in UK.
