if every decent citizen had weapons on them at all times those situations could be prevented or minimized.
Like the school shootings where they hid like cowards outside the building? Decent citizens would be paralysed by fear, and more to the point, as America shows, those situations happen more when people are armed.
But this mindset will quickly change with a recent introduction of voluntary territorial defense units [WOT]
The WOT forces are regarded as a complete joke in Poland by most. The statistics speak for themselves - only 16% of people signing up for them come from cities, and furthermore, they've been recruiting from the unemployable. It won't survive a change of government, because any decent reserve needs to be based on more than unemployed people signing up for vodka.
Guns are not on the agenda in Poland, it's as simple as that.
