I actually wasn't even aware that Police in New Zealand didn't carry arms (sort of like England, I guess). Here, our Police do - and oddly enough, even our Transit Police (not actually Police Officers per se) carry guns now. So to have our poor Border Guards unarmed - eek!
Completely off topic here, but in ratio to population, very few Canadians have guns - except the gangs and other bad guys. So when our Federal Government put out an 'Amnesty' asking everyone to turn in guns, it may have sounded like a great idea but surely wasn't. The program literally cost millions to implement and even then only some of the good guys turned in their guns, of course. Still can't quite get my mind around the Government's theory/dream that the 'bad guys' would do it too - duh! Gentle sigh.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.
While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.
