Are the police morons?

Brilliant story in El Reg.

A Leicestershire couple who decided it would be a wheeze to celebrate renewing their wedding vows with a Wild West-themed party got a bit of a shock when armed police backed by a helicopter descended on the bash.

Yes, you've guessed it, someone saw a man carrying a water pistol and phoned the police just in case. What is really funny is that the family had even called the police in advance to tell them what was going to be happening.

The is a hysteria that has enveloped the police regarding firearms, any mention by Joe public of 'what looked like a gun', and the local SWAT team descends on everybody. I cannot recall any incident where police firearm squads saved a life, killed someone yes (don't carry table legs)
