    Yes

    So I'd guess there are more burglaries than bank robberies.

    There are several reasons banks tell employees (not armed guards) to not fight back against a robber.
    The don't fight back strategy has never worked so people are swinging over to a do fight back mindset. Besides people love those videos of crooks getting what they deserve from the guy behind the counter.

    That is why we need guns for self defense and to protect families. The reality of guns and crimes is here to stay in the USA. The monster is out.

    Yes it has actually

    The object is to ensure the bank tellers and bank's customers don't get shot.

    That didn't work in some cases.

    Banks, like military installations, have higher threat level.


    But go ahead an arm yourself to the teeth, you're only making it statistically more likely that you'll be shot.


    Btw, even strict British gun controls allow for the private ownership of a shotgun. Strangely most Britons don't own one - why do you suppose that is ?

    I do not know whether the proposal was ever implemented or not. Some store owners (who were primarily immigrants) said that they would have to go out of business if forced to comply with that proposed law.
    If you have no link it never happened.
    The people who hid Anne Frank were breaking the law. The people who killed her were following it.

    Perhaps, but it did in most.

    If you're a bank teller, the last thing you want is to regarded as an armed guard.

    You haven't proved that.

    I have no idea? I am not British.
