While I admire the fact that these bastards I mean crims are no more, I don't fully agree with the argument that shooting criminals fixes the problem.
The fact that the paramilitary are ready to shoot these guys is most likely the reason they are armed in the first place, so you've already increased gun power simply for a nice outcome. It won't mentioned crossfire, and it did mention holding up people, so innocents get more scared. The result is of scared innocents is to push the govt/police to arm more, which is then equalled by the crims arming more.
Whether that be straight retaliation, or dodgy/incompetent cops, it is usually inevitable. We already see it here, cops now have tasers, and we see the occasional story of a criminal using them too (see recent headline about woman tasered then burried alive)
