This story would end differently if it took place in the United States.....2 unarmed, off duty police officers face off against 4 armed robbers....the robbers have a pump action shotgun....in Britain, where they banned guns and confiscated them....and even if they hadn't odds are this guy would not pass a background check.... The outcome....the 2 unarmed police deal with the 4 armed robbers and don't wind up shot to death... Off-duty police officers tackle armed robbery gang as they raid jewellery shop wo off-duty police officers have been hailed heroes after confronting a gang of armed robbers when they stumbled on a jewellery raid. Sgt Iain McIvor was celebrating his promotion with colleague Sgt David Wilson in a pub when they heard screaming and shouting coming from a nearby jewellery shop. The Lincolnshire Police officers ran over and spotted the four men in Andrew Michael's jewellers in Newark, Notts. ----- One of the four masked robbers pumped the barrel and yelled, "Get back or I'll shoot", as his accomplices rushed out with around £250,000 worth of watches and jewellery. Sgt McIvor grabbed the man with the shotgun in a bear-hug and began to wrestle with him in a bid to get his firearm.
