Scotland Yard Mentions Possible Terror Attack

I have to stop and do my time card for last week, but just one more item.  This is something I missed earlier and so am playing catch up.

The Times (or, if you live in New York City and need a clue, The Times of London) had a story a week ago (20 December 2009) on a possible Mumbai like attack in London.
Scotland Yard has warned businesses in London to expect a Mumbai-style attack on the capital.

In a briefing in the City of London 12 days ago, a senior detective from SO15, the Metropolitan police counter-terrorism command, said:  "Mumbai is coming to London."

The detective said companies should anticipate a shooting and hostage-taking raid "involving a small number of gunmen with handguns and improvised explosive devices".
In the November 2008 Mumbai attack 174 people were killed and some 300 injured.  While most of the killing occurred in the first half hour, tracking down the perps took three days.  As most of the terrorists were prepared to die, the police ended up with only one suspect in custody.

Wouldn't this be a good reason for Parliament to bring back individual weapons and to allow concealed carry?
