I don't have those numbers. We could estimate - the US has, IIRC, about 5 times as many guns, per capita, as the UK. We probably have about the same number of knives, and other melee weapons, per capita. So we could expect that American suspects would have about 5 times the likelihood of being armed as UK suspects.

Which is pretty different than 10,000.
