Our response to the incident was a full firearms operation and the suspects were confronted by armed police officers.
Hopefully the law will be applied as such as well...

Hopefully they will be subject to the full force of the law as it stands and that legitimate shooters will not be penalised as a result.

You can bet your last pound that the penalty won't be nearly as bad as the publicity it has generated already. I would lay odds that the court case doesn't even get reported. "Not news worthy enough," they will say. Meanwhile we all get tarred with the same brush.
