I don't think your officers are poorly trained. It's just that your country is fairly violent and lots of people own guns. The police are just trying to stay alive.

The number of guns has, statistically, nothing to do with it. Wyoming, Vermont, and Montana have among the highest rates of gun ownership, and among the lowest police shootings. Also true in Switzerland.

That's why I mentioned the violence part. A violent culture with easy access to guns is not a good combination. If a cop thinks someone is going to reach for a gun then they are going to get shot.
