The amateurish criminals maybe, the more psychotic ones tend to try to outgun whatever a cop has.
Provided it's worth the risk, and won't cause terrible problems if caught with them, then yes. However, it's not as easy to get a hold of such weapons in every country, which is why I am against the carrying of guns by for instance Norwegian police, and in favor of having U.S police carry them.

Situation is that there are good cops and bad cops, and to be perfectly blunt gun control laws just make it harder for law-abiding citizens to get guns, the criminals just go and get guns off the black market.
This of course supose that there is a black market that is easily accesible, which isn't the case everywhere.
