No loaded weapons?

Good Lord, on an armoured truck I carry a loaded sidearm, and have a loaded shotgun available in the truck. I can shoot anyone that threatens me and has the means to cause me death or greivous bodily harm.
I don't need to wait for them to shoot first.
And that's on the streets of my home province.
