From BBC

There were no armed police officers at Glasgow Airport when the terminal building was attacked last Saturday, BBC Scotland has learned.

Armed police were on duty at most other major British airports at the time.

The two men arrested at the airport were tackled by an unarmed officer, an off-duty policeman who was passing by and members of the public.

A force spokeswoman said armed officers were only deployed to the airport when the national threat level required it.

The government raised the threat level to “critical” for a short period after the attack.

Do firearms act as a deterrent? 

Is the absence of firearms an incentive to terrorists? 

Is that the sound of crickets chirping throughout the MSM?
