If Knuckles does not have guard it (despite someone really should) then in the comics why didn't he just give over the Master Emerald? Also G.U.N's actions do make sense Gerald was negotiating with The Black Arms. These details make up the continuity and should not be thrown away just because you find that they get in the way.

Because Angel Island would crash into the ocean if he did.

GUN funds the Ultimate Life Form.
GUN arbitrarily decides that the Ultimate Life Form is a threat (without knowing about Black Doom) and decides to, instead of cut funding, board the ARK with soldiers and only kill Maria (the artificial Chaos, Shadow, Gerald, Emerl and Biolizard are all kept alive, and the Eclipse Cannon is left untouched.)
GUN then decides they want the Ultimate Life Form project finished anyway and recapture Shadow. They have Gerald continue working on the project and even allow him access to the Biolizard.
GUN then executes Gerald, and covers the whole thing up as an accident.

And the worst part? There's not a single named GUN troop in SA2. This makes it easy to handwave away as GUN being a plot device, but it also means we have absolutely no face to attribute these antagonists to, and we have no reason to sympathize with the new GUN 50 years later who are just doing their job. GUN makes no sense whatsoever from an "internal logic" standpoint.

Described like that, GUN are the very definition of a government agency :(hearty laughter):
