As a citizen who has been twice held up on gun point in the past two months, I protest the PMs decision to distribute weapons amongst his shady cronies. There is a need for complete deweaponisation (as also suggested by the Supreme Court), and every citizen regardless of his rank or status must be asked to surrender all weapons -licensed or otherwise. The root cause is the discretionary Arms Ordinance which must be struck down, so that no one in the country including the Prime Minister could have the authority to dole out licenses. Unless all factions of society come together to push for complete deweaponisation,we will keep waiting for our turn to be killed or kidnapped by the squad ofapproved license holders.
