For Middle-Class Pakistanis, a Gun Is a Must-Have Accessory

Good read over at the wsj:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123120431026355961.html

[Pakistanis] say the government isn't doing enough to get arms in the hands of those who need them. "Criminals don't have licenses, so why do we need to get a license?" asked Tariq Rana, who on a recent day was buying an illegal 12-gauge shotgun after he was robbed of his cellphone, watch and cash the night before. "I couldn't get an arms license because I don't know any politicians."

Great article. One can only hope and pray and continue to defend the 2nd amendment. Funny how you could change a few names and cities and it would sound like D.C. or New York.

Great article. If you go to the worst places in the world, people don't look to the government for their personal security; security to them is an AK-47. From Rwanda to Afghanistan to Laos, the world is full of governments that cannot or will not keep their citizenry safe.

You don't need to go that far. From LA to San Fran, from Detroit to DC, from Chicago to New York. None of us I'm afraid are free to bear arms. Only to keep them and that temporary at best.
