    Pakistanis stock up on guns

    20 million carry firearms

    Ayesha Akram, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

    Tuesday, January 13, 2009
    When Abid Noor bids farewell to his wife before leaving for work each morning, he runs a mental check to see whether he has remembered everything - his briefcase, his watch, the lunch his wife has packed and a loaded AK-47.

    The AK-47, or Kalashnikov as it is commonly called in Pakistan, is a recent addition.

    "I only began carrying it two to three months ago and now I don't leave home without it," said Mr. Noor, 40, who works at the government's planning and development department in the northwest city of Peshawar.

    Mr. Noor said he decided to travel armed after a friend, Muhammed Javed Afridi, was kidnapped by five masked men carrying AK-47s, while driving home.

    Another friend "was working as principal of a school in Jamrud, and for no apparent reason he was shot dead one day as he was returning from work."

    "I think the police are doing the best they can but it's not enough," he said. "I need to try and save myself also."

    It's hard to quantify the exact numbers of Pakistanis carrying arms. Some estimates put the number of small arms in the nation of 172 million at more than 20 million, most of them unlicensed.

    The United States has a far larger number of weapons per capita - 210 million privately owned firearms in a nation of 300 million, according to National Rifle Association, but these are licensed.

    The North West Frontier Province, a haven for insurgents with a population of about 2 million, is thought to have more than a half-million illegal small arms and light weapons.

    American small arms are licensed? This lends a true lack of creadance to this story.

      Yeah. The author does not live in one of the handful of free states. Must live in Illinois or New York.

        Hey Rusty, you need to watch yourself using that "Paki" slang. It got Prince Harry in all sorts of hot water!;)

          Huh? I was unaware of that. I did not know it was some sort of slur. Heck, Paki and Afi food are some of the best on the planet. My apologies to any Paki out there.

            Rusty,
            Another wrinkle on this story, of course, is that under Islamic Sha'ria law, the non-Muslim dhimmi Christians and Jews are not allowed to keep and bear arms or to ride horseback (the latter act being an attribute of soldiers in many Islamic nations.)

              Yeah that "Paki" comment and the PC BS that followed are pure bull. Paki-stan means land of the Pakis. Afgani-stan land of Afganis. Turkmenistan same thing. No Afgani gets pissed over being called by thier CHOOSEN ethnic name. However I have noted several times that the Pakis are a very up tight and generaly disagreeable bunch of muslims who would piss on about the sun rise.

                  Yeah, I agree with that...I'm probably the biggest racist out there...I hate everybody.

                    Racism, properly defined, is the belief that one particular race is inherently superior to another...not merely disliking another because of their race...we see this in White Power, Black Panthers, Chinese Triads, etc....most people are simply prejudicial...they attribute a stereotype to any number of individuals based on their color, creed, etc.

                    And hate is a very strong word that I try very hard not to use...even in jest....because I believe it plants a seed within the mindset that is hard to uproot, even if it's meant lightly.....

                    Don't take me wrong, VD...I'm not judging you or your comments, they just got me thinking, that's all...;)
