A special team should be made called. Something like elite force of Karachi. They shoot the target killers on sight. At the moment the rangers aint doing nothing.. someone was telling me the target killers came at Garden area in karachi, Shot 2 people dead while the ranger personnel were standing on the opposite side of the road. They started shooting in the air and the target killers ran away on their bikes.

Let's make obtaining arms legaly easier. people will defend themselves. Right now armless common man is an easy prey with no protection. Possesing arms for defence is our constitional right. Hope some one take this issue to court. government is only making things difficult for common man while illegal arms is in abundance for criminals.
