KARACHI: The Sindh Assembly on Friday unanimously approved the Sindh Emergency Procurement Bill 2014, Express News reported.

The bill enables law enforcement agencies to purchase weapons and other equipment for emergency situations within a day.

The Sindh Emergency Procurement Bill 2014 -- which was passed on a temporary basis for the period of one year -- permits law enforcers to bypass normal authorities on the basis of an emergency.

The procurement of weapons and equipment is a lengthy process and, when done through the normal authorities, it can take three to five months.

The assembly passed the bill to ensure the security of law enforcers.

So your telling me that your law enforcement wasn't able to procure weapons without this law -- you must be joking.
