In Nigeria, gun ownership is prohibited. So, only the bad guys have them. From Sun News Online:
Will the Nigerian Government stand idly and watch as armed hoodlums decimate Ni¬≠gerians in their thousands before it can do the needful to legalize individual firearms own¬≠ership under certain regulations? My take is that the Nigerian Government must liberal¬≠ize firearms ownership in Nigeria as one way of safeguarding right to life since the armed forces and police have proved seriously chal¬≠lenged and unable to be everywhere to pro¬≠tect the lives of Nigerians and the constitu¬≠tion makes it imperative that the security and welfare of every citizen is the primary duty of government. A stitch in time saves nine.
