Lebanon to tighten gun control
Lebanon has witnessed years of civil war and internal fighting. Lately, Lebanon is facing a phenomenon that surpasses any political agreement or even disagreement. The ownership of personal guns has become something that many take for granted.
Three incidents in the last month led to the killing of several people in one family as a result of feuds, and others in mysterious circumstances. In one of those incidents a pump-action shot gun was used to kill a mother and her five children. This has caused alarm in Lebanese society not to mention the presence of armed gangs which also misuse arms to rob or even kidnap. Despite the fact that there is a law which organizes the selling and owning of arms, almost no citizen knows about this law.
