Why on earth will the government allow these heartless people to move about with heavy weapons? Every one knows how to use the gun, that we are quite doesn’t make us cowards. Government should as a matter of urgency disarm them now. Cattle rearing is a private business it is a taboo for one to use his business to destroy another mans business.
