Review the Oppresive Firearm Act: Nigerians should own Guns without legal impediments
The Nigerian firearms act of 1990 is one of the most reprehensible laws of Nigeria as seen at the website http://www.nigeria-law.org/Firearms%20Act.htm.
This law snatches the power to bear arms and self defense from citizens and empowers religious fanatics and extremists who have killed thousands of Nigerians. Of note is the Boko haram insurgency which targets peaceful law-abiding citizens. Armed robbery attacks are on the increase. Militancy, religious fundamentalism and kidnapping are the order of the day.
There is mounting evidence that outlaws abound when they know that their targets are unable to defend themselves.
It is imperative that Nigerians be allowed to enforce their rights to life. Right to life and Freedom from oppression is guaranteed in the Nigerian constitution. Only an armed person can be free.
We the undersigned call on the Nigerian Federal House of Representatives and the Nigerian Senate to repeal the Firearms Act of 1990 and Enact a Law that Allows Nigerians the right to own Firearms without any legal impediment.
