We have a saying in Hijaz: اللي تعرف ديتو، إقتلو**. The Diyah is the death penalty money, though this time its pretty literal.
Sure thing! Let’s make it a whole lot easier for people to kill each other in this desert. We’d expect the dimmer half to wipe themselves out but we’ll proly end up like Idiocracy.
I mean, really, what are we worried about? We wont need the police anymore, everyone can fend for themselves this way! We won't need the army either, with all the militias we just facilitated their weapon acquiring.
Your daughter/sister has gone astray? She fell in love you say? Worry not! With a shiny new gun only a drive away, your honor shall me restored in no time!
Angry teenager? Hate your teachers? Why trash their car when you can get a gun. Can’t stand the two faced society which condemns your every act? Well, Tony Montana, they can all say hello to your little friend!

** اللي تعرف ديتو، إقتلو literally translates to: whoever you know their Diyah, kill them.
