Angolan police have collected 85,000 weapons from civilians as part of a disarmament plan that began in 2009, Radio Nacional de Angola reported, citing Paulo de Almeida, the deputy commander of the police public order unit.

De Almeida said he believed there was still a “large number” of weapons in the hands of civilians following an almost three-decade civil war that ended in 2002, the state- owned radio station said on its website.

    That is a ridiculous idea. When has gun control ever helped the public. The criminals both inside and outside of the country are going to see this as easy pickings.
