    Unitl we reach that happy day you suggest when there will be NO guns on EITHER side, I suggest that weapons only be held by government organizations: not by settlers, not by non-government Palestinian factions, or anyone else. This is the problem: anyone with any ideology congruent or not congruent with the government can carry arms, whether it be settlers or members of self-appointed militias, and anyone can take the law into their own hands. As long as Abbas is not in sole control of all weapons his forces should not have guns either. If his forces are responsible enough to trusted with weapons, let them also be responsible enough for gathering all weapons in the PA. There needs to be ONE arny and ONE government. The same goes for our side: ONLY the IDF can carry weapons. Until then we have something equivalent of the wild west.
