This man’s licence to carry a firearm should be forthwith revoked for threatening behaviour. I do not see why he was allowed to carry firearms when carrying firearms have been banned. Politicians, especially of his ilk, should be banned from carrying weapons. I hope his licence is revoked and all his firearms taken away from him. Neither should his private bodyguards be allowed to carry weapons. We should have a country free of firearms, except for the defence and security services.
