These are the results of a snapshot study conducted in districts of South Punjab including Multan, Muzafargarh, Rajanpur and DG Khan by IANSA members at Awaz Foundation Pakistan: Centre for Development Services.

At least 65% of respondents reported that their husband kept a gun at home and thought that the gun was held illegally; 33% thought that the gun in the home was licensed and legal; and 2% did not know. Some respondents mentioned that although their husband did not own a gun, he had easy access to one from a friend, relative or neighbour.
