[JURIST] Kuwait will begin cracking down on illegal weapon possession after an amnesty period ends on Thursday. In February, Kuwait passed a law [Ain Al Yaqeen overview] giving police broad powers to search for unlicensed weapons. The law allows the police to more easily obtain search warrants to look for weapons in private residences and allows women officers to search female living quarters that male officers must avoid under Islamic law. About 3,700 weapons have been turned over so far. Reuters has more.
