Hamas: Ban The Guns!

Hamas is talking peace. But buried in the story is a most interesting detail:

Security sources in Gaza have said that the Palestinian Authority has put together a security plan that will attempt to put an end to the illegal carrying of weapons on the Palestinian street.

Nabil Abu Rudeineh, who served as Arafat's spokesman for the past decade, also recently came out against the prevalent trend of illegally bearing arms. In an interview with al-Jazeera, Rudeineh said, "Both the Fatah and Hamas need to understand that this phenomenon will harm the Palestinians rather than strengthen them."
So the terrorists are afraid of "their" people getting guns! Now why is that?

Could it be that, when all the propaganda and chest-thumping in front of the Western Media is done, that those same people then go home knowing full well they'd be better off without Hamas and their like, and might actually try to enforce the results of a real election?
