Parliament session in Jordan turns more violent after members started firing between disputes

Violence during talk sessions in Parliaments is something that the common man has been hearing about since the very beginning, but what happens when this violence turns into gun firing among the members of the Parliament itself. In such situations the limits of insecurity rises to a new level when the lawmakers themselves are taking law in their hands.
Jordan Parliamentary sessions have always led the race of violence, however in the recent Parliament talks one of the members Talal Sharif got into dispute with one of the fellow colleague. The dispute increased to such extent that Talal Sharif took out an automatic rifle and actually charged after the other member in the halls of the Parliament trying to shoot him, however, before an angered Talal could aim properly at his target he was overpowered by the officials. The shootout at the Parliament not only had brought disgrace for Parliamentary sessions, but also brought the security under the scanner. At the moment Talal Sharif has been arrested on charges of possessing unlicensed weapon, not cooperating with the officials, disturbing public order and above all charged with attempt to murder. If convicted MP Talal Sharif would have to face 15 years in jail. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
