There is a Certain Tactical Advantage

I can see some possibilities for a clandestine uprising in this story out of Saudi Arabia. Imagine a Virtue Cop stepping up to harass a woman, but said woman takes a gun out of her hijab and shoots the cop. Then she drops the gun mob style and disappears into a crowd of similarly concealed women.

There is a certain flavorful irony in taking advantage of the rules the state sanctioned thugs are charged to enforce to make them afraid.
