The Yemeni authorities have seized about 75,000 pieces of arms across Yemen during the first half of 2012.
In a statement, the Interior Ministry affirmed that all security and military units take part in implementing a plan to ban weapon carrying inside the cities.
The Yemeni government started a campaign a against weapon carrying in major cities five years ago, but it was suspended in 2011 due to the political settlement and the demonstrations broken out across Yemen's major cities.
The Interior Ministry sought to pass a rule that organize the possession of arm carrying, but it was faced with many obstructions.
Though Yemenis live on less than two dollars a day, Yemen has the second most heavily armed population in the world, unofficial statistics say.
An average civilian casualty rate of about 4000 people per year due to gun violence, the statics say.
Yemen's interior ministry estimates there are about 60 million firearms in Yemen, or about three for every citizen. Government efforts to take weapons out of peoples' hands have been unsuccessful.
The Interior Ministry has declared a ban on weapons carrying inside cities, but armed men are still seen roaming with AK-47 assault rifles, hunting rifles and pistols inside Sana'a streets.
The Yemeni capital, Sana'a, and other major cities have witnessed a state of loose security as crimes of killing and weapon carrying increased after a year of pro-democracy protests that swept the country.
