The bureaucracy

Indian bureaucracy makes sure that the usless gun restrictions in India only get stronger but an effect that makes on us is that the average person has to pay bribe to buy guns for his own protection whilst the criminal like in 99% of the cases goes on to buy an illegal firearm (cause they have no record and serial numbers and all).

Imagine this, had the girl in Nirbhaya rape case had a gun the story would have been different all those shop owners who die during robberies all those girls who are walking on dangerous streets unarmed if the criminals knew that citizens too could be armed, there would definitely be less crime.

In my opinion the union of India can never truly make sure that we are safe at all times BUT we CAN! all we need is proper infrastructure, unlike the British we should trust our people (except for sensitive areas) and give them their Right to protection of life and Right to bear arms. We once had right to bear arms but the british restricted it after the 1857 revolt should follow the same path as the british?

Atal Ji reportedly said and I quote,

  • “The present Bill seeks to repeal the Indian Arms Act enacted by the British rulers eighty years ago with a view to disarm the whole nation. Apart from the consideration of safeguarding the Empire, this policy of depriving the whole people of arms was motivated in the main by a sense of deep distrust and an attitude of contempt towards the Indian people. I am sorry to note that even after twelve years of independence, the present Government have not been able to shake off completely the legacy of their predecessors. The present Bill as by the Joint Committee is an improvement on the original Bill no doubt, but traces of this distrust linger still, and restrain the Bill from going as far as it should. Hence this note of dissent.
  • “The right to bear and carry arms is an inviolable and sacred right of every free citizen and though this has not been included in the list of fundamental rights enumerated in the Indian Constitution, the right of self defence accepted and guaranteed by the Indian Penal Code implicitly acknowledges the right to possess arms. Since India is not in a position to run into a race of armaments with big powers, or their satellites, surrounding our boundaries and having hostile and expansionist designs against us, the only course open for us is to arm our people and make military training compulsory for all adults and able-bodied citizens….
  • “….The present Bill seeks to liberalise the licensing provisions, but the liberalisation is very halting, the procedure of securing a license still remains irksome and dilatory and the license-seeker left to the whims and caprice of the bureaucracy….”
