“‘Times of India’ on 1st Jan 2013 published this news titled ‘A Rush for Firearms’. It says ‘Police in Delhi have received 274 requests for Gun licences and 1,200 inquiries from women since December 18’. As we read this news, a question may arise in our hearts, ‘Can Guns really save us’? Can the firearms give us complete security that we desperately yearn for?” asks Mrs Sumithra Jayaraj in this article in The CALL.
