Modi urged to review plan on licensed arms


Modi urged to review plan on licensed arms

Chandigarh, November 29

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has urged the Centre not to reduce the number of firearms permissible on a licence from three to one in Punjab in view of the sensitive location and troubled history of the state.

Amarinder has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking a review of a proposal of the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to amend the Arms Act, 1959, thereby restricting the number of firearms from three to one. The Chief Minister said Punjab being a border state and having gone through a long period of terrorist violence, a large number of people possessed more than one firearm and many farmers who resided away from villages in their farms, also possessed firearms for crop protection. Therefore, it was significant to note that only a small fraction of crime was committed using licensed weapons. — TNS
