Licenses for those over 60 to be cancelled?

Postby SMJ » Sat Aug 12, 2017 3:50 pm

Overheard in a gun shop- a customer telling the owner that licenses for those over 60 will be automatically be cancelled....any truth to this?

Secondly the gun shop owner who is known to me for sometime also mentioned that according to his lawyer if the new Arms Rules did not get approval in both houses of parliament it is deemed to have been PASSED....yes this is correct- PASSED- I asked him if he was sure of this as I remember a discussion here which concluded that the new Arms Rules if not approved by both houses is deemed to be LAPSED....GBM, Abhijeet - would you gentlemen be able to throw any light on this??

May not be official but they have been doing that for sometime. In Hyderabad, they asked my dad to dispose of the gun as he was over seventy then.

Thanks Vikram...that's ridiculous though...if someone is medically fit and sound of mind then on what basis are they doing it- just old age Some elderly gents and ladies I know are are way fitter than people in their 30s even...also does this rule apply to the politicians, a lot of whom already have one foot in the grave or is it just for the ordinary folk?

It is an underhand tactic to dissuade people and disarm the citizens. This must be seriously opposed.

Section 44(3) of Arms Act 1959 very clearly says every Arms Rule made needs approval from both houses of Parliament. The new Arms Rules has not been approved by Parliament till last time I checked but the government was implementing it! De jure Arms Rules 1962 is applicable, de facto the lapsed Arms Rules 2016 is being illegally forced. So much for the rule of law in this country! So, are we a nation of criminals being governed by criminals. What else is new?

Thanks GBM for clarifying so legally speaking it is not in effect as of now but being implemented nevertheless. What a sad state of affairs
