I have a question, I want to apply for a 12 bore license(gun belongs to my uncle) - what reason do I state in my application form?. I am not a big time business man but still can I write self defence? I am not a member of the local shooting club and dont plan to become one because it costs Rs 1lakh plus. I would be greatful for guidance received.
Do you think only life of "big time businessmen" have value to have the right to defend their lives and lives of other people have no value? People acquire arms to defend themselves from any random act of violence. Also no need to be a member of shooting club to acquire an arms license for self defense. Self defense is a part of Right to Life, guaranteed by Constitution of India to all persons(please refer recent judgment of High Court at viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9847&start=15) What more better reason reason do you want other than self defense. It is your right, so go ahead and apply.
