Rahoul Rai and Abhijeet Singh of the National Association of Gun Rights India (NAGRI) talk to Cam Edwards about the mission of their group and the status of firearm freedoms in India. The men explain that while Indian law provides for "shall issue" rights to gun ownership under the Arms Act of 1959, ordinary citizens are frequently denied firearms and forced to appeal to the judicial system. Now the government is looking to pass a new Arms Act that would downgrade gun ownership rights to "may issue" status. Rai and Singh discuss the government's stance that guns contribute to crime and terrorism, and they examine the role that a well-armed citizenry could have played to thwart violent incidents like the terrorist attacks in Mumbai.
