Abstract

To keep the peace and order in a country, the government sets a set of rules and laws. The defence and security forces safeguard the country from both foreign and domestic threats. These groups are armed with firearms and have the legal right to maintain order and security in the state by using reasonable force or, in extreme situations, excessive force. In India, weapons and ammunition are strictly controlled and are available only to the armed services and law enforcement agencies. However, there are strict regulations on the usage and possession of firearms in private hands. “The Arms Act of 1959 prohibits the unlicensed sale, manufacture, possession, acquisition, import, export, and transit of firearms and ammunition”, and is the primary piece of gun control legislation in the country. To prevent any form of rebellion or mutiny against the British rulers, the British initially imposed gun control laws in India to restrict Indians from holding firearms.
