As some of you are aware the Ministry of Home Affairs is planning on amending the existing Arms policy and this will make things worse than they already are for all of us who love guns & shooting and who wish to live in a truly free country! In case you are unaware of the proposed changes, kindly take a look at the document titled “Proposed Arms and Ammo Policy” which is available at http://www.mha.nic.in/pdfs/DAAM-PolicyIndividuals-211209.pdf
