यह आपका ही प्यार है जो मैं अब इतनी हिम्मत करने लगा हूँ कि आप से पूछ सकू कि आप इस बारे में क्या बिचार रखते है ? मैं यह समझ सकता हूँ कि मेरा रुख उग्र भी हो सकता है, मगर मै यदि गलत हूँ तो सही राह दिखलाना आप लोगो का फर्ज बनता है, क्योंकि आप सब एक विवेकशील समाज से संबद्ध है ! मैं आप से पूछना चाहता हूँ कि मेरे एक ख़ास दोस्त के निम्नाकित विचार है, सवाल मेरा आपसे यह है कि बढ़ती असुरक्षा और लोकतंत्र की विफलता के चलते क्या मेरे इस दोस्त के विचार सही है, अथवा गलत, आप अपनी राय दीजिये ;
"If carrying guns is made mendatory condition for citizenship, India's quality of life and level of decency in public life will soar while crime will plummet.
Bus and bank robbery , train hold ups, purse snatching, eve teasing will become things of the past.
Guns not only give you power, it changes your whole attitude.
Gun represents power. Better guns better power.
More guns more power.
It is easy to control and rule powerless people.
Knowledge is power and historically it had been restricted to a chosen few , so that ignorant masses can be easily governed.
Free press is power and therefore despotic rulers don't like free press because if people don't know , they don't act.
Politicians love to talk about empowering people by giving them voting power, which they know is almost meaningless, given the absence of education about voting and also looking at how the politicians have been successfull in manipulationg voters.
Give them guns and people become responsible. When they start thinking the cost of their actions in terms of their life, they educate themselves fast.
When people say, no guns for the people, in effect they are saying, no power for the people.
There is no need to panic at the mere mention of gun.
Guns don't kill people, people do."
