License is a must. Those who covertly use locally made gun is also doing it illegally. If caught, he will have to be behind the bars for two to ten years.

Even licensed guns can be used only for self-protection or else it will be a criminal offence. Having said that, each Collectorate continues to get at least 20 applications a month for gun license.
