Indian Rapists Under the Gun?

The days when Kerala/ Indian woman illegally carried unauthorized goodies like the safety pins, the razor blade and the hot chilly spray, in their vanity bags to fend off the indecent advancements from lust indiced male-beasts are over.  They can go now legal, carry a revolver with them, wield it in public against the offenders and even finish them off by just pulling its trigger.  Not a comic scene in the Mollywood movies. The government of India has launched a gun, first of its kind, for female users on 6 January 2014.  Manufactured by the Indian Ordnance Factory, at Kanpur, named Nirbheek (fearless) as a tribute to the December 2012 Delhi rape victim, Nirbhaya, it is government's one solution to the not subsiding rape problem in the country.
