INDIA PRODUCES FIRST GUN FOR WOMEN TO CURB RAPE


 
Rape happens in India every 22 minutes, according to a recent study. And that horrifying issue will forever be decried in our society, country and in the world world at large. But is snuffing life out of a fellow human being the panacea to curb incessant rape cases? Some manufacturers in The India Ordinance Factory think so and taking cues from the US firearms industry, they've produced India's first gun for women.

The pink lady gun also called "Nirbheek" was named after a 23 year-old who died weeks after she was gang-raped in Delhi, in December 2012. The 500 gram light-weight gun is small, light and can "fit into a lady's purse". Manufacturers strongly believe guns are "empowering" and more importantly, women alone are responsible for keeping their aggressors away. Other studies have also shown that women with guns in the home are more likely to be murdered than if there were no guns.
