The number of people applying for arms is increasing year after year in the city, but now they are more people who want to make guns a means of employment instead of avoiding enemies. In the five months from January 1 to May, 40 such applications have come to the police. The police have recommended for grant of arms license to these applicants.

It also includes many ex-army men and retired soldiers from the para-military force. Overall, about 30 percent of applicants want to get a gun for employment.

At present 29575 people have arms in Gwalior district.
