In today’s scenario, guns have become a very common thing for people. Now everyone wants to own a licensed gun with themselves just keeping the security in mind.
There are many celebrities who owned the licensed gun at least once in their lifetime. Though they carry bodyguards with them, at some point they are alone too. And for that time they need guns. Here are some celebrities who owned the guns:
The megastar of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan started keeping the licensed gun after the terrorist attack of 26/11 that led the whole nation into the shock. Earlier, before this incident, he used to carry the most carefree attitude. After the incident, he also tweeted, “Before retiring for the night, I pulled out my licensed 32 revolver, loaded it and put it under my pillow.”
Soha Ali Khan
Soha Ali Khan owned a licensed rifle in the year 1996 only, but her license for the same got canceled due to her tender age. Her license was issued from Gurgaon (Gurugram). Now she is not holding any gun or rifle, as she does not believe in the weapon world.
Sunny Deol, the man of “Dhai Kilo Ka Haath” too owns a licensed gun. He not only owns the gun but had also used the same in one of his movies, “Singh Saab The Great.”
Poonam Dhillon, the beauty of her time and the Femina Miss India also holds a licensed gun, but she does not carry it along with her. According to the actress, the gun is for safety purpose and should be kept at home. It should not be carried in the public places because it can be misused.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni
The famous Indian cricketer, M.S. Dhoni wanted a 9mm gun for which he applied, but his application got rejected. Later, after trying a lot he got the licensed for the same in the year 2010. Today he owns a licensed gun. Apart from owning, he also took the shooting classes at Police Training School in Kolkata.
Sakshi Dhoni, wife of the former captain of Indian Cricket team, M.S. Dhoni also applied for the pistol or 32 revolver, stating the reason as the safety. She usually stays at home all alone and she needs some security and for the same, she needs either a revolver or a pistol.
One of the famous Bollywood Director, Madhureeta Anand also owns a licensed gun. Not only this, she has also taken the shooting classes. Not only this, she is also having experience with an attacker. She warded him off by her reflex action only.
One of the Khan from Bollywood, Salman Khan owns two guns. He is having 22 rifle as well as 32 revolver. He used these arms in the hunting in the year 1998. It is the same hunting case under which Salman Khan is on trial.
Sanjay Dutt also had an AK-56 rifle with him. This arm only led him into the trouble that resulted in his arrest in the year 1994. He was arrested because of having some link to the Mumbai Serial Bomb Blast in the tera 1993.
Having arms is a good thing when concerned with the security. But using it for the wrong means will always lead you in trouble. Few celebrities carry them for the security purpose and are having no issues. Whereas other who had misused the same are in trouble.
