Letter Published in The National UAE on 24Oct 17, Japanese election result is a win for Asia Abe sweeps to big win in Japan (October 23) was a good development for Asia. Shinzo Abe’s victory at the polls may bring peace and stability, it should inject some common sense into the North Korea nuclear stand-off and also encourage good bilateral relationships with India on trade, terror and other issues. Kudos to Mr Abe.K.Ragavan, India
On the one hand I applaud the interest of the American government for issuing gun licences to their citizens for their personal safety, but on the other hand, this gun culture is not being utilised properly for the interest of the people (“US gun lobby agrees to examine ‘bump stocks’ after Las Vegas massacre”, Gulf News, October 8). It leads to more innocent lives being lost, which is unacceptable. We have been seeing the lives of innocent civilians being taken by the ‘gun culture’ in many public places, and it is increasing day by day. Mainly because of the attitudes and nature of the gun holders, many are in the possession of illegal weapons. My appeal to President Donald Trump’s administration is to completely eradicate the menace of issuing gun licences to their people, not just for the safety of the American people, but also for visiting expatriates. Will the present administration take this call?
