ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues related to increase in crime rate in the U.S. The main reason for the increase in crime rate is the easy availability of handguns in the country. The primary function of every government should be to make the society a safe place to live in. The article suggests some steps which individuals may take to protect themselves. Keeping loaded pistols in home increases the possibility of tragedy involving family members. But the possession of handguns reduces the fear factor among the people and thus increasing their quality of life.
