Dear Officer,

I am the owner of a gold jewelry store in the city. My family not only sells jewelry but also distributes gold items to several jewelers of the city. Consequently, my family members have to travel frequently with cash and jewelry.

With increasing incidents of theft in the city and attacks on several businessmen during the past one month, my family and I feel the need to procure a license for a gun. Last week, we also received a letter threatening dire consequences if we did not pay money to a certain gang. I have attached a copy of the letter. I trust that police department acts rapidly in such cases, however, time is of essence when a thief strikes.

My family and I are responsible residents of the area and have always followed the law. I will keep the weapon either in my personal possession or in a secured locker where no other individual, including my family members, can access it. 

Sincerely yours,

Sartaj Singh Sidhu.
