In a 2008 interview, editor Sir Anthony Killalot retorted with the following quote: of teens are shot every week in the third most dangerous area alone.
The guns that were given to them has nothing to do with anything. If they want to stop shooting each other they can easily return the guns to us by filling out a simple ten-page form, then calling our premium-rate helpline in India to arrange a drop-off point.
