India and the Second Ammendment

Ive mentioned the problem India has of thousands of people being killed every year by snakes. Now we read that people in India are being terrorized by monkeys:

http://www.redorbit.com/news/oddities/759131/court_reprimands_new_delhi_over_monkeys/index.html?source=r_oddities


Quote:

NEW DELHI - A top court reprimanded authorities in the Indian capital for failing to stop hundreds of monkeys from terrifying residents, news reports said Thursday.

As forest cover around New Delhi has shrunk, the city has struggled with a growing simian population. Government buildings, temples and many residential neighborhoods are overrun by hundreds of Rhesus macaques. The animals will occasionally snatch food from unsuspecting passers-by and even bite them.

"If you can't control the monkeys, what can you do?" the Delhi High Court acerbically asked representatives of the various municipal authorities in a ruling responding to a petition filed by the harassed residents of a posh residential neighborhood. The court asked authorities to explain "what measures were being formulated to find a permanent solution to the monkey menace in the capital."

City authorities weren't immediately available for comment....



These problems do not exist in a nation whose people are armed. The second ammendment is an idea whose time has come, all over the world, and not just in America.

Here's my suggestion for the people of India:

http://nas4.atlanta.gbhinc.com/GB/062072000/62072040/pix1192665704.jpg

That's called a "Saiga", and is basically a civilian AK47. It's sold in America for $200 - 300 and could almost certainly be bought in quantities from Russia for a hundred bucks apiece, new. It's decently made and the barrel is chrome lined, and the short barrel would be rigid enough to be accurate at least to 150 meters or thereabouts, and hollow-point AK ammo would absolutely flatten a "macacca" or whatever you'd call the monkey in that picture.





Ishmash would be happy to sell you all of them you need.

Nor do they exist in a nation that is not overrun with monkeys.

Most Indians abhor killing anything, let alone shooting it with a gun.

in these "post michael richard (kramer) days", let me state that my tounge is planted firmly in cheek

gunga may have a point, his way of thinking sure cut down on the buffalo who were rampaging, and did a pretty good job of thinning out the indians

In that case, there is what we call the compound bow:

At some point, even in places like India, the survival instinct will kick in. Look for that to happen when the monkeys start killing people and eating them.

That was the stupidest thing the white man ever did in this country. Aside from any question of morality, elk and buffalo are natural beef animals for this continent and have none of the myriad problems which european cattle have here.

Yeah, India is well aware of the Bow and Arrow, I assure you.

The point is that they don't want to kill anything they don't have to...

that's right. a new breed of ferrocious man-eating monkeys!

and if they are not up to the task, they catch people and throw them to crocodiles!

If nothing else, cutting loose with an ak47 in a crowded town should do something for population density.

Why is Gunga Din worried about the right of Indians to keep and arm bears? Do they even have bears in India?

So you've got problems with the slaughter of elk and buffalo. You say it's the 'STUPIDEST thing the white man ever did in this country', but you mention nothing of the slaughter of the indians.

I just bought myself an Bushmaster AR-15 last week, I'm heading out in a little bit to put some holes in things. I'm just your typical agnostic, peace-loving, liberal, gun-owning American.

Sounds like youve just taken a first step away from being a liberal. What youll discover is that the UN wants to ban private ownership of weaponry of all sorts, all over the globe, that liberals generally support them, and that the M16 is too much fun to give up for the sake of such a gang of turkeys.

I was supposed to spend my life as a liberal-democrat. I mean, you couldnt easily find a republican in the neighborhoods where I grew up, and I was raised on a steady diet of democrat local politics, anti-war (vietnam) protests, and God knows what all else. It took me about seven or eight years of living out in the real world on my own to grow out of all that.

You dont ever "cut loose" with a semiautmatic weapon, nine times out of ten you wont hit anything. All youre talking about is being able to shoot eight or ten monkeys (aimed shots) without having to operate a bolt or lever action to slow you down. Youd want to attract the monkeys to one place with a pile of banannas or a stack of democrat campaign literature or something so you dont go firing off in odd directions.

Oh, I've owned guns for years. This is my 5th, my 1st assult rifle, but my 5th gun. I'm no closer to being conservative than I was 8 years ago when I bought my first gun. Actually ever since religion has taken over the republican party, I've been nothing but disgusted with them.

At least 40% of the reason I bought THIS gun was my distrust in our government. And let me tell you, I know at least 3 other liberal democrats that have bought guns for the same reasons.

The old monikers no longer apply.
