    Do these quotes sound familiar?

    "We are outraged. We are not murderers. Instead of going after real criminals, the government is indulging in window dressing by bringing in gun control laws that target law-abiding citizens who have licensed guns," said Abhijeet Singh, 37, a software engineer....

    "We want to remove the stigma on licensed gun owners," Singh said.

    "An armed society is a polite society," said Rahoul Rai....

    But unfortunately they have people without any knowledge of history in India as well:

    "There is no place for a gun rights movement in India," said Julius Ribeiro, a former police officer who comments on security issues. "That kind of debate may work in America, but it will not work here, because laws are misused and guns can easily fall into the wrong hands. It can get dangerous in India."

    We've already figured out the rhetoric for them. All they have to do is choose a side.

    Quote from the India article....

    To illustrate the point, gun advocates refer to a 2008 incident in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The clamor for gun licenses was so high, according to news media, that officials tried to induce men with large families to participate in a vasectomy program by promising a license in return.

    I Had a vasectomy yrs ago.I can send proof if required.

    I WANT MY CCPERMIT NOW!
    A citizen may not be required to offer a ―good and substantial reason-- why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The rights existence is all the reason he needs.

    Mahtma Ghandi:
    “Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.”

    We have an open carrier up here in Washington who open carried before he found the forum who is Indian. And he gives a %15 percent discount to open carriers who come into his Restaurant.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Indian: Why do you carry a gun?

    Another Indian: Because a tiger is too heavy.
