Mumbai Terrorist Attacks – An Argument for Citizen Concealed-Carry of Personal Firearms?

December 3, 08

From Scott Wieser via Big Head Press:

So would the knowledge that any number of civilians might be carrying concealed guns and be trained to shoot deter potential attackers?

John R. Lott at FOX Forum seems to think so:

The Life-and-Death Cost of Gun Control

Banning guns is in the news. India practically bans guns, but that didn’t stop the horrific Muslim terrorist attacks this last week.

Given that the terrorists smuggled their machine guns in with them, would anyone argue that India’s extremely strict gun licensing and artificially high prices for guns helped prevent the terrorist attacks? In fact, the reverse is more likely the case.

In India, victims watched as armed police cowered and didn’t fire back at the terrorists. A photographer at the scene described his frustration: “There were armed policemen hiding all around the station but none of them did anything. At one point, I ran up to them and told them to use their weapons. I said, ‘Shoot them, they’re sitting ducks!’ but they just didn’t shoot back.”

Meanwhile, according to the hotel company’s chairman, P.R.S. Oberoi, security at “the hotel had metal detectors, but none of its security personnel carried weapons because of the difficulties in obtaining gun permits from the Indian government.”

India has extremely strict gun control laws, but who did it succeed in disarming?

The terrorist attack showed how difficult it is to disarm serious terrorists. Strict licensing rules meant that it was the victims who obeyed the regulations, not the terrorists.

The attack also illustrates what Israelis learned decades ago. — Putting more soldiers or police on the street didn’t stop terrorist’s machine gun attacks. Terrorists would either wait for the armed soldiers or police to leave the area or kill them first. Likewise, in India, the Muslim terrorists’ first targets were those in uniform (whether police or security guards).

Terrorists only stopped using machine guns to attack Israelis once citizens were allowed to carry concealed handguns. In large public gatherings, a significant number of citizens will be able to shoot at terrorists during an attack — and the terrorists don’t know who has them.

With mass shootings becoming more difficult, terrorists were forced to switch to a less effective strategy: bombs. Bombings are more difficult for armed citizens to stop because they can’t respond after the bomb blows up.

Still, even though handguns can only kill would-be bombers before they set off their bombs, during waves of terror attacks, Israel’s national police chief will call on all citizens who are allowed to carry guns to make sure they carry their firearms at all times, and Israelis have many examples where citizens with concealed handguns have saved lives.

Indian businesses are demanding gun rights:

Bangalore: The war on Mumbai has left the India Inc angry and vulnerable sectors want much more than a constable with a lathi.

“We’re losing faith in the political leadership of this country. There’s no doubt about that,” T V Mohandas Pai, director (HR), Infosys, adding, “To take care of the political class, they have Z-plus security. They have arms. What about us? Isn’t our life important? We’re citizens. The government is unable to protect us, then amend the law. Let us bear arms, we’ll protect ourselves to whatever extent we can”.

A worried Bangalore Inc said they’d rather have machine guns than be sitting ducks to a torrent of bullets.

While government installations have forces who can combat an emergency, the private sector has to make do with metal detectors, frisking and CCTV security.

The latest addition are sniffer dogs, which some organizations have opted for, but nothing that can combat an AK-47.

“We’ll not be in a position to answer these kinds of AK-47s and grenades. We need much stronger help from the government. And we’ll need military intervention. May be we could start some military patrolling at least, then there can be confidence that help can come at short notice,” chairman and MD, Biocon, Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw.

For the record, I was anti-guns until around the time that I learnt – up close and personal – more about what a selfish, apathetic and evil world it is out there.

Mumbai Terrorist Massacre – Jihadi Apologists and Imraan Khan Are Huge Morons

December 2, 08

While self-loving Bollywood holier-than-thous are enjoying the release of their movie in shirts like these:

Imran Khan huge moron

The real terrorists were slaughtering hundreds just a few blocks away.

Idiot? MAJOR IDIOT.

Yeah, I’m sure Bush would send his Blackwater assassins led by Darth Cheney to take you hostage, torture you to death, then drag your dead body across the floor:

Mumbai Jewish

Or was that just a photo of Islamic extremists handiwork in the very rare in Mumbai Jewish (not even Israeli) centre – including placing explosive traps on the dead bodies of the victims?

I really can’t tell, Bush and jihadi mujahideen are so alike, as Imraan Khan wholeheartedly believes.

The horrific, intentional targeting of Jews left another innocent victim (via Malkin, from Commentary):

Mumbai Jewish Moshe Holtzberg

Via Gateway Pundit:

Mumbai Jewish Moshe Holtzberg

Moshe Holtzberg, the couple’s two-year-old son, cried repeatedly for his mother during a memorial service in Mumbai yesterday.

Mumbai Jewish Moshe Holtzberg

Moshe was reportedly beaten by the terrorists. His mother was 6 months pregnant.

Imagine the pain of the child, Moshe Holtzberg, suddenly orphaned for no sensible reason whatsoever. The murderers are, IMHO, going straight to hell to roast for an eternity, plus fifty forevers for each laugh they uttered as they carried out their brutal inhumanity.

Bush. The real terrorist. Only to gianhugenormous utter morons like Imraan Khan.

But of course, I’m sure Imraan Khan will condemn the actual killers once he finds out who they really are. Not like this guy who praises the murder of local Indian Hindus as a blow against the ‘Crusades’.:

Outspoken Choudary, whose family live on £25,000-a-year benefits in London, raged: “Any Britons or Americans who visit Muslim countries are entering a battlefield and risk being used as hostages by al-Qaida to publicise its cause.”

He added: “The attacks bear all the hallmarks of a carefully planned al-Qaida operation as part of the global jihad against the crusades.”

(Never mind, of course, that 461 years of Islamic aggression preceded the First Crusade.)

Or these armchair jihadis in America and more:

It was pleasantly refreshing to hear they targeted Chabad Lubavitch. Allah will destroy His enemies wherever they are in the world. You will know when the Muslims have ignited in an insurrection when there is blood on the streets of London and New York like there is blood on the streets of Fallujah (and Mumbai). There is nowhere they can hide from the wrath of Allah and His soldiers.

Or the international media who even manage to rationalize the intentional seeking out and torture killings of Jews as ‘accidental’:

But how does the especially bloodthirsty attack on Mumbai’s Nariman-Chabad House fit into this puzzle palace?

The New York Times theorized that Chabad House may have been an “accidental hostage scene.” The BBC initially chose to hide the Jewish character of the target by describing it as just “an office building.” Al Jazeera refused to show Chabad House as the site of the carnage. Some Western media outlets unsympathetically labeled victims there as “ultra-Orthodox” or “missionaries.”

For the record, Muslim actor Imraan Khan’s ‘International Terrorist’ has brought peace to 50 million Muslims, who just happen to like Bush, thank you not at all you ignoram-ass.

Bush’s ‘International Terrorism’ has also protected the rest of us – yes, you who are reading this blog! – from our own daily Mumbai massacres… Or 9/11s… Or London Undergrounds… Or Southern Thailand beheadings… Or Indonesia beheadings… Or Bali bombings… By killing more than 23,000 terrorists in Iraq.

Oh wait, did I say Mumbai massacre? It’s not important that innocent civilians died there at the hands of extremist Muslim nutcases. No, what’s important is that it reminds us about all the bad things to Muslims anywhere else.

Progressives of course choose to blame everyone but the actual culprits. Who would, you know… Slit their necks if they ever tried it. So who can blame spineless silver spoon liberal entertainment types?

Mumbai Diveristy Lane

But wait! News flash! Of course! This explains it all!

Extremists fighting in the name of Islam weren’t to blame for the Mumbai massacre. No, of course they aren’t.

It was the Hindus who did it in order to manipulate us all. Or maybe it was the Hindu Zionists from Mossad.

Really! Just like how Bush planned and carried out 9/11 all by himself. Truth!

MoonbatBlamethrower2

Absolute twoof!

Go get stoned on your drugs and booze, you fantasy world morons. Like your American Moonbat counterparts who believed electing Obama would solve all the world’s problems instantly with Hope and pizie dust.
