Why we are being victimized

Post by Mr.Shome » Wed Dec 11, 2019 12:31 am

Dear Friends,

This continuous trend of anti-gun legislations is the fault of the majority of the Indians with an under-exposed ,slavish, and extremely myopic (read, toad in the well) kind of world view. For the majority, a gun is a stigma (associated with silly violent movies).

They are more ingrained with communal issues such as Ram Temple and Citizenship Amendment Bill. They are least interested in Gun Rights, and are foolish enough to believe that the Government is doing an awesome job by depriving spirited people off licenses.

On a lighter note, if the Britons could colonize us and others (despite being in a minority), can't we do the same?

Regards,

You are absolutely right, Mr Shome. A misplaced horror of weapons, which existed in the minds of the public, has been exacerbated by the media stereotypes of gun-toting dacoits and rapacious landlords riding into villages and cowing down and terrorizing the innocent populace. Common-sense suggests that the villains could have been driven off or accounted for by a few armed villagers.

Dear Sir,

Sorry for such a delayed reply to your awesome response. Common sense seems to be a priceless treasure nowadays, perhaps, more so amongst the high number of naive and gullible people of our country. Reminds of a biographical-kind of account, 'The Last White Hunter'. It's a book on Late Donald Anderson (son of the famous hunter, Late Kenneth Anderson). I kind of find parallels with Donald's gradual deterioration in life and the way things are going overall nowadays.

Disclaimer for everyone: I have no commercial interest in promoting the book, only interested in sharing thoughts with possibly like-minded people here :)

Best regards,
