Indian Women & Guns: What I took from the Alex Jones InterviewSubmitted by jrd3820 on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 21:39
While the Alex Jones debacle caused quite a stir here, there was one thing he said that made me do some more research. Alex discussed how women in India are trying to get guns after the brutal and deadly rape that happened in December. I had been following the story as best I as I could, but of course few news outlets point out that the women there would like to have guns.
I found this article on it. Thought I would share.
In the article one officer says that he has to turn women down for their right to have guns because apparently your life has to already be in "clear and present danger" to have access to a gun (at least from what I understood of the article). Seems like simply being a female does put your life in clear and present danger over there.
To the female members on this site (the few and far between), if you have not been paying much attention to this story it is pretty heartbreaking but I think it is important.
