Mumbai Massacre Proves Gun Control Works–for Terrorists

by Bill Levinson
The recent massacre in Mumbai underscores the effectiveness of gun
control laws such as those supported by Dianne Feinstein, Barack
Obama, Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg, the Brady Campaign, the Violence
Policy Center, and others. India’s strict gun control laws were quite
effective in killing more than a hundred innocent citizens and police
officers, per “India Security Faulted as Survivors Tell of Terror.”

B.S. Sidhu, head of the Railway Protection Force for the Mumbai
region, says that while some officers tried to fight back, there was
little his force could do. Most police officers at the station — as
they are throughout India — were unarmed or carried only bamboo sticks
known as lathis.

Lesson #1: Don’t bring a bamboo stick to a gunfight.

At about 9:45 p.m., two gunmen, slender and in their mid-20s,
ran up the circular driveway at the entrance to the Trident. They shot
the security guard and two bellhops. 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…

Lesson #2: Terrorists and criminals don’t obey gun control laws.

The three policemen armed with guns drew them. The nine others
waved their bamboo sticks. Revving the engine, the car tried to U-turn
but got stuck on the median. The man in the passenger seat rolled out
and started shooting, killing one officer and wounding another. The
surviving baton-wielding officers jumped on him, knocking him
unconscious. Policemen with guns shot the driver dead.

Lesson #1, repeated: Don’t bring a bamboo stick to a gunfight.
We have seen just how well gun control laws worked out for the
innocent people of Mumbai, and perhaps it is time for the citizens of
New York City, Washington DC, and Chicago to learn from the example
and demand the repeal of their cities’ gun laws.
