Looks like there’s a growing Right to Keep and Bear Arms movement in India. The second most populous country on the planet:
A 38-year-old software engineer, Singh founded the web forum,Â Indiansforguns.com, which brought these Sunday afternoon firearm fans together. But in late 2009, his hobby took on a new urgency when the home ministry proposed several amendments to India’s 1959 Arms Act that would make it much more difficult to get a gun license and harder to buy ammunition. Already an old hand in disseminating editorials and raising petitions, Singh soon joined forces with another group â€” the National Association for Gun Rights India (NAGRI) â€” that’s modeled on America’sÂ National Rifle Association and led by Haryana’s Naveen Jindal, a member of parliament who studied in Texas.
This has to have IANSA crapping their pants. I think it’s funny it’s a software engineer behind it. Computer people seem to have a particular disdain for nanny state policies in my experience, though that’s not as true today as I think it was a decade ago.
