India Wants Less People And Licensed Firearm Ownership

In a recent article titled Gun culture spreads in India, the L.A. Times Reports:

Despite tough controls on weapons, Indians own about 40 million guns, the second-highest number in the world. Of those, 85% are unregistered Saturday-night specials involved in 90% of firearm homicides. That said, there are only 3 guns for every 100 people in India, compared with 89 guns per 100 Americans, the world leaders, according to gunpolicy.org.

The Team American song immediately started going through my head when I read that statistic.

As gun culture spreads, local governments have offered to fast-track firearms licenses if men have vasectomies. Families include firearms in dowries. And authorities have discouraged celebratory gunfire at weddings after several accidents, including the recent death of a bridegroom when his uncle’s revelry shots went terribly wrong.

People do that for a fast-tracked license?   They should throw a gun in the mix to sweeten the deal.  I bet there would be a lot of Indians walking around with tiger striped .50AE DEAGLES if they had their choice.  Actually scratch that, they would want the elusive .50 BMG Deagle.

“89 guns per 100 Americans.”
America Fuck Yeah indeed.
If guns kill people, several million are already defective.

Is anyone reminded by this whole “guns for vasectomies” deal of the 1970s Sean Connery cult scifi film “Zardoz.” Y’know, the whole “penis is evil, it creates life… the gun is good it destroys life” quote from the opening scene. In the film its used like population control, kinda like what’s happening in India.

…I’m starting to understand why I don’t have a girlfriend.

You have to understand why you would want to remember “penis is evil, “it creates life… the gun is good it destroys life” before you state why you don’t have a girlfriend. Maybe if you bought a firearm you’d have better luck…

I can put a gun in a kitchen and it will stay there, but it sure as hell won’t cook me breakfast, especially when I want pancakes. Good women > Good guns.

Because a giant floating head yelled it at Sean Connery and then vomited guns at him. Also, Connery’s outfit in the film, it’s the stuff of nightmares.

YOU TRY AND FORGET THAT

I still think the gun is better.
If your gun is too loud, you can put a suppressor on it.

You can put a suppressor on a woman, it’s called a fist.

Well that came out a lot more tasteless than I intended.

Poppy just stop thinking about men with mustaches.

I can’t, Sean Connery’s outfit is like one of those authentic photos of Auschwitz. It’s so horrible you can’t forget it. It burns itself into your brain and haunts you for the rest of your life.

Google Image “Sean Connery Zardoz” and THEN tell me to stop thinking about it. It’s not so easy.

You keep talking about it, so it must not bother you. Instead of a GF, have you thought about a BF w/ mustache?

Poppy February 26, 2012 at 05:45 pm

How about I meet you halfway and get a GF w/ mustache?

Man… I didn’t get ANYTHING when I had my vasectomy. And Zardoz rules!
