  • Delhi gun owners told to prevent rapes

    GUN owners should roam the streets at night and use their weapons to prevent crimes against women, Delhi's lieutenant governor has said, in the wake of the brutal gang rape and murder of a student in the capital.

    Tejendra Khanna, who heads the national capital's police department, on Friday urged gun-owning residents to put their weapons to "social service" and scare away potential molesters, The Indian Express reported on Saturday.

    "Gun owners with licences must roam lonely spots like bus stands each night and if they spot someone harassing a woman, they should use their weapon to stop the crime," the federal administrator said in a speech.

    "They can at least spend an hour or so every day with their friends in public after nightfall," Khanna said, according to the Indian Express.

    The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party condemned Khanna's remarks, saying "citizens should not be advised to take their law into their own hands in any situation".

    The Geneva-based Small Arms Survey estimates India is home to 40 million civilian-owned firearms of an estimated 650 million worldwide.

    Just 6.3 million Indian arms are registered.

    Khanna's remarks came as Indian President Pranab Mukherjee said in a Friday speech that the December 16 attack on the student who died of massive internal injuries "has left our hearts empty and our minds in turmoil".

    Police say rape cases in New Delhi jumped 23.4 per cent to 706 in 2012 from a year earlier, highlighting rampant crime against women in the sprawling metropolis of 16 million people.

    The murder of the 23-year-old student ignited street protests and calls for harsher punishments for rapists.

    Five men are on trial for the rape and killing while a sixth has said he is under 18 and that his case should be heard in juvenile court.

    New Delhi is known as the most unsafe major Indian city for women with more than twice as many rape cases registered in 2011 than in commercial hub Mumbai.

      In and of itself, an armed populace is a great idea, and so is taking responsibility for your own safety and the safety of those around you. At the same time, it's important that anyone who goes around looking for trouble and uses excessive force (like an overzealous cop without a badge) is brought to justice too; turning a blind eye to excesses would only create a culture of mob justice.

      I think with the way the judges and lawyers have been a little vigilantism is needed at times and in most cases where the guilty has walked free.

      I don't like the term Social Justice, because that would entail it starting from the people, at least in my mind.
      I look at it as a temporary deputizing.
      He knows that they cannot provide adequate protection, he knows that he has armed citizens, and he hopes that they will do right by others and help those in need.

      if it takes a gun to do that, then so be it. Kinda wish that our country would realize that a cop isn't everywhere you need them to be and that sometimes a bystander, with a gun, may be your only means of support.

      This IS the very thing that liberals in America don't want. Armed citizenry taking to the streets to administer social justice against they're dyed-in-the-wool members. Killing thousands of babies per day, the progressives will pull out all of the stops to stop the judicially condemned murderers without batting an eyelash.

      Here's a link to a story that illustrates this

      It is the responsibility of all citizens who are witnessing a crime to do whatever they can to keep the rime from happening or escalating. If that means armed citizens walking the streets then so be it. Good call India.

      What a top idea I can imagine a few scores being settled there. all you have to say is i was just protecting a poor defenceless woman.
      India is a country steeped in corruption and abuse there is an institutionalised part of life. They have their untouchables and the abuse of females is a given. As a matter of fact they burn them alive if they have a problem with them. It is easy to see why with crap like this coming from a person holding such high office...

      If these thugs are out of control then someone needs to put a stop to it. Problem with this, here in the states, is you better be stopping a crime of someone of your own color or that will back fire real quick. Just saying.

      The problem is India's, they created it, the women are to blame too. Not for the rapes today, but the eugenics, the abortions of baby girls 20 years ago. Men don't get abortions, women do. Right now India has 37 million excess men. They rape today but the eventual outcome is war. War is the only way, and possibly the reason for the excess, to bring demographics into balance. India is one of the most populated countries in the world. They have one of the oldest cultures in the world and despite their current outsourcing economic boom are still stuck in that culture of 3000 years ago.

      Pakistan has a 15% excess of men, they have an advantage over India because they can export some of the excess to the Middle East as slave labor.

      China has a 15-20% excess of men.

      These men will never marry. Violence is higher with these imbalances. And they are eventual cannon fodder, expendable, and will be used in future battles. Nature doesn't give two hoots about political correctness or culture (India pretends to be so conservative, but nature has a different answer, it has one of the highest AIDS rates in the world).

      Some 30 countries have abnormal sex ratios

      If you are a women, stay away from these places. If you are a women and live in these places, have some baby girls. If someone wants to rape you, shoot them, the are expendable and will never marry.

      Police cannot be everywhere they're needed WHEN they're needed. It is foolish to believe they can be. When lawlessness has reached the levels seen in the modern 'civilized' world, SOMETHING has to be done. This should only bother Authoritarians and their sheep.

      perhaps not but if the criminals who are raping women were sufficiently punished in enough numbers it would tend to stop or at least lessen the occurence.. so their justice system must not work well..

      And yet the people who call for more police are the same people who say capital punishment doesn't work. Delayed punishment doesn't work. But instant punishment works very well indeed.

      You believe that the Young Muslim males will stop these gang rapes if they are punished enough? When they have a moral decree from their cult to do these heinous acts?

      I meant that if they have serious punishments to many of the offenders it may set a lesson for others and reduce the occurence.. I did not know they have 'permission' to rape women..

      but I didn't see anything in the article to say they were muslims.. there are mostly Hindus in India.. about 83% of the population are Hindi
      and a very small amount of the people are Muslim..maybe 10%... I believe that this is more to do with what Pedro posted above.. the huge imbalance of men over women in the country..

      Think again. The muslim population is not scattered in India but is concentrated. This is one of the areas where it is concentrated.

      is there a particular area of Delhi that this is happening in? From what I could find Delhi is 87%Hindu and only 6% is Muslim.. the article didn't say if it was only in a particular area of Delhi.. just wondered..
