Knowing is...

http://www.gunpundit.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/knowing-is-half-the-battle.jpgThis is inspired and needs to be a patch, hat and T-Shirt already.  I've seen this around for a little less than a year, but for any GI Joe fans who sat through those craptatious PSA announcements, this is pure win.

A handout image obtained on September 10, 2009, from Britain's Ministry of Defence shows a female Afghan National Police (ANP) officer receiving weapons training on a Smith & Wesson Sigma 9 mm pistol. The first thirteen female ANP recruits will soon be joining their male counterparts. (HANDOUT/AFP/Getty Images)Is it just me?  or does this woman look totally bad-ass?  She's one of the 13 newest female Afghan National Police officers.  I bet Judge & Copper wish they could wear hoods and dark glasses while at work. Anyway, I just hope we (USA) don't totally screw the pooch in Afghanistan, if we do, this woman's life and many other are forfeit.

Tip of the hat to Gunpundit.

It's a trick, get an axe

india_gun_2_1491850c.jpgBoingboing has the story of an Indian family that took a stand against thug militants, took their guns away, killed one and injured two more.  The reason?  One of the thugs wanted to marry Rukhsana Kausar without her consent and when they attacked her family, she pounced on one of the thugs and she and her family fought them off.

I'd like to think that this sort of thing (fighting against thug militants) wasn't such a rarity, but it is.  Cudos to Miss Kausar and her family, nobody deserves to be subjected to thuggery and oppression and if the rest of the world had her tenacity and self-respect, we'd all be better off.  I'd just prefer the family started on a more even ground, but unfortunately, the Indian government wants law abiding citizens to be victims.
