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.
