If anyone wants to know why we need a nation of riflemen, look what we are up against .
According to the only surviving terrorist from the Mumbai attacks, the terrorists got about 5 months of training . That training included use of hand grenades and AK-47s, small unit tactics, marine assault tactics etc .
The police who tried to stop them had less training and were poorly armed . The first eight cops who responded were armed only with revolvers, including at least one Model 10 Smith & Wesson .
I heard that some cops had MK I Enfields .
Military responders appeared to have FN FALs .
Each terrorist had an AK-47 and a pistol and 350 rounds .
If anyone had suggested repeal of India's gun laws and arming the police with M-4s, he'd have been tossed in a loony bin .
Be prepared .
