India's 9/11

A few thoughts.

1. Gun "control" doesn't seem to have worked very well in India. Apparently it's extremely difficult to get a gun permit there. Consequently, no one in Mumbai other than the terrorists had guns, including hotel security personnel. Even most of the police don't carry guns. Their bamboo sticks were not much of a match against machine guns and grenades.

2. The "9/11 effect" will last a few months in India, just as it did in London after the Underground carnage. Then it will fade away ans people will get complacent and ignore the reality of what they are dealing with.
