The entire World should be outraged….The UN should push for a mass weapon ban on bows and arrows….why not, they stick their collective noses in our ownership of weapons….
============================================================================
— Indian police failed to recover two fishermen’s bodies after the indigenous inhabitants of a remote island fired arrows at a helicopter, officials say.

The men were killed by members of the Sentinelese group when their boat drifted ashore on North Sentinel Island, The Daily Telegraph of London reported. About 50 to 200 Sentinelese live on the island and resist contact with the outside world, using Stone Age techniques to survive.

The island is part of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands group in the Indian
Ocean.
Sunder Raj, 48, and Pandit Tiwari, 52, were fishing for mud crabs off the island Friday, officials said, and fell asleep in their open boat. Since there is a 3-mile exclusion zone around the island, they and other fishermen in the area were there illegally.

“As day broke, fellow fishermen say they tried to shout at the men and warn them they were in danger,” said Samir Acharya, the head of the Society for Andaman and Nicobar Ecology. “However they did not respond — they were probably drunk — and the boat drifted into the shallows where they were attacked and killed.”

The crew of a police helicopter discovered the bodies in shallow graves but were unable to land and recover them because of arrows.

“Right now, there will be casualties on both sides,” Dharmendra Kumar, the Andaman Island police chief in Port Blair, told the Telegraph in a telephone interview. “The tribesmen are out in large numbers. We shall let things cool down and once these tribals move to the island’s other end we will sneak in and bring back the bodies.”

NRA: Feinstein Gun Bill ‘Wrong-Headed Approach’…….


The National Rifle Association attacked California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s gun-control proposal on Thursday — blasting it as a “wrong-headed approach” to addressing the nation’s gun violence in light of the Connecticut school shootings last month.

“Senator Feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades,” the association, founded in 1871 and based in Fairfax, Va., said in a statement. “It’s disappointing but not surprising that she is once again focused on curtailing the Constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing our broken mental-health system.

“The American people know gun bans do not work and we are confident Congress will reject Senator Feinstein’s wrong-headed approach.”

Flanked by displays of 10 assault weapons at a Capitol Hill news conference, Feinstein introduced legislation that prohibits the sale, transfer, manufacture and importation of assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines.

The bill, she said, protects 2,200 “specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes.”

“They are by make and model exempted from the legislation,” Feinstein said, according to Reuters. “Finally, the bill subjects existing or grandfathered weapons to a background check in the event the weapon is sold or transferred.”

The Feinstein bill, however, does ban more than 150 other types of weapons, including handguns and shotguns.
