Why We Shouldn't Give Up The Right to Bear Arms: Crocs!

First, they took away Solomon Islanders' rights to bear arms and then ... crocs! Here's the story of how peace is having a tragic side-effect for the unarmed villagers:

Under the peace deal most Solomon Islanders surrendered their fire arms - leaving them vulnerable to crocodiles.

Last week on the Russell Islands a 10-year-old girl was taken and killed by a crocodile.

I watched on the Discovery channeel or NatGeo where these gator hunters in Florida extract gators in Florida neighborhoods. They were saying it was illegal to touch to kill gators there.

You don't need a gun to kill a gator. I mean, it would help but wouldn't a machete work just as well? If you are fighting for your life you will use anything.

Excuse me? What? The crocodile came into the village, kidnapped a girl, took her back to his lair to eat her? I don't think crocodile's work that way.

I hate to say it, but you'd need a lot more than a gun to kill a croc. Hunting gators you have to sever their spine and thread a wire into their skull to scramble their brain to kill them. Crocodilians are way too primitive to kill by shoot them.

My question is how many deaths were there by crocs prior to the ban on guns?

And why was there such a problem that there needs to be such a complete ban that even rifles and shotguns were banned? They usually remain legal for hunters/farmers to keep even after pistols and such are made illegal.

Years ago i hunted with the Seminole for gators. They would glide up next to them in a swamp boat (like a canoe with a flat bottom) and hit them in the head with an ax. One hit was all it took. This was done at night, to say the least it was a fairly intense experience. It's strange to me that the Solomon Islanders have such trouble with the crocodiles.

what, after all, did they do before they had guns? and what does this have to do with the right to bear arms in other places? because that's where it's going to go... (at least it looks like it to me)

How did they fight off crocs before they had guns? They obviously managed to survive and not die out... so what important survival skill have they forgotten?

I hope you're not implying that a 10 years old little girl should have been carrying a gun to protect herself from a crocodile... because that's exactly what it sound like.

i bet the people who are white would not be left defensless around maneating crocs.god forbid a 10 year old white girl was killed,they would cull a lot of crocs then i bet.i guess only white people who comprise 99% of all known serial killers, and are the only people to murder the natives and take theyre land should be trusted with guns,not the stupid non whites
