On a serious note, never fired a gun in my life let alone owning one, I expect my strong arms and kick boxing lessons to do the trick :D

It is illegal in most states of Australia including NSW. Pepper spray and mace are classified as prohibited weapons by Australian laws. Western Australia is the only exception where these are considered as controlled weapons. That means pepper spray is legal in Western Australia but it is restricted.

Welcome to Australia.

Lol, you have to buy a safe with electronic lock, ammo and the firearm cannot be kept in the same place. Automatic weapons are banned and semi-automatics are restricted to the public.

Do they have gun range in India? I am sure they do, you should go there once.

I went to gun range couple of times but the first time I held a rifle was when I was visiting my grandmother's village in chittagong.. there was for whatever reason a Bangladeshi army post. So being so young (maybe was ~7) - i was curious by their presence .... one of the guy there let me held a rifle (while he was holding me) and gave me a blank shell as a token...

I was so happy - i still remember to this day. The gun range visit however gave me headache and I didnt really enjoy it that much. Thought it was a waste of money.

Anyways the actual gun control issue is a tough one... besides the most simplest of weapons, guns (ie assault rifle) for public sale should ideally be banned. In USA you can never ban it as it is a constitutional right.. but the laws (each state) need a lot of review and a lot of restrctions for access.... including centralilzing data (meaning when you put your ID you are able to see esxactly what he bought previously and the rest of his life)... so out of the ordinary purchase can be reviewed. Why does one guy need to buy more than one rifle? But it seems like in many states it is just way to simple to buy guns...

No where in the developed world, mass shooting is as prevenlant as in the united states. That says something is wrong.

Shooting ranges are there but I have never been to one, I consider myself a military enthusiast so do know a little about firearms although never held one :D

You see Gun laws in India are extremely strict and almost impossible for an average civilian to get a license which is actually praise-worthy, third world country with a gun culture is a dangerous combination, see what is happening in Pak.

I heard even military grade weapons are easily available in US, I don't understand why should a civilian be allowed to own assault/semi-automatic rifles. Shotguns, pistols are still okay.

I dont know what you mean by 'authentic word'. To us the way we speak in Bangladesh is the authentic way. When you use banglish, its not going to be exact how you pronounce. So from that way 'Asroo' is not the exact way we pronounce in Bangladesh. Bangla is our national language, therefore we dictate the 'autehticity' than West Bengal in my opinion.

What kind of sorcery is this? :lol:

Just cuz you are a Bangladeshi doesn't mean you own the language, Please do not insult our beautiful language and heritage by marginalizing it by regional lines, I don't wanna go that way neither do I want to screw this thread or anything but an overwhelming majority of Bengali intellectuals and stalwarts that you and I both look up to for inspiration were Indian Bengalis which is a fact . Dialect and Accent changes by region but the original words remains the same, you or I can not change them even if we keep speaking them by our own way for a thousand years. This is not a WB vs BD thing neither do I intend to mock the way you speak, hell we pronounce many words wrongly ourselves probably even more than you, there is nothing wrong in pointing it out.

language is for people, not the other way around. That's why there is American English and the there is British English. The Authenticity has no value in real life. Over time language change to meet the people's requirement.

Is doesn't matter from where the word was originated, what it matters is how its being used currently and if its being used by the people. Bangla is the national language of only one country and that is Bangladesh. So they dictate the authenticity of the current language.

in India (where West Bengal is), to my knowledge, Bangla is not their national language, its their regional language. When/if India declared Bangla as their national language, then we can talk about "Indian Bangla" and "Bangladeshi Bangla". until then we have just one official version and that is Bangla (spoken by Bangladeshi).

India does not have the concept of a national language, we are not a homogeneous country like BD, Bangla is one of our official languages and enjoy the same status as Hindi, Urdu, English and two dozen other languages. I have had this debate here so many times that I am tired now, semi-literate kids in FB and Youtube comment section use better logic than " we are Bangladeshi, Bangla is ours". I mean how can I even try to engage in a mature discourse with you when you already declared that Bengali language is dictated by Bangladeshis :facepalm:

Catalan is not the national language of Spain .... So Catalonians cannot decide on their own language? What type of logic is that.

I grew up reading Bengali literature from both sides of the border, a human made border, because we the people are not capable to live peacefully with someone of a different religion. Our Anthem is written by a nobel laureate who lived in both sides of the border. Rabindranath's Gitanjali is a Bengali masterpiece and now u think u r more capable to decide on Bangla than Rabindranath because u live in this side of the border?
Amartya Sen, another nobel laureate, lived in both sides of the border and that makes me proud.

Anyways back to topic, NRA wants to ban the bump stock that converts semi automatic to automatic. So for the next mass shooting the number will be less than 50. :applause:

Catalan is not the national language of Spain .... So Catalonians cannot decide on their own language? What type of logic is that.

I grew up reading Bengali literature from both sides of the border, a human made border, because we the people are not capable to live peacefully with someone of a different religion.

As an Indian Bengali I am more proud of Mohammed Younus than Sen, Younus saheb actually implemented and executed his ideas and theories on the ground, contributed to the country and its people, changed the lives of grassroot people in a way that the impact was felt and it actually boosted your economy and improved your HDI, his legacy and influence will remain forever while Sen's work will be limited to Libraries, classrooms and intellectual circles. I wish we had someone like him.

Bit unfair on Sen. Remember that Yunus won the Nobel Peace Prize. Amartya won the Nobel Prize in Economics (a subject itself based on theories). It's comparing apples to oranges.

It's not Amartya's job to put his theories into practice. His work and contributions will be studied, applied, and improved upon by others, much the same way as Adam Smith's work. It's the best an economist can hope for. You could also argue that Yunus's Microfinance is based on the study of welfare economics, something that Sen has contributed to significantly.

I'm also of the belief that Yunus should also win the Nobel Prize for Economics, for the theory of Microfinance. But that's a different matter.

Anyways, on topic, guns are bad, mmkay? :lol:

Not exactly, Russia, China has veto power too, and US doesn't wait for UN's approval, no block including UN is economically and militarily powerful enough to stop US from doing what it wants.

I think you are confusing UN with Nato, UN can not and doesn't invade, although it has been doing a commendable job in keeping peace in Africa where civil wars been happening on a regular basis. On the other hand Nato does invade countries and it does not sit and wait for UN green signal when it does so, Nato has its own way of arm twisting UN. However as a global police Nato has done a few good things too like saving the Bosnians when the Serbs were massacring them by the thousands and if it wasn't for Nato Kurds would have been ethnically cleansed from Iraq by now.

So what I am trying to say here is this is no black and white or good and evil type textbook scenario. No one is Saint and no one is pure evil either, it is all about power, business and self interests.
