200 Semi-Automatic Rifles issued to Forest Rangers to fight Poachers, save animals

-Semi-Auto Rifle handed over in ceremony-
You really want to save the animals? Then Arm your Forest Rangers with modern weapons! This report unfortunately does not give details on the make, model, caliber, etc of the semi-automatic/self-loading rifles to be issued to the Assam Forest Protection Force. The photo is undetermined, but by my eye, may be Indian made INSAS rifles, which are similar to the famous  FN-FAL . The super rich phonies, especially the anti-gun & Hollywood crowd, have the resources to save thousands of rare animals, but draw the line at using firearms to do it (Hypocrites!). These poachers are vicious well-armed criminals that will not hesitate to kill a man who interferes with their ruthless profiteering slaughter. These Forest Cops need all the help they can get because, make no mistake about it, this is a war, a real shooting war, and needs to be treated like one. - (S9)

Kaziranga staff gets self-loading rifles to fight poachers

With rhino poachers giving sleepless nights to forest guards manning the Kaziranga National Park (KNP), the Assam government has armed the Assam Forest Protection Force (AFPF) personnel with 200 SLRs (Self-loading rifle) besides dispatching additional force to the wildlife protection area that is recognised as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Tuesday ceremonially handed over 50 SLRs to the AFPF personnel in Guwahati. Gogoi expressed confidence that reinforcement of forces, armed with sophisticated weapons, would further strengthen security in all the 152 camps inside the Kaziranga National Park (KNP). "The forest personnel with their sophisticated weapons will be able to match the firepower of poachers and help to protect the rhinos in their natural habitats," he said.
Poachers have killed 13 rhinos in the KNP this year, while twenty-eight rhinos have perished in three waves of flood that deluged the park since June this year...
