Skip to comments.China condemns U.S. gun ownership as human rights violation
Posted on 05/29/2012 8:15:54 PM PDT by Nachum
A report issued by the State Council Information Office of the People's Republic of China has included U.S. gun ownership among a list of human rights violations, Law Enforcement Examiner Jim Kouri reported yesterday. "The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2011" was published last Friday on the PRCs Consulate General in New York website.
The United States prioritizes the right to keep and bear arms over the protection of citizens' lives and personal security and exercises lax firearm possession control, causing rampant gun ownership, the report claims. The U.S. people hold between 35 percent and 50 percent of the world' s civilian-owned guns, with every 100 people having 90 guns [and] 47 percent of American adults reported that they had a gun.
The conclusion that gun bans will result in enhanced protection of lives and personal security flies in the face of both the American and Chinese experience. Predictably, the report presents many of the same cherry-picked arguments used by leading U.S. and international gun control organizations that totally ignore the protective benefits of arms in private hands. And, as typical with advocates of a centralized monopoly of violence, Chinese-style genocide, which resulted in government-caused deaths of unknown tens of millions of defenseless human beings in the 20th Century, and the current brutal occupation and tyrannical suppression of Tibetan sovereignty, is left unacknowledged. Left unsaid is the inconvenient truth that rendering captive populations unable to resist makes such monstrous crimes against humanity not only possible, but inevitable.

So what do we do against China?
“...So what do we do against China?...”
“We” as a people refuse to buy their goods, where we can. That’s one little act of defiance. Spend the extra $$$ if you have to for a “Made in America” label.
“We” as a people refuse to elect people who openly espouse supporting their economy and keeping normal relations with a slave state. That’s another little act of defiance.
“We” as a people refuse to do business with companies that transfer their work forces overseas. OUR people need jobs first. If it isn’t “Americans First”, then don’t feed their machine, if you can avoid doing so.
The buck is never more important than the ideal that this country was founded on - freedom, liberty, and human dignity.
We need, as a people, to re-acquaint ourselves - and our children - with those simple ideas. US first; good Allies second, everything and everybody else way distant - if at all.
We had it before. We can have it again. Starts within each person that wakes up.
Beyond that...you tell me, friend. I don’t pretend to have the answers. I only know what I try to do personally to stem the tide and admittedly, it ain’t a hill o’ beans when it’s only one person.
I wish I did have the answer to give you.
Phil, this graphic has now replaced the 12th Imam from Chicago graphic as my all time favorite!
You are one very creative guy!
That’s damn near perfect. Thanks Phil and Laz!
Better men have tried.
As usual, they won’t succeed.
