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 is China’s real reason for not wanting American citizens to own firearms? None of them shoot far enough to be a threat to China, unless China is thinking about moving over here.
Chinese Human Rights
American Human Rights
Gotta Feeling the Chinese got other motivations for Hating American Guns
U Mad ChiComs!?
That’s the closest we can get to “up yours”? LOL!
PRC can butt out ! Their country is where the elitists have freedom and ordinary folks are their expendable playthings. P!$$ on them !
So why did they allow the export of all those AKs and SKSs to us then?
Those were all on the way to mexican drug cartels and hijacked by US gun store owners.
Funny, the democrats keep saying the same thing...
CHINA GO #$%&* YOURSELF !!

I think we understand that here in the U.S.A, thanks anyway.
About 15 years ago I visited a missionary family in China. One of the many questions I asked was “does the average Chinese citizen own a gun”. The Answer I got was that the Chinese people believe that the only people that should carry a gun were high-ranking police and the military. This is so ingrained (via indoctrination), that to own a gun would be unthinkable for the average citizen.
So you can pull up the van and harvest my organs before i’m cold isn’t a human rights violation... what am i missing here?
Wrong. In fact reality is exactly the opposite. Personal possession of a firearm is what helps protect our lives and ensure our personal security. The saying (all too true) is "When seconds count, the police are only minutes away." The average code-3 (lights and siren) response time in my town is 9 to 10 minutes. I don't know about you, but I can cause a lot of mayhem in just 5 minutes and make a getaway. Therefore, you had better be prepared to handle any situation - any situation - on your own for 10 to 15 minutes. In other words, you had better be prepared to resolve any situation, period.
...and exercises lax firearm possession control, causing rampant gun ownership,
Yes! Exactly. Not only does "rampant" firearms possession ensure personal security, it also helps protect us and our liberties from potentially repressive and aggressive government. You guys ought to know all about that. (Tiananmen Square ring a bell with anyone?)
“How do you say up yours in Chinese?”
I would think, “Fu Kew” would be pretty close;)
I don't get it.
