China condemns U.S. gun ownership as human rights violation
Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 5/29/12 | David Codrea

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 PRC’s 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.

Yes we do, and don't you forget it.

"Up Yours".

Most that will be here speak enough english to understand it, and it can be demonstrated for the E-1s that aren't clear on the concept.

Good response. The Japanese surely acknowledged that fact.

China believes that only well-trained soldiers and police need guns.

The peasants are safer without them.

That is the problem with already boycotting Pinko Commie Crap products as much as possible, no practical way to boycott them MORE!

If bubba Klinton had not banned imports of Norinco firearms we would not be hearing this, the generals were happy to be the ones selling us all those guns.

That's how the ChiComs got into power. They had the guns and the peasantry didn't. That's the way it still is and why they're still in power.

That's why Tienanmen Square happened.

Govt's just LOVE it when they have all the guns. Well not here Chang!

Tens of millions died under Mao because they were unarmed, not once but twice! Had they had personal means of self defense, the outcome would have been different.

Of course China is opposed to citizens having weapons, pretty hard to kill 100 million of your own people when they have the means to fight back.

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.

I used to think that China was the only country in the world that could field 200 million soldiers, until I realized that America's hunters were as numerous, better equipped, trained, actually had a weapon, their own vehicle and could respond, if needed, to any area of the country in one or two days time!

Every Communist must grasp the truth: Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.

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.

“The United States prioritizes the right to keep and bear arms over the protection of citizens' lives and personal security ...

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?)
