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.

How do you say “up yours” in Chinese?
Yes we do, and don't you forget it.
China has lots of people, the US has lots of guns...all this world human rights crap is beyond belief. Especially coming from a country with forced abortions....
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.
An armed populace makes it harder to round them up and take out...doesn’t it ChiComs?
Sounds like Hillary’s been over there again.
“Yes we do, and don’t you forget it.”
Good response. The Japanese surely acknowledged that fact.
They don’t want an armed population when they come to collect on our debt!
The peasants are safer without them.
Yep - it’s how we “protect Citizen’s live and personal security”...
live = lives...
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.
The dumbsh!ts must’ve looked up Admiral Yamamoto’s thoughts on guns in America.
Glad the Chinks know whats in store for them in case they ever decide to try to come and collect any collateral.
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.
...and this is from a culture that killed tens of millions of their people in the 20th century?????????? china...STFU!
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.
I don’t care how much China shoots its mouth off.
I couldn’t care less about your synthetic moral outrage which is a pathetic attempt to undermine America.
