Skip to comments.China condemns U.S. gun ownership as human rights violation
Posted on 05/31/2012 12:04:56 AM PDT by marktwain
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.

Denying an individual the ability to defend himself or herself is the human rights violation.

So that’s why democrats everywhere love the Chinese.
I have this little baby for them:
In addition, it has the Tromix Monster Brake and Krebs Combat Sights. It will also have a vertical grip/light.
Musing about whether to get a drum or mag for it.
Can we get John Huntsman to translate this message into Mandarin for those of us who like to hear the original ?
The PRC restricts property rights, freedom of speech, movement, religion and strictly censors the internet. I have no idea why they would be criticizing the USA.
However, my very wife stood in front of the computer, over Skype, and showed me some of the features....she looked so dang cute popping the extend-able stock in and out.
It had to be shipped to a local licensed dealer for pickup and when then saw it they were impressed.
Beat me to it.
All you need to do is google “China executions images” and you can learn EVERYTHING you need to know about what happens when only government can have guns!
AND near a thousand .223?
Sounds good to me!
Alex, I'll take 'Why is the U.S. the only free nation in the world?"
I have an original Armalite AR-7
When you break it down and store it in the stock, IT FLOATS!
They’ve gotta have something to bash us for.
