"In the past, when they bullied me, I hid in the United States,” Chan said. “They opened fire at me once I got off the plane.From that moment on, I needed to carry a gun every day when I went out.”

Sure, I carry grenades with me all he time too.......They're easier to throw than those starry shapped pointey things and I don't even have to hit them with it. Not bragging but I can hit a Triad thug in the head with a grenade at a hundred feet, try that with the pointey thing.
