An elderly man deployed six homemade cannons around his home to prevent it from being demolished.
Zhou Jianbang set the dummy weapons up after watching neighbors houses torn down allegedly without consent.
Mr. Zhou insisted his cannons would not have caused any harm and civil police in Xingyang, Henan, central China, confirmed he had not broken any laws.

Didn’t the Chinese invent gunpowder in the first place?
I believe so. Even invented the first handguns, IINM.
and Hand Grenades.
Now if only that was an art that the people themselves possessed, in order to fend off Mao’s shock troops that forced them into starvation.
Um, what’s the point of having a fake cannon...
Anyway it should be covered by the 2nd amendment
AS IT USED TO BE IN THIS COUNTRY.
You gotta admire a guy who stands his ground against a tyrannical government.
bringing out the artillery!
Worked for Kirk.
The government said all demolitions were agreed to by residents.
Sure they did; at the point of a gun (or many). I trust that government almost as little as I trust ours at the moment.
And “relocation”? Hmmmmm, you had a house; now you will live in a tiny little govt owned apartment. Sure, that’s better.
There aren’t any alternatives! But you are quite entitled to make any suggestions or protests at the appropriate time!
The first I knew about it was when a workmen arrived at the door yesterday.
I asked him if he’d come to clean the windows and he said he’d come to demolish the house! He didn’t tell me straight away of course. Oh no. First he wiped a couple of windows and charged me a fiver. Then he told me.
But Mister Dent the plans have been available in the planning office for the last nine months!
Yes! I went round to find them yesterday afternoon. You’d hadn’t exactly gone out of your way to pull much attention to them have you? I mean, like actually telling anybody or anything.
The plans were on display.
Ah! And how many members of the public are in the habit of casually dropping around the local planning office of an evening?
Er - ah!
It’s not exactly a noted social venue is it? And even if you had popped in on the off chance that some raving bureaucrat wanted to knock your house down, the plans weren’t immediately obvious to the eye were they?
That depends where you were looking.
I eventually had to go down to the cellar!
That’s the display department.
With a torch!
The lights, had probably gone.
So had the stairs!
Well you found the notice didn’t you?
Yes. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet, stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying Beware of the Leopard. Ever thought of going into advertising?
Gotta love his name, Zhou Jianbang.
Bang, bang, bang! Boom, boom, boom!
UN Agenda 21 will do this to all of us who aren’t members of the ruling class elite.
Mythbusters claimed it wouldn’t work. But, I saw some experts on YouTube do it, using the same setup. Actually good enough to keep working for reloads too.
The old guys have little left to lose .. F with ‘em at your peril.
Id love to know what the banners hung in the cannons say!
oddly there are the only one wheeled cannons Ive ever seen.
The Vogons weren’t as reasonable when it came to the whole earth.
Didnt the Chinese invent gunpowder in the first place?
Can’t be, I herd it was muslims, at least that’s what obamaramadindong’s NASA says.
