China condemns U.S. gun ownership as human rights violation

“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 U.S. people hold between 35 percent and 50 percent of the world' s civilian-owned guns, with every 100 people having 90 guns (Online edition of the Foreign Policy, January 9, 2011). According to a Gallup poll in October 2011, 47 percent of American adults reported that they had a gun. That was an increase of six percentage points from a year ago and the highest Gallup had recorded since 1993. Fifty-two percent of middle-aged adults, aged between 35 and 54, reported to own guns, and the adults' gun ownership in the south region was 54 percent (The China Press, October 28, 2011). The New York Times reported on November 14, 2011, that since 1995, more than 3,300 felons and people convicted of domestic violence misdemeanors had regained their gun rights in the state of Washington and of that number, more than 400 had subsequently committed new crimes, including shooting and other felonies (The New York Times, November 14, 2011).

The United States is the leader among the world's developed countries in gun violence and gun deaths. .....

EDIT..................

.......According to statistics released by the U.S. Department of Justice, among the High incidence of gun-related crimes has long ignited complaints of the U.S. people and they stage multiple protests every year, demanding the government strictly control the private possession of arms. The U.S. government, however, fails to pay due attention to this issue. ” (I wish!)

If China wants to take back my privately-owned, military-surplus, Chinese communist manufactured SKS rifle I purchased on the capitalist market, all I can say to them is MOLON LABE!

Rest of story:China rounds up activists on Tiananmen anniversary

By Robert Saiget | AFP – 3 hrs ago
Chinese authorities have rounded up hundreds of activists in the capital Beijing, rights campaigners and petitioners said Monday, as they marked the 23rd anniversary of the Tiananmen Square crackdown.

The detentions came as Washington angered Beijing by calling for all those still jailed over the demonstrations on June 4, 1989 -- when hundreds, if not thousands, of protesters were shot and killed by soldiers -- to be freed.

The anniversary of the brutal army action in the heart of Beijing is always hugely sensitive, but particularly so this year ahead of a once-a-decade handover of power marred by fierce in-fighting in the ruling Communist Party.

CHINA and Mitt Romney...

Yucka ducka doo and Yuck You Too!

fearless brave joyful peaceful loving grateful, compassionate

China complained about this once before

They had the same complaint during WWII. Lol.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Oh Please

Oh that's rich..China bashing the US about Human rights violations. Just about as rich as the US bashing China over Communism. As far as the guns are concerned, With the track record of centralized government over the years, you honestly think the American people are that stupid that they would give up their right to defend themselves against Tyrannical and Oppressive control freaks. I think not..Molon Labe

"I have found that being rich is not about having the most but about needing the least"

Is China possibly considering invading the US?

If half of the Chinese people got on boats and arrived on our shores, there is no way we would be able to stop them from taking over - It would be a huge volume of people....like a 100' Wave!

Part of why we MUST retain our right to bear arms.

China Has Military Of About 6 or 7 Million Soldiers Compared To

Our approximately 1 Million I believe. The question is how many of them might abandon their own country once they realize they are in America with a possible opportunity for freedom if they switch sides and fight alongside the Patriots instead??? HaHa Also they may be underestimating the armed strength of the American citizens though... Alex Jones at prisonplanet.tv has reported that there are training camps spread across America now for military and police types including foreigners who are willing to participate in the planned enforcement of the tyrannical globalist agenda for a comfy paycheck average reported $200K annual pay... Their only problem is that many Americans have heeded the wake up calls and just this year alone, from what I understand the gun companies have reported sales of over 11 Million guns so far(just need to make sure there is enough ammo so I think taking a look at the DHS recent order of 450Million rounds of hollow point bullets may be of interest)... In this figure we still have yet to add amounts of guns sold prior to this year which may very well work into maybe several hundred million split between 350 Million population of our country once we include the past several decades worth of gun sales and ownership???

Hmmm sounds like the only way they may be able to take us out is by nuke(The globalist plans to go underground to protect themselves however may have been duped considering I believe they've been informed that all of their supposedly secret underground tunnels and facilities have been lined with bombs LOL), or man made disaster (search HAARP and you may find that the Japan earthquake & resulting Tsunami may not have been a natural disaster after all for the resulting planned radiation poisoning of the Northern Hemisphere???), or air bombings(including drones???), or some kind of weaponized virus (many have been manufactured - for example the plague has actually been dug up from over a thousand years ago and are stored in University Labs across America without adequate protection) for a planned released amongst a contained population say administered inside the FEMA camps if they can get us to these supposedly secret however now exposed facilities via planned collapse of our economy and food supply, and increased police state efforts??? Or could they just keep poisoning our food, water, prescription drugs, environment and vaccines continuing their now prevalent softkill operation???

Seems like their efforts have been well underway for some time now... China government I believe initally signed onto the globalist agenda in exchange for technology from what I've heard and may not be actually taking the largest part in pulling the puppet strings on this. I believe we have yet to pinpoint the true masterminds behind the minions in this entire criminal effort to eliminate and enslave the remaining world population - world government control of human resources is the ultimate goal I believe once we are paired down to approximately a more manageable 1Billion... They regard the other remaining 6Billion currently as mostly just a liability at this point so the democide efforts covered up via propaganda are being pursued accross the world right now as we keep seeing never ending wars and starvation efforts being taken against humanity... As we have seen UN Agenda 21 in action so far in the United States via their sneaky tactic of buying off mayors & the like to administer locally enforced land grabbing to slowly eliminate our property rights with the aim at making us ultimately unable to fend and farm for ourselves which could be their most powerful tool for planned tyranny... Realize in China's path to enforcing their communist nation agenda one of the first things they did was attack the farmers which we are starting to see this happening more and more here in America... See the video "Farmageddon" (farmageddonmovie.com by Kristin Marie Productios also sold at the infowars.com online store) described as an "An Eye-Popping Wake Up Call" - Kevin Thomas, The Los Angeles Times...

The fact of the matter is that American's have been under attack for quite some time now via the UN, NATO and Globalist Bankster Eugenicist Fascist Bilderberg type agenda, although the masses have not been informed as much until recently since those who are administering the attacks have control over the mass media channels (MSM) and are able to administer propaganda for the cover up in the effort to try not awaken the sleeping giant being the American people... Unfortunately for them, the masses are finally becoming fully aware of the deception via use of the internet that these criminals have not been able to completely control so far although they are getting closer to this goal. Masses have realized that the MSM hasn't been telling the truth thus an explosion of alternative media sources has been the order of the day more prevalent in the past 6months as reports are coming in about MSM ratings being in recently a severe decline. So we are still able to communicate with each other via the still mostly free internet. The question is for how long will we be able to use the internet which is a tremendous tool to help us enable our fight???

I myself have turned off my satellite TV service starting a few months ago actually due more to budget reasons than anything else. A few months ago I realized I wanted to offset my Ron Paul campaign contributions so I figured I would just save about $80 per month by turning off my DirecTV, LOL I suppose I'm probably not the only one doing this... I hope we can continue the fight against the tyranny with the help of the internet. It appears China has been very successful in controlling their internet so evidently they do have the tools to do this, the question is will these same types of tools be ultimately used to turn off our internet freedoms???

Creating a new Boogeyman??

The big difference between China and the United States is that China doesnt lie about what they are. They are a communist 1 party government and the citizens have no personal rights to speak out against government actions without consequences.

The United States has a 2 party system that acts like a communist party behind closed doors. Internet restrictions imposed against Americans to "protect" copyrighted material from the Chinese black market. NDAA so Americans have the same rights to speak out against government actions as the Chinese citizen. And the list goes on and on and on and .....

Just like in America most of the Chinese citizens are good people who only want to make ends meet to pay the bills and put food on the table for thier family. Does the Chinese government represent the will of their people just like the American government stands behind the will of its popular majority?? Diebold and state conventions anyone?? Out of control local police departments which have been militarized to act against its citizens?? If you want to hang on Tienamen Square then I say Ruby Ridge, Waco and how many assinations and murders that didnt get the attention of the AP news outlets.

Governments unfortunately in this day and age do not represent the will of the people. Dont buy into the propaganda

Give the Chinese people the right of self defence...

...via gun ownership, and there would be no Communist China to launch such ludicrous attacks on Americans civil rights!

"Truth is an absolute defense to the charge of paranoia."

Sell all U.S. government bonds.

Therefore the Chinese government announces to get rid of all it's guns first?
grant

"Rampant gun ownership"????

Heck yeah!!! Since the US gov't sold the US to China they are going to try to make us dance to their tune. And since most of the country is commie without knowing it, they'll go right along.

Funny that "China" doesn't "condemn" the human rights abuses (at home and abroad) the US state apparatus, preferring to attack a right of the people to defend themselves. This smells like propaganda.

Who cares what china thinks

Who r they to condem us Do u not know how they treat their people
I wouldn't acknowledge such a remark

Drvab

If we didn't have the right to our guns...

We would already be flying the Chinese flag all over this land. I honestly believe that the number of "invasions" on our home land is a direct consequence of our extremely armed citizenry.

Agreed.

Maybe China is trying to get our govenment to disarm us so that it can invade.

Your joking right China on human rights now thats funny

Say it with me Tenemen square.

I suppose they'll want ..

the U.N. to do something about it. Yeah, they are buying up our debt, and I think they have eyes on our lands. When the dollar fails they will want to invade. China already has a base in Mexico I read yesterday. They are waiting for us to be weakened. Many are waiting for us hit a weak point, so we can get our 'just' rewards as they see it. This is the cost of our interventionism. We've got to stop it.

This is a first maybe.

This is the first time another country has condemned anything America is about in my 21 years maybe, other than Osama, and the Soviets I guess. Why would China come out and say this. Maybe it's because they have more leverage over our country right now than they ever have.

As long as we have all these guns, we don't have to worry though lol.

If we want the Chinese to keep their nose out of our business

then we need to keep our nose out of theirs and every other country's. Plus, stop sending those murderous regimes our tax dollars!!! This "human rights" nonsense is dangerous. Every individual has his own opinion of what constitutes human rights just as every individual has his own opinion of what constitutes civil rights. If we as a nation try to force our definition of human rights on countries who have to bow the knee to us, one day, when we're completely broke and at the mercy of the Chinese, we're going to have to accept their definition of human rights.

American gun owners thank China for gun powder, but ...

that's where it ends. China can kiss my grits!!

A great documentary, "Innocents Betrayed - The True Story of Gun Control " proves that in the countries where the people were/are not allowed to arm themselves, that death by government is the leading cause of extermination of its citizens. Take the time to watch this 57-min. documentary (very graphic): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=137bWHaAA1o

The only thing that can keep

The only thing that can keep human rights violations from happening is for the humans to own guns so they can kill the violators

yhis is how

this is how it begins,human rites,the chinese have killed millions of their own people and their crying about human rites.and they loan our gov. money so this is were they say no more money till you take away their guns.and obama will bow and say okay my lord,

freedom420

You know why they "care" don't you?

...When China and Japan come to take us over they don't want to get shot at. I'm sure Romney or O'Bomb'a either one will be happy to help with China's request.

Gun Control Works!

Just as Stalin, Hitler and...Mao!

Gun Control

Gun control ain't about guns...it's about CONTROL.

The Chinese seem to do a pretty good job at that sadly :(

Have never been there, and hope to never go there.

I wonder, statistically, who

I wonder, statistically, who is more of a violator of human rights(gun violence):
a) a heavily armed citizenry or
b) a heavily armed government?

And I wonder further who has been a bigger violator of human rights(gun violence):
a) the United States government against its heavily armed citizenry or
b) the Chinese government which bans citizens from owning guns

Hopefully the Chinese are researching the answer to these questions...

China ruled by Chinese, America ruled by Neocons

You have a very poor understanding of China and America.

China is ruled by ethnic Chinese.

But America is ruled by Neocons.

So the Neocon controlled Media, Govt, Banking system wages active war on the culture and heritage of majority Americans.

But in China, media,govt, banking system protects culture and heritage of Chinese.

Corruption is everywhere, China, USA, Africa, but there are differences in ruling classes.
