People's Republic of China Bashes U.S. 2nd Amendment as Human Rights Violation - 8

According to the faceless, monolithic regime that rules the People’s Republic of China, the United States is a flagrant abuser of human rights because its Second Amendment allows ordinary rank-and-file citizens to bear arms.

The Orwellian irony of criticizing Americans’ constitutional guarantee of unalienable gun rights as a human rights violation elevates hyperbole to new levels of looking-glass blatherspeak.

The PRC issued a report entitled “Human Rights Record of the United States in 2011,” a day after the U.S. State Department published its annual update on human rights abuses in mainland China by the Communist leadership, which regularly "disappears" critics, prohibits free exercise of religion, tortures dissidents and their families, forces women to have abortions to enforce its "one-child policy," censors the Internet, harvests body organs from opponents, and on and on.

Those aren't human rights violations by China's standards, but your Second Amendment right to own a weapon is.

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 says. “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.

Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms Chairman Alan Gottlieb called the Chinese "a laughing stock."

“Perhaps what offends them most is that our Second Amendment was authored to prevent this country from going down the same road toward totalitarianism that rulers in the People’s Republic have embraced," Gottlieb said. "We are not like China, and we will never be like China so long as American citizens retain their right to keep and bear arms, and they know it.”

Hi...

Obviously the Chinese government is spouting their usual rhetoric about us. This they can do, as nobody in China dares to refute such statements.

The gun rights issue exposes major cultural differences between our two countries. The Chinese are a very subservient people who will always do what they are told. Not so in America. The anti-gun policy reflects on the government and not the people of China.

@dcernick They actually did invade the US. A couple of islands in Alaska by the names of Attu and Kiska if memory serves. Maybe not exactly mainland but they had boots on the ground.

If you want to see a real urban survivalist you should watch a day hazards in China. Its everything this article has mentioned any then some. I will keep my guns, protect my family, and provide meat for them. The Chinese government will send you to prison for defending yourself against robbers. They didnt do jack in WWII and doesnt have our back now.

I bet they would like to see us get rid of our guns. Some say that's why Japan didn't attack the mainland US in WW II, because every citizen had a gun and knew how to use it.
