Communist China was born from bloody combat in 1949 when Mao Zedong and his militants overthrew the existing government. However, since taking power, communists have made sure to make guns as illegal as possible for ordinary citizens.
Like every authoritarian regime, China keeps a close eye on anyone who wants to protect themselves or have their own means of self-defense. A recent shooting in Wuhan left the nation stunned, however, since people were surprised anyone in China even had a gun, other than the police or military.
China’s Gun Control
In China, it is borderline impossible to have a legal right to bear arms as a civilian. China doesn’t have much violent crime compared to the US, which liberals attribute to the lack of guns. It’s also clearly related to the fact they have the death penalty (like Canada) and severely and rapidly punish criminals with speedy trials.
Gun violence in the US has been surging, particularly as COVID ravages our economy and social system. China loves to focus on American gun violence and claims we are a lawless nation of vagabonds who can’t control our trigger fingers.
China likes to say its repressive social credit system is the perfect model for keeping everybody safe. Yet, the story under the surface in China is not so perfect when it comes to violence and crime.

America vs. China
In America, our right to bear arms is protected by our Constitution, or at least it should be. In China, guns are seen as unacceptable. Only the communist government and its lackeys are allowed to have them in order to enforce conformity.
If you buy, sell, or craft a gun in China, you will be going to jail for a long time. In 1996, even stricter laws were put through to crack down on anyone with any funny ideas. The government regularly sweeps the country to find any illegal weapons and tells everyone it is for their own safety.
Chinese people mainly believe that, since it is true their murder rate is only 10% of that of the US. However, the laws around gun ownership are extremely harsh. In 2016, one individual was put in jail for life just for buying fake guns on the internet. Even owning replica guns is highly illegal in China.
We need gun control in the US because Saudi Arabia, North Korea, and China wrote a paper saying citizens having guns is a violation of human rights https://t.co/25wWHrx3gb

The Truth About China
China has a much lower crime rate than the US. Nevertheless, it still has a huge problem with knife attacks, suicide, and other issues. Then, there’s the fact that the communist government is genociding the Uyghur people and controls everything people do.
That may be how Joe Biden and the Democrat Party would like to live, but it’s not how any American patriot would ever want to exist.
