The Irony of the Chinese Communist Party Pushing a U.S. Gun Ban

Via The Daily Bell

Some people say that “No civilian should have military style weapons!”

Ironically they also criticize those who say gun ownership deters oppressive government. “Oh yea, your hunting rifle is going to stand up against the government’s tanks and bombs,” they laugh.

And yet, guerrilla warfare is extremely difficult to defeat.

Don’t get me wrong, I would not like to see the U.S. government get bad enough that a revolution is a serious option.

But even the U.S. government itself has admitted that there is a time and place to take up arms against an oppressive government. The U.S. government has armed Syrian rebels, Afghani rebels, and Libyan rebels just to name a few in recent times.

And guerrilla fighters are notoriously hard to beat. The U.S. knows that from fighting against rebels they armed, like the Afghanis and ISIS.

China also knows that guerrilla fighters are hard to beat. In fact, guerrilla resistance is responsible for the domination of the Communist Party since Mao Zedong.

Mao originally gained power by waging a years-long guerrilla campaign against the officially recognized Chinese state. The first fighters were largely farmers armed with farm tools and sharpened bamboo spears. Defections from the military helped them grow their ranks, and arm the soldiers. Their armory grew when they won battles and took the equipment of the enemy.

According to The 33 Strategies of War, by Robert Greene, Mao used a strategic armistice with the Chinese government to solidify his power during WWII.

Mao and his rebels were losing the civil war against the central state. But as Japan invaded, the two sides decided to stop fighting each other and instead focus on the Japanese. During this time, Mao was able to regroup and train his soldiers by attacking the Japanese with guerrilla tactics. Meanwhile, Chiang Kai-shek, the leader of the official Chinese army, waged a costly conventional defense against the invading Japanese.

Having suffered minimal losses, and with his fighters trained up, Mao turned his focus back to the Chinese government after World War II. Now the Communist leader controlled large swaths of China with loyal citizens who witnessed the Communist army’s resistance to the Japanese.

Within a few years, the Republic of China government was pushed off the mainland and took refuge in Taiwan. Since then, the Communist Party has dominated China.

China Calls for U.S. Gun Control

In a dark sort of hilarity, China state media says that the U.S. government must ban guns in order to protect human rights.

“The US will have to adopt gun control in the future,” the editorial said. “Gun ownership in China is strictly regulated, which helps reduce gun-related crimes and deaths. The US should learn from China and genuinely protect human rights. If the US does not control its guns, problems caused by firearms in the foreseeable future will continue plaguing US society.”

… “It’s inhumane for the US, which boasts about its human rights record, to turn a blind eye to gun violence, snub increasing calls for gun control and risk more innocent lives.”

I don’t know about you, but instead of 1,000–or 10,000 by one estimate–innocent unarmed civilians being massacred at Tiananmen square in 1989, I think it would have been better to see 1,000 armed resisters pick off Communist Party officials one by one.

But a well-armed civilian force is useful for more than rebellion.

Imagine if Americans ever had to repel a homeland invasion. It may seem unlikely now, but who knows what the political climate will be like in ten or twenty years. A brutal economic collapse–like the kind caused by runaway debt and hyperinflation–could spark a global conflict.

The United States shipped guns to British civilians during WWII because of the possibility of a German invasion. It was understood that resistance from every house, block, neighborhood, and village would overwhelm the invading force.

Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto probably didn’t actually say: “You cannot invade mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass.”

But what he did say, was “The fiercest serpent may be overcome by a swarm of ants.”

He said that arguing against building a new type of battleship. While mighty, he said it didn’t matter compared to the countless jets that could attack it.

And the same lesson holds true for a murderous government, whether homegrown or foreign.

Throughout history, people have had to hold tyrannical governments in check. I hope that in this day and age information is the only weapon we will need.

But it would be naive and dangerously ignorant to remove the final line of defense against psychopathic tyrants.

You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.

Meanwhile in Israel, a demonstration is to take place against gun ownership in America. This article features pictures of Israeli women walking around openly carrying semi-autos. An expression of Jewish paranoia, no doubt. Israelis are "armed to the teeth" yet Jews in America call for restrictions.

I know my AK's, and all through the Syrian conflict I saw pix of various versions of AKMs...and a lot of them had the (Geneva Convention illegal) spike bayonet that only the Chinese made.

They weren't so high-and-mighty about selling them to a 'third party' (significant look at the Pentagram, er, uh, Pentagon) who then gave them to child-beheading, sex-enslaving human rights violators. My former Vietnamese landlord once told me that the Chinese will sell anything to anyone for a buck...'cause they don't don't give a fuk.

If China wants an American gun ban, that's one very good reason to keep our guns. China has a reason for everything they do. China believes that, one way or another, it will own America.

All you gun grabbers are now aligned with the Chi Coms.

Of course repressive regimes are all for iron clad gun control, it leaves them and the worst criminals the only ones armed.  Too bad for the proles, eh?

This is very good news, I hope they put this commie message out over the mass media.

When I was in the Army, we had bayonets in case it came down to a pugilist stick style knife fight. Stupid fucking communist flipping his stupid fucking gums. Fuck off.

Why do Americans need semi-auto rifles?

To put down enough suppressive fire to get your ass out of an FBI false flag kill-zone.

Never leave home without at LEAST 200 rounds.

Imagine if Americans ever had to repel a homeland invasion.

Why would any American have to "imagine" that?  We have the real thing already happening.  10+ million illegal invaders.  They outnumber US Army troops better than 10 to 1.

The United States shipped guns to British civilians during WWII because of the possibility of a German invasion.

And if the Brits shot and killed one of those Germany invaders, would they have been thrown in jail (or executed on the spot)?  Because that's exactly what happens if you try to shoot the current invaders in the US.

That's right, our government uses force to prevent us from defending our country.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

So. A country that slaughtered 63 million of its own citizens, has gone the furthest to shut down free speech, has massive endemic corruption....

Wants to lecture us about the right to self-defense and self-determination.

This level of hypocrisy is awe-inspiring.

Having lived in China, I listened to the old folks talk about the cultural revolution. Unbelievable. Mrs. Stengel and I felt the effect of their surveillance. If the Chinese govt makes a statement about our gun rights that's my cue to go out tomorrow and buy something on an AR15 platform. And to buy more ammo monthly just like putting $ in a savings acct.

In the last ten years the Bill Of Rights and the Constitution have taken huge hits. Americans lost a lot of rights. The prevalence of guns did not stop it one bit. Either the presence of guns is not a deterrent or the type of people who own guns don't care about their rights.

It takes a while to bring a pot to boil.    You might want to look at the long list of grievances contained in the Declaration of Independence.  As you do so, consider the standing armies we now face take the form of the legions employed by the alphabet agencies.  The mercenaries sent to control us now consist of contract security agencies hired by government and industry. The domestic insurrections fomented against us now consists of false flag operations and for hire protestors recruited to bring down our civilization.   The savages mobilized against us now take the form of the sanctioned Islamic takeover of key elements of government and their outright invasion of our cities.   Not to mention the drug cartels recruited to make war on our southern border.   

“….He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.  He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.   He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people….”

The ChiComms are the best in the world at making more Chinese and Americans are the best in the world at killing uppity foreigners. We're destined to have a long and interesting relationship.

Every country has its share of morons and idiots. China is no exception.

 

Considering how long the US government and the mainstream media have been pumping propaganda against China, Russia, and others, a little return of favor is to be expected. At least China isn't plotting regime change -- a US specialty around the world.

The U.S. Constitution does not adequately define "arms".  When it was adopted, "arms" included muzzle-loaded muskets and pistols, swords, knives, bows with arrows and spears.  However, a common-law definition would be "light infantry weapons which can be carried and used, together with ammunition, by a single militiaman, functionally equivalent to those commonly used by infantrymen in land warfare."  That certainly includes modern rifles and handguns, full-auto machine guns and shotguns, grenade and grenade launchers, flares, smoke, tear gas, incendiary rounds and anti-tank weapons, but not heavy artillery, rockets or bombs, or lethal chemical, biological or nuclear weapons.  Somewhere in between we need to draw the line.  The standard has to be that "arms" includes weapons which would enable citizens to effectively resist government tyranny, but the precise line will be drawn politically rather than constitutionally.  The rule should be that "arms" includes all light infantry weapons that do not cause mass destruction.  If we follow the rule that personal rights should be interpreted broadly and governmental powers narrowly, which was the intention of the Framers, instead of the reverse, then "arms" must be interpreted broadly.
