Personal Firearms in China
I am german, lived in america for 25 years and now live in China. I personaly think that personal firearms would be a bad choice for the chinese people. Whatever they would solve, in possibly providing some people with personal protection, they would also create problems, with ready access to these firearms by not so nice people. Currently when you are held up in china, it is ussualy some hand weapon, such as a knife, or a group of people. Sure, you could defend yourself with a gun against such situations, but if you have access to a gun, they they too have it. And now you would be held up by gun and or a group of people with guns. So overall you would gain nothing other then a simpler way to kill.|
In actuality, america is not the country with the most guns per person, I think switzerland holds that. Almost every person in Switzerland has a military firearm in their home, to serve in case the country gets invaded.
In all my 25 years in america I have never witnessed a crime initiated by gun, I owned myself several firearms, but they where more for bragging then anything else. I think the guns work for america, because they grew into it, slowly and over time. Giving citizens that never owned guns access to them is probl not a good idea.
