Many people in China, including foreigners living here, seem to take China's gun control laws and the resulting safety, for granted!   We hardly hear anyone expressing a desire for gun control in China;  certainly no students marching down the streets demanding gun control, as is happening in the US now.  Credit must be given the Chinese Government for its tough gun control laws.  The reverse situation is true in the US where powerful gun lobby like the NRA(National Rifle Association) and certain politicians prevent the Government there implementing gun controls despite several mass killings using guns in the recent past and before that.  When politicians are beholden to certain groups of people, when they look to the next election, they are unwilling to implement policies that antagonize their supporters, with the result that society at large suffers!

If American police is able to protect civilians from crimes, why the majority of civilians still need to waste a great deal of money on purchasing arms?

Seems you are a gun advocate; you should join the NRA; they would love to have you!  But on a more  serious note, guns don't protect their owners, so owning guns to protect oneself is not a solution to crime.  In fact it creates more problems.  Banning gun ownership as in China is a better alternative.

What is the purpose of juxtaposing China's situation with that of the U.S.A.? There can only be a demented intention to derive extra mileage for claiming the moral high point. Nothing could be more perverted than this!

You could have compared China with a European country, say, Denmark, the Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland. These are safe countries even though gun ownership is allowed in at least one of them.

Why is gun ownership totally banned in China?

Precisely because it would be foolish to allow Chinese people to own lethal weapons. This proves China is not "safe". The published data quite bolster this fact: No other country kills so many of its own people in judicial killings as does China. There must be a reason why Chinese kill Chinese with the help of their courts and prisons. There is no so-called "death penalty" in European states. And other forms of crime also happen fewer times than in China, for example burglaries, theft, human trafficking, child abductions.

Rant against the U.S.A.'s record but don't link that rant to an obsequious act of sycophancy towards China!

Do you think your question is a laughing matter?

You don't understand U.S. America's history.

The police are not the only ones tasked with protecting citizens. U.S. citizens themselves are expected to help maintain public law and order.

Can you ask Chinese people to respect the law and to maintain order in public?

But you can ask citizens of Western countries to do that. The trouble is that the guns have been needed far too long in the U.S>A. to keep dangers under control. Today many citizens are the danger they need to protect other citizens from.

Instead of maintaining the order, they're the ones putting people's lives in danger.

I'm not against gun control. US should learn from China in tightening its gun regulation to prevent mass shootings.
