An editorial in state-run Global Times says US experience vindicates Chinese style of government.
First it was Piers Bloody Morgan. And now another foreigner is upbraiding the US over its gun laws – in the form of the Chinese state-controlled Global Times newspaper.
In an editorial headlined “Political inertia hinders gun control action”, the paper argues.
There is clearly an urgent need for gun control in the US, where over 30,000 people are killed by guns a year, more than the number of Americans that have died in all the years of the Iraq war. Guns are part of the history of the US as a country of immigrants, but the situation has changed over the last 200 years. It is recognized that guns are part of America’s traditions and national situation, and cannot simply be regarded as bad. But they have led to more and more problems. The difficulties in promoting gun control show that US society lacks authorities willing and able to push forward reform.

Just a reminder that Mao Zedung banned guns in China just before murdering 80 million people. It would take the USA 3,000 years of gun deaths in the united states to total the number of lives that Mao took in just 4 years.
Does that vindicate the chinese sytel of gov't?
