China's government is all for a USA gun ban!
Some surprise, eh?
Innocent blood demands no delay for U.S. gun control - Xinhua | English.news.cn
Xinhua is the official "news" organ of the Communist Party in China, so this position was cleared at the highest levels.
So, "Do it for the children!" is once again the battle cry of those who have an interest in a disarmed populace. Funny, isn't it, the similarity between the positions of the China and NYC governments.
For all that, the latest heartbreaking deaths of the 20 schoolchildren aged five to 10 have made the crime especially unbearable. Many people can't help but turn to the dim hope once again: the gunman's cruelty and evil may provide a strong momentum and broader public support for the restart of gun control efforts. Moreover, with no re-election pressure, President Obama is currently in the best position to promote it.
