China: 3 Dead in Stabbing in Changsha, Hunan Province - TIME


from the aritcle...
Quote:
Just two weeks after a mass stabbing in southwest China claimed 29 lives, and days after 153 Chinese disappeared on Flight MH370, another tragedy appears to have struck the Middle Kingdom.

Not again? On the morning of March 14, knife-wielding individuals unleashed a stabbing attack in Changsha, the capital of central China’s Hunan province. Three people were killed and two seriously injured, according to Chinese media. In addition, one suspect was shot dead by police and another was captured, reported the People’s Daily, the mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party. Three suspects are still at large.

Friday morning’s bloodshed echoed a far deadlier rampage on March 1 in the southwestern city of Kunming, which resulted in 29 deaths and more than 140 injuries. That mass murder binge was blamed by the Chinese government on separatists from the troubled northwestern region of Xinjiang, which is home to the Turkic-speaking, largely Muslim Uighur ethnic minority. All eight of the assailants were either killed or captured. Only one of the attackers’ names has been made public. A couple of days after the carnage, Chinese authorities deemed the case “solved.”

from wikipedia...concerning gun control in China...
Quote:

Firearm ownership law in the People's Republic of China heavily regulates the ownership of firearms. Generally, private citizens are not allowed to possess firearms. Firearms can be used by law enforcement, the military and paramilitary, and security personnel protecting property of state importance (including the arms industry, financial institutions, storage of resources, and scientific research institutions).

Civilian ownership of firearms is largely restricted to non-individual entities such as sporting organisations, hunting reserves, and wildlife protection, management and research organizations. The chief exception to the general ban for individual gun ownership is for the purpose of hunting.[1]

Individuals who hold hunting permits can apply to purchase and hold firearms for the purpose of hunting.[2] Illegal possession or sale of firearms may result in a minimum punishment of 3 years in prison, with the maximum being the death penalty.[3]

hhhmmm...interesting...interesting indeed...

People bent on wanton killing will do so, armed with their bare hands if necessary. Never mind knives. People hell-bent on no weapons for self-defense in places like schools, will tell the adults there to fling chalk and erasers at the attacker coming at them with hands ready to rip them to shreds.

Now, back to the topic at hand. Something tells me China is slowly but surely experiencing a Muslim awakening in its midst, and it will do its best to keep it quiet.

[/off my soap box], heh heh.
