This Is Why They Don't Allow Guns In China

41 cases of self-immolation over land grabs.

Guns and foreclosure don't mix.  And neither do homemade fire launchers.

Watch the whole clip.  Last minute has graphic images.

On this episode of China Uncensored, Chris Chappell explains why the Chinese government doesn't allow its citizens to own guns.  HINT: its because they'd be able to fight back.  Forced evictions are on the rise as corrupt officials seize land from homeowners and offer little in the way of compensation.  Unless you count brutally beating people who resist as 'compensation.'  The results are "nail houses," solitary homes that are left sticking out of construction sites like giant nails.  And whether its self-immolation, homemade cannons, or even an online videogame, Chinese people are finding ways to fight back.
