text/”Outlook” Newsweek reporter Wang Xiaolei
6 月 5 morning 10 am, Jiangxi Jiujiang Lushan District Public Security Bureau office, a drug man hurried to escape the gun, resisting arrest, two minutes after the police captured him.
local police told the “Outlook” Newsweek correspondent, the man held a pistol to imitate 64-style pistol, and lethality similar to the regular 64-style pistol, when the gun was seized, there are still four bullets have been loaded . Currently, the police trace the source of the firearm is in full swing.
staff reporter subsequent investigation found that many real to the enemy’s guns for sale to buy the channels are open in the form of almost a half there.
6 9 th evening 22:14, a number of online “selling guns” of information, correspondents selected at random a tail number 0188 phone number, asking whether to buy binoculars shotgun.
a fluent Mandarin speaking is not the man readily told reporters that more than 3800 yuan a double-barrel shotgun, with 200 rounds of ammunition, gun oil, holsters and other readily available, can be on-site inspection gun. Further inquiry in the reporter, the man began to seem impatient, abrupt end the call.
similar information on the Internet when up to tens of thousands. Endangered ban not only difficult to repeat the information must, in reality, due to poor public management and use of guns led to the tragedy also occurred. Recently caused a public sensation Yongzhou Lingling District Court gun case, once again exposed the loopholes in gun control. Public doubt reboot: how to manage the gun? How to manage the gunman?
not fly the gunman
gradually restored by the media revolver Lingling the whole story in court, not difficult to find, Zhu Jun, the parties had gun owners and the general staff conversion between multiple roles. He was by ordinary mail transport workers into the armed escorts, after temporarily leaving guns, transferred to the administrative office opened car, and soon transferred back by the police to prostitution. There are no reports so far have confirmed that exposure to gun each time before he received enough time, enough of formal professional training.
the contrary, the media one week before the incident Zhu for gun maintenance, has also asked: The first clip runs out, change cartridges, you need to pull the bolt? If this detail is true, then shows him as a security chief, actually not familiar with their firearms.
before the incident, his mental and physical condition, how? Has disclosed the fact that he knew his suffering from cancer, there is no doubt different from normal mental and physical condition. Some media reported that his hair almost fall out, a serious decline in hearing, as it seems, he is likely unable to perform their duties properly, obviously not suitable to engage in high-risk occupation. The unit leaders also said in an interview, knew He was jealous, revenge is strong, should not touch guns, to be removed from high-risk occupation is the most appropriate way.
Unfortunately, Zhu still manages a few guns, with many rounds of ammunition, and relies on a “to the PUC test gun,” able to freely dispose of quite a long time these weapons, until the wine into a tragedy.
recent years, similar to the armed escorts shooting innocent events are not uncommon. April 24, Qitaihe City charge money for people Wuxi Wen member of a cow head shot, causing his death, has led to a public shock. For the armed escort personnel management issues questioned the use of firearms has never been interrupted. Temporarily set aside personal moral quality, work pressure, etc. aside, the gunmen whether to accept a strict “job” training, scientific management, as well as the psychological state of the system evaluation? Before the tragedy, there can be some kind of “gun” system has been carefully executed to ensure that they maximize the skills of qualified, well-being?
a revolver users in Lingling court commented after the news: a man casually go through some training and so-called political censorship, a practitioner can. How this can prevent the next Zhu appear?
gun control of “elastic cycle rate”
firearms law in China has always been strictly controlled. If large and small, the use of firearms management system can be executed meticulously, guns, ammunition storage, requisitioned, the return of strict procedures, specifications, then Zhu basically no security team could take away almost all firearms to the court the attack.
as a safety valve, “a full-time guard escorts the use of firearms regulations,” provides, according to the law with a guard, escort official gun of the unit shall set up a special gun vault (room) or using a dedicated safe , will be equipped with guns, ammunition, centralized storage. Firearms and ammunition must be kept separate, the implementation of double double-lock, and 24 hours a day. Storage of firearms and ammunition library (room) doors and windows must be strong and install anti-theft alarm facilities.
as a security captain for Zhu apparently not affected by these restrictions. Currently, suspected of dereliction of duty gun control Lingling district post offices guns administrator, Office of the Chief Security Minister, Branch branch secretary and other three managers have been prosecutors for investigation.
According to our reporter observed, in recent years, some units or departments in the management of the use of a firearm, it seems there is a cycle rate of the cycle: for convenience, relaxation of the internal program management personnel to use firearms, resulting in rules and regulations as decoration; when individuals misuse of firearms led to the tragedy, the media boiling, higher accountability, they often become hot potato guns, when used or not, at the sudden impact of the emergency and the fight against crime.
Chongqing Academy of Social Sciences Institute of Law experts Ting is said that one died, and disorder of the cycle rate, in almost any field of social management is reflected, but gun control is particularly difficult on you. The beginning of a system can be curried, but with the passage of time, often they loose.
“is now prominent in the social conflicts, management and use of firearms to grasp the scale presented a greater challenge for some time, due to some local one-sided emphasis on economic development, social management of light, light humane care Some people have grievances, gun control increasingly become a ‘double-edged sword’. “Ting is that the current should be strict in the management of firearms in use to protect the public interest and should be most people’s lives and property safety of principle, “The armed personnel access should be strictly for the mental disorder, history of pathological intoxication, emotional instability and other mental disorders who, determined not armed.”
illegal firearms is control key
get guns if Zhu is due to its armed escorts for special status, then the easier for ordinary people to obtain, and dispersed the private sector how to remove illegal guns?
Ting is said that although the official gun assault incidents are often susceptible to more attention, but because of the overall management of such firearms are more strict now constitute a crime involving firearms is still mainly non-firearms, including home-made ball guns, shotguns, imitation firearms. This type of firearm manufacturing is relatively simple, low technical requirements, is the control of the important and difficult.
In recent years, crimes involving firearms and explosives in some areas increased exponentially, repeated underground trade of illegal firearms, some of the authenticity of the enemy’s guns and even the sale of information in the form of a semi-open there.
risk related to such information, authorities are to be a strong blow. Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau Security Administration Corps has informed, since March this year, police have removed the Internet sale of firearms, knives, explosives and other illegal 170 million pieces of information, close illegal websites 6. For publisher information, the police will be “ground trace”, directly held accountable.
in Chongqing police carried out “off the gun with violence” operation, the police transferred off-site, long-range raid, and seized various types of guns 1717, destruction of manufacturing firearms “Underground Arsenal” 4, the system dens 11 gun trafficking. The first quarter of this year, Chongqing gun cases fell 29%.
“for the online sale of firearms and other means of buying channels, in addition to large-scale inventory and collection, it should ask several questions: the gun come from? Whether the management of storage systems and guns incomplete, and disposal of firearms there are loopholes in the destruction process? the only way to radically cut off the source of illegal guns. “Ting-cheng. □
“Outlook” article: control of bullets unremittingly
this year March 1 to December 31, public security organs to carry out treatment to deploy explosive and firearms special action to strengthen the explosives, firearms, ammunition and other dangerous goods management, prevent knives and other cases involving explosives and firearms accident.
Ministry of Public Security also issued a “collection of explosives, firearms, ammunition and other dangerous goods notice” will be carried out during the special operation in Zhibaoqiqiang explosives, firearms, ammunition and other dangerous goods centralized inventory collection action . Meanwhile, the Ministry of Public Security “masses knife crimes involving explosives and firearms award criteria”, the highest given for meritorious staff rewarded 20,000 yuan.
China has banned the illegal possession of firearms and strict control of firearms policy. Back in 1996 enacted the “Firearms Law” clearly provides that any unit or individual of illegal possession, possession of firearms are considered criminal acts. In “Criminal Law” and other laws, also clear the illegal manufacture, sale, transportation, mailing, storage of firearms, ammunition, explosives, is illegal.
the United States in 2007, the Virginia Tech campus shooting occurred after the Ministry of Public Security spokesman Wu Heping made it clear that China has gun control laws, guns, in addition to carry out its respective duties can wear, others not at liberty to give and accept to carry. The Chinese government and police for guns that are likely to become perpetrators of the murder weapon has always been strictly managed.
Wu Heping, said: “As a reference, this incident warns us from the other side, police equipment to strengthen the management of firearms, good law and order.”
2009, the Ministry of Public Security from late March to October 31 in a nationwide campaign to prevent gun-related crimes against the special action, calling on the local public security organs for criminal activities involving firearms and practical efforts to solve outstanding problems in gun crimes, the collection group dispersed in the community of illegal firearms, illegal trafficking of guns destroyed a number of criminal gangs, destroying a number of dens of illegal manufacturing of firearms, illegal trafficking in firearms determined to destroy the network, blocking distribution channels of illegal trafficking of guns, gun control efforts to maintain order, so criminal activities of making and selling guns illegally significantly reduced gun crime cases decreased significantly, to ensure that no serious harm, a significant adverse impact on gun crime.
as of August 31, 2009, the public security organs did not check the types of guns seized 52,906, collection did not check more than 200 million rounds of ammunition, imitation guns, 12 million sticks.
gun to strengthen public administration, to further improve the professional quality of the grass-roots police barrel and management level, Ministry of Public Security Bureau in July 2009 in the Chinese Criminal Police Institute, organized a national firearms management of public security organs training courses, from all municipal departments are responsible for public security organs working gun control 77 participants attended the training.
in the national fight against evil forces in the fight against gun crime has also been a focus. According to the Central Political and Law Commission a new announcement, from February 2006 to carry out struggle since, as of now, the country destroyed more than Mafia 1400, 1.6 million to eradicate evil one, uncovered more than 120,000 criminal cases from and confiscated 3,400 firearms branch.
despite the “strict control of firearms and ammunition,” the specific deployment, but in some areas, illegal manufacture, sale, storage, possession of firearms and ammunition, explosives, etc. still exist, even worse. Eliminate these public safety risks, but also all localities and departments to increase the rectification, adhere to the law “The Missing Gun,” “destroy the gun” to ensure a stable and secure social order. □
