The debate over the need for a more strict enforcement of gun laws in China is mainly based on the argument that such enforcement could help in reducing violent crime. The year 1966 brought about changes for the Republic of China concerning gun laws and its effects on violent crime. According to Moxley (2010), Moa and the Communist Party implemented one of the strictest gun laws in the history of the world. Areddy (2008) included in his research the laws that were enforced “forbidding the private manufacture, sale, transport, possession, import or export of bullets and guns, including replicas” (p. A17). Even with the strict gun laws in China, gun crime is on the rise; each week there are reports related to gun associated crimes, but follow up on these cases is negligent. Areddy (2008) indicates that China’s zero-tolerance for guns and criminal acts involving guns does not coincide with the country’s constant raids, smuggling of guns, murder and gun related violence (p. A17). Moxley (2010) shows that for the last three years gun associated violence in China has been rare, but the recent accession in firearm related violence could be attributed to illegal businesses operations, increased media relevancy, availability of ammunitions, and to the lack of enforcement regarding gun laws. China, one of the largest manufacturers of guns, needs to have stricter enforcement of gun laws to reduce incidences of gun associated violence.
