Video: Tiananmen Square Survivor Says 2nd Amendment is Key to Replacing Criminal Government

Last year, Kathleen and I visited China for three weeks. We spent time in Shanghai, Nanjing, Beijing, and other Chinese cities.

One of the highlights of the trip was Tiananmen Square. The area was fenced off with a number of other security measures in place including numerous police, surveillance cameras, and checkpoints.

Despite this corridor of security, Kathleen and I were identified as westerners and almost immediately waived in. The hundreds of Chinese awaiting entrance, however, were forced to undergo intrusive security screening, similar to what one could expect from overzealous TSA agents in the US.

While there, a man told us that during the 1989 Tiananmen Square uprising, the communist government had killed literally thousands of protesters, identified virtually every surviving participant, and incarcerated most of those survivors.


One of them, however, apparently made it out and became a US citizen in 2007. According to Townhall.com, this protester then recorded the following video regarding the incredible importance of the Second Amendment:

In this Tea Party speech, the naturalized Chinese-American citizen demonstrated an exceptional understanding of the Constitution and the Second Amendment. Among other things, he noted that

•”The power of the government is derived from the consent of the governed.”

•Chinese patriots in Tiananmen were crushed by “AK-47’s” because they could “not fight back” as they “were not armed.”

•The argument “that a man with a rifle has no standing against the military technology and machine of today” is ridiculous. 20,000,000 residents of Beijing would have quickly proved that wrong had they been armed in 1989.

•”When a government turns criminal, when a government turns deranged, the body count will not be 5, 10, or even 20. It will be in hundreds like Tiananmen Square, it will be in the millions…

•”When a government has a monopoly on guns, it has absolute power.”

•”When a government has all the guns, it has all the rights.”

•”To me, a rifle is not for sporting or hunting. It is an instrument of freedom. It guarantees that I cannot be coerced, that I have free will, that I am a free man.”

The Tiananmen survivor also weighed in on firearm magazine restrictions, like those proposed by a number of bills pending before the US Congress: “Now suppose the 20 million Beijing citizens had had a few million rifles, how many rounds should they have been ALLOWED to load into their magazines? Ten rounds? [crowd: No!] Seven rounds? [crowd: No!] How about three rounds? [crowd: No!]”

The naturalized US citizen continued,

Do not give up the fight, my friends. It may be a small step that you give up your rifle, or a 30 round magazine.

But it will be a giant leap toward the destruction of this republic.

Now, in closing, I will quote the words of Captain John Parker: ‘Stand your ground. Do not fire until fired upon. But if they want a war, let it start here!

    No matter how heartless they tell you that you are. No matter how crazy they say you are. No matter what vile names they call you. No matter how much they say that they only want “common sense regulations”. No matter when they come for the confiscation of your firearms. No matter how much they tell you that you are unreasonable. No matter how many graves they stand upon, in a vile attempt to shame you. No matter how many spin doctors put spin on survey questions. Remember this, NEVER GIVE AN INCH, as they have taken many yards already.

    It’s time to listen to someone who has been THERE. It’s time to say no to the Obabler schemes that will turn the country either to a Nazi like state or a commie state.

    Someone who has faced the tyranny of government is smarter than those living in this country now. We fought for our nation and its’ laws and now we have groups who want to tear us down piece by piece. It is an honor to have a man with this view be part of the USA, unlike some who would trample all our customs and tell us we are wrong.
