Guns Clubs in Hong Kong

    I recently blogged about the attitude expressed by Mainland Chinese towards gun ownership. I was pleased to learn that Hong Kong has a number of gun clubs. They can apparently own semi-automatic pistols, rifles and shotguns.

    One of their clubs, The Swiss Rifle Association Hong Kong ,was originally started by visiting Swiss Army officers and their British counterparts. They shoot Swiss-style competitions with Swiss military firearms and crossbows.

    It is bizarre when you consider that the region now has more liberal gun ownership (pistols, semi-auto full power rifles) than the UK, its former overlord, despite being part of communist China.
