Nature is nature. Regarding Asians: I feel mainland Chinese general behavior, as experienced by outsiders, is a byproduct of overpopulation, rat race competition, and life standardization. Such an environment is not unique to mainland Chinese. Similar results may be seen in other areas of the world with similar environments. Regarding Guns: Lawfully owning guns will not make one safe. A well armed undercover police officer in Mexico was targeted for immediate execution. He was driving a pick-up truck I believe. At a traffic light, on plain daylight, a shower of machine gun fire rained on him from multiple directions. They found his awesome-sauce .38 and some other random high power automatic rifles in his truck... along with his jaw on the windshield. A friend of mine who is crazy about guns, particularly Glucks, needs another gun-safe. I think it's the third time someone brakes into his house and steals his gun. Not owning guns, owning guns, I think maters little. Guns are going to be around regardless. Regulations are IMO rules to be enforced by law-enforcement. Law-enforcement can and will be circumvented. It's defined as crime these days. Whatever sort of authority exists at any given time, nature will circumvent it. One adapts and does one's best to be happy and safe. A piece of paper will be piece of paper. And nature will be nature.
