Last community authorized to keep guns in China

Ethnic Miao(苗) man Gun Liangma, 44, takes aim during a performance for tourists in the village of Basha in Congjiang county, Southwest China's Guizhou province, May 21, 2013. The village, an old ethnic Miao settlement with a population of 2,200, is believed to be the last community authorized by the Chinese government to keep guns. Although people in Basha no longer subsist on hunting, guns and gunpowder pots have become part of their traditional dress, while firing towards the sky is seen as a ritual to welcome guests, according to local media.
