Shooting-Gallery Owner Has Sentence for Gun Possession Reduced
(Beijing) — A woman who ran a roadside balloon-shooting gallery in Tianjin was given a suspended three-year prison sentence for the illicit possession of firearms on Thursday after lawyers challenged a previous verdict that caused a public uproar over its severity.
An appeal court commuted Zhao Chunhua’s earlier sentence of 3 1/2 years in prison, handed down after six of the weapons used for recreational purposes at her stall were identified by police as real guns.
