Mass murder in China. What? No gun?

China police arrest 'axe killer'

"Chinese police have arrested a man on suspicion of murdering eight
people in one night, state media have reported.

"Six of the bodies, as well as bloody axes and hammers, were allegedly
found at his junkyard in Hubei province. "

What's gun control like in China? As strict as, say, the UK or
Australia? I know in Australia they instituted gun control to stop
mass murders. Maybe they need to teach China how it's done.
