British Man Arrested For Firing Air Rifle at Locals From 7th Floor of Condo

Recommended Posts

Quote

 

The weapon in his possession was identified as a GAMO air rifle which was seized by police along with two boxes of shot shells with a total of 25 shells inside.

Police also confirmed that Anthony had no licence for the weapon and will be charged for possession of an illegal firearm among other charges that are yet to be confirmed.

 

Thai logic at its best. 

 

What are the laws in Thailand like regarding airguns, by the way?

Some of us might have contemplated the thrill of such an act - but then, maturity and the recognition of consequences intervenes.  41 years old?

Yes, it's barely possible for a common bullet shot in the air to come down and kill someone, though it's more likely to maim. My son has a lead pellet in his leg from an old spring-operated air gun of his that was put away loaded and the thing went off.  Oops.  Doc said there was no need to dig it out.  That was some years ago.  I think this year he bought another 5 firearms or so.

He is a Farang, so he should go to court, get charged, and jailed, then warned that if he does something

else this stupid again, he will immediately deported.

Geezer

Here in Richmond, Virginia (USA), there were a couple of recent shootings where some guys rode around on scooters and shot people with paintball guns.  One guy they shot really good in the face!  It was ugly. Don't just tag the guy in the gut, shoot for the face.  Holy crap!

Does the sign indicate that it's OK to shoot pellets or whatever at anybody who steps on your lawn, take out someone's eye?

I think it's meant to be a joke; prefer a double-barreled shotgun loaded with rock-salt myself:

Addressing your point - a loud shout of "Run!" just before firing ensures the, hopefully now-fleeing, subject isn't hit in the eyes; of course, if he stands his ground you have a moral dilemma to resolve.

Well hopefully the punishment will fit the crime and send a message out 

But this is Thailand so a fine will be in place with a warning

should do a bit of time and if a expat living here 

threatened with deportation

Shoot for the face. That is what the bad behaved ones (always a Farang) do in Chaing Mai during Songkhran. Or shoot you straight in the ear while you walk by.

The answer to that is not OK 

My son and his friend were firing at targets in his garden from an attic room, missing the targets and some stray shots hit a window of a house.

They were met at thier door by an armed response team. Ended with suspended sentence.
