The story seems logical enough - the sort of person who would have to be so unrestrained that he would have to stop and pee in a bush is the sort of person that in the wild west of Thailand would keep a loaded gun in a car

I think in England it has to be a locked box secured in the boot of the car

Whenever a gun or section 1 ammunition is in transit, the certificate holder is required to take reasonable precautions for its safe custody, and a failure to do so could result in revocation or prosecution. Suitable measures will depend to a large extent on the circumstances, but the Home Office Guide on Firearms Licensing Law sets out steps the police are likely to consider as according with the duty: · Any firearms should be hidden, preferably in the locked boot or other secure load carrying area. · Vehicles which have to be left unattended for any length of time should ideally have an immobiliser and/or alarm fitted. · Where practicable, the bolt, magazine or other operating part should be separated from the firearm and either carried on the person or kept in a locked container, ideally secured to the vehicle or concealed elsewhere. · Where possible, ammunition should be stored separately and this too should be concealed from view. · Where possible, the vehicle should be parked within sight of the responsible person and in a position that would frustrate attempts to enter it unlawfully (e.g. with the boot close to a wall). · In estates and hatchbacks, the lid or cover of the load carrying area should be in place, and if ammunition has to be stored inside, it should be in a locked container ideally secured to the vehicle. ·

in a few locales you can link street attacks directly with the lost cause of the war on drugs, many crimes are inspired by protection of drug dealing turfs and other economic spin offs of poorly thought out prohibition practices.

The weapon was reportedly legally owned and licenced. 

To be licensed do you first have to have had certified firearms training in Thailand?

I wonder what will happen to the shooter?

RIP to the young lady but surely there must be some punishment issued.

I hope we hear more on this story.

Yes the follow up will be of interest.
