I remember this movie back in 1977 on the big screen, I was never really into drugs but a mate insisted I drop a half moon (trip) back then about 15 minutes before the movie in the car park.

 

I swear to you, we were in the movie.....lol

this guy has likely been dreaming of an opportunity  such as this for years

Come on guys, do not go down to the level of drunks that do not want to pay for their drinks but force entry into clubs. 
as for the guard, he probably knew who he was dealing with and in his perspective reacted proportionally.
As for @YetAnother I know many people but none that have sick phantasies like you.

Bouncers used to keep order with their fists,where I come from,

here they resort to guns,the wild east.

In my 15+ years on doors in Australia I’ve been attacked with chairs, bollards, bottles and a machete. I was once hit by a car driven up the footpath by one especially belligerent ejected patron 555 fun times

Why did this pr..k carry a firearm? 

Because the patrons also carry them, obviously.

In most "civilised" countries there are rules for bouncers. In the UK for instance:

 

Bouncers are legally allowed to do the following:

  • Issue verbal warnings
  • Ask you to leave
  • Check for ID
  • Refuse entry if you're too intoxicated, fail to comply with establishment policies, or engage in aggressive behaviour
  • Call the police
  • Protect innocent bystanders from violence
  • Break up fights they are not involved in
  • Respond with equal force if necessary

What are they trained to do?

Most bouncers are trained to resolve tense situations through verbal communication instead of physical force.

Their presence alone can be enough to deter patrons from aggressive behaviour.

 

What are bouncers not allowed to do?

Bouncers can't use force unless they are first threatened with physical harm.

So, unless they are physically threatened, they can't do the following:

  • Hit someone
  • Push or physically throw you out of somewhere
  • Restrain you in a chokehold (or in another way)

I guess the old saying "This is Thailand, we are different" applies here. Notice they are not allowed firearms.

Listen up! This was just a warning! Next time consider to drink the beer the bartender is recommending. You never now what will happen if you refuse.

And in civilized countries you resort to police to enforce domestic authority.

Here it's all self-administered justice.

I remember triple feature. All three Star Wars movies after each other on the big screen with great sound.

What a joy - even without drugs.

I don’t understand why you’re trying to compare though?

I can't speak for the US but the very few genuine UK Special Forces guys wouldn't be really interested.

 

There used to be quite a few barstool SF warriors but now that Thailand is closing the bars they may be hard to find. How they would get around the work permit problem I have no idea.

This happens on the same day as the Governor of Suratthani orders all venues to be closed down with immediate effect at least it wasn’t foreigners involved .

They couldn’t afford to pay 30 to 50,000 baht a day as that would be the going rate for retired Special Forces.

My thoughts are whether Thai bouncers have any formal training if any, are there any rules of conduct and what about personal firearms? I was giving an example of the rules of conduct in the UK. I'm sure may countries have the same however, I have yet to find anything similar listed in Thailand.  Is it wrong to compare?
