Thailand has a gun problem the highest gun death rate of 50 asian nations, twice the US rate. estimated 6 million guns out there they know of, but more than likely 10 mill with illegals.

Thats about one in five people have a gun.

The enlightened one take no notice off this growing problem, or the maniac killing going on on the roads, no doubt drugs are helping fuel the gun problem, remove the guns ban them, if it gets worse then no more tourists in another ten years time just gun slingers and cowboys on the roads.

Whenever a mass shooting occurs, a debate about gun violence ensues. An often-cited counter to the point about the United States’ high rates of gun homicides is that people in other countries kill one another at the same rate using different types of weapons. It’s not true.

Compared to other countries with similar levels of development or socioeconomic status, the United States has exceptional homicide rates, and it’s driven by gun violence.

Strongly suggest you do a bit of research instead of writing a load of rubbish. Go look on the internet.........Thailand hardly features in the statistics compared to places like Paraguay, Phillippines, South Africa USA and so on.angry.png

Is this a statement of pride mentioning Sydney / Melbourne? Fact is the gun violence in Thailand is more than the USA and I am guessing a lot more than Australia. Because countries have significant gun violence that is not a good reason to promote it

Yes, execution style murders are so uncommon in the UK that a "not so nice" person (made his millions in time share scams) was shoot and it took them 6 days to notice the bullet holes.

I thought it was one more killing, but this story is really last week's old local news – in Samui TV News they talked about land dispute over some plots near the airport, worth 100 million baht due to location; more persons from the family should have been killed (shot?) earlier. Unfortunately not first we time we hear stories about fatal dispute over land and the like, and that seem to happen all over Thailand...

Shooting somebody fits in well with the TIT mentality. In the wider world guns are usually considered the cowards weapon of choice Taking out a gun and shooting someone takes no guts at all. Facing up to someone face to face and fighting it out does. As we know that is not the Thai way. So either adopt the six onto one with machetes approach or use a gun.

Thailand continues to self destruct. I don't know how many nails are needed to nail down a coffin lid but Thailand appears to be well on it's way. It is such a shame as there are some wonderful people (my in-laws for example) and it is a beautiful country.
