CHANTABURI:-- A Chantaburi man made guns to order and advertised his wares on Facebook before sending them through the post.

Police announced the arrest of Supharp Wannarit, 27, in Pong Nam Ron district after a raid was mounted at his workshop in the eastern seaboard village, reports Thairath.

Supharp admitted that he sought customers through a closed page called "Chang Top Charoen Yon."

He referred to himself as 'Chang Top.' Chang means engineer or handiman.

He would take orders for his guns on Facebook and when he received the money transfer would make them and then send them out in the post.

When police came calling he ran away but was soon rounded up and faced with the evidence of a lathe, tools, gun parts, ammunition and rifles in his possession he owned up.

He told investigators that he sold the guns, mostly air rifles, for 3,500 to 5,000 baht a pop. He was charged with assembling guns and possession of guns without a licence.

2,000 Baht fine if lucky. Or 10 years down the brink and 20,000 Baht fine in the worst case.

If you possess, manufacture, use, sell, purchase, order, or import firearms and/or ammunition without a license from the local registrar for doing so, you will be subject to imprisonment for a period of between one and ten years, and/or fines between 2,000 to 20,000 Baht.

In Switzerland, every homeowner is required to have a gun and ammunition. Every one. Gun crime is rare. I*t's the culture, not the prevalence of firearms that makes for Thailand's dismal statistics. Take away the guns and you might as well take away the machetes, hoes, mattocks, screwdrivers and hammers the populace will use instead of guns. See Australia and Britain for violent crime after the guns were grabbed.

Every home owner is required to have a gun??? Including blind people, people with mental\psychiatric issues, people with criminal records???

I call bullsh*t, and searching online reveals nothing more than Switzerland has a fairly high rate of gun ownership per head of population , but not as high as Germany, France or Austria. It would also seem that the vast majority of men between the ages of 20 and 34 are conscripted into the militia and undergo military training, including weapons training, meaning they are likely more fit and proper people to be in charge of a firearm.

Might have been arrested because he was selling cheaper than the American arms industry. Should have stayed off Facebook.

how ignorant can he get thinking he can just set his page or group as closed and get away with it lol. What he needs is to just manufacture and someone else to do the distribution for him.

Go argue your point with the Swiss residents here in, several of whom have told me the same story. Your first question is ridiculous on its face. Just because you call it BS, it neither makes you Swiss nor an expert.

Sorry but your statement on gun ownership in Switzerland is simply no longer true, and in fact gun, ownership there has decreased. Today Switzerland requires citizens to have a reason to have a gun, and you need to go back to the permitting authority every six months to a year or so to assure them the reason is still valid.

Switzerland does not promote gun ownership and has been moving away from having widespread guns. Swiss laws are done canton by canton. Everyone in Switzerland serves in the army, and the cantons used to let you have the guns at home. Today, they’ve been moving to keeping the guns in depots, not in the household.
