Tragedy in Chiang Mai as six year old shoots elder sister dead with dad's gun

Not an argumentative comment, genuine curiosity. Does this really happen a lot in the US? I know the US has this (in my opinion) crazy and outdated law on gun ownership but I always thought that the storage of guns in the home was strictly adhered to, in other words no loaded gun stored at home.

 

It's an unbelievable scenario when someone so young gets killed by another child in a stupid, pointless and completely avoidable accident. I do wonder how it will effect the young boy because he is old enough to remember at 6 years old.

 

My last point, are there no laws on gun ownership in Thailand? Do you need a permit? Does the gun have to be registered?

Pushing the envelope of the ignorance and self righteousness of the Thai Visa commenters.  Giving a determination about something then asking about it in the same breath.  It's totally amazing idiocy,  and then there's the other things he's saying---which are all wrong naturally.

Assuming this is a serious question, let me explain:

There are certain persons who seek to do harm against other people. Usually, this is due to such reasons as seeking personal gain at someone else's expense, lust, or simply sadistic behavior. Banning guns will not change that.

 

Unfortunately not everyone is as brave, as tough and as skillful in unarmed self defense as all of those anti-firearm lobby hypocrites. Some of us are elderly, some of us have physical disabilities and some of us will find ourselves simply outnumbered by criminals taking advantage of us at vunerable times.  The firearm does nothing more than give the owner a chance to protect their own lives. It's a chance. Not a 100% guarantee. But your right to life is a basic human right. Taking away your right to protect your life because of what someone else, who you never met, did makes no sense. Firearms are the equalizer.

 

And if you still don't believe me, ask yourself......if you ever find your self in a life threatening situation, then who you going to call? It's going to be to a man (or woman) with a gun to come to your help.    

That's so silly. Bless.

Hard to say anything about wasting young life and about especially idiot parents.

Yes, you need a permit and I would guess it is extremely unlikely the father had one.  He is quite likely stateless, which would render ineligible for a gun permit, unless he has permanent residence.  Even if he could get a permit, I doubt he would have paid the sky high prices for a registered firearm

 

They are nearly all documented in these villages nowadays,  relatives will come from Burma to visit and work without documentation

 

In Lisu and Lahu villages the guns come out at Chinese new year, the legal owner of pistols will be the Head man and or deputy village head, shop/business owner and maybe the school headmaster or other goverment official. Also Lisu volunteer border guards were armed years back with carbines but disarmed due to reckless behaviour at New year...

 

There are illegaly held weopons usually the long muskets a hunting rifle or a single barrel shotgun.. I've seen pump action as well.

A BB gun?

But I agree, guns are not for people who can't handle them.

NEVER leave a gun where a child can find it, and NEVER let a child play with a gun.

Utter nonsense.  The girl is dead because it was IMPROPERLY stored.  

It's not nonsense at all, it is a completely factual statement. if he did not have a gun stored in his house (however he stored it) the this tragedy would not have happened.

 

I don't mind if you have different views about gun laws but I don't want to debate them thank you.

What are you talking about? Where is the self righteousness? How is it ignorant to state you don't understand something? How is it "totally amazing idiocy"?

 

This a forum for debate and thats exactly what people are doing, including me. Your rudeness, unnecessary and inappropriate post has contributed nothing to this forum at all. 

 

If you see my post as idiocy because I am inviting comment then don't participate, why would you? Go and do something else instead. I will never understand people who abandon all sense of civility just because they are sitting behind a keyboard.

 

Have a good day.
