Interior Minister Anutin Charnvirakul has signed a draft Executive Decree, exempting owners of illegal firearms, who surrender them to the authorities within a specific timeframe, from legal action.

 

The draft needs to be approved by the cabinet before it becomes enforceable.

 

Traisuree Traisoranakul, spokesperson for the Interior Ministry, said that 83% of criminal offences involving firearms, committed between 2016 and 2023, involved illegal weapons.

It's too easy to buy illegal guns in Thailand and with advent of 3D printers, it's getting easier and easier to make one.

I agree with dinsdale, I don't think it'll get any traction here....

Which will not in any way stop gun crime.

This type of amnesty was successful in Australia. It won't be here.

In the UK many years ago they had a "Handgun ban"  no ownership what so ever...

Achieved nothing, gun crime remained exactly the same.

The only thing that happened was many hand gun owners stopped sport shooting and many gun clubs went out of business.

I still retained my rifles for hunting and range work, but did miss my long range pistol shooting.
