Stricter Firearm Regulations for Public Safety

Stricter Firearm Regulations for Public Safety

government agencies in Banglamung district, Chonburi province, called a conference to discuss growing concerns about public safety in reaction to recent frightening gun-related occurrences.
Mr. Phisit Sirisawadinukul, the district chief of Banglamung, served as the conference’s moderator. The conference’s main goal was to enact stricter regulations governing and controlling the use of firearms.

The decision was made in response to the sad events that occurred on October 3, 2023, in the Siam Paragon shopping mall in Bangkok’s Pathum Wan area. During the shooting, a 14-year-old child used a modified blank gun. There have been calls for stricter gun laws as a result of the injuries and fatalities caused by this incident.
The Thai Ministry of Interior has implemented a number of policies and directives to allay these worries. Among these is the immediate stop of importing, trafficking, or carrying fake firearms, especially blank guns, through the issuing of permits. Moreover, the policy of granting new licenses for imitation firearms has been discontinued.

The owners of gun shops must also follow these new rules. The local registrar will need to be notified of any blank gun owners’ possession of blank guns, as well as their residential addresses, and firearms and ammunition will no longer be issued or imported. Under the Sports Authority of Thailand Act of 2015, licenses will only be issued to registered shooting sports associations that are legally recognized organizations.

The granting of permits for the carrying of firearms (Por. 12) will be abruptly discontinued.
