Even the Thais know that gun ownership just makes SENSE!
Thais shoot down Thaksin proposal to ban guns
BANGKOK - A proposal by Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra to make Thailand a gun-free society over the next five to six years has met with a poor response as more than 78 per cent of Thais want the right to hold firearms to protect themselves.
This is despite the open expression of support to ban firearms by most liberals and the media in Thailand.
A poll conducted by the Ramkamhaeng University found that 78.3 per cent of respondents felt they should be allowed to own guns - to protect themselves and their families from burglaries and robberies, especially while travelling.
