Reuters: Friendly Thailand stares down the barrel of rising gun crime
"Thailand has the highest number of guns in civilian hands in Southeast Asia - almost four times more than the Philippines, a country notorious for violent gun crime."
"Thailand has the highest gun murder rate in Asia, according to www.gunpolicy.org, a site hosted by the University of Sydney's School of Public Health in Australia. There were 5.3 murders by firearms per 100,000 people in Thailand in 2011, compared to 0.2 in the Philippines, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime reported."
