Of course Thailand need severe laws about corruption and vote-buying, but also about ownership of personnal firearms. In Europe Community it's not easy, then very difficult to own weapons... So this explains that... Thailand has to follow countries like EC and not this cowboy country like USA...

I am sure that the Police are out there actively investigating and looking for the perpetrators right away.
