Actually it is Brazil that is gun violence capital of the world  with 23 deaths per 100,000. USA is at 11 and Thailand 4  so it's got a long way to go.

A disgraceful and heinious crime that is another blot on the landscape of this country. Why was he still in possession of a gun if he was an EX cop? Far too easy to get weapons in Thailand. Soon it will be giving America a run for it's money as the mass gun crime capital of the world. So sad!
