A study by the Bangkok-based South-east Asia office for Non Violence International… showed that in Thailand:

- The victim knew the gunman in about six out of 10 shooting cases
- Almost half of all shooting cases are the results of conflicts or revenge
- Conflicts include domestic arguments and business disputes
- More than seven out of 10 deaths arising from the use of firearms are caused by handguns
- For injuries from firearm use, handguns are responsible for close to seven out of 10 cases

The study based its findings on 529 cases of firearm violence from January 2000 to December 2001.
