Singapore: Gun control
The severity of the penalties and the generally low incidence of violent crime leads the country's Police Force to claim that illegal arms possession or smuggling is not a significant problem in Singapore.
However, given that some 60,000 commercial vessels pass through the Port of Singapore annually, it would be extremely difficult to totally prevent any movement of illegal small arms into or through Singapore.
