The role of legally registered firearms
Two organizations are responsible for firearm statistics of the national level in Thailand -- the Department of Local Administration who register and issue permits to possess and carry firearms, and the Royal Thai Police who issue permits to transfer firearms.
Civilians are allowed to possess only certain types of pistols and rifles.
