Tourist Areas to Be Gun-Free Zones
10 October 2001
Cabinet yesterday approved a draft bill banning guns in specific tourist zones to ensure the safety of visitors.
The zones are Pattaya City in Chon Buri, the municipality of Chiang Mai, the entire Phuket province, the municipality of Hat Yai in Songkhla and Samui district of Surat Thani.
Under the draft bill, anyone carrying a firearm in these areas would be liable to six months to 10 years' jail and/or a fine of 10,000 to 200,000 baht, even if they have a licence for the weapon.
