Probably the most progressive muslim nation out there.

2018-07-14 13:11:17 UTC  

Oof

2018-07-14 13:11:47 UTC  

Are casings and primers regulated?

2018-07-14 13:11:47 UTC  

So theres people smuggling stuff through thailand

2018-07-14 13:12:21 UTC  

Like I said, just ammo, having components ias also treated at attempted manufacturing, so thats death as well.

2018-07-14 13:12:32 UTC  

Fuck me

2018-07-14 13:12:58 UTC  

I haven't the faintest how to make a primer and casings are a pain to make from scratch

2018-07-14 13:13:21 UTC  

Takes years to get a license even if you get everything done perfectly. Well making gunpower would already alarm the secret police.

2018-07-14 13:14:08 UTC  

If it's just the gun you're after I can send you some blueprints no problem but I think the secret police might disapprove of you having those

2018-07-14 13:14:36 UTC  

Even then, nothing I can do, machining parts is also not easy.

2018-07-14 13:15:01 UTC  

Eh

2018-07-14 13:15:02 UTC  

So I figured easiest thing is to pay smugglers to carry one across the border.

2018-07-14 13:15:13 UTC  

Only part you'd have to do yourself is rifling

2018-07-14 13:15:31 UTC  

You can split the rest among multiple machine shops

2018-07-14 13:15:48 UTC  

Don't give any one enough of an order to make it obvious it's a gun

2018-07-14 13:15:50 UTC  

Or just make one from scratch, like a pipe, that also dosent solve the issue with ammo.

2018-07-14 13:16:13 UTC  

Well id love to own one, but with the penalties so steep its not worth it.

2018-07-14 13:16:37 UTC  

It will screw up the whole family. Too much to lose.

2018-07-14 13:17:01 UTC  

So bail

2018-07-14 13:17:34 UTC  

Well I cant just do that. People bailing is what keeps shitholes shitholes

2018-07-14 13:17:34 UTC  

Find the nearest US embassy, then go onto the street in front of it, proclaim yourself gay and/or atheist and run in

2018-07-14 13:19:44 UTC  

Dont get me wrong, I still love my country. Leaving wont fix it. And well, heres hoping that the stigma behind gun ownership here is gone but doing anything now will just get my family in trouble.

2018-07-14 13:20:12 UTC  

How are you guys ruled?

2018-07-14 13:20:38 UTC  

At least theoretically by an elected official of some type?

2018-07-14 13:22:22 UTC  

Its improving. Hence why I said I think its improving.

2018-07-14 13:23:00 UTC  

But the country has been so peaceful in terms of conflict that people see no need to protect themselves.

2018-07-14 13:23:22 UTC  

Yeah theres parties. And we elect representatives for each district.

2018-07-14 13:23:54 UTC  

Are they actually the ones with the power?

2018-07-14 13:23:58 UTC  

For example I vote on a district representative and the party that represents the state.

2018-07-14 13:24:26 UTC  

And then they end up electing people to handle each area.

2018-07-14 13:24:50 UTC  

Area of expertise I mean. So id say they do have power and are elected by votes

2018-07-14 13:25:24 UTC  

The guy in charge of finance now for example was picked by the party that won the entire electoral vote.

2018-07-14 13:25:30 UTC  

I mean, is it a "we're totally democratic guise" type of deal or actually one?

2018-07-14 13:26:21 UTC  

It looks like one so far. Its definately democratic now, opposition won for the first time since independence

2018-07-14 13:27:05 UTC  

Oh, it's actually improving then

2018-07-14 13:27:07 UTC  

Nice

2018-07-14 13:27:54 UTC  

Issue is, I feel like more time hasbeen spent on arresting the previous PM than ive seen on what the new party is doing. They are pretty qualified in my opinion, but they have alot of cleaning to do.

2018-07-14 13:28:53 UTC  

But I said crossroads. The party can end up becoming more like the eastern europeans, or the americans.

2018-07-14 13:29:55 UTC  

Eh, Eastern Europe these days isn't that bad

2018-07-14 13:30:30 UTC  

Unless you've got a direct border with Russia, that is

2018-07-14 13:31:23 UTC  

Well assuming it exists in a vaccum.
