Thailand The Land Of Peace & Guns | Point Blank

Thailand The Land Of Peace & Guns | Point Blank

1 in 7 Thais pack a weapon.That’s the highest firearm ownership in SE Asia. Until now,it wasn’t seen as a problem. But on 8 February, 2020,when a gunman stormed a mall & shot dead 30, injuring 5, people began to ask, does Thailand have a gun problem?

    ‘thailand had never seen a mass shooting like this before.’

    USA: first time?



  2. Dean watson on August 19, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    What’s with the background music



  3. Kiki Rose on August 19, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    You shooting on the range is the reason why you aim center mass instead of a leg or foot in an emergency or police shooting someone. It’s harder to aim at a limb and even more so on a moving target.



  4. Wasan S. on August 19, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Music too loud



  5. David on August 19, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    Dang Vice send this one back to the sound editors. The music is way louder than the people speaking.



  6. James healer on August 19, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    vice wtf is background music
    why is it front ground music



  7. Kris Eckhardt on August 19, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Stop the loud music PLEASE! You can’t hear the amazing dialogue for the hipster tunes.



  8. YoYnsd4 on August 19, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Vice could u fix the audio plss bgm is too loud in some parts



  9. Saman Yusoh on August 19, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    ช่องนี้แต่ละเรื่องมึงเสนอข่าวเนอะชั่วร้ายมากทำให้ประเทศอื่นดูแย่ไปหมดหลายประเทศอาทิกูไปดูมึงทำคลิปแปลกแปลก



  10. slick heisenberg on August 19, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Somebody messed up in post production. The Music is louder than the dialogue. Super annoying.
    I’d be so pissed if I worked on preparing the interviews and some lazy ass just pastes the audio track with their ‘athmospheric’ background music.



  11. Nora Trace on August 19, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Fire your sound engineer. He gone done fucked up with this one.



  12. The Novice Cyclist on August 19, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Can you sort the audio levels out and re upload so we can hear the conversations



  13. Kiki Rose on August 19, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    You still haven’t learned it’s not the guns it’s the person that wields it. If those people didn’t have access to guns they would use something else. It is easy to find ways to make a bomb. Or use a vehicle. For one on one there are other ways also.



  14. p k on August 19, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Music definitely too loud…can’t hear the dude talk…



  15. Jekka214 on August 19, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    The music in the bg is just x~°



  16. truth decay on August 19, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    Why is the voice audio so quiet throughout? Seems like a mixing problem.



  17. liti on August 19, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Of you turn down the background music we will be able to hear what they say!



  18. 757 Productions on August 19, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    Bro the music loud AF



  19. bleep bloop on August 19, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    Interesting how the host keeps mentioning Buddhism. What does someone practicing Buddhism and wanting to possess the tools they need to protect themselves have to do with each other? It’s almost as though he’s saying he doesn’t understand why someone who’s Buddhist would want to take to proper precautions to be safe in this world. Must be nice living in that bubble of naive innocence.



  20. SpongeBob Squidward on August 19, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    Trash video 🚮🚮🚮 thanks to the “not necessary trash background sound” all the time



  21. Brett Felton on August 19, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    Everyone watching this video is going to die at some point and each of you will answer to God for every idle word spoken, deed done by your hands and the motivation behind it.

    Now, the evidence for this is that even if you say you don’t believe me, your conscience bears witness that I speak the truth and you know there is a creator to whom you will answer to one day. Are you ready? Your "good actions" you rely on are detestable to God, lest you try to negotiate your way into Heaven. Only by grace and through faith shall you receive salvation.

    Seek Christ while you still can, only He can forgive your sins. Repent and be born again, of water and the Holy Spirit. I say this without judgement and in absolute love when I tell you that Jesus is the light of the world, in Him there is no darkness.



  22. 757 Productions on August 19, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Why was the music so loud during the inter view at the shooting range? Lol



  23. S Turner on August 19, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Has this changed your life? How do you feel? Come on man…



  24. lexer quine on August 19, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    great editing, if you have surround speakers with perfect tune. if not then screw you



  25. Adam G on August 19, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    the guy that descided on the music volume during editing should be shot



  26. EK K on August 19, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    turn down the background music please



  27. SheepMan on August 19, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Your music was too loud for this video. Great video, thank you.



  28. Bright lights Dark city on August 19, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Why is the music louder then the gun guys voice when he has a good take on being a healthy responsible gun enthusiast..? Once again vice shits the bed on being unbiased with its journalism. I really used to believe in Vice. When they just presented the facts no matter how bad it seemed



  29. Kiki Rose on August 19, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    Last thing, Good for Thailand. I hope the citizens are able to keep the government from taking their rights from them. I don’t know what type of constitution they have or what it’s called but, self protection is an inalienable right to all peoples on the Earth. I do agree that some people shouldn’t be allowed to have them and here in the USA we need to do better. Actually enforce the laws all read in place on how can’t have them and back ground checks. But, they don’t have the right to tell us what kind we can have or use. Everytime they pass a law banning a weapon they are taking our rights.



  30. Joey on August 19, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Who turned the background music up louder than the conversations? It is so loud i turned the subtitles on but the music was drowning out the SUBTITLES!!! They are having a conversation and the subtitles just say "[Music]". Come on Vice



  31. drvais on August 19, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    For about 30 secs around the 16:59 mark the background audio gets so loud you can’t hear what they are saying



  32. Oskar Nygårds on August 19, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    The background music is way too loud…



  33. Kris Eckhardt on August 19, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Worst sound production ever.



  34. Jason Murphy on August 19, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    music too loud



  35. Internet Guy on August 19, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    The mixing is so bad, I can’t hear anyone talking I can just hear this DUMB MUSIC playing at such a high level I can’t understand or hear anything.

    Retrain your sound engineer cause this sounds horrible and i’m about to change it



  36. GhostPainter on August 19, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Turn the volume down on the music so I can fucking hear them talk



  37. Very Panda on August 19, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    VICE you need to re-upload this with the music turned way down. I can barely hear any of the interviews.



  38. ibiufos on August 19, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Get rid of the bloody music we can’t hear what you are talking about



  39. undrscr H on August 19, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    the editor must be deaf



  40. Bottleatonic69 on August 19, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Cant hear te conversation with all the guitar solo s



  41. hkhuhn1 on August 19, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Music too loud and I did not like guns being cast in a negative light.



  42. Chuck P on August 19, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Dear Vice I would have loved this video if the music was not so loud.



  43. Dean Reeveswhit on August 19, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Whoever did the music background needs shooting immediately. Way to loud in parts, shocking.



  44. Len Bones on August 19, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Do yall have no standards? This is vice yaĺl are the news Channel of hbo yet your sound mix makes this whole video unwatchable. There are people whose Channel is ran by themselves alone and haven’t èver posted such sub par àùdio…



  45. george clinton on August 19, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    Awesome reportage. Everything is well done. Except the balance^^



  46. Kiki Rose on August 19, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    The music during interviews made it hard to hear and understand the conversation.



  47. eazydazit on August 19, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    Sorry 10 minutes in, I couldn’t tolerate the loud music. Big fan of VICE otherwise



  48. GhostPainter on August 19, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    Vice is the Best



  49. fra Fra on August 19, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    The music made it hard to hear the people.



  50. fra Fra on August 19, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    I trust police to keep me safe, if they are there. It takes them 20min to get a police to my house on a good day. When a bear broke in to steel coffee, my wife had to wait over 30 min. She didn’t know it was a bear.
