Upon learning the National Legislative Assembly is amending the Firearms Act to ban foreigners from owning and using guns ( BP, Oct 13), I wonder if the new constitution will be amended to commensurately exempt foreigners from equal protection under the law.
Thai gun ownership is one of the world’s highest. There are already endless assaults upon foreigners, some involving violence in varying degrees, many examples of institutionalised discrimination and an established climate of xenophobia in Thailand, why not amend the constitution to reflect the facts as they are?
Katoey are people of the third sex; let’s simplify things and call foreigners people of the second class. MR M
