      Philippines, but being eroded heavily via ever-increasing paperwork requirements.

      There's no gun culture here, we're simply a turd world shithole with a ton of loose firearms while everyone of our neighbors have a very strict ban on firearms.

      People can't afford anything beyond a pistol and when they do buy one they don't really train nor use it often like your average burger, they just stash it in the closet and will only use it on the most extreme of circumstances.

      There's not a lot of ranges either and ammo is even more expensive since they're taxed heavily and purchasing power isn't the same.

      Our cops and soldiers don't even get that much range time, imagine how much less and prohibitive it is for normies.

        Philippines and Thailand both have civilian ownership of handguns.

        Indonesia statistically has one of the lowest gun ownership rates in the world.

      Definitely the Philippines.

      After WW2, there were TONS of discarded weapons on top of Guerilla captured weapons.

      This enabled communist rebellions for a few decades.

      Since the Philippines was within the US's sphere of influence, plus tons of US servicemen, gun ownership was also seen as not only manly, but necessary for protection.

      Because of the demand, entire backyard industries sprung up to clone firearms - in particular the 1911, which is funny because the gun and the cartridge was created basically to kill drugged up Filipinos with machetes and swords.

        Thailand has a niche firearm community. They might be one of the least restrictive on guns in Asia, but shit there is expensive as fuck. A glock 17 is like 3k. It seems like the actually owner and carry licenses are cheap though. Even if guns might not be super common due to cost, a lot of people would have some familiarity with them.
        Most men would have had handled shitty trainer rifles or beat up m1 garands and m1 carbines from their High School military training. I'm sure you guys have seen those "THESE HOT TRANNIES MIGHT GET CONSCRIPTED" shit. Those are the people who decided to not do the training in high school and instead would rather risk the lottery for conscription. Those who had their junk chopped off are exempt though.

        Airshit started in Japan as a way for no guns to be able to have somewhat of a facsimile of a gun. They use to be super detailed and stuff, but they turned into toys once the electric ones came out. Some of the old vintage shit is really cool, and expensive.

      Bro they ABOLISHED the Militias because during the Cultural Revolution, Mao Zedong went "do you know the Moderate CCP members like Zhou Enlai and Middle Classes are SECRET CAPITALIST PIGDOGS???" and the student-peasant militias took him to his word and began arresting, rounding up, and even massacring/executing Moderate CCP Members known as the Red Guards. It became so bad that when the Red Guards started fighting each other over who is more Radically faithful o Mao's Vision, this gave the Moderates (who fucking controlled the Army) an excuse to force Mao to stand down, disown, and arrest the Red Guards, leading to mass purges and executions of the Militias.

      When Deng & the moderate survivors of the Cultural Revolution came to power, the first thing they did was demobilize the militias, shut down the village/neighborhood armouries, and hand over internal security to a new professional internal gendarmerie: the People's Armed Police.

      Chinese militias weren't abolished because of authoritarianism, but because China was afraid that political factions WITHIN the CCP would use them to raise hell like what Mao himself did.

        Don't lie, falsefag, the Army was already under Lin Biao's control and didn't force Mao to disown the Red Guards. The retarded students that went around the whole country while their trip and foosmd was free and kept killing party cadres were just enough for Mao to say "oh shit".
        The People's Militia concept was actually destroyed by Lin Biao in the early 60s and only when he died in the ~~*plane crash*~~ did the other generals built the Militia back to actual numbers.

    No but China did have a long tradition of martial arts culture. This school of Martial Arts would claim it is fighting for justice, teach people how to punch, and then call for a grand revolt.

    The last major incident was with the Boxers. If it seems like today's martial art schools are muted and geared towards tourism and nationalism, the government probably wants it to stay that way.

    In the past, sword/crossbow culture was the norm in China for example, villagers were mandated to carry a crossbow against bandits as the government was weak. With a more powerful government, they confiscated the bows so that people were left defenseless. The policy continued to the modern day. Government fears rebellion.

      The government fears rebellion because it's happened so many times. Ancient China was equivalent in size and population to the Roman Empire, with just as many languages, and both were always having rebellions. They even got brought down by nomad hordes the same way. The difference is that China kept pulling it all back into one country. Rome wasn't reunited and the few occasions where it sort of happened, those being Napoleon and Hitler, left the same scars on European psyches that China's collapses and civil wars left on theirs. The major difference in culture is that China see those wars and resulting catastrophe as a result of weak government while Europe see them as a result of authoritarian, imperial ambition. So while the Chinese government fears rebellion, so do its people, and so long as the government continues to repress them the people will actually consider them to be doing their job correctly, meaning there is no need for rebellion.

        In so far that China continues to cater to the needs of the majority in suppressing the minorities. If the majority gets fucked by any sort of economic problems, the house of cards will collapse. There's no actual support for the government deep down, they only tolerate it so long as the majority has something to gain, not because of any fundamental truth, but because of changing winds.

        Both of you are wrong. Imperial-era Chinese governments did not prohibit commoners from owning weapons because
        1) despite centralization memes, it was impossible for the premodern Chinese state to run around and confiscate people's weapons in such a huge empire and
        2) despite the threat of rebellion, the fact that the Emperor's armies (the chief enforcers of the law & order) can't go around to police everywhere for fear of stretching military garrisons (i.e. fortified cities & fortresses) meant that an armed citizenry would be good for grassroots law and order. With the added bonus of a potential reserves for the military. In fact most dynasties empowered rural villages to police themselves & keep weapons for local defense, and tasked rural magistrates & prefects to train and lead these militias when needed, such as fighting bandits.

        Hence throughout Imperial Chinese history, the government (no matter how strong/weak the dynasty was) did not hold complete monopoly over armed force in the country and a vibrant militia scene was all over the realm: besides village militias, you had monastic paramilitary forces (like Taoist & Buddhist Warrior Monks), Biaoju (Private Security Companies), and mercenary armies ran by bravos.

        In fact during times of peace the militias ended up being better fighters than the army since they fought small anti-bandit wars while the army just sat in their garrisons lol

        What WERE policed were so-called "state weapons" which the Imperial Throne banned commoners from owning due to their perceived power. Like in previous dynasties you couldn't own a crossbow as a civilian. When guns & cannons were invented you couldn't own those either (except for that weird period in the Ming Dynasty where the military.

        Ultimately China lost its militia-mentality thanks to the events of the 19th & 20th centuries, where warlordism & civil war was so brutal that many disapproved of non-state actors having weapons.
