Suppressors are soon to be illegal in Taiwan.

Civilians in Taiwan are not allowed to own firearms, but suppressors are 100% legal. Gangsters had legally imported PPK and TT-33 airguns from China and Russia, converted them into firearms and murdered dozens of people in the last few years. Some suspects used suppressors on their guns so they can reduce the blast and sound. Now the Taiwanese Government is going to ban airguns and suppressors.

    Happened to us in the 30s, anon. Shit sucks.

      This is likely a legal effort designed to allow customs to crack down on imports, which would go into the hands of gangs, in order to make ownership of suppressors more painful anon. Things get 100x harder when you're an island country and customs bans import of a thing.

      Stricter gun laws do reduce gun-related violence. It's not nice but it does work.

        It only ever reduces suicides. Criminals won't obey gun laws.

          they don't really reduce suicides either considering they still leave plenty of other ways to end it

    Why not implement a ban on guns not registered for hunting? I know tribes legally can own homemade rifles.

      Those homemade rifles probably killed more innocent people than deers, I don't want to be racist but those indigenous peoples usually have shitty trigger discipline.

        It would help cut down on crime from illegal guns though and you could throw book at them harder.

        Then you'd either go without or have a suppressor issued to you as a member of the militia. Your issue seems to be access to firearms anyway, why not campaign for that instead?

      Those airguns were made from steel, they only have to change the barrel, magazine and several springs.

        Bullshit. Their principle of operation is completely different. Their shells are just cosmetic and might a well be made of plastic. Taiwan is just making up an excuse to ban airguns.

              What's the fricking point of an air gun then if you still need 90% of a real gun?? Did they just use the grip and stock of a real gun? Why not just fabricate them yourselves at that point? Or better yet, just use the real gun?

    Proofs? Places to read about this stuff? (In ML translation is fine for me.)

    I'm probably the only non-taiwanese who makes threads about taiwan here, but I still feel like I know jack-shit about your small arms. My understanding of your situation is roughly:

    (1) Your MIC has constraints on arms manufacturing.

    (2) As a result, you have effectively no pewpew sector but you do have a relatively large airgun sector.

    (3) Your airgun industry is /already/ hinded by a nearly nonexistent domestic market, but stays competitive with the likes of turkshit because of overall taiwan manufacturing advantage.

    (4) Society has been somewhat warming to airshit since ukraine 2022, particularly as a training proxy for civil defense.

    How wrong is all that?

      Airsoft and airgun are two different things, the government is going to ban airguns that can be converted into firearms. The airsoft is still legal here.

      said, those Chinese PPKs and Russian TT-33s are real guns with "airgun" inners. You can still buy them on the Internet, you can get one for about 800 bucks.

        Ain't the main trade organization the "airsoft & airgun association"? I mean, they have a whole section dedicated to airshit at TADTE. Where's the protest from the guys who are supposed to be protesting?

    Why would you need to own a gun when the war comes you'd be issued one? You might even be amongst those draft dodgers trying to flee the country.

      is this truly worth bothering with? especially when you ban fricking airguns?
