In recent protests in Myanmar, some demonstrators used homemade weapons, which increased the seizure of privately owned guns and weapons by the Myanmar military.
On April 2nd, local time, in Binmana Township, Naypyidaw, the capital of Myanmar, local security forces worked door-to-door with the village head, informing the villagers that they would be exempted from prosecution if they voluntarily surrendered illegal weapons. After a long negotiation, the villagers surrendered 146 long guns and 44 short guns to the security forces.
Most of these homemade guns collected so far are easy to assemble, mostly original gunpowder guns, but also air guns assembled with pumps.
In addition, according to Myanmar state television, the Myanmar military has recently seized a certain number of homemade weapons in Yangon, Mandalay, Baksen, Bin Ulun, Monyuwa and other places.
