Illegal hobby

In Malaysia, it is illegal to make air rifles, even as a hobby.

A man has been sentenced to life imprisonment for making air rifles as a hobby. The air rifles sold for RM300 each are being used for hunting wild fowls.

The High Court judge told him that he was lucky not to receive the death sentence under the Firearms Act 1960.

Justice Mohd Sofian told the accused: "You said this is merely a hobby but this is a dangerous one. If you do get a royal pardon, don't do this again.

"Now that you are going to jail, do learn appropriate skills like shoe-making or sewing. Repent, and accept your takdir (fate)."
