This morning I heard on AM radio that the PNP is inclined to propose to the Comelec that no exemptions be issued during the gun ban next year. Bummer!!

Now that's bad news! I wonder if the PNP is really serious about that.

No.

It's basically 30 days before and after the Election Period. Since 2010 is a Presidential Elections, then it will be about 90 days of campaign period. So it should be around 2nd week of January to 2nd week of June 2010... Provided, however, that the election period is not moved earlier as planned by the Comelec in relation to the 1st automated national election.

PNP wants no gun ban exemption in 2010 (http://www.philstar.com/Article.aspx?articleId=451468&publicationSubCategoryId=63)

MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine National Police (PNP) plans to ask the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to refrain from issuing any gun ban exemption during the 2010 election period to minimize poll-related violence.

PNP chief Director General Jesus Verzosa said the police are studying the possibility of asking the Comelec not to exempt anyone from the nationwide gun ban for the 2010 elections.

Chief Superintendent Josefino Cataluña, director of the PNP-Police Security Protection Group (PSPG), said the gun ban will cover not only candidates but also all government officials and civilians.

“The plan of the PNP chief is to request Comelec that there be no more gun ban exemptions so that during election period (there will be) total gun ban,” said Cataluña. “All security– not only for candidates, not only for government officials, but all VIPs, whether government or private individuals who require special protective custody during the election period” would no longer be issued gun ban exemption.

“All civilians, even PNP and other law enforcement and even the Armed Forces (are subject of the gun ban). Only those (soldiers, policemen, and other lawmen) on duty are allowed,” Cataluña added.

Cataluña said the PNP observed the prevalence of violence during the election period because of gun ban exemptions issued by the commission.

“Because apparently there is always a prevalence of violence during election period, and there were incidents before where two candidates who are vying for the same positions meet and they get violent and both of them have security,” added Cataluña.

For the civilian security personnel, Cataluña pointed out that the PNP Security Agency and Guards Supervision Division (SAGSD) might formulate a design for their uniform during election period so they can be easily identified.

PNP eyes tighter gun control measures
By Cecille Suerte Felipe Updated March 27, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Jesus Verzosa urged Congress yesterday to enact measures that would make illegal possession of high-powered firearms a non-bailable offense.

Verzosa cited a case in Pampanga wherein alleged members of a notorious bank robbery gang were arrested and charged for illegal possession of firearms.

The gang led by a certain Ampang Colangco went on with their robbery spree after the court allowed them to post bail.

Verzosa said the court allowed the suspects to post bail notwithstanding the large number of high-powered firearms seized from them by lawmen.

“The penalty for loose and unlicensed firearms should be higher. There ought to be levels of penalties for illegal possession of firearms depending on the number and type of firearms involved or when the offenders are known members of criminal syndicates,” Verzosa said.

Verzosa said the proposed measure should be implemented after the PNP’s “last gun amnesty,” which could take place during the third quarter of the year or a few months before the May 2010 general elections.

“If at all there will be another amnesty period for loose firearms, it will definitely be the last amnesty we are giving for holders of illegal guns, and our next move will be for aggressive operations against violators,” he said.

Verzosa said the government has repeatedly offered amnesty for loose firearms over the past 20 years, but the amnesty measures have not been successful in taking away loose firearms from illegal gun holders and criminal elements.

“We are recommending for yet another amnesty, but this time it will be complemented by other measures to ensure its effectiveness in accounting for more loose firearms than in previous amnesty periods,” Verzosa said.

“We are mindful of the possibility that an amnesty may actually induce gun smuggling into the country, and we are taking preemptive actions against this possibility.”

Verzosa said the PNP earlier proposed to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to stop issuing gun ban exemptions to civilians during the election period, and only allow members of law enforcement agencies, the police and the military to carry firearms during the election period.

The PNP is crafting a new gun control strategy that would effectively address the proliferation of loose firearms in the country, including stiffer penalties for illegal possession of firearms.

“The intention is to take away all instruments of violence from the landscape of Philippine politics and ensure totally peaceful elections in the country,” Verzosa said.

The centerpiece of the strategy is to encourage holders of loose firearms to register these guns and avoid prosecution for illegal possession of firearms.

The PNP has organized a three-day seminar and workshop at Clark Field in Pampanga that will discuss issues and concerns on firearms.

Talaga?! Can they disarm the private armies of politicians/warlords in the South? I-threaten lang sila ng mga Kangkongressman na tanggalan ng budget, ewan ko kung ma-enforce nila yan.

Di ba, kapag nag-lapse ang license mo at di mo na-renew, technically loose fiream na sya? If so, then this would be much, much worse than the old law on firearms in force at the time Robin Padilla was caught. At least dun, nahuli sa kanya sa labas.

Dito sa new proposal nila, anyone who will appear in their database with an expired license can be charged with this proposed no-bail illegal possession charge. Ang problema, paano kung parang GSIS sila na naaaapakabagal mag-update ng records? Renewed ka na pero sa records nila hindi.

Ang dapat siguro, no-bail if a crime was committed using a loose firearm. Dapat yung actually recovered or confiscated from the perps at hindi yung tinanim lang.
