Ban on kitchen knives

WHEN in Pasay, leave your kitchen knives at home or you could end up in jail. Bent on making the city “100 percent” safe, the city council has passed on third and final reading an ordinance prohibiting the display or possession of kitchen or butcher knives of all sorts and sizes on the streets. “Knives have been commonly used as a tool to threaten, if not, inflict injury on victims [based on] the criminal acts that had been committed before on our streets,” stated the ordinance sponsored by Councilor Edita Vergel de Dios. She explained that the council had earlier passed an ordinance banning the possession of sharp and deadly weapons in public places, but it did not cover kitchen knives. “The city council acknowledges this issue and thus, will work further to ensure the safety of our citizenry,” Vergel de Dios said. Anyone caught violating the law would be fined P1,000 or face imprisonment of one month, or both depending on the court’s discretion. Jocelyn R. Uy

Naku, bawal pala si Remo sa Pasay City :)

Seriously though, thanks for the heads up. When will these people learn that it's not the tools but the users who are dangerous.

Bad trip 'yun ah! I never leave home without a knife in my pocket. To other knife carriers out there, check out Michael Janich's book "Street Steel" from Paladin Press. Available 'to sa Powerbooks. Janich discusses how to choose the right blade for your purposes and how to carry, deploy, and use it effectively. Most importantly, he also teaches the various knife concealment techniques available to a broad range of situations.

I hope my post does not raise any "illegal to discuss" flags. If it's illegal to carry a knife in Pasay, then I have space to carry 1 more extra mag for my Glock when I'm in the area.

pasig
sta. mesa
north edsa
malate

They are becoming more specific in their descriptions. It means less grey areas on what can be carried. ( There was a thread before discussing blade lengths / swiss knives. )

Other areas may start to follow suit.

Unfortunately, the scope on who can carry knives is not being expanded. They should consider including people who have gun licenses and / or ptc's. :supergrin:

just make sure its in a scabbard...:laughabove:

but seriously, i'm also hardly without some sort of edged "instrument"(sometimes i carry three!--a lock-back folder, a mini-tool and or a multi-plier/swiss army knife. or sometimes i carry 2-folders and a multi-tool.)in the course of my work as i hate biting off a packet of single-serve ketchup or ripping open a bag of chips! or maybe just to cut thru a bbq "liempo" served at the range. or worse, not having a bottle opener for san mig lights!

this kind of ordinance just widens the "gray area" of what you can or can't carry.

Stupid politicians,what next a ban on scissors?

I happen to carry a small pair of scissors on me most of the time, even in places where i don't carry my push dagger, is that banned in pasay too?

I wonder if bottle openers and letter openers are banned too?

These socialists are only helping the criminals with stupid laws like these.

I wonder how much should you bribe the policeman if you're caught, the fine is 1000 php, maybe a 500 will do?

So it means that if I bought a kitchen knife at SM MOA, I need to apply a sort of PTT so that I can legally bring my kitchen knife from the store to my house???

Kidding aside, IMHO that ordinance is unnecessary. There's already a law that prohibits carrying of deadly weapons...
