Seized firearms from violators

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) gun ban will come to a close as the election period ends tomorrow, (June 12).

This gives way for gun owners to carry firearms outside of their homes as long as they have the permit to do so.

The Philippine National Police (PNP) has recorded more than six thousand violators of the gun ban since it was launched on January 13.

More than five thousand guns and close to fifty thousand deadly weapons were confiscated by the authorities.

PNP spokesperson PCol Bernard Banac said, “lahat ng mga ito ay nakalaboso at sinampahan ng kaukulang kaso. Doon naman sa mga pulis na lumabag ay meron po silang kinakaharap ngayon na kasong administratibo dahil sa paglabag sa ating mg alituntunin at patakaran [all of them were detained and were filed cases against. The police officers who violated (the gun ban), are now facing administrative cases for violating our rules and regulations].” (with details from Lea Ylagan) /mbmf

MANILA, Philippines — Patuloy na nadadagdagan ang lumalabag sa COMELEC gun ban mula nang magsimula ang election period.

Base sa datos ng PNP nasa 2,287 na ang naaresto kabilang na rito ang mga sibilyan, pulis, sundalo, BFP personnel, elected at government officials, security guards, CAFGU, mga empleyado mula sa ibang law enforcement agency at iba pa.

Samantala, mas paiigtingin pa ng pulisya ang mga ipinatutupad na police checkpoint sa iba’t-ibang lugar sa bansa habang papalapit ang halalan.

Paalala ng pamunuan ng PNP, iwasan ang pagdadala ng mga ipinagbabawal tulad ng baril at bladed weapons upang hindi makasuhan. (UNTV News)

MANILA, Philippines — Matapos ang eleksyon noong Oktubre 28, umabot na sa 622 ang naarestong indibidwal ng Philippine National Police (PNP) na may kaugnayan sa umiiral na COMELEC gun ban.

Subalit walong araw matapos ang araw ng halalan para sa barangay, patuloy pang lumulobo ang bilang ng mga nahuhuli na ngayon ay 732 na.

Malaking bilang dito ay sibilyan (675), 9 pulis, 8 sundalo, 9 opisyal ng gobyerno, 3 cafgu, 27 security guards at isang law enforcer.

Ang pagkakahuli sa kanila ay resulta ng mga isinagawang checkpoint at iba pang police operations.

Dahil sa patuloy na pag-akyat ng bilang ng mga nahuhuli, muling nagpaalala ang PNP na hindi pa tapos ang gun ban.

Ayon kay PNP Spokesman Sr. Supt. Wilben Mayor, sa Nobyembre 12 pa opisyal na magtatapos ang umiiral na gun ban.

Paliwanag ng pulisya, ang pagdami ng bilang ng mga nahuhuling gunban violators ay bunga ng agresibong kampanya ng pulisya.

Subalit pangamba ng ilan, kung sa panahon ng may gunban marami ang nahuhuling nagbibitbit ng baril, paano na kaya kapag walang gun ban.

Bunsod nito, balak ngayon ng PNP na ituloy-tuloy ang kanilang mga operasyon upang makumpiska ang mga loose firearms kahit tapos na ang election period.

Una nang sinabi ni DILG Secretary Mar Roxas na kung epektibo sa pagsugpo ng pagkalat ng baril sa lansangan ang gun ban, maiging hindi lang tuwing may eleksyon ito isagawa. (Victor Cosare / Ruth Navales, UNTV News)
