Goodbye Verzosa!

Today marks the exit cum "early retirement" of Gen Jesus Verzosa as Chief of the Philippine National Police. He is replaced by Gen. Raul Bacalzo as the new Chief PNP.

Verzosa's term will go down in history as one of the worst terms for a Chief PNP. Particularly, his two failed Consultative Gun Summits accomplished nothing by way of a consensus among the gun community regarding reasonable and sound polices and regulations. Policies on carrying firearms became unreasonably stricter such as prohibited inside-the-waistband carry, bag requirement, gun free zones. Licensing fees likewise skyrocketed twice it's original amount and Likewise the fees for Permits to carry and to transport, while becoming more restrictive and longer to issue, became more expensive by 20%.
