MAMANG PULIS -- ONLY one Permit-to-Carry-Firearm Outside of Residence (PTCFOR) will be issued by the Philippine National Police to licensed gun holders this time.

The “one PTCFOR policy” will be part of the much tougher gun control program in the country designed to arrest gun-related violence. Under the same policy, a PTCFOR will be issued to a licensed gun holder provided he or she complies with nine strict requirements, PNP spokesman, Chief Supt. Leonardo A. Espina said.

Espina said PNP chief, Director General Jesus A. Verzosa decided that a PTCFOR will be issued only for a handgun. “Those in possession of automatic rifles and machine pistols will not be given a PTCFOR,” he explained.
