GUN FREE ZONES: IS THERE SUCH THING?

The latest buzz word of the anti-gun is the creation so so-called "Gun free Zones." Thus, according especially to our police, gun free zones ought to be established in certain areas such as malls, resorts, schools, and similar places, to eliminate the possibiity of violence and crime.

Are so-called areas that are declared as gun free zones really crime free? No.

As we have seen in recent events in the U.S. there appears to be no such thing as a Crime Free Zone. Schools such as Virginia Tech and Columbine High School have been examples of so-called gun free zones which were violated by the criminals with impunity. Even military camps like Fort Hood, a declared gun free zone even for the soldiers who were training there, got a nasty lesson in security when their very own US Army Major Hassan gunned down 13 people there.

Courts, in particular have alarmingly become the venues of horrific criminal acts. We recall the detention prisoner who produced an icepick and attacked the judge and held a stenographer hostage in Branch 88 of the Quezon City Regional Trial Court before he was disarmed by a prosecutor who happened to be armed with a Glock 26. In Las Pinas Branch 199, a family court, a disgruntled husband suddenly appeared in court and shot and killed his wife and her lawyer. And In Taguig, an angry litigant who wielded a hand grenade, held the netire branch of the court hostage before being subdued by a rescuing SWAT team.

PROGUN justices of the Supreme Court

With the current controversy regarding the appointment of the next Chief Justice of the Supreme Court who will succeeed CJ Reynato Puno we speculate if the next Chief will be PROGUN or not. The front runners for the position of Chief Justice are Justices Antonio Carpio and Renato Corona.

 

BOTH are shooting enthusiasts and PRO-GUN.

 

Justice Carpio is widely seen at AFAD Gun Shows in Megamall. An avid shooter, Justice Carpio was in charge of the firearms training program for judges, who are now given special assistance in purchasing and carrying guns for personal protection by the Supreme Court. He carries a Glock 26.

 

Justice Renato Corona is likewise known as a gun enthusiast. Story has it that he carries an M16 in his vehicle and always goes armed. He was the author of the Pro-gun decision of IGMIDIO MADRIGAL VS. PEOPLE OF THE PHILIPPINES, which is cited in the legal forum of this site.
