Evangelium Vitae - The Stand of the Catholic Church on Self-Defense

Atty. Nandy Pacheco, self-proclaimed religious man and head of the gun control advocacy group, gunless society, frequently cites the “thou shall not kill” commandment as the basis for his anti-gun agenda arguments. He will have people believe that said commandment is absolute and that the taking of human life, under any circumstance, cannot be justified, specially in the eyes of God. What Nandy Pacheco fails to mention is that the Vatican already clarified this issue through the Evangelium Vitae issued by Pope John Paul II (Latin for "The Gospel of Life", it is the name of the encyclical written by Pope John Paul II which expresses the position of the Catholic Church regarding the value and inviolability of human life. The Pope issued the encyclical on March 25, 1995).

Progun walks out of PNP Gun Summit 2010, Disavows "Total Progun" Club of Perry Punla

A walkout by PROGUN marred today the PNP Gun Summit 2010. Initially, PROGUN was not given a slot as speaker in the "insights" portion of the Summit wherein our Opposing party, the Gunless Society was allowed to give a lengthy speech through Nandy Pacheco. Instead, the PNP assigned Mr. Christopher "Pery" Punla to speak as leader of an organization called, "Total Pro-Gun Confederation". This organization has not even been organized yet and Mr. Punla re-appeared on the gun scene only a week ago stating that he was organizing GENCOP.

Mon Tulfo Speaks out Against the Gun Ban

Responsible gun owners blameless

MANILA, Philippines—The Philippine National Police (PNP) is proposing a permanent total gun ban because, it says, there was a dramatic decrease of firearm-related crimes during the election period as a result of the ban.

The PNP is mistaking the trees for the forest.

It’s not the gun ban, but the sight of uniformed cops and soldiers in many parts of the country that deterred crime.

Criminal minds, whose guns are unlicensed, couldn’t bring their guns for fear of being caught in police-military checkpoints and by uniformed cops and soldiers who are present in practically every corner.

And you know why there are many uniformed cops and soldiers? They are not patrolling the streets but guarding politicians and VIPs!

UK: Gun-free zone and unarmed victim zone - 12 killed in mass shooting

The UK was rocked by a rare multiple shooting incident on Wednesday. At least 12 people were killed and 25 injured when taxi driver Derrick Bird opened fire in a shooting rampage in Boot, West Cumbria. For around six hours, Police were unable to apprehend him as he was loose in the area. Bird was later found to have committed suicide in a nearby forest.

A perspective from Cambodia and Vietnam

Karlon Rama, who writes for Sun Star was recently in Vietnam and Cambodia. From there he gives us a perspective of other Southeast Asian countries that have enforced a gun ban. Can we expect the Philippines to be much different?

"Unarmed. Cambodia, which I had just left days ago, and Vietnam, where I am currently, are two Southeast Asian countries where private firearm ownership is restricted.

Only policemen and soldiers have guns. It is a badge of power.

They carry it proudly as they enter bars and help themselves to a bottle of Anchor, Heineken or Halida.

The ordinary resident can do nothing.

Not surprisingly, stories of human rights abuses here are commonplace. This is the utopia people like Jesus Versoza want to bring about.

And yet, on a more mundane level, there is also the existence of crime--the absence of private firearm ownership notwithstanding.

PROGUN CHAIRMAN RESIGNS!

In a message posted in his Facebook account, PROGUN CHAIRMAN MIKE MELCHOR announced his resignation from our organization which with heavy hearts that our President, Atty. JJ D. Mendoza and Secretary-General Atty. Ticky Tabujara have accepted as of today, June 2, 2010. The decision to sever his ties with the organization is very untimely since we are in the middle of preparations for the Gun Summit that will be held on Friday, June 4, 2010. Regarding his allegations that the organization did not serve the interest of the gunowners of this country, its not for us to brag about it. PROGUN exists to protect the interests of the gunowners and its up to them to judge us, including our FORMER CHAIRMAN MIKE MELCHOR. We wish him good luck in his future endeavors and he will be missed dearly by PROGUN officers.
