Chief, a challenge has been sent to you!!!



Ticky, some one has claimed that you were issued a challenge to debate on gun control. Invites over the FB were sent your way. And the challenger claims that you kept quiet and did not respond to it. He now claims "victory" even proclaiming that you balk!!!


This is what I refer to. See this attached url:

One proposal PROGUN should support: compulsory third party liability policy

Here is one proposal that I think PROGUN should support. Unlike the IWB ban, 'one long, one short' and one PTCFOR, I think a compulsory third party liability policy for gun owners will actually help to make people safer. If gun owners must take out a policy where the premium will increase in the event of an accidental discharge that causes injury or death, they will have real incentive be more careful. It will foster responsible ownership by making sure unsafe owners literally pay for their mistakes.

What do you think?

Only individuals with permits allowed to carry guns outside residence, police chief says

DAVAO CITY, July 1 (PNA) -- Sr. Supt. Rene Aspera, director of the Davao City Police Office (DCPO), said that only individuals with corresponding permits to carry firearms can bring handguns outside the residence with the lifting of the gun ban after the election period.

Aspera said the policy covers even members of the police and military who are off-duty.

He said based on the memorandum order issued by Police Director General Jesus Versoza, all police officers wearing civilian attire are no longer allowed to bring their issued firearms.

The Philippine National Police will allow one Permit-to-Carry Firearm Outside of Residence for every licensed gun holder provided they submit nine requirements, said PNP spokesman Chief Supt. Leonardo A. Espina.

Espina said PNP chief Director General Jesus A. Verzosa decided to issue one PTCFOR for a handgun.

“Those in possession of automatic rifles and machine pistols will not be given a PTCFOR,” he said.
