PNP scores hard-headed Pinoy gun owners

The Philippine National Police (PNP) scolded gun owners Tuesday for insisting on bringing out their firearms despite an ongoing election gun ban. PNP spokesman Chief Superintendent Leonardo Espina said at least 71 people and some of them law enforcers had already been arrested for violating the gun ban, which took effect Sunday.

The Commission on Elections (Comelec)’s Resolution 1814 bans candidates and private individuals from carrying firearms and hiring bodyguards during the election period which runs from January 10 to June 9, 2010.
