PIA Press Release

Gun holders warned

By Rose B. Palacio

Davao City (30 December) -- Davao City Mayor Rodrigo R. Duterte warned firearm holders, whether civilians or men in uniforms, against firing their guns on New Year's eve.

Philippine National Police Regional Director P/Chief Superintendent Ricardo C. Quinto issued the same warning not only to members of the PNOP but also to civilians with permits to carry firearms.

"If we say nobody should fire their firearms, this goes to everybody in government or otherwise," the Mayor said.

Mayor Duterte said people always have in mind policemen as gun holders, forgetting that the civilians are also issued permits to carry guns.

"It would be unfortunate for those caught violating the law because they will be charged accordingly in court and their licenses cancelled," Mayor Duterte said,

The Mayor likewise reminded Davaoenos of the total ban on the use of firecrackers or pyrotechnics in the city. (PIA) [top]
