Guns Banned In Phillipines Ahead Of May Elections, Criminals Didn’t Receive The Memo

Still less violence than in the Liberal Mecca of Chicago

(GMA News) A man running for councilor in the upcoming elections in May was shot dead by motorcycle-riding gunmen Sunday evening in San Fernando City in La Union.

Danilo Nisperos Sr., 59, died while receiving medical treatment at Bethany Hospital in San Fernando City, said Ilocos regional police spokesperson Superintendent Jovencio Badua on Monday.

The police recovered five spent shells and five slugs of a still unknown type of firearm from the scene of the crime.

Nisperos was killed despite the implementation of the nationwide gun ban in connection with the May elections.

The day before another political candidate was killed.

As of February 22, the Philippine National Police (PNP) has arrested 1,138 gun ban violators: 1,034 civilians, six soldiers, 13 policemen, a member of the Bureau of Fire Protection, 14 government officials, 62 security guards, and two Citizens Armed Forces Geographical Unit members.

Still, some armed groups managed to slip through the gun ban. On January 26, armed men fired shots during a robbery at SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City, causing panic among mall goers.

And there were other shootings by criminals, who don’t seem particularly interested in following the ban. Weird, eh?

Under the gun ban, which is being enforced since January 13, all permits to carry firearms are suspended. Only uniformed law enforcers are exempted.

Remember, this is just a temporary suspension of the ability to carry. Here in America Democrats want to not only eliminate the ability to carry (they do this by continuously expending where people can’t carry) but to dink and dunk their way towards eliminating most privately owned guns, leaving only The Government with guns.

Meanwhile, a liberal astroturf group, Progressive USA Voters, is offering to pay people $9-$11 an hour to agitate for more gun control.

Israel also has strict controls. Cannot have those 25% Arab population armed. And just look at all those bank robbery laws, they don’t seem to work either. Shouldn’t we just get rid of all the laws that people don’t obey?

And why bother to have laws against immigration when people just ignore them like criminals do with guns??

Of course john thinks that enforcement of laws and just writing laws is the same thing.

Why do you hate police and other LEO’s, john?

What an assinine response.

That fool just likes to be argumentative. Not for any rational reason. Just to get attention.

If its attention he wants, its attention he will get.

Our favorite troll has once again fallen upon reason. Why create laws to control gun ownership by legal citizens when illegal ownership abounds. THerefore why bother. Right? So, go out and tell your socialist america hating buddies that there’s no reason to create gun-control laws.

No matter how many laws politicians make, criminals will not follow them. It’s really that simple. The article simply proves that point.

Chicago also proves that point, of course, now certain politicians are pointing to the influx of criminals from neighboring states. Uh…right.

If gun control laws have virtually no effect on criminals, then the good question to ask is why does Congress want to create MORE of them when enforcement of current laws is hit or miss?

Since Holder took over the DOJ, there has been 40% LESS prosecution of gun-related cases dealing with alleged criminals.

It appears that our government will not be happy until they can ban all guns. Of course, they actually believe that when they do, criminals will also wisely turn in their guns as well.

Who believes this stuff? Only those on the Left. No one else is that stupid.

I frequently travel to the Philippines. It is like Mexico in that, while the average citizen has zero gun rights, shooting deaths are common.

There is a PROGun (Peaceful Responsible Owners of Guns) movement in the Philippines, but I don’t know that it’s getting any traction.

It’s not stupidity. It’s called “thinning the herd”.

That makes perfect sense to me. 1) knowing our resident troll as I do, john is incapable of distinguishing reality from written fiction. 2) as most liberals, john seems to believe that having words on paper is more of a deterrent to criminal activity than an armed populace.

How can that be, gumball?

You are an irrational female, aren’t you?
