INDISCRIMINATE FIRING: Police exec tags frustrated gun owners as most likely culprits

By: Edison Delos Angeles December 27,2016 - 02:40 PM

There is a big chance that they are frustrated gun owners, who possess unlicensed guns.

Supt. Arnel Banzon, Regional Operations and Plans Division (R3) deputy chief, gave this description of the people who would most likely fire their guns during celebrations or the holidays.

“These are the people who cannot go to firing ranges maybe because their guns are not legit, and they are just making the New Year celebration as a reason to fire their guns. That is wrong in all aspects,” Banzon said.

He said that legitimate gun owners could always go to shooting ranges should they want to fire their guns, and the uniformed men would always have their chance to fire their firearms during routine firing practice.

He also assured that police officers were well aware of consequences of defying the direct orders of Philippine National Police Director, General Ronald “Bato”dela Rosa, not to fire their guns in the revelry of the New Year.

“With the stakes at hand if they fire their guns, I don’t think the uniformed men are crazy enough to fire indiscriminately,” Banzon said.
