    I smell another gun license amnesty that could last a long time and minimal fines for expired licenses just to get the expired licenses active once again.

    I hope this summit would simplify gun licensing such that the person is the one licensed to own guns and the guns are registered in his name.

    There is a pending amnesty by end of the year.

    I don't think that system would be passed - they will earn less :wow:

    It is apparently not open to the general public.

    I've been to many conferences, symposia and "summits",
    albeit wrt environmental issues, and believe me, the key
    issues are decided long before the show starts; long before
    they allow an airing out of opposing views.

    A whole bunch of us will have to win seats in the legislature
    and the administrative branch, to see any progress.
    True story.

    This coming summit is going to be a tough one. I have friends in ProGun who told me that IANSA (http://www.iansa.org/) will be represented in the summit and they are pushing that the Phil govt. sign UN resolutions to control small arms. If that happens not only will we be facing a gun ban but possible confiscation of privately owned guns as well. (Like they did in England, Australia, etc.)

    There is something fishy about this summit because orgs like the PPSA, PNSA, AFAD, and ProGun were not invited. Only the Airsoft Alliance (of all people!) were invited, and it was through them that ProGun found out. Both groups will be sending representatives to the summit and as they said, "madugong bakbakan ito.."

    I will keep you posted on the developments.

    Let them implement this first with the Abu Sayyaf, MILF and MNLF. Likewise, the clan warlords and private armies of the politicos...

    They won't. They'll target the easiest prey - the law-abiding gun owner.

    No, it's a good thing.
    Think about what this big, big production is all about; why it is being
    staged at all, and for whom.

    Everything we've ever said about the problems in Philippine firearms law,
    still holds true today. The same interests that prefer the senseless status
    quo are still making the decisions.

    The only danger here is that some guys from ProGun, PPSA or AFAD
    will try to use the event to loudly make pogi points among their so
    called "constituents" ... after which all gun owners take a real hit,
    instead of a merely cosmetic one.

    -=-=-=-

    Allow me to explicate.

    There are two possible reasons to be setting up this show.

    1. To seriously lay the groundwork for abolition of our firearm-owning freedoms.
    2. To make it appear they are laying the groundwork for abolition of said freedoms.

    The first is belied by everything we know about firearms ownership in this country,
    particularly the revenue stream it represents for government. It is also belied by
    the logistical impossibility of enforcing a gun-free Philippines. The possibility remains
    that a middle ground is their objective: significant reduction rather than abolition
    of our freedoms, for which they can sell very expensive case-to-case exemptions,
    but hey, they can do this already, at will, without the need for a circus.

    The second is supported by the fact that IANSA is the "guest of honor". Lahat
    ng puedeng bumatikos sa pakikialam ng IANSA, na hecha-fuera na sa event,
    'di ba? My take is that at the end of this big to-do... the summit will present GMA
    with a set of anti-gun proposals that IANSA can show off to its donors as a
    major accomplishment (to justify even more donor solicitation), whether or not
    GMA ever signs the anti-gun crap into law --and there's plenty of reason for her
    not to.

    As I said in my first post... everything's decided long before the curtains go up.
    Arreglado na ang lahat... "scripted", ika nga.

    It's important for us to make some noise, to let the government know
    we're paying attention as much as we've been paying license fees, but there's
    a fine line between making your presence felt, and making a fool of yourself.
