It's a good idea, sometimes. A lot of policemen don't know how to shoot their M16s and M14s. However, arming a policeman who is assigned in rural areas and in Mindanao with a shotgun is a bad idea. A lot of policemen are against this, according to the news article. I hope the PNP would not try to mess around with the high-power licenses of civilians who diligently renew their licenses on time: http://www.visayandailystar.com/2008/March/27/topstory5.htm Wanna kill these ads?
