    New gun amnesty to include high-powered rifles


    By Gil C. Cabacungan Jr.

    Last updated 08:20pm (Mla time) 12/13/2006


    PRESIDENT Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has ordered a new amnesty program to allow owners of unlicensed firearms to surrender their weapons.

    The President signed on Wednesday Executive Order No. 585 providing for the surrender and licensing of loose firearms over the next 12 months.

    The government has set a P3,000 amnesty fee for high-powered firearms and P2,000 for low-powered firearms.

    While the government as a general rule does not license high-powered firearms, the new EO allows the chief of the Philippine National Police to grant exemptions and give permits to qualified owners of high-powered guns.

    Arroyo noted that her initial amnesty program for loose firearms three years ago covered a very “limited period'' that was not enough for all illegal firearm owners to apply for licenses.

    In the EO, the President ordered the maximization of the firearm ballistic data bank to establish a comprehensive information on gun owners.

    The EO has allocated 20 percent of the collected fees to the Firearms and Explosives Division, regional and city offices of the PNP with the balance to go to improving the Firearms Information Management System, Firearms Records Management System and Firearms Ballistic Information System.

    Police blame the large number of loose firearms for the rising crime in the country, including the unsolved, extrajudicial killings of activists and journalists

    if it was signed already, malamang next month na yan since election year, so the FED and the government will need funds to compensate for the loss revenue from the gun ban.

    While she is at it, PGMA should stop gun bans.

    Sige payag ako sa charter change, basta wala pa ring galawan ng terms nila, bawal pa rin ang 100% foreign ownership ng lupa, at magkaron na tayo ng RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS. Sige naaaa.

    Tsaka bawal gumamit ng tren......wink wink...

    kung ang firearm ay gov property o nabili lang sa isang pulis o sundalo (na nagbenta ng fa dahil sa matinding pangangailangan), sakop pa rin ba ito ng amnesty?

    Hello maomanila...I'm maskytrading, a newbie in this forum...If you look at Executive Order no. 194 signed by Pres. Erap in 2000...the answer is YES!!! Please read below
    -------------------------------------------------------
    Section 2. Henceforth, all citizens of the Philippines may possess firearms of any type and/or caliber; Provided that such firearms are not classified as crew-served weapons (CSWs), light anti-tank weapons (LAWs), light machine guns (LMGs), anti-tank and anti-personnel recoilless rifles, bazookas, etc.; Provided further that such firearms are test-fired for ballistics, stenciled and properly licensed.
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    This E.O. is still in effect, meaning it has not been repealed nor elapsed like E.O. 171 which expired after its prescribed period of 1 year plus the extension(pls. see main page of Filipino Firearms Forum)...And not only can you have the AKs at Twin Pines but also the AK2000s at WSC!!! If a civilian applicant does not have any of the disqualifications in FA licensing requisites, it is very possible that CPNP will approve your purchase and license. Why not try...I tried
