    By E. T. SUAREZ

    The prohibition on the carrying of firearms and other deadly weapons outside residence or place of business in connection with the Oct. 29 barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections will start on Friday, Sept. 14, and ends Tuesday, Nov. 13.

    The Commission on Elections (Comelec), led by Chairman Benjamin S. Abalos Sr., said that for purposes of this year’s gun ban, firearms include airgun, side arms, long firearms, hand grenades or other explosives, except pyrotechnics, while deadly weapons include bladed instruments.

    Abalos said the prohibition on the carrying of firearms outside residence or place of business include public buildings, streets, parks, and private vehicles or public conveyances.

    He stressed that during the effectivity of the gun ban, the issuance of firearms licenses is suspended and it is the Comelec that shall supervise and regulate the bearing, possession, use, and transport of firearms and other deadly weapons in furtherance of its constitutionally mandated obligation to ensure the holding of a clean, honest, orderly, peaceful, and credible elections next month.

    The Comelec added that from Sept. 14-Nov. 13, any permit to carry firearms outside residence or outside place of business, mission order, and memorandum receipts issued by the PNP chief or his duly authorized representative prior to, or processed and issued during the election period, are suspended unless covered by the certificates of examption or permits duly issued by the poll body.

    Meanwhile, the Comelec has ruled that none of the village officials shall be considered resigned upon filing their certificates of candidacy for the Oct. 29 barangay and SK elections.

    The Comelec stressed, however, that appointive barangay, city and municipal, provincial, regional, or national officials or employees, or those in the civil or military service, including those in government-owned or -controlled corporations, shall be considered automatically resigned upon the filing of a certificate of candidacy for a barangay or SK office.

    Among the appointed barangay and SK officials include the secretary, treasurer, and kagawad.

    In every barangay, the elected barangay officials are the punong barangay and sangguniang barangay kagawads, while the SK elective officials are the SK chairman and seven kagawads. They are all elected at large by barangay and SK voters.

    The certificates of candidacy are to be filed in triplicate with the office of the election officer of the city or municipality concerned.

    But in cities or municipalities where there are two or more election officers, the certificate of candidacy should be filed with the office of the election officer having jurisdiction over the barangay where he is a candidate.

    Its confirmed, the gun ban starts this September 14, 2007 and ends November 13, 2007.

    It was originally scheduled to start September 29 which is 30 day before election day. COMELEC however realized that certain prohibited acts, including the gun ban, are supposed to be imposed 45 days before and not 30 days before election day. Hence, in an en banc session yesterday the Commission advanced the start of the gun ban to September 14, 2007.:sad:

    how come the issuance of firearm license is also suspended?:sad: so suspended yung order ko na shotgun.

    BUT as far as i can remember, a lot of people bought FA during the last campaign period and senate elections, including me, and granted man issuance ng license and we were given comelec gun ban exemption for a few days.
