    "Bunye: Gun ban law will be strictly enforced"

    Malacañang today said the ban on the carrying of firearms outside one’s residence would be strictly enforced to curb the rising incidence of criminality and violence against journalists.

    "One of the contributing factors to violence (and the killings of journalists) is the indiscriminate carrying of firearms outside one’s residence," Press Secretary Ignacio R. Bunye said in a radio interview this morning.

    What should be done to curb the rising tide of violence is to "strictly enforce existing laws and regulations" on the carrying of weapons outside one’s residence, he added.

    Bunye explained, however, that on a case-to-case basis journalists under a "credible" threat of being attacked may be allowed to carry firearms outside their homes for their protection.

    Reacting to the proposed arming of journalists in the wake of the slayings of media practitioners, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo said that this could be done on a case-by-case basis.

    This means, Bunye said, that "if the threat to the life of a journalist is definite and very credible, then he or she should tell the authorities and the authorities would then decide whether or not to allow him or her to be armed."
