MASBATE CITY—Police here have arrested two persons who violated the ban on the bearing, carrying, or transporting of firearms and other deadly weapons.

In the report obtained by BICOL STANDARD, account manager German Cos y Gerona and collector Marvin Abas y Eras were discovered in possession of a calibre 9mm Tauruz pistol, a steel magazine loaded with eleven pieces of live ammunition for same caliber, and a bladed weapon measuring more or less eleven inches.

Said suspects were apprehended while they were drinking inside a KTV bar at around 1:30 a.m. at Barangay Bapor, this city, on January 10, the official start of the gun ban.

January 10 is also the beginning of the election period.

COMELEC Resolution No. 10015 states that according to Section 32 of Republic Act No. 7166, "During the election period, no person shall bear, carry or transport firearms or other deadly weapons in public places, including any building, street, park, private vehicle or public conveyance, even if licensed to possess or carry the same, unless authorized in writing by the Commission. The issuance of firearms license shall be suspended during the election period.

"Only regular members of the Philippine National Police, the Armed Forces of the Philippines and other law enforcement agencies of the Government who are duly deputized in writing by the Commission for election duty may be authorized to carry and possess firearms during the election period: Provided, That, when in the possession of firearms, the deputized law enforcement officer must be: (a) in full uniform showing clearly and legibly his name, rank and serial number, which shall remain visible at all times, and (b) in the actual performance of his election duty in the specific area designated by the Commission." the law continues.

Charges will be pressed against the two suspects, the Masbate police said.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
