Binay joins calls for stricter gun laws

MANILA, Philippines – Vice President Jejomar Binay has joined calls for a stricter enforcement of gun laws in the wake of the death of 7-year-old Stephanie Nicole Ella.

“The law must be enforced to the letter. We have enough laws to penalize but the problem has always been in the enforcement of the laws, especially those on loose firearms. That is the challenge for the PNP (Philippine National Police) and other law enforcement agencies,” Binay said in a statement on Thursday.

The PNP, he said, should exert all efforts to bring those responsible to justice.

“This incident should not be allowed to become just another statistic,” Binay said, echoing President Benigno Aquino III’s sentiment that Ella’s death was senseless.

Ella died Wednesday, two days after she was hit by a stray bullet in the head.

Initial investigations showed that the incident happened while she was watching fireworks display outside her home in Caloocan during the New Year’s Eve celebrations.

    hehe give up your own guns first darkie, I’m arming myself to the teeth until the NPA are disbanded and that stupid Lina Law is repealed. Until squatters and the lying thieves among them are cleared, they risk running into 12 guage shells and .44 caliber bullets

    Maaaring ang nagpaputok ng baril at nakapatay sa bata ay walang sapat na kaalaman tungkol sa  panganib ng pagpapaputok ng baril. Marahil kung alam niya ang panganib ay hindi nangyari ang sakuna. Palawakin ang kaalaman tungkol sa panganib ng pagpapaputok ng baril. Isama ito sa itinuturo sa eskuwelahan simula sa elementarya hanggang kolehiyo.

    Bakit bigla kang dumistansya kay Gwen ha Binay itim-itim. Na realize mo ng blunder mo ano? Well, sorry to tell you but what’s done is done. Yung pakiki-alam mo kay Gwen ay mahigit kalahati ng Cebu ang nawala sa iyo at ang iba ay nakita na ang tunay na kulay mo. Ikaw pala ay talagang maitim to the core. Nasira sa iyo ang kasabihan na “beauty is skin deep”. Sa iyo, ugliness to the core. You are a book that can be judge by its cover.

    Pati management style mo maitim. Your wanton disregard of a lawful order showed the kind of leadership you have.

    MGA KABABAYAN, HUWAG BOBOTO NG UNA KUNG GUSTO NYO PANG TUMINO ANG PALAKAD NG GOBYERNO. ANG BOTO SA UNA AY BOTO KAY BINAY.

    What is needed to be done is to curb all loose firearms not just those who are lawfully registered. You can have so many restriction on guns but until you can clear the streets of loose firearms this laws would still be useless

  • buttones

    Why only now Binay? This call for stricter gun control? You have been in politics for more years than I care to remember and not once, in all that time this issue was ever raised by you- never, it never interested you – why now? Because the poor kid was seven years old? Is that the reason? You have watched, during your career, this country overtake even the USA by nearly three times the murder rate per 100.000 by guns and never said a word – Why now?

    • billy gunner

       bakit mo ba pinagiinitan si binay? cguro natanggal ka sa makati city hall ano?

      • buttones

        Very funny I’m sure, I’m just wondering why this issue in all these year has now been raised by Binay- Makati City Hall? I have always set my sights a lot higher than that,— I have nothing against Binay, don’t even know the guy, have little interest, it was just the question of him ignoring this gun control problem year on year , him having held such illustrious posts in his career, and the catalyst that brought all this together was the death of a poor child… it’s certainly vote worthy, this concern, is it not?

      • buttones

        Sorry, forgot to remind you of the wonderful legacy of Binay- “ Makati ranks 3rd in Asia’s top 10 most promiscuous cities” Not bad eh?

  • Your_King

    No such luck Mr. VP…Aquino and his KKK love their guns. If there is some law passed the Aquino KKK will be exempt for following any such laws.

  • disqusted0fu

    Law enforcement has been a problem these days because majority are following the leader, they are just noynoying. Plus, the creation of the kkk (kaklase, kaibigan, kabarilan) makes it even harder for authorities to enforce the gun laws, especially for the members of the kkk.

  • Julius_Caesar1

    Mr. veep just wants another futile media exposure. Anything to get him a quick snap in the press he will take advantage of. A big boo!
