MANILA, Philippines— Senate Majority Leader  Vicente “Tito” Sotto III, who described  himself as a “favorite whipping  boy” of some people,  wants members  of the Senate  to  be  included in the list of those who should be allowed to possess and carry licensed  firearms.

Sotto made the proposal  during a Senate hearing  on  Thursday  on Senate Bill 2993, which seeks a comprehensive law on firearms, light weapons  and ammunitions, filed by Senator Panfilo Lacson.

Under the bill, the following professionals whose lives are considered  in imminent danger due to the nature of their   profession, occupation or business are allowed to   carry firearms outside their residences:

  • members of the Philippine  bars
  • certified public accountants
  • accredited media practitioner
  • cashiers
  •  bank tellers
  • Priests
  • Ministers
  • Rabbi
  • Imam
  • Physicians
  • Nurses
  • engineers
  • businessmen.

“To the Senate bill proposed by Lacson, we might as well  include the senators because in my case I’m not only the favorite whipping   boy of some social media practitioners  but also the favorite whipping   boy of the illegal drugs  organizations since time immemorial but I don’t have a single bodyguard,” Sotto said.

“I’d rather believe in my self-defense and that’s the reason that I carry a firearm…Hindi ho ako nagba-body guard e. I don’t want the Filipino people paying for my bodyguard…,” he added.

It was lawyer Ferdinand Parayno, secretary general  of the National Prosecutor League of the Philippines, who first  suggested  during the same  hearing, that senators, along  with prosecutors,  judges and qualified officials and employees should also be included in the  proposed legislation.“

“I want to be realistic your honor. It is the fact that the number of  policemen nationwide is not enough  to protect our citizenry nationwide. Marami pong mga priority ang mga [pulis]. Kung kami po lahat mga prosecutors, we are more than 2000 nationwide, magre-request ng protection sa PNP (The police have their priorities. If all prosecutors would request protection from the Philippine National Police) how would they be able to perform their other duties?” Parayno asked.

“I think it will be more prudent for the government to allow qualified government officials, judges prosecutors, senators to be allowed to own, possess and to carry their firearms so they could protect themselves in  the event of any attack. That is a realistic approach to the problem,” he said .

Parayno’s  group  and several other groups, including the  Gunless Society of the Philippines present in the hearing , favored stiffer  gun control law but not a total gun ban.

“The Prosecutors League of the Philippines is for stricter gun control. By that,  we mean that there should be  strict monitoring of gun ownership and possession.  We are not for total gun ban,” Parayno said.

“The Gunless Society and Kapatiran Party of which I’m a secretary general is not for a total gun ban but simply stricter  gun control,’  said Norman Cabrera, secretary general of the Gunlesss Society.

“The possession in public places of  firearms and deadly weapons should be authorized only for those directly and primarily engaged in police, military or security services and even then,  only to enforce the law under a strict and clearly defined guidelines. The act does not in any way impair the privilege  of responsible and qualified citizens to keep licensed firearms at home or at sports clubs,” Cabrera added.

Arsenio “Boy” Evangelista, whose son was killed by the notorious Dominguez carjacking  group, also opposed a total gun ban.

“Our stand here is no to total gun ban simply because our lives are in danger,”  said Evangelista, who  represents the Volunteers  Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) during the  hearing.

“We strongly believe that 95 percent involving shooting incidents, crimes against person (happen) outside of our residents. Why deny us  of bringing guns outside our residences? We are a dead-man walking here. Soft target po kami (We become soft targets),”  he said.

Citing data of the PNP’s firearms and  explosives division,  Ernesto Tabujara of the Peaceful Responsible Owners of Guns said that only less than one percent of all crimes committed in the country were committed by licensed firearms while 99.9 percent were allegedly committed  by criminal elements.

Jethro Tan Dionisio, president of the Association of Firearms and Ammunition Dealers of the Philippines, said they are also for stiffer penalties, and  not  for a total gun ban.

“We are in favor of passing  the  law for stiffer penalties. The problem  lies in the proliferation of the illegal guns and the responsible gun owners should not be the ones  who are penalized for this,” Dionisio said.

  • ed_nique

    why prioritize senators over congressmen?

    if we seriously study between the two as to who needs protection more, i would say it is the congressmen.

    a congressman’s constituency is specific, the rivalry more intense. the chances of an attack from a rival is more possible. have we heard of anyone ordering a hit on a senator because of political rivalry?

    i’m not justifying that they be given the right to arm thenselves, it’s just that i find senator’s sotto logic flawed and self-serving.

    • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

      Well, to argue naman against your point.

      Some senators (well, one,or two) received the ire of the entire country, and so, if ever a mob out there will extract blood, it will be Sen Sotto MORE than any other congressman out there.

      Simply, Your congressman can earn the ire of his constituency. Sen Sotto has earned the ire of the entire nation.

      And so, when we come as a mob with tar and feathers, its only a fitting that he be well armed to protect himself.

      • marionics

        so then he deserves the aforesaid ire and should just accept the upcoming violence from his constituency he he

      • ed_nique

        that’s why i said that his reason was self-serving.

  • marionics

    wala talagang media savy itong si sotto. kung kelan mainit ang mga baril saka maglalabas ng mga ganitong statement he he. i’m not against senators having armed security siyempre pero kabobohan naman na ipapamalita mo pa ito he he

    • Jane Tan

      If a gun-ban (total or partial) will be implemented, I’m totally against politicians having armed security. Its the same thing. Who do you think performs political killings if not for their armed personnel? That’s a huge loophole.

      • marionics

        i know what you mean. but i personally have people close to me whose lives are truly at risk who have no choice but to have armed security with them kasi nga talaga may real threat on their lives. if there were any other way to insure their security then i would be all for it

    • diamond_digger

  • mad_as_Hamlet

    The nature of the “threats” made against a public official should determine where, when, and what kind of firearm he should be allowed to carry.

    In the case of Mr. Sen. Sotto, it is clear that he can have a firearm but only in cyberspace and only when he is online.  And definitely it should not be a branded and original one.  Only a Paltik like Smith and Whistle, or a Glocko, or a Parakopya.

    • 12JEM

  • Hunter421

    Whats the point of the election gun ban if all the politicians and their security can still carry firearms? Politicians aren’t the only people who deserve the protection that comes with carrying a firearm.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZWTTKJTI57YO7TZBJC66GA2OLU dennis

    Wait! Mukha atang lumalaki na ang scope ng mga taong pwedeng magdala ng baril? Almost all professionals na ah! When do you say a person is a “Professional”? Practicing his Profession? Non-practitioners? Jobless professionals? Aba eh halos lahat na ah!
    Are GUNS the only source of defense lang ba na pwedeng dalhin ng isang normal citizen? For all Professionals? Pwede naman ang PEPPER SPRAYS;ELECTRIC SHOCK WEAPONS OR TASERS kung gusto nyo for defense purposes and self protection at hindi agad sa conclusion na FIREARMS? Hindi naman lahat ng tao eh GUSTONG MAKAMATAY! Eh i-allow nyo na din ang BULLET PROOF!

    Dapat nag-iisip kayo ng batas or solution eh? YOU ARE ALL PAID FOR THAT! My Goodness! YOU ARE JUST INVITING OUR PRESIDENT TO DECLARE MARTIAL LAW!!! Paano kung before election sa May,2013 eh magkaroon ng Martial Law?

    It’s a sad state of affairs when priests, nurses and engineers are considered in “imminent danger” because of their careers! What gives with this list? How the heck did nurses get on there? And if nurses, why not doctors, especially the ones who are “consulted” without your permission while you’re stuck in a hospital bed, poke you once and bill you P1,000? If I was to run amok in a hospital, they’d be the first ones I’d track down!

    Another self-serving bill being promoted by Mr. Eskalera. Yes, other people are being targetted as the beneficiary of this bill but if he is really sincere that the proposed law would help these professionals, the last thing that should come into his mind as an example is himself. Lumalabas ang pagiging self-centered mo, sotto! Palagi mo na lang nirerelate ang sarili mo sa trabaho mo. Unahin mo muna ang bayan bago ang sarili.

    Senators have millions of pork barrel to hire bodyguards,if there is a death threat They can request the PNP for security.Allowing them to carry firearms would give a wrong signal to the public.Senators should instead create laws that would control the proliferations of firearms and some security measures that will improve the peace and order in our country.Baka po pag nagtalo talo kau sa senado e kayo kayo din ang magbarilan.

  • joshmale2004

    I am okay for Senators to be allowed to carry guns but only during their tenure as Senators. Once their term expires, the permit to carry should be revoked. However, I am alarmed of Sen Sotto reason to want to carry a firearm because as he said, he is the whipping boy of some people. This reasoning seems to project that he want a firearm not for protection while on duty but so he can use it in retaliation being a whipping boy. Wrong purpose Tito Sen and you will be starting a precedent for the common citizen to justify carrying a hand gun because he is being bullied by other people.

This proposal is obviously a copy cat of the U.S. National Rifle Association’s response to the recent mass murders in a Connecticut school, where the NRA, to the shock and consternation of the American public, brazenly proposed that teachers arm themselves in order to counter mass murderers.

    True to form, Tito Sotto lifted a page out of the NRA handbook.

    Priests, ministers, rabbis & imams are men of the cloth who preach God/Yahweh/Allah’s Word.  Nurses & doctors cure the sick.  Engineers build.  Who would want to kill these people for doing their jobs? Allowing them to carry firearms because of their profession only makes sense if they are in a war zone.

    ang dapat na pagtuunan dito ay mahigpit at matinding batas sa mga illegal na armas at di dapat higpitan yung mga taong sumusunod sa mga patakaran to possess firearms. hindi porke pulis ka ay pwede kang magdala ng service firearms mo. once the official duty of any law enforcers for that matter ay tapos na, he must surrender or iwan ang kanyang fireams sa designated place ng kanilang opisina. kung gusto ng mga law enforcers na magdala ng armas, bumili sila ng kanilang sariling armas, mag-apply, sundin ang proceso in owning a firearm. nobody should be exempted from these processess.these should apply to all irrespective of your status in life. i think nobody should be denied his right to protect himself, his family and his properties in any manner he deemed right as long as it is within the context of the prevailing law.

    Before imposing strict gun ownership and to carry gun(s) outside the homes for self protection the government should be sure & confident to completely eradicate and get rid of illegal prohibitive drugs thus prevent drug craze addict roaming the street or elsewhere to the minimum if not totally get rid of, for these ‘drug addicts’  are the root cause of death of innocent people killed indiscriminately, nevermind the criminals i.e. holdupers, carnappers,  kidnappers, robbers, serial killers, etc., they deserve to die by all means practicable!

  • w4d

    These senators’ lives are not and were never in any danger. Sotto is only grandstanding as usual, showing to all that he is a Philippine Senator. The senators that came closes to danger while serving in office are Honasan and Lacson during their “hide-and-seek” games, which were self-made. The nation knows that a simple barangay captain owns a gun, and we know that senators have private armies…LOL…

  • blainz

    The idiocy simply never ends with this senator.

    Sotto seeks to defend himself with a gun, when he laments being attacked by “cyberbullies”… exactly how does that work? He’s going to shoot his computer?!?

    Nurses with guns? Engineers? CPAs? How in heck are these people’s lives in imminent danger?
    Priests, imams, rabbis, and ministers to be packing too? Oh fantastic, wouldn’t we all just love hearing God’s word amplified by holstered pistols.

    In case Sotto is missing Mikey Arroyo’s stint in Congress; should the police not be enough, there are already people that can be tasked to protect all those above, along with cashiers, tellers, and businessmen. They are called SECURITY GUARDS.

    If the problem is there are not enough policemen, the solution is to hire more policemen, not encourage everyone to have guns. Superficial reasoning like Sotto’s will only magnify the numbers of gun-related violence, which, following him, will then lead to an even greater clamor for guns…. it’s a cascade of stupidity.

    I could only wish it were possible to pistol-whip this whipping boy’s IQ into triple digits. Hundreds of millions in pork-barrel, millions more in MOOEs, all to pay for the mental torture of witnessing his utter witlessness. Sotto, just resign already and confine your comedy to Eat Bulaga.

    Guns never solve problems, it only ends arguments in death. Making guns available to the citizenry only reinforced the perception that we are not secure in our own homes. It also gives the impression that we can only secure our lives and properties if we have guns ourselves. Effectively saying that there is no need for PNP and other government agencies task in securing the civilian population as guns alone will secure us from harm. If each and everyone in the neighborhood have guns, what diff entitle us from a garrison state? We will be worse off than it is now in Somalia. The better choice is to strengthen our agencies task in securing our lives and properties. Let them have the sole authority to carry arms. Criminalizes the act of carrying arms in public places outside the home. This alone will reduce the incidence of street killings by loose or license firearms.

    That would be good, senators including congressmen should be allowed to carry firearms even inside the halls of congress. No need for them to mount an ambush of presumed enemies. They can shoot it out with each other right there inside the House and the senate. There’s a drawback though to lady lawmakers. But hey, bring your husbands. The priests, anybody who shouts “Damaso”! inside the church would have his life in peril. For the gov’t. engineers, contractors could get even right there in the field if they (gov’t. engineers) demand way too much kikil.

    Before issuance of permit to carry guns, a background check has to be done if the applicant has a reputable character. Take note that being a senator does not ensure having a reputable character. In fact congress and the senate have too many dishonorables as members. Being a plagiarist automatically disqualifies an applicant. Also disqualified should be Santa clause impostors giving money gifts but actually is coming from the pockets of the Filipino taxpayer.

    I am okay for Senators to be allowed to carry guns but only during their tenure as Senators. Once their term expires, the permit to carry should be revoked. However, I am alarmed of Sen Sotto reason to want to carry a firearm because as he said, he is the whipping boy of some people. This reasoning seems to project that he want a firearm not for protection while on duty but so he can use it in retaliation being a whipping boy. Wrong purpose Tito Sen and you will be starting a precedent for the common citizen to justify carrying a hand gun because he is being bullied by other people.

  • Garote

    Why have classifications on who can and cannot possess or carry guns? We are all equal under the law, whether you are an ordinary person or a professional. Under the law, we have the right to defend ourselves and our families. This gun control or gun ban are violation of such right, it protects only the criminals and abets them in doing their nefarious activities, Our police and military cannot protect us because they are the usual suspects doing the illegal activities and extrajudicial killings.If not, they are detailed as personal bodyguards of our corrupt politicians, who shamelessly pride themselves with uniformed men guarding them wherever they go, These politicians are supposed to be our servants, who should be serving us and not taking away our protectors in uniform to act as their body guards. Throw out the gun control law as restricting our rights to self defense and protection.

  • ceejay2420

    The people in the list are practically all the professionals who don’t need gun just everybody else in the practice of their trade. This will mean more guns will be sold but will not make our society safer.What they need is a a secured and peaceful working and living environment which our police and other law enforcement authorities are supposed to do.

    What is needed is the strict observance of existing gun laws so that only those who are into law enforcement are the only one carrying guns. There is massive proliferation of unlicensed guns of incredible calibers because many members from the police, NBI, and military are into gun running. Again, we have the situation where those given the powers to keep our people safe are abusing these powers resulting in making us more exposed to danger. Take the case of the Ampatuan. The military provided the family with a variety of weapons and ammunition in the guise they are helping fight the secessionists in the South. These weapons ended up being used to massacre people to keep their political hold.You visit the smallest barangay in the nation and you will find every tanod they have is armed with a revolver, only they are either paltik or genuine but unlicensed provided by the mayor of the town. There are more than sufficient laws in our country regulating gun ownership in our country. Enforcement of these laws is what we need.

    Ang galing ni idol sotto!  With all those millions doled out by Enrile, the senators can now buy hundreds of Bushmasters .223 assault rifles for protection… wag lang po kayo pabili ng baril sa purchasing arm ng PNP kasi baka ma overcharge po kayo… and besides, idol sotto should not be afraid of people personally hurting him… galit ang tao sa kabobohan nya at wala naman sigurong tao ang mananakit sa kanya dahil bobo siya!

    I was just curious as Mr. Sotto said, I don’t want the Filipino people paying for my bodyguard…
    All of you noo…kie senators & congressmen must to heed the will of the people not by just against the bill w/c is beneficial for all. Filipino people are paying to all you. Ordinary citizens are the law abiding taxpayers.
    Noo…kie senators & congressmen must to be rubout.

    hey wake up! We dont need any gun ban. We just need freedom and let us all take care of ourselves and we’ll take care and rid of these criminals, drug lords and their supporters.  For the politicians, you dont need a gun since you are honest and helpful people. Right Senator Sotto? looks like you are scared of your shadow.  Be brave to face it.

    Bakit kailangan pa ito Senator? Sinong Senator ang walang baril? Sabi mo kamo, bawasan ang mga baril nila at mga bodyguards. Nakakainis tingnan kung pumapasyal kayo, isang katerbang body guards ang kasama.
