For those "responsible gun owners" who have their guns registered, most of them disapprove the gun ban because they see bringing a gun serves as a protection for themselves. Should they encounter any incident that may harm their lives, they have their guns to protect them. But for some, they think that having a gun ban is the right thing to do in order to reduce the number of crimes.
Is having a comelec gun ban really the solution for this?
On a video shared on Facebook, a woman named Catherine with her daughter Chinna encountered a traffic accident wherein a guy suddenly pulled out a gun and pointed it at them despite the election gun ban.
The guy even claimed that he is a member of the Philippine Navy in which upon investigation, he is not a member but instead, his wife was said to be member and the gun in which he has in posession is the service revolver of his wife.
Base on a source, the man with the gun on the video was identified as Methusael B. Cebrian who is now facing 3 cases - Gun Ban (Omnibus election code), Grave Threat and RA 7610 (Violence against women and children)
Though on the video, moments later after the man pulled out his gun, the audio was muted. Even there was an evidence of the man having a gun, it was unclear why he did pulled it out due to the audio being removed. With that, we can't justify the whole incident.
Did he pulled out his gun because people are trying to harass him and he just wanted to protect himself? It was also seen that he is unsure of whether to really bring out his gun and was just provoked which made him pulled it out.
This is still a one-sided story. If only the video uploader didn't removed the audio on some parts, then we can tell why the man did pulled out his gun.
