Philippine 2010 Election Gun Ban Starts

The chief of the Philippine Police reminded the public that airsoft guns or gun replicas have been included in the election period’s gun ban starting January 10, 2010, until June 09, 2010.

Director Roberto Rosales, chief of the The National Capital Region Police Office, urged airsoft gun owners and enthusiasts, in a statement, to refrain from carrying their guns so as not to violate Commission on Elections Resolution 8714, which included airsoft guns and gun replicas in the list of items covered by the gun ban.
