President Rodrigo Duterte Unveils Plan to Arm Civilians in the Philippines

Published

on

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has a bold plan to combat crime in his country.

According to a report from Second Amendment Daily News, Duterte is giving away guns to private individuals in an effort fight off drug gangs.

He is specifically arming “Barangay Captains” who have previously been reluctant to report gang and drug-related crime. Such hesitance to report crimes was out of fear of violent repercussions from the gangs and drug dealers that they would be reporting on.

After careful deliberation with police and intelligence agencies, Duterte announced that he would provide community leaders with guns from the state arsenal.

According to Martin Dino, the Interior Department Secretary in charge of the Barangays, there are 42,000 of these “captains” who would be eligible to receive free or subsidized guns in private purchases.

Dino stated: “The condition is that the barangay captain should fight drugs and crime. If he is conniving with criminals, he could be the one shot.”

Earlier in June, Duterte declared that barangays would receive the same treatment as law enforcement or soldiers. In other words, Duterte proclaimed that they “will never go to jail” if they shot suspected criminals while on duty.

Edmund Abesamis, the president of the association of barangay officials, claims that this plan to arm civilians has the backing of the barangay association.

The plan to arm civilians is supported by the association of barangay officials, according to its president, Edmund Abesamis.

Unlike America, which has an extensive gun culture and very pro-gun laws when compared internationally, the Philippines does not have many options when it comes to arming it citizens.

Ideally, the country would have similar Second Amendment protections like America.

In the meantime, gun owners worldwide can at least breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Duterte is not going on anti-gun tirades like most international politicians are these days.

Bronx Bobblehead AOC Believes that the Current Budget Cut to NYPD is Not Enough

Published

on

On June 30, 2020, congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that New York City’s budget cuts to the police department were not sufficiently adequate, declaring that “defunding police means defunding police.”

“Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools,” the congresswoman remarked in a statement.

The defund the police meme has caused some debate in Democrat circles. Some Democrats believe that the phrase shouldn’t be taken literally and is only a slogan for police reforms.

“It does not mean counting overtime cuts as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues.”

On June 30, the New York City Council and Mayor Bill de Blasio came to a deal to slash $1 billion from the NYPD’s $6 billion budget.

“We’re acting on that call for justice. I believe it is our mission to redistribute resources to those who need them the most,” de Blasio stated, “This is real redistribution.”

Activists that agree with AOC’s radical anti-cop reforms said they won’t put up with any plan that merely reallocates money and does nothing to substantially gut police departments.

“No funny math. No budget musical chairs,” radical anti-law enforcement activists said in a letter on June 30 to the mayor and council. “We’ll know if you fought for our communities or whether you will let the NYPD continue to be treated as if they’re above the law, even in the budget.”

New York City is currently suffering from a $9 billion shortfall in revenue due to the Wuhan virus shutdowns.

New York is already an anti-gun state, with a ranking of 51st place according to Guns & Ammo magazine.

Defunding the police will only make New York City less secure and leave New Yorkers with virtually no options left for security.
