QUESTION from Chat: Sir John, why are there few persons in the thread who appear to be promoting the proliferation of guns?
ANSWER: PROGUN-Runners are composed of people in the business of selling guns. They gun-profiteers, they are anti-peace, they are PROGUN-Arrogance, and their marketing strategy are irresponsible. They believe that -- (1) more gun-aided-crimes would translate to increased feeling of terror by the people, then (2) the more people are afraid, they come in with their marketing slogan that says "owning a gun is the best self-defense", and (3) then more people will buy guns.
These gun runners are also the proponents of policy change that will not put a limit to number of guns a person can possess. In line with this, they don't like gun licensing but they want only person licensing. They are also don't want ammunition control. Another trademark proposal of these gun runners is they want the licensing to be administered by a Board of private persons that they can "influence".
These gun runners also earn a lot from percentages of grease money for no-hassle permits. Our society is facing a huge crime problem now because gun permit requirements are compromised by these gun runners in conspiracy with corrupt adjudicators in PNP.
