Election Gun Ban - January 13 to June 12, 2019

MANILA, Philippines — The gun ban to be imposed for the midterm elections will start on Jan. 13 and end on June 12, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Oscar Albayalde said.

While the ban is in place, licensed gun owners are not allowed to carry or transport their firearms outside their residence, but they may seek exemption from the Commission on Elections (Comelec), which will review the applications.

Albayalde said law enforcers on duty and in uniform are exempted from the gun ban. Also excluded are personnel of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Philippine Coast Guard, National Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement agencies.

Private security agencies may also be exempted from the gun ban. For politicians receiving threats, Albayalde said they may apply for security escorts from the PNP Police Security and Protection Group.
