    Thatís pretty good one. Works as a discouragement and hopefully they had special tape made for it to.

    Amazing how a "badge" changes the minds of the person wearing it, the world over. One would think mere compunction and honor would keep a person from being so reckless, though it's unsurprising the chief of police has to take extra steps to make the point clear. Sad.

    So, I suppose that the cops will not have a real need to use their guns over the holidays? I would be concerned with the tape not allowing pressure to get out of the barrel and getting a bulging barrel or worse.

    From my folks visiting P.I., you can pretty much pay off a cop, even on a traffic stop. Since cops over there are paid low wages, police corruption is very common there.

    Stuff like this makes me learn to appreciate my freedoms as a naturalized American citizen and be proud of it.

    Gun laws have changed quite a bit over the years in the Philippines. You can see gun ads in the big city newspapers. Can you imagine Glock or S & W advertising in the New York Times? Gun ads run in mainstream papers there. I have friends that used to travel there to compete. One of the Steel Challenge champions (Jethro Dionisio) and a great many world class shooters are from the Philippines. I would equate Manila to a 1970s New York. Crowded, full of pollution, rampant crime. Since its a third world country, a great many of robberies are committed with knives and toy guns. Everyday citizens do have freedoms there. Norinco, Rock Island Armory (a Filipino brand!), Glock are all top sellers in the Philippines. Guns are definitely not illegal there.
