“Makikita natin na hindi lamang sa pagsasagawa ng mga COMELEC checkpoints tayo ay nakakahuli ng lumalabag sa Nationwide Gun Ban bagamat kahit sa mga ibang police operations natin ay nakakahuli tayo ng Gun Ban violators. Ito ay sanhi ng ipinatutupad natin sa SPD na intensified anti-criminality operations” Macaraeg said.
