For John, BLUF: Banning guns doesn't prevent criminals using guns. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Earlier today we talked about a home invasion, out in Fairborn, Ohio. Now we skip across the Pacific to the Philippines, where the President, Mr Benigno Aquino, III, is concerned about armed robberies, even though guns have been banned.
President Aquino is alarmed by the spate of armed robberies in shopping malls and other high-profile crimes in Metro Manila despite a nationwide gun ban, Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas said Wednesday.But they have a "nationwide gun ban."
Of course the President is concerned.
