1 Deadly weapons? on Mon Jan 03, 2011 10:36 pm


Arresto Menor
Due to increasing Traffic related violence, my cousin wants to protect , himself. He is planning to maybe carry a baseball bat, arnis, brass knuckles or an iron pipe in his car's trunk.. But is quite worried to be charged with carrying deadly weapons during police checkpoints.

Are the above weapons considered deadly and against the law?

pd no. 09

2. It is unlawful to possess deadly weapons, including hand-grenades, rifle grenades and other explosives, including, but not limited to, "pill box bombs," "molotov cocktail bombs," "fire bombs," or other incendiary device consisting of any chemical, chemical compound, or detonating agents containing combustible units or other ingredients in such proportion, quantity, packing, or bottling that ignites by fire, by friction, by concussion, by percussion, or by detonation of all or part of the compound or mixture which may cause such a sudden generation of highly heated gases that the resultant gaseous pressures are capable of producing destructive effects on contiguous objects or of causing injury or death of a person; and any person convicted thereof shall be punished by imprisonment ranging from ten to fifteen years as a Military Court/Tribunal/Commission may direct.

3. It is unlawful to carry outside of residence any bladed, pointed or blunt weapon such as "fanknife," "spear," "dagger," "bolo," "balisong," "barong," "kris," or club, except where such articles are being used as necessary tools or implements to earn a livelihood and while being sued in connection therewith; and any person found guilty thereof shall suffer the penalty of imprisonment ranging from five to ten years as a Military Court/Tribunal/Commission may direct.

while i don't think any law enforcement officer will arrest him for having kamong arnis clubs, if he wants less risky items, he should think of common items which can be rightfully brought. such as a tennis racket, tire iron, pvc pipe, etc.
