It is about 6:20 pm local time on New Year's eve here in Manila and it is getting real firecrackery outside! Most are small but some are quite big and give quite a report.

Davao City (30 December) — Davao City Mayor Rodrigo R. Duterte warned firearm holders, whether civilians or men in uniforms, against firing their guns on New Year’s eve.

Philippine National Police Regional Director P/Chief Superintendent Ricardo C. Quinto issued the same warning not only to members of the PNOP but also to civilians with permits to carry firearms.

“If we say nobody should fire their firearms, this goes to everybody in government or otherwise,” the Mayor said.

Hehehe, I would guess concern for this applies to Manila as well but I am aware no such statement from authorities here.

Happy & Safe New Year to All!
