Senator Panfilo Lacson on Tuesday said the Philippines "does not stand to lose anything" if the US State Department would end the arranged offer of somewhere in the range of 26,000 attack rifles to the Philippine National Police (PNP).
“Since it's a planned sale of assault rifles by the US to the Philippines, we do not stand to lose anything except one less gun store to choose from,” Lacson, former chief of the PNP, said in a statement.
“There are tens of other countries that manufacture better and probably cheaper assault rifles than the US,” he added. [source]
