MANILA, Philippines - President Aquino has yet to discuss a proposal to impose a gun ban during the holiday season to prevent stray bullets, Deputy Presidential Spokeswoman Abigail Valte said Friday.

Asked about concerns that the President would not support a gun ban given the fact that he is a gun enthusiast, Valte said "that is an unwarranted assumption."
"The President is a smoker, however, he pushed very hard for the sin tax. That is the basis that I am able to say that that is an unwarranted assumption," she said.
