The Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) is seeking the lifting of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) gun ban.

VACC founding chair Dante Jimenez said the ban renders private citizens helpless in defending themselves in case of possible crime.

Jimenez also called the ban "senseless" particularly for people like him who have gun license and are aiding crime victims.

"I think this is stupidity. I think it's unfair and unjust sa amin, lalo na kami drive groups. Kami ay tumutulong sa mga biktima ng heinous crimes. Eh paano naman 'yung depensa namin? Can the Comelec assure us 24/7 ng aming security?" Jimenez said.
