From the PNP website:
All licensed gun-owners applying for gun-carrying privileges are now required to personally submit their biometric fingerprint specimen and photograph as mandatory requirements for issuance of Permit to Carry Firearms Outside of Residence (PTCFOR).
These administrative requirements for issuance of PTCFOR were introduced by the PNP as basis in adjusting the records in the Firearms Information Management System (FIMS) database in order to further improve the processes in the issuance of firearms licenses and permits.
PNP Public Information Office Chief, Senior Superintendent Reuben Theodore Sindac said all these processes aim to streamline existing gun licensing procedures with the end in view of intensifying the campaign against delinquent gun owners and those in possession of loose firearms.
According to the PNP leadership, the operation against loose firearms is one of the most effective tools against organized crime groups, Partisan Armed Groups and Wanted Persons who usually use loose firearms as their primary instrument in carrying out criminal activity.
The PNP is in the continued implementation of Oplan “Katok” or house visits on licensed gun owners, to verify the current status of the guns and its registered owners.
Over the past six months, the PNP has conducted 464,996 house visits on registered gun owners with expired license to remind them of the their obligation to update their firearms records. (PNP-PIO)
