Senator Panfilo Lacson claims that the Department of National Defense now has a reason to produce its own weapons rather than buying it from other countries.

“…there is now more reason for our Department of National Defense to revive our self-reliance program so we can produce our own weapons and ammunition and other military hardware,” Lacson said on his statement on Facebook. 

Lacson posted this statement after the United States revealed plans to stop selling firearms to the PNP (Philippine National Police) because of the extra judicial killings brought upon by President Duterte’s bloody war against drugs.

Some netizens also agreed with Lacson’s statement that the self-reliance program should be revived in PNP (Philippine National Police) and AFP (Armed Forces of the Philippines) as part of their modernization.

The government was encouraged by Senator Ralph Recto in 2012 to make PH-made firearms and ships. Doing so can generate more jobs for the Filipino people.
