Senator Panfilo Lacson on Wednesday reacted to the US after they stopped the sale of firearms in the Philippines. He said what the US showed was not a "scare tactic but a bully attitude" towards the Philippines.
"The United States' decision to halt the planned sale of 26,000 rifles to the Philippine National Police was not a scare tactic but a bully attitude towards a longtime ally – which is not fair, the Philippines being an equally sovereign state," Lacson said.
"Prudence dictates that the US State Department should first show a conclusive investigation that affirms what Sen. Benjamin Cardin has alleged before issuing a statement banning the sale of assault rifles to our uniformed services," Lacson added.
Earlier, President Duterte also said the same thing with the US that it was not a scare tactic.
Sen. Lacson urged the PNP to start for looking another source where they could buy firearms.
While Senator JV Ejercito also commented about the halt of rifles.
