PNP Moves Gun Registration Online

It makes the registration process for gun owners a little easier

Anybody who has legally owned a firearm in the Philippines knows how much of a pain in the butt it is to apply for a license via the Philippine National Police’s License to Own and Possess Firearms (LTPOF) program. It involves a lot of standing in line, going back and forth to Camp Crame and a truckload of patience. But that’s all going to be in the past, as the PNP is now allowing gun owners to schedule appointments and renew their LTPOF license online.

PNP launches online LTOPF and Firearms Registration System

Posted by Philippine National Police on Tuesday, April 4, 2017

If you’re looking to get your LTPOF, you now only have to visit the site, register using a government-issued ID and then upload all the requirements that the PNP’s Firearms and Explosives Division needs via the website. Once you pay all the associated fees, you’ll be able to schedule your appointment to undergo the government mandated neuro and drug tests needed for the license.

The new system will be able to cut out middle-men (fixers) in the process, and will encourage more people to register previously licensed firearms with the PNP. Making the process easier incentivizes people who previously had firearms licenses under the old system to register their now loose firearms with the PNP and cuts corruption in the ranks of the FEO, much like how the Department of Foreign Affair’s appointment system cut the need for fixers to renew passports.
