Martial Law - 60 days to collect firearms
Sen. Richard Gordon said martial law should have been declared immediately after the massacre but only in Maguindanao.
“Now that it has been declared, the President should formally report to Congress about the declaration,” Gordon said, adding the government should now take steps to collect illegal firearms and bring back peace and order in the province.
“They only have 60 days to do that,” Gordon said.
