Crack Down on Private Armies

I know my drawing does not really represent how well-equipped the so-called private armies in Maguindanao Province after the Armed Forces of the Philippines was able to find high-powered arms and ammunition in the province which has been under Martial Law. The arms and ammunition were excavated in lots that allegedly belonged to the Ampatuans while some were found in the mansion of Datu Unsay Andal Ampatuan Jr. during a raid of the military.

Most of the arms and ammunition have labels that show they were/are coming from the Department of National Defense/AFP. Well, anyway, we hope that the efforts of the military, especially with the declaration of Martial Law there, will be able to crack down on the private armies not only in Maguindanao but also in other areas in the country.
