I have trouble believing this is real, so if you happen to know....
You can no longer buy hammers inside shopping malls.
This after police and mall owners met on Monday and agreed that customers who will buy the tool will only be given a receipt, which they will have to use to claim the item outside mall premises.
President Aquino, along with Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Alan Purisima, Interior and Local Government Sec. Mar Roxas personally checked the situation in the Quezon City mall a few hours after the gang broke inside the department store and stole jewelry.
So, there ya have it. When hammers are outlawed, only outlaws will have hammers. Well, carpenters, too. And handymen. Construction workers.
But that's it.
