    The court system must have some teeth to fully deal with persons carrying guns and not holding a permit . The jail time spent must be from 10 to 15 years for all those persons caught with illegal fire arms and ammunition . Murder charge is LIFE in jail . Too many guns in Barbados but the main problem is ” where are these people getting the bullets”? . One must have a constant supply of ammunition in order to keep doing damage. GUNS ARE NO GOOD WITHOUT BULLETS.

    Guns will stay and get rusty and add to Bees metal stock plie if there are on bullets .
    When someone is arested on a firearm charge , please inquire where they are getting the BTLLETS from, who are the suppliers . Until then , we will just be spinning to in mud .
