    He has got to be a very bold dim-wit to try to bring them in through the Port, maybe he got away with it before and was trying his luck again.Security has got be maintained and further tightened. Guns, and especially illegal guns, in the wrong hands pose a serious threat to entire communities.

    Kudos to the officials for the discovery, But before we condemn the young man the investigations must proceed and the right questions must be asked to confirm his part in the act and that he is either criminal or victim.
