    Simple, small business and, or loyal members of the community that up hold the law, are not able to obtain a license of a fire arm, to protect his own… this is what is going to happen…..
    Tell me, why should a person be breaking into my home or on my property, harm me, my family and then this is the news headline? THINK!….Barbados think!!!!..

    Sinclair needs to send some of his HAMPERS up in St. George so that the people would stop thieving up there. Lots of people real hungry for Christmas.

    Going back to the old days remembering all busyness men, shop keepers and farmers kept their hand-gun and shot guns nearby. for the unusual occasion

    if these young people having access to guns without license.
    Then I think that all business people should be able to own a licensed gun.

    and further, as long as you reach the age of 50 you should be able to own a license gun for protection, the thief would think twice before he enters your home. It would be the wild wild west
