    It’s the order of the day in BIM.

    Declare a gun amnesty; take all guns out of private hands; ban gun dealers and force them to hand over their customer lists; introduce new legislation punishing those found in illegal possession of guns. Make threatening to shoot people a more serious offence; bulldoze the gated communities with their Uzis and AK-47s.
    End of story.

    Hal and you honestly think that that will stop the inflow of illegal firearms into barbados?

    Think again guy.

    Hal is spot on. For what reason does BIM need gun dealers? A hard line must be taken and those in “high society” must not be exempt or that will be the gaping hole from which they will continue to flow.

    It will not, but the smugglers will know what they face if caught. Murder is illegal and in many countries the ultimate sentence is the death penalty. People still kill. Because people fiddle their taxes does not mean we should not tax people.

    There’s no end to the self promotion of this crude businessman.To suggest in taking private guns….this is not only ludicrous but naive and he knows it. Why not bulldoze port charles.

    Those who talk about the legal right to own arms should look at the shooting of that man’ back belly sheep for wandering on to someone else’s property.
    Where are the police, the attorney general, the Guyana-born DPP? Where are the voices speaking for the little guy.
    This is a prima facie criminal offence. Further, I will bet it was carried out with a legally owned gun.
    Why is the nation silent about this crime of vengeance?
    In the mid-1990s one farmer shot a young black man because he thought he was a monkey; Grantley Adam’s first case as a lawyer was to defend Swaine who also killed a little black boy who he thought was a monkey. Nothing changes.

    Here we go! Now if Port Charles is being offensive to this sovereign land then I think there is no such use for the Barbados Coast Guard, Customs Department or the Attorney General’s Office. Senior Police Officers need to do much better in tracing gun smugglers weather it be internal or external. Final word!
