    Gun shot wound to the head and discharged? I’m sure he was grazed by this bullet.

    With a population of about two hundred and fifty thousand and 166 square miles seeing this almost weekly if not daily is now saddening. It doesn’t give anyone tourists or locals confidence in going about their everyday normal activities at all. Wishing the gunshot victim a seedy recovery

      Bernard Mccollin hopefully some kind of positive influence or interest is implemented there pretty soon. Does not seem from all that I read there’s any getting things under control. Seem to be happening far to often now. If only the government was not so incompetent they would focus on what really matters. The lives of the citizens and visitors alike

      Perhaps the ignorance when this started that this would never happen in Barbados has contributed to this situation.

      Gail Agard Wallace yes! It seems like an everyday thing . Perhaps instead of focusing on stopping the poor man from eating with all the higher tax the politicos there would take a look at how so many guns are getting on the little piece of rock and figure a way to try to either stop or control entry.

    Smh… wild wild west until someone’s toddler is murdered innocently. Stricter gun control required as well as more stringent penalties… to late shall be our cry. #guncrimeslikeoneaday

    When I talk to foreigners and friends overseas about this island I do it with so much pride, passion and love and I wasn’t even born here. I wonder if at this rate I’m gonna be able to do the same without feeling sad. SMH

    Persons working at our borders are either not doing their job well; are being paid to keep their mouths shut or are too afraid of reporting about the guns and bullets entering the island.

    My question is when will our AG admit we have a serious gun problem in Barbados and start to do something about it.The last coference they heldleft me confused as I heard the AG saying that he drove from point A to B and he felt safe,what I was expecting him to say was a plan to deploy the BDF with the police on joint patrls in these hot spots like Blocks and root out some of these trouble makers.At least the ag Commisioner spoke about increased searches which I agree with.I also want to see the return of Hanging and the Cat in Barbados since if you take a life you should forfeit yours.I know a lot of the youths will think twice if this was the case.Time to get tough with these criminals.,Twenty five years for anyone found with guns.

      Very well said.
      Barbados is a wonderful island but if gun control and other violent crimes aren’t sorted and continue to escalate then tourists will stop coming.

      This happened on Jamaica and the DR – where now visitors stay on all-inclusive locations and never leave them – hence very little money going into the island economy to restaurants, shops, tourist attractions etc etc etc.

      Please ……….. don’t let it be a case of ‘too little, too late’.

      This wonderful island mustn’t be destroyed by the minority – and the elected Government MUST step up to stop it
      happening.

    Somebody making lots of money at the ports to let these guns in. Regardless where they are coming from. Before we go there.

    Persons on the top level and the AG will respond accordingly to this issue when the US embassy issues an official warning of caution when coming to barbados.
    Only then will they take it seriously.

    US Embassy probably issued travel bulletin already. The AG say we safe.
