Comments: The call by the opposition leader to allow every citizen to have free access to gun here is absolutely crazy. Most citizens here are nor matured enough, nor have the required self- discipline and are too hot headed and ill- tempered to be allowed access to a gun. Here at present, a simple argument between two adults could end up with one on a slab at the mortuary. No, allowing free access to guns here to our citizens is only going to make te situation worse and things will get really out of control and cause internal chaos. Many here are not educated or civilized enough to be trusted with the ownership of a gun. Moreover, since every other avenue have been exploited and failed in an effort to stem the flow of murders here. The only possibly solution now left is to restore the death penalty now, and start hanging those already found guilty of murders, and the majority of our citizens are now in favor of the reinstatement of the death penalty.So what are the politician waiting for?. If this in not done immediately we could all just sit back and watch the daily rate of murders excel.

Title: Murders in Trinidad

Comments: Gun controls do NOT work. The old saying- guns don't kill- neither do cars, planes, seas, rivers etc. Individuals are responsible for these 'untimely' deaths. There needs to be an inner and a social awakening of our actions. This is NOT going to be achieved overnight- but it will take generations to re-engineer who and what we have become.
This re-engineering starts with the fundamental teachings and understanding that WE are of one-. Our respect and love for one another. It doesn't say that we MUST agree with each other - only to understand that we see things differently and why this might be so.
Can this basic message ever be taught and understood? Yes it can. Are we willing to try it?- It is for each of us to answer.

Comments: The present method of the control of guns on this island will never work as there are too many points of entry to smuggle illegal firearms into this country. The gun trade here is a booming business as shown in the high annual murder rate of which most are committed by the use of the gun. The only solution left now is to increase the penalty for illegal gun ownership to ten years imprisonment. Another alternative which may help to reduced the high amount of guns in circulation is to introduce a buy back scheme, with no questions asked. This may encourage those in urgent need of cash to sell guns whether illegal or not to help in their financial survival.It may, on the other hand, flood the market with a continuous flow of illegal firearms if the buy back price is too high.At least, in the end, it will help in the reduction in the amount of guns in the hands of some of our local criminals.

Title: Why T&T is in a bad shape

Comments: Well well well police of T&T, guns and more guns are pouring in daily into T&T, that's a fact. So where are those coming from? You have done some sting operations and have captured thugs with guns, so what make of guns are they? Are they guns that are coming from neighboring Venezuela? Or are they US made guns? US made guns means that your crooked Customs Officials are getting a big cut to have those guns come in - dumb asses! On the other hand Latn Made guns are coming from Venezuela via your unprotected coasts or, allowed to enter the country via your corrupt coast guards and fisher men. Too many guns people and soon those guns will be turned on the way of life of all citizens - a fate waiting to happen. Always good to follow the money - whose is getting rich among the crooks, law enforcement officers, Customs Officers etc., there you will find some clues. In the meantime good look trying to survive!

Title: Gun laws in T&T

Comments: The demand for guns by private citizens certainly increases the stock of guns on this island. Moreover in my opinion if the local police were never armed in the first place the criminals would have never resorted to acquiring the arsenal of such weapons and matching ammunition they now possess. It follows logically that the surge in the demand by citizens for gun permits would never have arisen in such a situation.
