Criminals coming with high powered rifles and the most an ordinary citizen might get is a pistol. They also coming in numbers and will have the element of surprise. So having a gun doesn't make it an equal playing field. The solution to crime is to go after all these gangs and lock them up.

Title: Guns

Comments: Citizens in Trinidad need to be armed! Criminals attacking civilians who cannot defend themselves is totally insane and this is why the crime will continue to rise and more innocent defenseless people will be killed. How can no one see this?! Don't just allow guns to every civilian. Of course, people should have to pass the gun safety tests and apply showing certain criteria met and be above 21 or so. It is possible to stop the crime. If politicians stop being shady and the criminals know that people can defend themselves… they will think twice before robbing and killing because the stakes would be even!

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.
