    The gun is the weapon of choice of these murderers. Without this particular instrument of death, the homicide rate in Dominica will be drastically reduced. The authorities need to devise ways to get the illegal guns and ammunition off the street and stop the illicit importation of said weapons. It will take hard work by the security forces but it must be done. Believe it or not, Dominica is still a relatively peaceful place in comparison to most Caribbean countries. Having said all of that, it takes the entire society to fight crime.

      Ibo guns don’t kill people. The real instrument of death is actually the person behind the gun. My dad was a policeman and even as a child I was accustomed to seeing, touching and cleaning guns as myself and my siblings were taught just about all there is to know about them,however I never got to fire one shot up to this day. Discipline along with conflict resolution is what needs to be adopted. I personally see no need for a gun.

    I think that they should re-enstate the death penalty, too many of our young men are loosing their lives through foolishness, now a days they cant settle their scores without a gun being involve. Some guys are saying “I will kill you and go and spend 4 years in prison” Should they be thinking that when they takes another life, their lives would be also be taken, then they would be thinking differently.
