    Little Dominica has too many guns. They may be unlicensed ones.
    Too many guns are in the hands of irresponsible people. Who gave them to you? Where did you get them from?
    Some of you may not be able to read and write properly but you have guns. You do not even know how to communicate and properly with your fellow people. Instead you feel the result is to use a gun to injure and/or kill them. This never wins an argument. Shame on you! What you sow you will reap in time and two-fold.
    You cannot go to Heaven with a gun nor having shot your fellow men. Therefore, put the gun down and never use it again.
    Repent, worship, pray, make penance and sacrifice with a humble and contrite heart. This is the only way to appease God and to be forgiven. Otherwise. . . :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

      @jane doe. How about telling skerrit to provide jobs to every qualified individual and not only to his supporters because it is tax payers money that paying the salaries and not his money or his party money.
      If mister does’t stop that, the wrath of God will really come down on this country.
      Evil set of people

    It is not up to you to decide who should live and who should die. All you need to kill a human being with a gun is by pulling a trigger. thou shall not kill. Young ; capable and strong people make the fool out of themselves.

      if you expect people to give you anything and you not taking responsibility for your life and your own actions you destined for a very hard life!
      A boy becomes a man the day he decides to take full responsibility for his life, situation and actions. Only boys that blaming other man for their situation.

      Fool! Only these blame the government and continue to do so. They had an opportunity to attend school and graduate and search for a job. First ask them what happened to them that they have to resort to crimes. No excuse for them. Place the blame on them.
      Do you think when they, having lived a life of crime and stand before God for their eternal judgment, he will exonerate them?
      People are responsible for themselves. God gave them a life. It is up to them what they do with it. This will be a determining factor what type of life they live. They will bear the consequences of their action, one way or the other. It will have absolutely nothing to do with the government.
