    A small place as Dominica and many people own guns. What need is there to own a gun and an unlicensed one at that? These guns should never have been allowed in D/ca. They have caused more harm than good.
    Many of these guns are illegal which is why when they are found, be it on a person, they should be confiscated.
    You are not a police officer or security guard what are you doing with a gun? Why bother to get one and where did you get it from?
    How and by what means did those guns find their way to D/ca?
    The only reason for these guns especially unlicensed ones is to kill people, to use it on others for their own evil purpose. This is why all these guns should be banned from D/ca.
    Those who are caught with unlicensed guns should be charged and sentenced to prison. Do not be easy on them for they are not easy on others, when they decide to use them.
    The police knows how many of them were used and how many nationals were killed by those guns. It is shocking!

  3. We see illegal guns and drugs being sold together once again. Both commodities are dangerous and life threatening. When a man wants a gun to commit a crime he will not go to a licensed gun dealer because he does not want to leave a trail. He goes to his local drug dealer. Obviously somebody who will sell a gun to kill with will sell drugs including marijuana so both drugs and guns can be purchased at the same place.

    The public should know where their political candidates stand when it comes to legalizing marijuana before election time rolls around. When a candidate sees his popularity is slipping it is not unusual for him to change his position on an issue to get the votes if he sees that is what the majority want.

    God bless the police for their good work.

    Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill.

      reverend go and take a bath in the sea before you come pounding the pulpit that the water is cold… Your very clear bias does nothing but say VOLUMES about the person that you are…. Some people have not one ounce of humility in themselves, yet we claim that this is the beginning of learning. If you want to castigate marijuana and its use so vehemently…why don’t you pontificate to someone whose life it has saved… I can see your prejudice going far beyond just this context…there is good and bad in all things …. EVEN IN YOU. But tell me good reverend….while you cast judgment on others… who judges you? and don’t tell me GOD… your use of the word “god” is just an embodiment of your values. and anything that goes against “GOD’S” values are condemned to hell …. smfh you sheepish drones …. So in your ” GODS” eyes your judgement is perfect… your seed is discord and you sow it so intently… how many more young people must be stigmatized and criminalized because…

        cont’d ……because of the poison that the reverend spews from his pulpit….Did “GOD” subcontract his Judicial Duties to you?? I thought your duty was to save. You conveniently wait in the comfort of the church for those ALREADY SEEKING salvation?? DO YOU GO TO THE BLOCKS? TO THE GHETTO? to the drug dealing battlefeilds??????? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
        But yet you find it convenient, A man who was born a reverend I supposed who has never rubbed shoulders with the dregs of society, but seem to be the vocal authority on all things criminal….. stop trawling the gossip and news columns of the media and actually come down and KNOW someone who NEEDS Salvation.. Give hope where there is None… But you just love to walk around with your big stick…. chanting the hopeless mantra from way back yonder…

      Ehh… Where exactly was it stated that ILLEGAL GUNS were being sold or DRUGS for that matter?

      Im sure your drug dealer sells guns to you too… since you know the process so well… Just a head nod and purchase…

      Better yet… When you want to buy chicken or a sandwich, i am now certain that you will go to a toy store or ice cream parlor…


      And to respond to your legalization confusions… start reading and broaden your knowledge platform…


      Stick to what you know…

      Stop writing this illogical nonsense. If marijuana is legalized people won’t need guns to protect it. Civilized societies all have legalized marijuana or decriminalized it. Your ideas are stuck in the dark ages
