  1. Several murders were committed using a cutlass. There should be restrictions on cutlasses being in the open in public. They should be carried around in a bag and that is if it is being taken to the mountain or on the sea. It has become a dangerous weapon and there should be restrictions. There is no 2nd amendment in SVG for this crap.

  2. Skeckpalmer where have you been? Cutlass has always been the choice of weapon used to murder people in SVG; it only became second with the proliferation of guns.
