    I am so very worried that this wanna be gun culture that is sticking up it’s ugly head in different areas in SVG needs some very urgent attention before it gets really out of control, which in my case is not too far off,this needs to stop now. Newer and stricter gun laws ought to be put in place and fines and Jail time should be real solid for all gun offenses. Believe me I know what gun culture looks like, I know the sadness and pain it brings to so many people and by no means is it a good thing. If the situation in SVG isn’t taken care of very soon I’m afraid that it can be very destructive for Citizens, Country and the Economy on a whole. If it gets too dangerous, no one will ever want to visit and that will be a bad thing.We do not manufacture guns in SVG so we don’t need them on the streets nor in our Communities.

  2. after the police could not solve a simple case like the shooting of Mr C. John how are they going to be able to solve this?

  3. These killers are senseless thugs.They are senseless and ignorant . I hope they are caught and dealt with.
    I am a Vincy abroad and it seems that guns and lawlessness is becoming an epidemic in SVG.
    These lawless people need to be put in a concentration camp of extinction since they have no regard for human life.

  4. Why the commissioner not send the police that terrorised innocent citizens and demonstrators to look for those people with these weapons ? Its very scary hearing these things and the type of people who have these weapons. Frightening
