  1. I need help, can someone explain what an auto sear is …… is that the same as the bump stop????
    If so this charge should be for an automatic weapon

  2. Bail $5.000.for the Firearm .$2.500 For the Ammunition cash or Suitable Surety.Surrender all Travelling Documents and Report twice to the Nearest police Station .That’s the only ountry on the Face of this World where Magestrates post these Ridiculous bail for possession. Of Illegal Firearms.The Attorney General or the Person in charge of These Magestrates should Dismiss all of them and Hire Foreigners to head the Courts in St.Lucia

  3. An auto sear (“automatic sear”) is a part of an automatic firearm that holds the hammer in the cocked position while the bolt of the weapon is cycling.

  4. Perhaps a simple yet effective step is to show their mug shots! Why? So employers like me can remember their faces cause alot of them are repeat offenders! Times…please post their pics cause dem magistrates are worthless on the topic of illegal firearm charges.
