      I totally agree. But it would be interesting to know how and where he was able to get such a deadly weapon.

    What is this young man doing with such in his possession. ..unless. …he has a motive.

    Is he working for someone? Like wiping man out for his $500…the kind of talk you hear from them. Or is he trying to impress his peers.

    Whatever the reason…he had an illegal firearm. His ass should be jailed. And not for a few years…..for a very long time when he old and Grey. And he can’t get an erection no more. Let him miss out on good life. Those dumb little boys

      How can you deny a person a lawyer isn’t there for only innocent people,they are there for everyone so one can at least get a chance to defend them selves, a lawyer never asked his client if his guilty or not he just use the information given to him to defend his client

    you know why gros islet and south , basically everywhere APART from Castries will prosper ? cause Castries alone get attention
    like is us alone that have criminals
    how often will you see officers patrolling these other places as heavily as they do the city
    and the criminals know that
    they’re not dumb
    so they make links with people outside the city to hide their heat

    He did not buy this TEC-9 from Amazon.com so he must be interrogated until he discloses the source of his weapon. It will be interesting to find out how many guns are smuggled into the island through the Rodney Bay Marina and its environs.

    How are these sophisticated guns been smuggled into the country undetected? The police should improve their intelligence in order to eliminate or severely curtail the inflow of illegal firearms. If all law abiding citizens and residents are willing to assist the police in this endeavor, then and only then law enforcement would succeed in arresting this unacceptable high rate of gun violence. Crime is everybody’s business we should not rely only on the police to fight it.

    Hmmmmmm, gun looks a bit like a plastic replica. See cheap plastic smooth pistol grip and cartoon lettering above the trigger. Even the trigger looks fake.

      You are partially correct. A portion of the weapon is not actually metalm but rather polycarbonate, a high-tech and non-metallic material with performance specs that exceed metal.

      One does hope that our law enforcement takes this very, very seriously. This isn’t grandpa’s 6-round 38 Special.

      One also hopes that they work carefully with off-shore jurisdictions re intel and serial number if not already filed off. They typically aren’t moved individually, there’s a shipping container or lorry sitting somewhere that would have had more. If it’s from a collection, what’s left (that wasn’t earlier first cherry-picked before even the “sloppy seconds” reaching SLU) will likely also include a selection of rifles, undesirable revolvers, some 9’s and a few gauges.

      The Tec-9 hasn’t been produced for a number of years, and was first popularized on American TV shows as a preferred fashion weapon of choice by younger types involved with gangs and narcotics. Now, it is more of a retro collectors item, given the evolution of firearms technology and evolving preferences for the latest “cool” weapons, such as Sig Sauer and and the latest lightweight polycarbonate hardware.

      One would hope that the enforcement officials also examine it to determine if it was a closed-bolt model or an open-bolt model, the open-bolt model being the preferred model by the bad guys because it’s very easy to convert to full auto.

      This showing up now in SLU might indicate that the seized weapon was part of a collection that was stolen from a private collector in the U.S. or New Yorico.

      Law enforcement really needs to sweat the kid on this and relentlessy, “no mercy, no quarter” with their full unharnessed authority pursue this investigation, hunt down those responsible, and make certain that it is well publicized, both for the peace of mind of our citizens as well as for the nervous travel agents and tourists that Google everything before they make any reservations.

      Aside from its acute lethality in the hands of a trained shooter with a high-cap mag, with it’s small size and it’s kick-back even in semi-auto mode, in the hands of an untrained, unlicensed shooter, most people don’t even hit at what they are shooting at, but rather can’t control the firearm as it discharges, resulting in needless innocent collateral damage.

      For context, this was one of the weapons used by the two “Trenchcoat Mafia” wack-jobs in the mass murder at the high school in Columbine.

      Here are a couple of links to give an idea of this firearm:



      The safety of our citizens is paramount.

      The government has a chance with this to show what it’s made of with respect to a public safety agenda for our island and collaborating with off-shore jurisdictions. The opposition has an opportunity to take a bi-partisanm collaborative approach to unite in an issue of concern to all St. Lucians.

      God Bless.
