  1. can you even believe that it is much easier to obtain an illegal firearm than it is to apply for a legal one? you have to jump through all sorts of hoops and climb all sorts of ladders and even when you finally get it you still cant use it to protect your self/ family or business how necessary. so its like whats even the point of getting it legally this is the reason why there are so many Illegal firearms all over the place in the hands of people who dont deserve it.

    • Couldn’t agree more..Thought I was the only one…like you gotta sell your soul to acquire a firearm permit in this place…like it’s readily available for the bums ..go figure !

  2. @ JOHN SNOW: you got that right; are magistrates intimidated in St. Lucia? why not start making an example so that all miscreants are put on notice – cross this line & you’re in deep trouble – the whole trouble I think is the lax Court proceedings – too damn soft, and the people will continue to suffer: people should begin to demonstrate at Parliament, and begin to demand stronger legal actions against these thugs. The Churches should be helping too. A people deserve the government they get; let them know we are not happy. Lord have mercy.

    • @#THE FOX, I am happy someone shares my sentiments. All that says to the criminals is, no matter how many weapons the police take off the streets, we the courts will put you guys back on the streets to do it all over again.

      It’s clear that some of the policemen and women are frustrated by such actions. Why do all that hard work for the judges to just say you’re a bad boy and don’t do it again.

      You are so right. The issue I have with us Saint Lucians is we have mouth but no action. The talk all the talk and seat when they should walk. The need to make noise and be seen at the same time. Start protesting. They protested for this Floyd fella, the Rasta protested when those so-called royals came through.

      Why can they not protest for a better Saint Lucia from whichever Government that’s on power? All they do is complain.

    • to tell you the honest truth fox the way i see it the laws are made to justify the criminals and to make the innocent guilty. if you are innocent of something they try their best to make you seem guilty and when you are guilty they try the best to make you look innocent

  3. It’s the magistrate’s turn now. We want no tap on the hand. For this kind of weapon 30 thousand dollars cash or Bordelais.

    • @Lydia Estaphane, I would not hold my breath if I were you because he will get exactly that, a tap on the hand.

      Despite the new gun legislation being published, it is still up to the magistrate discretion which will be a mere 10 thousand dollars, or less and or suitable surety. The Saint Lucian circus continues!!!

  4. Yes i praise the police and security personals but HAVE WE FORGOTTEN THE DRUGS IN CONNECTION WITH COURTS ST LUCIA. YES THE LITTLE MAN GET BURSTED BUT THE ELITE ONES GETS AWAY WITH MURDER. I WONDER WHY? ARE PEOPLE GETTING PAID

    • So glad you brought this up because I have been patiently waiting for an update on this matter. Seems like someone paid their hush money and its being swept under the rug. But of course this is just speculation. Hopefully they can update the public on this matter soon.

  5. We really in need to have an open conversation and action on these types of weapons. Let be honest a person with this type of weapon is able to commit mass murder. The penalty should reflect a similar penalty for murder ……..
