    I doubt Alden’s promise of reducing gun crime 60% will come true, but it’s easy to make such a promise, pure semantics and BS.

    This is what happens when ghetto politicians like Mac and Eugene dumb down their people and keep them all on handouts. West Bay is a shithole thanks to them!

      The Nations Capital is also a “shit hole” so careful how you label a district because most likely in a road near you is a firearm or crackhead or a spot where someone is murdered. Anyone that tries to tarnish West Bay by current news is clearly in denial or sheltered. Every district has someone that has been murdered from the 1900’s and up. But hey if you need someone to talk about to distract people from your “shit hole” go ahead.

    So, run me through the gun amnesty again.
    True, it did take potentially lethal weapons away from individuals who were never likely to use them for murderous purposes, and stop them from being used by those that do, (in theory). And that’s a good thing.
    But how many semi auto handguns or revolvers were handed in by remorseful bandits. And how many more do you think are arriving weekly since the amnesty?
    Those morons in WB, or anywhere else on this rock, won’t be satisfied until their vision of respect kills off ‘paradise’ for good.

      @12:46pm Youre an idiot if you think a gun amnesty or Alden Mclaughlin is going to stop gun crimes. Even if he did stop gun crimes by 60% that other 40, 30, 20, 10 percent means you can still get your head blown off. You need two officers at every door in Grand Cayman to deter any criminal. And if there is no guns left on island then that means knife crimes will be up then what? Make them illegal too?

        FINally. The voice of reason. That is exactly what happens in every country that removes firearms from the hands of the law-abiding citizens. We can’t even have pepper spray. There will be no point to making knife crimes illegal, because the bad guys will still have guns.

      Government and police can’t remove guns from people. We need family/friends need report to the TIP line who have illegal guns. There is someone out there knew who have guns.

          Good point 5:01 and Sex Edu was actually in middle & high school up until the early 90’s but due to so called budget restraints and the church opposing it we no longer have it as a subject. Even condoms used to be distributred to encourage safe sex practices so now teenage pregnancy is now the norm and so is high school dropouts.

        Forced sterilization for some of dem geniuses.
