I agree with most of what you said. The two Ministers clearly did not contemplate the many ramifications of their decision to arm themselves, including the fact that they have made themselves targets of criminals wanting guns, and liable for misuse of them.

I disagree with the statement that we are in the second decade of this crime spree. This is the fifth decade. An important point, since Dr Nottage and I sat on many National Drug Council meetings, where our best experts predicted that this is where were headed.

That point is important when we hear the PLP blaming the present crisis on the FNM, being fully aware that the seeds were sown in the 70's and 80's.

Importantly, we are also dealing with the fourth generation of chronic drug users, now deeply affected by depression, mental and physical retardation, psychosis, lack of self esteem, lack of emotion, etc. that's why they can look a person in the face and shoot their brains out.
