  1. So the hottest Item on the open market is Guns and Ammunition, as far as St. Lucia is concerned; then if that be the case, why not provide a special location where one can buy your Saturday-night Special, a ak-47, etc. government can collect revenue on tax, licenses and customs duties and rent on market Booths; just a thought; but on a more serious note, innocent people all around are paranoid; no one trust anyone any more. Certainly, gone are the days when we could leave home, just close the door after you, we never locked any doors. So welcome to the Brave New World, the modern times, the world that think that crime pays – yes pays your way to Hell fire – after prison and mental pain. What happens to the hundreds who, knowing they have killed some one, even though they have spent time in prison for the crime, old age and illness creeps in, just can,t work anymore, can one fall back into crime as before? there is serious and very serious social and psychological problems facing St. Lucia in the near future. For those who have turned their backs on the Almighty, He is waiting for your return. God is love, come home.
