  1. Storeowners and Homeowners who are responsible people, should have the available option of possessing a firearm. When are we going to realize that the Police cannot be there for us in all the time, and what Police officer in his right mind, will approach a criminal with a firearm when his Commissioner forbids him of carrying one.

    Cayman! Something practical has to be done!
