  1. So big berd, you get to advocate again. As I said before, maybe we should follow your suggestion and we should start by handing out permits for AK47’s, rocket launchers and the like.

    The solution to violence is not guns. You watch too much TV where people shoot and ask later. Lets start a society based on your philosophy. Last name not Eastwood by any chance?

    Caymans society is based on peace and wherever you obtained your attitudes, I hope they go back to where they came from. The presence of Police might be a start. We have 350 on our force protecting 55 thousand people. A model unknown to other parts of the world.
