Guns Guns Guns everywhere! Every time you look in the paper or turn on the news there is another shooting.
Four people were shot in separate incidents between Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning according to The Tribune.
Later Wednesday afternoon a Woman was killed when she and her son were both shot on Step street.So within two days we have one murder and five persons seriously injured in shootings? WOW!
What is this, the Wild Wild West?
One thing a lot of the shootings have in common recently is they have been drive by shootings. And if you think about it these criminals are not shooting up outside their homes. So they are traveling with these weapons.
Last i check, we are not the United States of America, We have no 2nd Amendment; The right to keep and bear arms. So how is it that these guys are so free to travel up and down this small island with guns?
Consider this; what if the police were to have more road blocks? Random Road Blocks… not the monthly road blocks to check for license and registration that everyone and they mother know about.
Random Places/streets and Random times between 6pm – 6am, week nights and weekends.
What would happen is;
Criminals would think twice about “riding dirty” if they knew they were likely to be stopped and searched.
If they still choose to, then they would be more likely to be caught and locked up… or better yet get in a shootout with police and killed.
Either way the end result would be the same we would have less shootings, less murders and less crime. Its not quite a solution, but kind of a hindrance that makes it that much harder for criminals to operate.
And here is the evidence that this would work: Men in Shoot out with police after traffic stop!
