“Golding said that a resolution was now before the United Nations (UN) for an international convention to restrict the illegal trafficking in small arms. The prime minister did not say who brought the resolution to the UN, nor did he hide his dismay about the flow of guns into Jamaica.
“The overwhelming majority of guns coming into Jamaica are of United States (US) manufacture,” Golding said.
“The inflow of guns into Jamaica is what facilitates most of the murders that are committed. The security forces recover, on average, 600 guns each year. We suspect that a greater number enter the island each year, creating an ever-increasing arsenal of illegal weapons, snuffing out lives with callous brutality,” the prime minister told Parliament.
Golding also said his Government intended to renew efforts to “strengthen bilateral cooperation with the US with a view to addressing the flow of illegal guns from the US to Jamaica with the same vigour that we seek to apply to the flow of illegal drugs from Jamaica to the US”.”
GIVEN THAT SOME PEOPLE FEEL EUROPEANS WANT ALL PEOPLE OF COLOR IN SERVITUDE OR WORSE, HOW CAN TALKING TO THE US HELP ANYTHING? IF THEY WANT TO SEE US PERISH AND FAIL….IMAGINE A BUSTLING AND STRONG JAMAICAN ECONOMY RIGHT BESIDE THE US THEY WOULD BE MORITIFIED. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?
