    Isn’t your vehicle private property? Don’t they need a warrant? Also what protection is afforded to a citizen from arbitrary aka random search? .

      Oh wow, what a comment. Then y’all say police ain’t doing nothing n too many teenagers have illegal weapons n so on. You really don’t make sense with that comment. Who knows what would’ve been those two teens next move if they weren’t searched n arrested?? Oh that’s what I thought.

    I’m not sure if this person has been affected by gun violence or had a family member or friend affected. If they had the statement would have been different. But what do I know!

      This is great news and I applaud the police in ridding Antigua of illegal guns. Too many of us are afraid to live in our place of birth since it seems to be no different from where we spent our working years when it comes to gun violence and other violent crimes so this is a step in the right direction.
