    Absurd!!…..the authorities can find a guy with a half of a spliff on any given day but can’t detect guns and ammunition that arrive by the only way they can arrive…by air or sea…. smh

    Politicians grow some gonads and revise the penalties…..caught with just ONE round 7 years (yes that round was meant to kill). More than one round?…add one year for each. Caught with a gun?..MANDATORY 15 YEARS plus charged for every crime committed with it and hanged if it was for a murder.
