  1. Many guns are in the hands of members of the phantom squad, they should be the first to hand in,,,all them x police and body guards for the jail bird Roger K, one was shot in regent street and was returning fire did he turn in his,,,ottis,,,just one example why this thing will not work,,,the ppl out in the street know all the untouchable subjects, they do what ever they feel, the law cannot work for some and others are to BIG,,,

  2. What is it that the upper echelon in Government can’t grasp ? Especially folks trained in military warfare and military psychology ….. pay for the guns and ammo…. then you have some success…. just common sense…
