Trinidad: Senator-Gun rental, big business

GOVERNMENT Senator Foster Cummings lamented that individuals have made a business of renting out guns to criminals to commit crime, speaking in the Senate on Tuesday in support of the Firearms (Amendment) Bill 2019 which imposes hefty punishment on repeat offenders in gun crimes.

Saying the gun has replaced the machete as weapon of choice for criminals, he said, “There is a gun rental arrangement, if you can’t afford to purchase and if you have a ‘wuk’ to put down.

“Some people have made that a business.”

Cummings said TT can’t just sit down and ignore crime, or it will just get worse.
