GUN PLAY


Calls are being made for the implementation of tougher gun policies on the island. The call comes from human rights advocate Miss Felicia Brown.
The advocates made the comments Tuesday following news that a student of the Corinth secondary School took a gun to class.
Law enforcement officials have since launched an investigation into the matter.
This is the second recent incident in which students have been found to be in possession of firearms.
Just recently, two students of the Clendon Mason Secondary School were arrested after photographs of them armed with guns began making the rounds on social media.
Assistant Commissioner of Police with responsibility for Crime and Intelligence, Wayne Charlery confirmed that the first incident remains under investigation.
Human rights advocate Felicia Brown says it is extremely disturbing when young people especially minors are found engaging in such activities.
She believes the department of education must put programs in place to educate the youth about the repercussions of gun violence and having illegal firearms.
She believes failure to do so may lead to what currently exists in the United States where students are killing their school mates.
Education officials were unavailable for comment on the matter.
