Trinidad Says Handguns are Their Weapons of Mass Destruction

Dookeran: Handguns T&T's own weapons of mass destruction

SMALL ARMS, including handguns and rifles, are weapons of mass destruction in this country, said Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Dookeran.

Dookeran made the statement on Tuesday night as he delivered the opening remarks at a town meeting held by the Police Complaints Authority (PCA) at his constituency office in Tunapuna.

Dookeran is the Member of Parliament for Tunapuna.

"Small arms are an important part of the armoury of the criminal industry and the region has been somewhat exposed to the trade in small arms. For us, small arms are weapons of mass destruction."

What do you expect from a country where ANY form of camouflage pattern clothing (even lurid fashion camo) is illegal.

Yes, fly to T&T for a vacation and that camo sun hat, shorts, bikini, travel bag etc could get you into a whole heap of trouble.

Rights groups slam new U.N. arms trade treaty draft

Over the weekend, the National Rifle Association, a powerful U.S. pro-gun lobby, welcomed a measure adopted by the U.S. Senate on Saturday that called on the United States not to join the U.N. arms trade treaty. The NRA has vowed to fight hard to prevent ratification of the treaty if it reaches Washington.

The measure, which was put forward by Senator James Inhofe, an Oklahoma Republican, passed on a 53-46 vote. Several U.N. diplomats in New York said this was a sign of the difficulties the United States would have securing Senate approval of a pact.

"Thanks to the efforts of Senator Inhofe, we are one step closer to ensuring the U.N. will not trample on the freedoms our Founding Fathers guaranteed to us," said Chris Cox, executive director of NRA's Institute for Legislative Action.

The American Bar Association, an attorneys' lobbying group, last month disputed the NRA position on the treaty, saying in a paper that "ratification of the treaty would not infringe upon rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment."

The main reason the arms trade talks are taking place at all is that the United States - the world's biggest arms trader - reversed U.S. policy on the issue after President Barack Obama was first elected and decided in 2009 to support an arms treaty.
