    Default brito instructs prosecutors to ask for preventive prison for owners of illegal guns

    the title says it all. attorney general instructed prosecutors to request preventive prison for those caught with illegally owned guns:

    his reasoning is that illegal arms are widely used to commit crimes and they are also often obtained by the means of crime as well.

    do what Jamaica did in the 70s. build a prison specifically for people caught with illegal firearms. it had its own Court system, which meant you were tried immediately..no waiting and dicking around. no sentence..indefinite incarceration. you went in, but had no idea when, or if, you were getting out.

    What's the current penalty? I've heard it's pretty harsh, especially for foreigners, a fine of up to US$10,000 was once banded around.

    DR. As a responsible firearm owner who goes through the dick-dance every year to renew, I'm just curious as to what that the current penalty would be if I didn't bother.

    Well to get one legally will cost you about USD$6k plus yearly fees, so it's no wonder so many foreigners opt out and go illegal.
