By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Monday, Prime Minister of The Bahamas, Philip Davis said that the United States needs to do more to control the smuggling of weapons into their country.
Authorities in The Bahamas have reported a spike in cases of gun violence. In March, 22 people were murdered in the country, in one of the highest monthly records mostly attributed to drug disputes. Police have seized more than 170 guns this year in The Bahamas.
Reuters report that more than 90% of the weapons used in crimes can be traced back to American manufacturers and gun shops.
“We are saying to the Americans that they need to do more. Whereas we don’t want to get involved in their domestic issue of the right to bear arms, we are concerned that purchasers of guns are not just buying it to bear but rather to export and to traffic,” PM Davis asserted.
The Prime Minister affirmed that he had shared those concerns with officials in the United States.
