‘Stop, Drop and Go’ finished, but isn’t over yet

PHILIPSBURG:--- Last week, in the late afternoon, an elderly man came to the Attorney General's Office in Simpson Bay to surrender his guns. The weapons were wrapped in a local newspaper in which the honorable Dennis Richardson was mentioned as being Lt. Governor of the island territory St. Maarten. It was a newspaper from 1998... Time flies. It also did for the 'Stop, Drop and Go' project. After four weeks the project was finalized with this elderly man surrendering his weapons. Some people say that the 'Stop, Drop and Go' project hasn't been a success, because the real criminals didn't come in to hand over their guns. Look on the brighter side: every gun off the street is one less gun that can cause harm in the hands of the wrong people, therefore every gun off the streets makes a safer country for all of us.
