  1. Supposing children use the gun for armed robbery?Guns are registered with Police because individuals are not allowed to own gund wantonly like other Countries for peace and security

  2. Why do you attack Police who are doing their job?You call them all sorts of names that they are thieves why not take them to court.Do you want to be Police men? Never belittle our security people unless you are lawbreakers.

  9. Was the gun licensed by the late husband & expiry date wasn’t yet the time it was found in possession of the widow?If,yes,it must be taken of course as part of the husband’s left worthy and deserve to be in the house together with her.Otherwise,if non of the two,the thing we generally know has restrictions since it’s a lethal weapon.

  10. Husband and wife r one body. Anything that belongs to the husband also belongs to the wife. Since the husband died,the gun automatically belonged to the wife. No case,stupid police.

    • Dozidozi, possibly she thought like just the way one inherits a hoe. This shows how deep rooted ignorance is in our society. Requires massive civic education by relevant authorities regarding disposal of such deadly weapons when the licenced owner is dead.
