Food for thought,

STT & STJ has no gun range or gun clubs making it illegal for anyone other than law enforcement officials to possess a firearm.

STX is the only island where residents other than law enforcement officers are legally allowed to possess firearms.

Anyone have any solid statistics on gun related crime on STT/STJ vs. STX?

This part kills me:
Here in the Virgin Islands we are very strict on firearms and ammunition.

It kills me because there are so many illegal firearms here.

"Here in the Virgin Islands we are very strict on firearms and ammunition."

for those who are not family and friends of government officials and VIPD is what I think they mean to say.

These are the licensing classifications:

Pink – law enforcement officers for off-duty and personal protection only.

Blue – business and/or personal protection

Green - target shooting, sports use and home protection
(With the target shooting license you must be a member of a gun club. The firearm must be unloaded when travelling to and from the range using the most direct route. The shooting range is on the St. Croix district only. Currently St. Thomas does not have a shooting range. Therefore no target shooting licenses are being issued in that district.

Yellow - home protection only (handguns e.g. pistol/revolver) *For use ONLY at the residential address that is typed on the license*

Grey - farming ( long guns e.g. – rifles/shotguns)
(This license can also be used for boat and home protection)
———————————————————-
Can’t imagine very many Yellows & Greys issued on STT/STJ
