My wife was showing me a snippit on Facebook from VI Free Press saying that the VIPD Firearms bureau that handles gun permits is shutting down indefinitely.  Havent seen this anywhere else, has anyone heard about this or seen a article ?

Link to the VI Police website's news states it is a temporary - though indefinite - closing.

I guess that means only the criminals can obtain guns for the foreseeable future.

Of course, illegal guns are plentiful and easy to find if a responsible law abiding citizen needs one.

I lived on St Croix for almost 6 years. I had a 38 Smith & Wesson that I had brought from the states. I never registered it  for the EXACT same reason stxsailor mentioned. I knew 3 people who registered their firearms with the VIPD & all had their homes broken into within several months. I gave my gun to a friend when I left island & told them do not let the police know you have it.

Maybe they don't want the citizenry to be armed. That may stop the VIPD friends and family who are doing the crimes since there would be more risk of them getting shot entering someones home or business. Now that's funny!

Good afternoon!

IF I don't register my guns and have "an issue", while protecting myself. What fresh Hell would I encounter?

I would think if an intruder broke into your residence & you had no choice except to use armed force to stop the burglar, self defense  precludes everything else.
