Apparently there is a lot of interest in this area of law from parents, children, and adult air rifle enthusiasts. Generally, when we are talking about the purchase of firearms, we would have both federal and state law to contend with.
I will send you an account of my Trinidad visit within the next few days.
This letter deals only with British Guiana. During my week in the Colony, I was able to do a certain amount of travelling I visited the Torani Canal and the Corentyne drainage and irrigation project ; and I had lengthy discussions with Savage, the principal officials, the State Council, the Ministers and various leading citizens.
I do not suppose that I can add much to the information about the local situation already in your possession, but you may like to know what general impressions I formed from my various talks. The situation is unquestionably most disquieting; indeed, by the time you receive this letter a crisis may already have been precipitated by the general strike in the sugar industry which the P.
As things were at the time of my visit, I formed the opinion that the senior officials are completely disheartened and pessimistic; that the public service is approaching demoralisation; that the business and commercial community are embittered and frightened; and that there is grave anxiety among responsible and fair-minded people like the Anglican Archbishop.
I was told that all private investment has ceased; there is, for instance, unemployment in the building industry because virtually all private building has stopped. As you no doubt know, a run has started on the Government Savings Bank.
How has this situation arisen? At any rate the P. It was to be expected that their initial months of office would, in these circumstances, be a period of confusion and dislocation. I think that most of the leading officials and unofficials though not all were genuinely prepared to help the Ministers to fulfil their new responsibilities.
Four months later, I was unable to find anyone, apart perhaps from Savage himself, who now believes that the P. No one, of course, has anything to judge by except the speeches and isolated actions of individual Ministers; they have not so far disclosed their long-term policy at all in relation, for instance, to a future development programme or the coming budget.
In the meantime, however, the general behaviour of Ministers sufficiently explains the growing state of demoralisation I have described. I gained the impression that, whatever their longer-term objectives, the Ministers are united in an immediate determination to extend the power of the P.
By the creation and multiplication of cells, they are ceaselessly extending and elaborating the party organisation, in even the remotest part of the country.
They are working to secure a monopoly of representation for the trade unions they control. They are wooing the political support of the lower-paid public servants by encouraging them to be disloyal to their seniors.
There are already signs that they plan to abolish the dual control of the schools; many of the teachers are P. They are building up their own Youth Movement, and are openly hostile to such competing organisations as the Y.
It is natural to seek the source of the inspiration behind so effective a political movement, and I suspect that it is supplied by Janet Jagan. Whether or not she is a member of the Communist Party, she is thoroughly trained in Communist tactics and is, in addition, an exceptionable able, ruthless and energetic woman.
I understand that she is not now on particularly good terms with her husband, and that her principal ally in the ministerial group is Sydney King, whom everyone agrees to be the most extreme, intractable and offensive of all the Ministers.
It is at present no more than a matter for speculation how far the Ministers are united in either their long-term objectives or their short-term tactics.
So far they have managed to maintain a monolithic unity; party discipline is strict and Ministers have formed themselves into an unofficial Council which decides ahead what policy to adopt on all matters coming before the Executive Council. Ashton Chase may be one. Jagan himself is, I think, a rather enigmatic figure; superficially, he is the most intelligent, and certainly the most agreeable and courteous, of the group.
In private talks, he gives the impression of having a reasonable and not particular doctrinaire approach to problems, and I suppose that he may be a weak man driven to more extreme courses than he really likes. There were early hopes that Burnham would prove a moderating influence but he, like King, the other West Indian among the Ministershas suffered affronts in England that have made him bitterly anti-while and anti-British.
Lachhmansingh and Jainarine Singh seem likely to follow the stronger elements in the group.
The position of the civil service is most unhappy. Ministers are conducting a campaign against overseas officials, and the British heads of departments and senior officials in particular have had to endure treatment that makes their position virtually intolerable.
Ministers clearly aim at getting rid of them as quickly as possible, and there are signs that they will them turn their attention to purging the civil service of those who are not politically acceptable to them. All this makes a depressing picture.
I think, however, that it is important to remember that there is another side to it. Unquestionably there is plenty of material in British Guiana which provides grist for the P. Savage told me that he is often in sympathy with his Ministers in their desire to make this or that reform, though not with their methods of doing it.
In general, local employers have remained old-fashioned in their approach to labour problems; they have done much to improve the conditions of labour but much remains to be done. Some of the housing on the estates, for instance, is very bad indeed. I said above that I thought that the majority of officials and unofficials have originally tried to co-operate with and help the new Ministers.
Undoubtedly, however, there has always been a minority of both classes that has made no attempt to do so, and their attitude has served to emphasise the isolation of the Ministers and to strengthen the hands of the extreme elements among them.
It is obvious that in these conditions an enormous burden of responsibility rests on Savage himself.Features Who Are the Oath Keepers? Painted as radicals and racists by some, this organization of law enforcement officers and military vets says its only purpose is to uphold the Constitution.
