    This is merely 'the tip of the iceberg.' A thorough investigation should net more criminals.

    Singapore carries harsh punishment including caning and capital punishment despite outcry by international bodies. The city-state has one of the lowest violent crime rates and highest standards of living in the world. Any relation? you decide!

    Just a suggestion: - If we have such innovative people although doing things illegally (with out license), why dont we legalize the industry and make arms for the world market, and also for ourselves with out having to buy them losing foreign exchange. I have noticed that we have a few such innovative guys who have got caught in the past. Why let them decay in prison. Make use of their skill properly monitored.

    Why raid????Encourage them with expertise training.
    We will be in par with other foreign competitors.

    Why not make these arms & ammunition for export? It will be a money spinner - as many developed countries are fighting terrorism still.
