These pirates are really getting out of hand, glad to see some getting served!, most of the upper east coast of Africa is no longer safe for private vessels, it's about time we start a business trade from them? Sell hunting safaris where you go on holiday hunting pirates! I'd pay for that

The problem is the legality of pulling into multiple foreign ports in a foreign flagged vessel with weapons on board. Even foreign business isn't exempt to the firearms laws of the indivudual countries where they make port. Obviously loosing ones ship, cargo and crew life is worth the risk, but it makes for a tricky paradox.

I know it's a hard ask but we need to implement a world piracy code/act, one that allows engagement of un notified vessels within "x" meters and the storage of fully automatic weapons on board, quite simply the port pilot could lock the gun locker with his lock and not unlock it again until they leave port. Something needs to be done about it, that or have the us marines take up some target practice
