Gun licence case adjourned again

The High Court this afternoon gave the green light for legal representation in a class action suit brought against Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith by a group from the sport shooting fraternity.

However, the matter which relates to Griffith’s decision not to renew licences of those involved in sport shooting and to place restrictions and conditions on the licences, was not heard when the parties appeared in court. Instead it was adjourned until April 20.

The sport shooters are asking the court for an injunction to stop the Acting Commissioner from making any further decisions of a similar nature until the substantive case is determined.

    I do hope this get “frustrate”in the Court untill another 50 years . Too many GUNS in Barbados , Legal and Illigal . RBPF must launch a serious investigation on where the bullets are making its way into the streets .

      seems like Alex Alleyne have an axe to grind with the Olympic and commonwealth marksman and ladies of Barbados.
      Shooting is still recognized worldwide and Barbados should not be deprive of this age old sport.

      Have you every seen or heard any licensed firearm hold involved in a gas station hold up…..a bank robbery……..a home invasion……..shooting at the police or soldiers………

      We are above board and always assist the law… guidelines and training. Opening our ranges for them to learn to shoot. Any day of the week you can find police officers at the Waterford range (BRPF) learning to shoot.
