Unlike past Commissioners of Police, Gary Griffith is not afraid or hesitant to provide T&T citizens with a Firearm User License (FUL) so they can protect themselves. In fact, he is working hard on sorting through over 15,000 FUL applications that are currently backlogged.
Griffith made these statements at a recent meeting at the Office of Chaguanas East MP, Fazal Karim while addressing concerns raised by both members of the public and the business community. Griffith went on to apologize for the backlog of FUL applications and also said that based on statistics, only a very small percentage of FUL holders actually commit any crime with their weapon.
See some of Griffith’s statements from the meeting below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
I do apologise for what has happened over the past few years. Requests would have been made and not even the common courtesy was given to you all of a response. I am trying to clean up a backlog of over 15,000 applications. I am dealing with it and again, each one I have to put my signature about 12 different places. It takes a while but I’m cleaning it up.
