Police Commissioner Gary Griffith has assured members of the Chaguanas East electoral district that he is working assiduously to clear the backlog of Firearm User Licenses (FULs). And he is also making it clear that he is not averse to granting citizens gun licenses once they qualify for them.
Griffith made the promise during a meeting at the office of Chaguanas East MP Fazal Karim, where several members of the public and business community raised concerns over the police’s tardiness in granting them gun licenses.
Police Commissioner Gary Griffith has criticised members of the media and "social media experts" who he says have been unfair to him.
