The lawsuit by gun owners against Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin just got bigger.
Licensed owners of firearms have now pooled together to file a class action lawsuit against the country’s top cop in an effort to prevent him from forcing them to pay a separate fee for additional barrels which they use during shooting competitions.
President of the Barbados Rifle and Pistol Federation, Antonio “Boo” Rudder, has also joined the legal suit.
Hearing of the initial injunction, filed last week by just two firearm owners – Gladstone Carrington and Robert Ross – was adjourned in the No. 12 Supreme Court last Friday because the Solicitor General’s office was not in a position to proceed with the matter.
It is now set to be heard by Justice Jacqueline Cornelius on Thursday at 10 a.m. The injunction seeks to prevent Dottin from forcing gun owners to pay $200 per barrel for their special conversion firearms.Please read the full story in today’s SUNDAY SUN, or in the eNATION edition.
