Barbadians?seem to have a love affair with firearms, based on the level of applications for gun licences.
So said Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin yesterday after witnessing the destruction of weapons and ammunition at Central Police Station.
The machine that destroyed them was donated by the United Nations Regional Centre for Peace, Disarmament and Development in Latin America and the Caribbean (UNLIREC) following an agreement signed between Government and the United Nations in relation to the management of stockpiles of small arms and weapons.
Though not able to give a number, Dottin said: “There are several applications that are made for firearms in this country. Sometimes, I believe that Barbadians have a love affair with firearms. It is a hot item.”
