Government is introducing a one week gun amnesty from April 7 as the authorities seek to get firearms off the streets.
Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs Dale Marshall announced that members of the public would have until midnight on April 13 to turn their guns, ammunition and firearm parts into any police station.
Speaking in the House of Assembly during the debate on The Bail (Amendment) Bill, 2019, the St Joseph MP said after the conclusion of the amnesty, the first since 1998, he would report its outcome to Barbadians.
He also urged firearm offenders not to test Government’s resolve to win the “fight” against gun crime. (SC)
