Shooters on target


Share post:

SPORT SHOOTERS have hit the bullseye in the first round of their fight with Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith.

On Wednesday High Court Judge William Chandler granted an injunction that prevents Griffith from refusing to renew the gun licences of sport shooters other than on grounds set out in Section 15 of the Firearms Act.

That order, the judge ruled, will remain in place until the substantive class action suit brought by the shooting fraternity is heard.

In seeking an urgent hearing and ruling from the court, attorney Wilfred Abrahams, acting on behalf of client Bernard Chase, charged that the police had refused to renew and expressed an intention to revoke firearm licences classified as sporting and those endorsed as “For Use of Target Shooting Only”.
