The passing of the Firearms (Amendment) Bill- Trinidad & Tobago

Charles & Associates (Trinidad and Tobago): The third reading and  subsequent passing of the Firearms (Amendment) Bill took place in  Parliament on Monday 9th September 2019. The Act seeks to amend the  Firearms Act, Chap. 16.01 by adding 28 clauses. The effect of the  passing of the bill is such that there will be greater  sanctions/penalties for persons found being in possession of illegal  firearms. The bill is one of many initiatives towards fighting crime and  or bringing about a reduction in crime,  which has been at an all time high in the Republic recently. Persons  are encouraged to review the bill, to get an appreciation of its  contents. For example, third time offenders risk spending the balance of  their natural life in prison. Offences such as trafficking in firearms  and prohibited weapons were also introduced. We encourage all to take a  look at the bill, which is cited as the Firearms (Amendment) Bill, 2019.
