[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Guyana Police Force is informing the general public of the circulation of a number of forged firearm approvals.

A press statement from the police force on October 23, noted that in order to prevent being a victim of this scam, members of the public are advised that no money is required for the processing of firearm applications and that the procedure on the results of their application is via a mail through the post office.

Upon assuming office in May 2015, Minister of Public Security, Khemraj Ramjattan had said that he will be reviewing the criteria for firearms licenses and could possibly make changes or even create new criteria.

“I have put all license matters, that are on my desk on hold, until we work out with the Firearms Advisory Board, which I have not as yet met, what are the criteria, the existing ones, and what will be the criteria that I will want…I know a couple of the criteria already, but I think I will want to tweak it a little differently,” the Minister had said.
