Government Supports Audit of Gun Registry Following License Controversy

While the government had decided to commission a board to oversee the application and approval of licenses, the question remains as to how Borja was able to obtain that many gun licenses. Minister of Public Service and Constitutional Reform, Henry Usher, says he was surprised when he heard the news and explained that he also supports an audit of the gun registry. 

Henry Charles Usher, Minister of Public Service: “Very shocking, why does somebody have so many licenses? But it is allowed. You have gun collectors and you can certainly apply for license that way. But yeah, it begs the question why so many? I don’t know if it was normal practice, but certainly it is not an illegal practice. I mean the vetting process is one done by the Commissioner. Now it’s going to be done by a committee, by a firearms committee, and we hope that it is – these types of issues get ventilated more whether somebody should have more than one license or not. But there are gun collectors, there are persons who want to have different licenses and I can’t, you know, it’s not for me but certainly I can’t say anything about them wanting to have more than one license.”

Reporter: Would you support an audit of the gun registry? 

Henry Charles Usher, Minister of Public Service: “I support an audit in all departments including that registry.”
