Jamaica (Mckoy’s News) – Pass Literacy Exam to get Firearm: Licensed firearm holders with challenges in literacy may not have their firearm licenses renewed.
This is the word from newly appointed CEO of the Firearm Licensing Authority, the FLA Shane Dalling.
Mr Dalling says if persons intent to renew their licenses, they must pass the test given to test their literacy standard.
He says based on checks, licensed firearm holders once had to demonstrate being literate and he believes the practice is still necessary.
He views this as part of an overall process of re-organization for the FLA to ensure that licensed holders are fit and proper to be carrying firearms legally.
