Compol Williams says That Victor L Bryant’s Gun Dealer License is under Review

As a safety precaution, ComPol Williams also told the media that the police department has taken possession of the remaining stock of firearms and ammunition at Victor L. Bryant and Company. Williams says that the company’s license to import and sell firearms is being reviewed and the owner of the company is being given the opportunity to provide legitimate reasons as to why the company’s license should not be revoked.

Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“When you are a license firearm holder, you have a heavy responsibility in ensuring that your firearm is not lost or stolen or used by any unauthorized persons in the commission of any act. When you are a firearm dealer, that responsibility is multiplied ten-fold. From what I saw on the scene this morning, the structure that houses Victor L Bryant gun dealer is not suitable. The law is that you must have a safe place, basically a strong house to be able to store firearms, especially firearms of the magnitude that Victor L Bryant had. The fact that the building is just a zinc building and the main entrance door is practically made of plywood, surely the building is not conducive for firearms to be kept and as a result of that, I directed Mr. Ramirez to do proper inspection and we have taken into our custody all firearms that were being kept at Victor L Bryant, so those firearms are now in the custody of the police. So, I have asked Mr. Ramirez to prepare for me his inspection report and based on that I will be writing Mr. Gallaty to show reasons why his gun dealer license should not be revoked and if satisfactory reasons should not be given then his gun dealer license will be revoked. We cannot have people who are supposed to be responsible doing things that will create havoc within our society.  The manner in which the firearms were kept within the building is totally inappropriate to say the least and for us that is of serious concern.”
