Barbados Helping US To Trace Illegal Guns

Ten regional countries will sign an agreement with the United States to make the tracing of illegal weapons easier.

The Memorandum of Understanding which will be signed between the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and regional governments will provide for the electronic tracing of illicit firearms under a system called eTRACE.

The signing is part of an ongoing effort to combat firearms trafficking in the region consistent with the joint December 2007 CARICOM-US Initiative on Combating the Illicit Trafficking in Small Arms and Light Weapons and Ammunition.

The signatories to the agreement are Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Aruba, Curacao and Anguilla.
