A license is required to possess, transport, or carry a firearm. A purchase coupon is issued to a license applicant when the application is approved. The weapon purchased is brought in to the firearms unit of the Virgin Islands Police Department. Information about the weapon is recorded and listed on the license issued to the applicant.

Apparently there are different levels of permits.

i had to throw my cheap .02 cents in on the thread title, my answer; the ability to swim to the mainland, buy a gun, and swim back with it?
