USA, Cayman Islands: Travelling with ammo

Mad Bull discusses a Cayman Compass news article about an American couple who travelled from Detroit to Grand Cayman via Miami with an unlicensed handgun and ammunition in their luggage: “What is also interesting is the ’slap on the wrist’ that the man who brought the weapon in got! I mean, he has been charged with possession of an illegal firearm before, and now here he is with another one, and he was travelling with the weapon on airplanes to boot! A seven day jail sentence and a $3000 fine seems a bit light to me!
