Press conference by Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC, on the communication containing suggestions on how to reduce gun violence in Europe, and the results of a Eurobarometer survey on the subject

Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, gave a press conference to present a communication containing suggestions on how to reduce gun violence in Europe. The European Commission identified four priorities under which several concrete actions are considered: safeguarding the licit market for civilian firearms, legal to illegal: reducing diversion of firearms into criminal hands, increasing pressure on criminal markets and building a better intelligence picture.
On the same occasion, the Commission published the results of a Eurobarometer survey showing that six in ten Europeans actually believe that the level of crime involving firearms is likely to increase over the next five years; it also showed that overall 55 percent of Europeans want stricter regulation on who is allowed to own, buy or sell firearms.
