Questions and answers to Cecilia Malmström on how to reduce gun related violence through stronger EU action

73 views

On 21 October 2013, Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, presented a Communication containing suggestions on how to reduce gun violence in Europe. It aims to identify actions at EU level, through legislation, operational activities, training and EU funding, to address the threats posed by the illegal use of firearms. The Commission identified four priorities under which several concrete actions are considered: increasing pressure on criminal markets; safeguarding the licit market for civilian firearms; reducing diversion of firearms into criminal hands; and building better intelligence. The actions put forward in the Communication will facilitate both legal trade in the internal market and law enforcement cooperation in identifying and disrupting organised criminal groups.This video shows an extract of the questions/answers session on the challenges of the new technologies.
