BELGIUM: March 6, 2006


BRUSSELS - The European Commission on Friday proposed stricter rules to control the sale of firearms including a requirement that records be kept for 10 years on all arms sold.


The proposal concerns civilian arms, essentially for hunting or sports.
The European Union adopted legislation in 1991 on the control of the purchase and possession of weapons, but amendments are necessary to keep the EU in line with a United Nations protocol, the EU executive said in a statement.

"The tracing of firearms is vital in the fight against organised crime," said EU Enterprise and Industry Commissioner Guenter Verheugen.

Under current legislation, dealers must keep information on all firearms bought or sold for 5 years, including the type, make, model, calibre, serial number, and the names and addresses of the supplier and the purchaser.

The EU executive wants to extend the obligation to 10 years. Each country would be free to decide whether dealers or authorities would be responsible for keeping the records, an EU official said.

The proposal also aims to tighten existing obligations to mark arms at production, and to make sure the appropriate penalties are applied, the EU executive said.

The proposal must be approved both by EU ministers and the European Parliament.

Control.

Remember, this is the group that says "You will vote on our constitution. And you will continue to vote until you say 'yes'".

Well, since muslim immigration is going to destroy their societies within 20 years anyway, I say who cares. Once Europe collapses into chaos these laws won't mean much of anything anyway.
