“Vuurwapens zijn nu vaak bijvangst bij andere criminele onderzoeken zoals drugstrafiek of zelfs terrorisme. Als we meer aandacht hebben voor die vuurwapens & hoe die in handen kwamen van die daders, hebben we veel informatie die kan helpen om die fenomenen te bestrijden” @NDuquet

Alarmwapens worden steeds populairder en worden vaak ook omgebouwd tot vuurwapens. Zowel criminelen als burgers kopen ze, onder meer op het internet. @NDuquet geeft duiding bij deze evolutie op @VTMNIEUWS van 19u.

Belgian police wants to step up its efforts to combat Flobert & easy-to-convert blank firing guns. More info on the proliferation of these guns in Belgium (https://t.co/pFfQFkhokl) & the rest of EU (https://t.co/P3AQNremNh p92-95, 103-104) in @projectSAFTE https://t.co/ehtRsZeXa2

Looking forward to discuss the future of EU arms export controls at the annual COARM-NGO conference organised by @Saferworld and @eu_eeas
