Gun control: MEPs clarify licensing rules and safeguards

IMCO Justice and home affairs / Free movement of goods13-07-2016 - 18:00

EU countries will have to introduce stronger controls on “blank-firing” guns, to prevent them being converted to fire live ammunition, under Internal Market Committee amendments, voted on Wednesday, to a draft update of the EU firearms directive. The changes approved by MEPs ensure that any firearm which has been converted to firing blanks continues to be covered by EU gun control rules. This closes a legal loophole which became evident in the aftermath of last year’s terrorist attacks in Paris. (Read more: Gun control: MEPs clarify licensing rules and safeguards )

Plans to strengthen the EU’s visa suspension mechanism, which enables it to temporarily reintroduce visa requirements for third-country nationals in the event of sudden surges in irregular immigration, unfounded asylum applications or a failure to cooperate with the EU on “readmissions” (i.e. returns), were amended and approved by Civil Liberties Committee MEPs on Thursday. MEPs widened the range of grounds upon which a visa waiver may be suspended. (Read more: Civil liberties MEPs back plans to make it easier to suspend visa waivers )

The EU Commission will assess which countries should be included, removed or temporarily suspended from the list.
