Firearms & Explosives

A threat to the safety of citizens in any country, firearms also pose a wider threat to security, peace, stability and development. Firearms are easy to conceal and transport, and offer lucrative profits to criminals trafficking in illicit small arms and light weapons. No country is unaffected by firearms violence.

Each year firearms are used in more than 245,000 homicides worldwide (excluding war-torn countries). This statistic, however, is only a small percentage of all crimes committed with firearms, which are widely used to threaten and support other criminal acts.

To support police officers responsible for investigating firearms-related crimes, INTERPOL offers three powerful tools which can help member countries obtain firearms intelligence using the information on the outside of the firearms and the data that can be gleaned from inside the weapon to prevent and solve crime.

The three tools are:

* the INTERPOL Firearms Tracing System (formerly known as IWeTS),
* the INTERPOL Firearms Reference Table (IFRT) and
* the INTERPOL Ballistic Information Network (IBIN).

In addition, the Orange Notice is a tool used to warn police, public entities and other international organizations about potential threats posed by disguised weapons, parcel bombs, other dangerous materials, and when dangerous criminals have escaped police custody.

The Orange Notice provides a warning about weapons when there is reason to believe that it will help law enforcement and security officials identify a threat they may not detect under normal circumstances.

Finally, an Orange Notice may also be used to provide law enforcement and security officials with critical information about radiological, chemical and biological threats.

That first paragrapgh could have been something right out of Gun Control Australia's manifesto...

The LE/Military of the following Nations are the only ones who do not know that we are licensed gun owners and do not know where we live. Any Nation not listed....DOES. Shall sleep well tonight
