Central American governments will create firearms database

A firearms information exchange system is being created in Central America. Government officials met in Panama City on 6-7 April for the first of a series of meeting in this regional initiative. A first step will be creating a database with information on arms production, exports, imports and destructions that can be used by all the countries in the region. The process is being coordinated by the Central American Small Arms Control Programme (CASAC). More.
