gunshotThe Ghana Commission on Small Arms is to initiate a project to identify all guns in the country, beginning from March 2013.

The project, which will be implemented with the support of the European Union, will start with the guns of the Ghana Armed Forces and the other security agencies.

In an interview, the Executive Secretary of the Commission, Mr Jones Borteye Applerh, said all arms in use by service personnel would thus be marked.

The initiative is to commence a system for the better management and administration of arms in the country.

This means all guns will bear a unique identification to them easy to track.

The exercise will subsequently be extended to cover the identifications of guns in the hands of civilians.

Already, the Commission, in its efforts at gun control, is computerising its data on arms in the country.
