There are at least five hundred million rifles, pistols and other SALW [small arms and light weapons] in circulation in the world and they kill approximately 500,000 people per year in armed conflicts and criminal activities…

Between 2001 and 2003 Serbia collected around 15,000 SALW. Since 2003 more than 88,000 weapons have been destroyed, but since then progress has, regrettably, had little effective movement on SALW control issues, according to the report of SEESAC.

According to this report, since 2003 more than 7,000 weapons and half a million rounds of ammunition have been destroyed in Montenegro.
