Fordern Waffenverbotszonen für Asylheime zur Sicherheit – Landbauer

St. Pölten / Traiskirchen – Udo Landbauer, Deputy State Governor of Lower Austria and FPÖ State Party Leader, has called for weapon-free zones in asylum centers in light of the recent knife attack in the Traiskirchen Reception Center East. Landbauer believes that this measure would give the police a strong tool to intervene preventively, control, and punish any violations. He emphasized that each knife that is taken away in time reduces the risk. Landbauer criticized Interior Minister Gerhard Karner for his inaction in dealing with similar incidents. He believes that weapon-free zones „in and around“ asylum centers would enhance security and allow for a more resolute approach against potential asylum offenders.

The recent attack in the Traiskirchen asylum center, where a 22-year-old Moroccan allegedly attacked a 24-year-old Libyan citizen, is just one of many cases that occur on a daily basis, according to Landbauer. The Federal Agency for Care and Support Services (BBU GmbH) responded by stating that the possession and carrying of weapons is already prohibited in all facilities. The house rules state that residents and visitors are prohibited from carrying or possessing „blunt, sharp, or firearms or objects that can be used as weapons“ for security reasons.

The call for weapon-free zones comes in the wake of concerns about the safety and security in asylum centers. This measure aims to prevent potentially dangerous situations and safeguard the well-being of both residents and staff. By creating designated areas where weapons are strictly prohibited, authorities hope to demonstrate their commitment to maintaining a secure environment.

The implementation of weapon-free zones will require coordination between local authorities, asylum center management, and law enforcement agencies. Clear guidelines and procedures will need to be established to ensure the effectiveness of these zones. Regular inspections and enforcement of the rules will be crucial to maintaining the desired level of security.

While weapon-free zones can contribute to improving safety, it is important to remember that they are just one part of a comprehensive security strategy. Other measures, such as increased surveillance, enhanced training for staff, and improved communication channels, should also be implemented to address the specific challenges faced by asylum centers.

Overall, the call for weapon-free zones in asylum centers reflects growing concerns about security and the need for preventive measures. It remains to be seen how this proposal will be received and whether it will be implemented as a viable solution to addressing safety concerns in these facilities. Asylum centers play a significant role in providing temporary shelter for individuals seeking protection, and it is crucial that these spaces are secure and conducive to the well-being of all those residing within them.
