    MEMBERS STATEMENT
    FIREARM ISSUE
    23 October 2018


    The leaked draft amendments to the Firearm Legislation have caused utter fury amongst the legal firearm owners of South Africa.
    Who in their right mind thought to remove self-defence, or protection of another person as valid reasons to have a firearm licence? Is it perhaps someone with a full phalanx of bodyguards?


    Is this person – or tiny group of foreign-resourced persons – in any way knowledgeable of the atrocities our citizens are suffering on the streets, in our homes, in our places of business? And this bunch of bureaucrats want to take away our right to self-defence?
    The number of private weapons that are stolen is a minute fraction of the thousands upon thousands of state-owned firearms that somehow disappear each year, are sold to criminals and end up shooting at us and our police.


    I have never heard of a single member of the SAPS who has allegedly ‘lost’ his or her firearm, being kicked out or arrested or criminally charged. Not one.
    But – every single time, without fail - that the crime statistics reach still higher levels – there are now 57 of us slaughtered each day – the eyes of the SAPS top structure in attempting to avoid the blame, target legal firearm owners.


    It absolutely infuriates me that this utter failure of a Firearm Control Act has been nothing but a costly administrative burden that leans on honest, law-abiding citizens.


    In 2004 it was finessed through Parliament in a manner not seen since National Party days, but as predicted it has failed to reduce gun deaths; is unworkable; overly complex; and has today put legal gun owners on the verge of being declared criminals.


    On the other hand the criminals continue to shoot their way to wealth.


    The Act disarmed thousands of law-abiding citizens and now you want to disarm the rest.


    I suggest you take these proposed Civilian Secretariat amendments and shove them…under the carpet where the rest of the ridiculous, failed ANC proposals go to die.
