    "Most illegal guns used in criminal activities were once legally owned. Legal guns become illegal when they are lost or stolen. The biggest source of illegal guns in SA is loss and theft from civilian gun owners"

    They still singing this tune? Eish.

    It's a misdirection.

    The truth is that at some point all guns, except homemade zip guns, were legally owned. It may have been at the point of manufacture or anywhere up to where their ownership (and not the article itself) became unlawful.

    It's like saying that 100% of stolen cars used in cash in transit robberies or 100% of penises involved in rape were once used and owned lawfully.

    It's a twee little soundbite but nothing more than that.

    The only common element that stands up to logical scrutiny is use by criminals. It is this criminal use that should be criminalised. Not even loss should be criminalised. In a law abiding society one should be entitled to expect one's lost property to be returned.

    If you think that the "journalists" are going to meaningfully react to your commentary or pointing out the problem with your facts vs their feelings favorable, you have another thing coming.

    The media is no longer about facts. It's about feelings - feelings get clicks, views, and likes. That is what counts.

    But I know one thing that never dies,
