In accordance with a proposed draft amendment bill no person will in future be able to buy/own a firearm for self defence.

Citizens must, within the framework of the law, be able to protect themselves and their families against criminals. This draft amendment in its current format will result in citizens being left defenceless in a country where the South African Police Service already openly admitted that they do not have the ability to protect citizens against a wave of crime.

The proposed amendments are irrational and reckless especially since this draft takes away the ability of citizens to possess a firearm for self defence purposes. Furthermore it appears that sport shooters and hunters will also come off second best with the proposed amendments.
