The Bill in its entirety
I am a single woman with a young daughter. I obtained a firearm for sdefence purposes. This amendment to the Firearms Control Act denies me my right to protect my loved ones and myself. The Act infringes on my need for safety and security since the State has shown itself to be incapable in providing safety and security for its citizens.

In SA all citizens need a self defence weapon daily ask only but a few. Especially woman should be trained in self defence.

Police can not even protect themselves and have no concern for citizens of this country.
Criminals run rampant and police have no answer. By the time police have responded to a call the criminals have already killed and robbed you and have gone. If you don't look after yourself no one else will

The police are failing to protect our communities, it should be a right to stand a chance to fight if our lives are in danger.

With one of the highest crime rates in the world, and one the most corrupt police forces in the world, it is inconceivable that people can’t buy a gun for self defence.
Criminals will get guns anyway.
So please, don’t take self defence away from the innocent.

Rather ban unlicensed firearms and go after criminals and not innocent legal firearm holders. Every single legal South African should be trained and allowed to carry a licenced firearm like in Switzerland. Compare their crime rate to ours to see how effective this would be. Get rid of Beke Cele as he does not have a clue what he is doing.

I need to defend my own life, property and my loved one’s. If South Africa was a peaceful country with minimal crime, then I would support the bill - but the reality is that WE ARE NOT A PEACEFUL COUNTRY!
