Reading through the proposed amendments there appears to be no recognition or acceptance of the recommendations made Gambling Review Commission and Committee who investigates National Gambling legislation for the period 2009-2015

One has to ask why we even bother with these Commission and Reviews which come at great expense, if DTI does not act on or make use of these recommendations

Society needs protection from the social ills which are related to gambling. Left to their own accord private enterprises will maximise profit without much consideration of social consequences
Jonathan
Yes I do
Stricter controls against any sports involving dogs and other animals required.

Stronger laws and harsher sentences against dog fighting definitely required too.

When the State set-up the National Lottery some of the proceeds were supposed to go to Charities. What has happened to this money? Few benefitted. Corruption yet again. No, absolutely NO to total control without transparency from government!!! Looting continues and we are being regulated to death..... NO NO NO...... STOP regulating every aspect of our lives!!!!

Everything which affects the economy must be regulated especially if it affects animals too for an example, Horse racing.

Dog fighting is a definite no no, that one I fully support.

Moving premises from.nearby malls is a definite no no, unemployment rate is just too high and many poor South Africans survive out of that small payout and is easily accessable.

Moving to a regulator I agree because I am not even sure if they are audited and winnings that people are not aware of is the people being contacted. please refulate this one

BBBEE I fully support, why not and blacks must have entry into the market, and by blacks I dont mean Indinians. Also consider looking into changing that Indians and Chinese thing classified as blacks they are not.

I am interested in the welfare of the animals used in this industry. During their working life and their retirement, as well as humane breeding practices. If I had my way no animals would ever be allowed to be a part of this industry so I welcome the prohibiting of dog racing. For that reason I will go along with the rest.

I agree with Lilian: I do not believe in any horse and dog racing/fighting or anything similar like circuses etc.
Putting the gambling activities under one body would be disastrous. We already have more than enough corruption in this country.
Do away with the "hidden entrance" gambling entities.

Gambling is not only for the rich and more targeted at the "uninformed" and poorer person in South Africa.

Legalisation makes it possibke to make up rules and regulations for the safity of the greyhounds during racers, but also about the way they are kept and bred.
Desmond

I enjoy my hounds, and cannot understand how the government can allow horse racing, pigeon racing and discriminate against dogs.

Many people are poverty-sricken because of these gambling kind of things as the biggest percentage of them are now addicted to these games. Because they keep hoping that they will someday win, some have gone too far to recover their loses such as assets e.g. houses and furniture; cars etc.

The Goverment just wants to rule everything. By giving them more power we will not be a free country. Everything they regulate is jus a means of stealing nore

I SUPPORT GREYHOUND RACING FULLY!!! SPCA are ABUSING the racing greyhounds by not legalizing dog racing in SA!! Greyhounds can generate MILLIONS of rands for SA, by this ALOT OF JOBS can be created and inspectors can be paid to MAKE SURE THE DOGS ARE PROPERLY TAKEN CARE OFF and inspect every racing kennel in SA. If racing is legal in SA, there WILL BE RULES AND REGULATIONS, with rules and regulations you can protect a certain breed, CURRENTLY THERES NO RULES AND NO REGULATIONS!!!! HOW CAN YOU protect ANY ANIMAL WITHOUT rules and regulations and WITHOUT MONEY????????????????

The racing greyhound is a royal breed that deserves ONLY THE BEST! They have been bred for hundreds of years to chase a piece of cotton or a hare. They can generate MILLIONS but if they are not legelized, they can not generate money and the end result is that, without money they can NOT BE TAKEN CARE OFF AS THEY SHOULD!! These dogs are now being used to hunt with in the field, and they die in their thousands per year because of falling off clifs, breaking their necks, running into dongas, ect. just by trying to kill some of us INDANGERED SPECIES like the oribi, steenbuck and Duiker!! These dogs NEEDS TO RUN ON A TRACK that is save and secured, where there is vets to make sure they are in tip top condition before running!!

STOP ABUSING THIS AMAZING ANIMAL CALLED THE RACING GREYHOUND!!
STOP DISCRIMINATING, STOP APARTHEID LAWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Edward

It should be a continuos improvement
Sharon
No I do not
I don't think the government has the right to take my rights away from me to say how I can spend my money or my free time . If you want to make a law against gambling , then there must be the one again alcohol, rape, drugs, goverment spending, striking to name a few!!!!
June
Yes I do
I do not like dog fighting
Warren
Yes I do
All gambling should be banned...
1) It is a form of addiction
2) the chances of winning are minute and so the poor become poorer as they put their hope in a system that is against them rather than saving that money
