It is an undisputed fact that the private security industry is employed in the majority by white businesses or private individuals. Most LICENSED firearms are owned by white individuals , and by introducing stringent regulations relating to owning or using a licensed firearm some years ago, and by this latest attempt to restrict and to a large extent disarm the private security industry, it is once again clear that the government has little or no regard for the safety and security of whites or their businesses. This is further evidenced by the blatant neglect and disregard of the plight of white farmers in this country.

While crime levels are completely out of control and government cannot protect it's citizens, there should be no restrictions on private security companies and individuals to protect themselves.

The government doesn't have the capacity to deal with crime and to protect the citizens of RSA and as a result, there is a need for private security and fire arms so that we are able to protect ourselves.

It just does not makes sense. I call private security, NOT police, when I need help. The times I called the police, they did not respond in an acceptable time. The private security I use is onsite in 5minutes, and they get along with the police. Do not minimize their powers!

As the SAPS is not able to prtect RSA citizens private companies need to safe guard our citizens
