The draft amendment regulations in terms of the private security industry tegulations act will decrease the safety of ordinary citizens, and fuel the hunger of criminals.

Security personnel and private persons must be able to defend themselves. So many criminals have guns and semi automatic guns. Concentrate on disarming them.

Government is making no attempt to disarm criminals, but is putting in a concerted effort to disarm law abiding citizens, including those who would deter criminals by being properly armed

This draft amendment is even further the resort of the private person and security company to be resistant against the increasingly armed onslaught of the criminal element. It seems unbelievable that the minister could even consider this type of amendment unless there is a purposeful exposure of the defenceless public to criminal activity

A more empowering amendment of the regulations should rather consider facilitating or simplifying the process by which the public can protect him/herself against the criminal element in SA society.

Criminals dont obide by the law changing the laws regarding the firearms that we in private security use is a risk to society and the peace like the police uses firearms for their protection we also deserve that right as we help the police

The Security companies protect us, assist with fighting crime, they should have firearms on their person at all times.

I really dont understand how Cele can even think of such a stupid idea!! The police in this country cannot cope with all the daily crime as it is. This leaves all citizens open to be attacked and murdered! He wants to disarm the security and all citizens who own a legal firearm! These security companies are helping to protect homes, citizens and businesses! What is wrong with him to even suggest this? Its going to lead to major anarchy and the criminals will take full advantage of open season to them!! Where are we going to?

Security companies should be armed with the best semi-automatic rifles.

Changing policy is only needed when something needs to be fixed. In this case it seems that the Government is not considering the impacts of changing policies. Criminals do not abide by law, so you are using law to disarm citizens and empower criminals? Your end result will be a security person needing to protect a family with pepper spray against multiple criminals armed guns. How does that make sense or is governments personal security exempt from the law? Who knows, perhaps the criminals are working for the government?

Vast numbers of South African taxpayers rely on the services and protection of private security companies, at huge cost, as the police service simply doesn’t respond and when they do are ill-equipped to investigate and resolve crime in this country. Sort out the problems with our corrupt and ineffectual police service before meddling in an industry that works!

I do not agree with the amendment because private security does the same dangerous work as the police they also go after armed robbers that has full auto weapons and they assist police with operations the private sector will collapse due to the danger that the amendment is placing them under

This law will proof unconstitutional as it will take away the right to life, own property and self protection. SAPS cannot keep the citizens of this country save. Incapacitation private security is a step backwards in fighting crime.

If you disarm the private security sector, who will be doing the work of government as they surely are incapable to serve and protect.
William

It will be the cause of many security personel leaving the industry as they will fear for thier lives feeling un safe being disarmed with no way to defend themselves.All this will have an effect that will go three ways, disruption of services,unemployment and a further rise in crime not to mention a rise in inflation and loss of money to private security companies

In the current state of things, we have armed response unit protecting our police stations. These same armed response units also protect the people of this country in their homes and businesses seeing as the police force doesn't always have the time, capacity or training to do so. Resolve the problems with this regard first before removing the only other protection that un armed citizens have. This is just another attempt at disarming people to rely on a failing government. Unacceptable.

The police minister firstly has to make surethe crime rate in the country is down to almost none and the police officers has to know how to use a firearm like we as security officers has to know it. We use semi automatic firearms cause it is sofar proven important when confronted by criminals using firearms a revolver will result in more deaths of security guards and the police are non functional anyway or always late to a crime scene.
Phillippus

It makes no sense to prevent Security staff especially Armed Response Officers from carryingsemi aitomatic pistols. Criminals have access to powerfull firearms and now you want Security staff to take them on with revilvers?
Control illegal firearms jnstead off trying to disarm the legally armed security staff who protects our lives and property!!
