    South Africa

    Good Evening Guys.
    The proposed amendments to the Firearms Control Act 2000 have just 'broken cover' and according to one of our leading Firearm Lawyers are 'terrible'.
    No further details are available as yet but one thing is certain ...the amendments will all be to the detriment of decent, law abiding, legal and licenced firearm owners and will do nothing to stop the proliferation of illegal firearms in the hands of criminals.
    The ruling ANC has made it perfectly clear that they want to disarm the People of South Africa...The People...not the criminals !

    Well that is something we fear here in the US. Sounds like you might be a lot closer than us to having it happen. So sorry to hear. Stay strong.

    We hear rumblings from our politicians, but the people here seem to be overwhelmingly against strict gun control. What's the mood of the voters there?

    You folks are in the most need of firearms now more than in the last 100 years. I hope that you can defeat the measure and stay free to defend yourselves.

    OK Guys.
    Just seen the draft amendments...*what the hell* !
    You really could not make this *stuff* up !
    Amongst other 'goodies'....
    'to provide that no firearms licences may be issued for self defence purposes'.
    It would seem that the Inmates are really in charge of the Asylum !
    Heaven Help Us All !

    You've been in South Africa long enough to know exactly what they are trying to do. Making firearms illegal is only part of the plan. You've seen it in other African countries. Make them happy and leave.

    Sounds like our looney left is running things there in South Africa.

    If George Soros is 'one of yours' then the answer is yes.
    He funds Gun Free South Africa which seems to have the ear of Government.
    SA's President Cyril Ramaphosa and he had a nice little chat recently in New York !
