Gun Free SA applauds the state’s destruction of firearms today, International Gun Destruction Day. Today’s destruction represents an act of solidarity with all those whose lives have been devastated by gun violence, it demonstrates South Africa’s compliance with international practice regarding the destruction of firearms, and ensures that they can never find their way back into circulation – to kill, injure or threaten anyone. Destroying these guns has a direct bearing on reducing crime as less guns means less gun violence.
