While Gun Free SA commends SAPS for arresting 16 people (including police officials and gun dealers) for firearm licence-related fraud and corruption, these arrests are long overdue. Gun Free SA reiterates our call for concrete action, including a forensic audit of all firearm licences and authorisations issued since November 2010 (when we first became aware of corruption in SA’s firearm control management system) and urges that these arrests are analysed to review SA’s firearms control management system, and close loopholes in both policy and implementation.
