Welcome police destruction of 30,000 unlicensed guns, calls for action to stop leakage risk

Gun Free SA welcomes today’s destruction by the police of 30,000 seized and surrendered firearms. The last such destruction took place on 27 October 2016. It is globally recognised that destroying excess, unwanted and recovered firearms is the only way to guarantee that these are not leaked into the illegal pool of weapons.  Based on SA’s experience of guns earmarked for destruction leaking from police stores as well as global good practice, Gun Free SA also made a written submission to the police calling for steps to ensure that weapons earmarked for destruction are destroyed.
