Welcome declaration of 6 month national firearms amnesty starting 1 December

28 November 2019: Gun Free SA welcomes yesterday’s declaration by the Minister of Police that a six month national firearms amnesty – the fourth in South Africa’s history – will begin on 1 December. South Africa’s experience of holding amnesties confirms just how effective they are at recovering guns, including unwanted, unauthorised and illegal guns. “If the 2019/20 amnesty is undertaken as part of a comprehensive strategy aimed at recovering and destroying the existing pool of firearms and limiting the flow of new firearms into communities it holds the potential to begin reversing South Africa’s gun violence crisis,” says Adèle Kirsten, Gun Free South Africa’s Director.
