South Africa's 2019/20 national firearms amnesty started on 1 December 2019 and ends on 31 May 2020. In this time you can hand in your unwanted, unlawful or illegal firearm for destruction.

If you've been shot or threatened by a gun, witnessed gun violence, or know someone who’s been killed, injured or threatened by a gun, you're a survivor of gun violence.

You have the power to help reduce and prevent gun violence; raise your voice in support of a South Africa free from gun violence.

You can take action against gun violence by declaring your space – your home, your place of work, worship or study, even your car – a Gun Free Zone (GFZ).

Reducing access to lethal means is an effective way to increase the odds that a suicide attempt will end in care, not in death.

Any woman who lives in fear of a gun in her home can ask the magistrates court or the police to remove the gun immediately.

If someone you know has a gun and you think that they (or the gun) are dangerous, you can ask the police to remove the gun. 

If you have a firearm that you want to get rid of you can either sell it or have it destroyed – you are not allowed to destroy it yourself.
