South Africa has one of the highest murder rates in the world; with guns being the leading cause. 23 people are SHOT & KILLED a day. During our #SilenceTheGunsSA campaign we’ll highlight stats and discuss solutions.

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 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.
