Remove a gun in a case of domestic violence

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.

South African women are at risk of becoming victims of gun violence. Many blame this on criminals. But a national study found that more women (57%) were murdered by their husbands or boyfriends (called intimate femicide) than by strangers.  Guns played a major role in these murders; guns were used in 17% of the cases seen.
