Article.

More.

Quote:
It followed an instruction in February 2016 by the then acting national police commissioner‚ Khomotso Phahlane‚ that police stations should not accept any late renewal applications for firearm licences.


Well that sounds a bit silly, I suppose their point is you have to leave it with a dealer if you miss the deadline. This has to be viewed in the context of how hopeless SAPS has been at running the licencing system, which to be fair wasn't spelled out well in the legislation (as I said to them at the time). It contains a variety of oddities that are difficult to put into practice.

This didn't help.

Article written by Gun Free South Africa.

Well that's an interesting article, but it doesn't make sense because on the one hand he points out that compliance with the 2000 Act has been minimal (a million people with the old licences did not get new ones, as opposed to less than 200,000 who did), but then he says what a wonderful law it is as armed crime has dropped since 2000.

Can't have it both ways.
