Description

The SABC News investigation has revealed that South Africans who voluntarily surrendered firearms 7 years ago, are still on the Central Firearms Registry. The Registry is mandated to process firearms applications in all provinces, and maintain a database of legal firearm owners, in keeping with the firearms control legislation. By his own admission though, Police Minister Nathi Nhleko recently said the SAPS-run Firearms Registry is in shambles, which significantly affects gun control, and the implementation of the Firearms Control Act. Other reports indicate that the Registry's office faces numerous challenges including storage, corruption, staff shortages, and matters related to the application and licence renewal processes.
