South Africa Calls for 300,000 Gun Owners to Turn Over Their Weapons

Authored by Jose Nino via GunPowderMagazine.com:


The Constitutional Court of South Africa recently ruled that 300,000 gun owners must turn in their firearms.

This judgement came in response to the North Gauteng High Court’s ruling in 2017 which said Section 24 and Section 28 of the Firearm’s Control Act were unconstitutional.

A report from The Citizen explains what Section 24 and Section 28 entail:

“Section 24 of the Act requires that any person who seeks to renew a licence must do so 90 days before its expiry date Section 28 stipulates that if a firearm licence has been cancelled‚ the firearm must be disposed of or forfeited to the state. A 60-day time frame was placed on its disposal, which was to be done through a dealer.”

Now that the High Court’s initial ruling has been overturned, gun owners who failed to renew their firearms licenses must hand in their firearms to the nearest police station, where authorities will then proceed to destroy them.

Many naïve political observers will paint this event as a casual gun control scheme, but any astute student of politics will recognize that the floodgates are now open for further encroachments – not only on the gun rights of South Africans, but also on others facets of theirs lives.

A look at South Africa’s current political climate will give us an idea of the potential ramifications of this gun control scheme.

Political Trouble Brewing in South Africa?

Though South Africa witnessed rising levels of economic freedom shortly after Apartheid ended in 1994, the country has taken a more interventionist path to economic development in recent years.

This situation is becoming more pronounced with the South African National Assembly recently voting 241-83 to amend the South African constitution to allow for land expropriation without compensation.

The socialist-leaning African National Congress (ANC) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) parties are leading the charge for expropriation under the banner of fixing racial disparities that have supposedly remained intact since Apartheid’s conclusion.

While land confiscation has not been officially finalized, South Africans should worry about the direction their country is going.

And how does gun control fit into this equation?

Gun Control: A Tool for Tyranny

No matter how socialist apologists rationalize it, the redistributionist agenda the South African government is pursuing will not be implemented passively. Ultimately, it must be carried out by force.

The kind of force socialists seek is a monopolized kind, which extreme forms of gun control like gun confiscation help facilitate.

The history of gun confiscation is one of repeated cases of tyranny.

From countries such as Cuba to the Soviet Union, aspiring demagogues have used gun confiscation to disarm the populace. Logically, an unarmed populace will put up little resistance against their tyrannical acts.

In South Africa’s case, farmers and their workers are already suffering ongoing attacks against their property. One could only imagine what it would be like for these persecuted farmers once they are stripped of their right to self-defense.

For many Americans who have enjoyed historically unprecedented gun rights, South Africa’s gun control experience may seem distant and strange.

But make no mistake about it, South Africa’s latest flirtation with gun control is not based on good intentions, especially when considering the political climate the country is enduring.

South Africa should serve as a fair warning to Americans of the dangerous consequences gun control poses.

Yes. It wasn’t Hitler though. He actually expanded gun rights, but clueless idiots were taught differently.

My advice for white South Africans:
If you hand over your guns, you will die. By murder/rape by the terrorist who will take your land and property or by the police when they come to take them by force.
3 options are available to you:
1/ Leave South Africa before it sinks into mayhem and collapse.
2/ Give up your guns and die defenceless.
3/ Fight to the death, defending your land and family.
Sorry, but it’s your choice.

We ought to immigrate all the white land owners to America. Within five years the South Africans will be starving to death.

ANC government wants to steal NOT only the Whites’ lands but also their only means of self defence against the sweeping hordes that will become available. But remember the Bloodriver, where NOT one Boer died but 3000 opposition fighters did

Some ominous foreshadowing, for sure. Or it could be a desire to short circuit the potential for violence as actions escalate. The numbers are sure pointing to a reconciliation of past wrongs needing to be addressed. In Canada we have strong gun control laws and as a result there is little to no gun violence. We settle our differences in the court of law or we don’t settle them at all. If you dont have them you can’t use them, makes law enforcement far more effective in the control of the populace. I’m hoping you will keep me up to… Read more »

Jonathan, here in Canada we are very well armed with more gun owners than hockey players and they actually have stricter gun control in many US cities than Canada does. Furthermore, you’re more likely to be shot in those strict cities than in open carry states. Lastly, Canada’s gun crime rate has been decreasing for decades, and that rate of decline has not changed since we brought in current laws so to try and relate the laws to gun crime is foolhardy. Signed, a Canadian who owns several guns and can walk into Canadian Tire and buy ammo, unlike California… Read more »

The U.S. isn’t going to step in because the U.S. isn’t run by Americans. It’s run by ((globalists)) who want division; divide and conquer. Do you think the international bankers care about S. Africa’s Boers? Well they don’t. The bankers are the ones who want to eliminate, to the greatest extent possible, people of European descent, who for more than 1 thousand years followed Christian principles and built their societies around them. It will be easier to rule over the mixed and squabbling remainder of humanity when Christianity is decimated.

It’s time for White Africans to see the writing on the wall. They must escape before they can’t. Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to suffer in the same ways. Remember the Jewish people who were trapped in Germany and other countries that fell under Nazi control. There is no future for them in that country.

Sigh. Yet another dumb ass that fell for Jewish revisionist bullshit history. “The victors of war write the history”. I suggest you not getting your history lessons from TV and Hollywood, moron. I don’t read replies. Hitler, the most lied about man in history, was right.

Let’s Ban all the Guns! Subject: Gun Control – A ban on citizens owning guns that is meant to insure that only police, military and other government officials are armed. Whether you think gun control “is a good thing” or not, this is an interesting history lesson and definitely something to think about. · In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and murdered. · In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up… Read more »

Just making it easier for the animals to kill the whites. If there are still that many gun owners there, they should band together and overthrow the government, or die trying, beats the alternative of being raped, tortured and killed off slowly!
