The date for the NHSA’s urgent court application to set aside the current firearms amnesty has been set for 14 January 2020. The Festive season has unfortunately gotten in the way of an earlier date to hear the case.
As always SAPS have used December, the traditionally “dead” month of the year, to make important announcements on matters regarding the FCA and its Regulations.
Members can read the 11-12-2019 filed NHSA court papers in our Newsletter Vol. 15(35) on the Natshoot website.
NHSA will always support a firearms amnesty if it is focussed on taking illegal firearms out of the hands of violent criminals. However, the reasons for NHSA opposing the implementation of the current amnesty is clearly stated in the last 8 Newsletters on the Natshoot website.
In follow up of our Email of 14-12-2019 on the responses to our request for urgent assistance, we have received an additional 837 Emails with answers, which will be incorporated into the already reported statistics (that makes an overwhelming 6,279 responses from our members – thank you!). We shall incorporate those answers into the current statistics.
We shall keep you posted on matters regarding the amnesty as it develops.
Please enjoy a safe Festive season; may the very best of your 2019 be the very worst of your 2020!
