DA calls on public to submit objections to Gun Bill before 31 July deadline
26 July 2021
The DA calls on members of the public to sign our online petition and make their own formal written objections against the Firearms Control Amendment Bill before the 31 July deadline for public comments.
The petition has already gained significant traction with more than 83 000 signatures since we launched the petition in May this year.
The deadline for public submissions is 31 July 2021 and we urge those who have not yet signed the DA’s petition to do so. We also urge South Africans to submit their objections to this disastrous piece of legislation by sending an email to [email protected]
The DA does not support the Firearms Control Amendment Bill as it seeks to remove self-defence as a valid reason to possess a firearm in South Africa. It seeks to disarm law-abiding citizens and force them to rely on a police service which is understaffed, under-resourced and which has failed to combat crime.
