Gun owners are furious as government revealed proposed changes to the law that would remove self-defence as a valid reason to own a firearm.
The invitation for public comments on the Draft Firearms Control Amendment Bill was released on Friday night.
Girls on Fire, which helps women lawfully license firearms for self-defence, says this could be a major blow to the fight against gender-based violence.
Gun Owners SA says the proposed changes are a rehash of what was proposed — and shot down — in 2018.
The public has until early July to submit their written comments on the Draft Bill to the Civilian Secretariat for Police.
