Have gun crimes gone down?
Letters Wed, 26 Sep 2007


I asked in a previous letter to The Witness if reported crime
involving guns had been reduced during the three years the new
restrictive gun laws have been in place. After all, Gun Free
South Africa and the police all claimed that violence would be
reduced if we took guns out of circulation.


Now I see that about 4 000 guns disappeared from the hands of
the police last year. Well I guess the answer is that the police
have simply taken guns from licensed citizens and given them
back to the criminals, so there has not been a reduction in
violent crime.
