2006-07-02 : Public needs guns too

ANYONE who points a gun at a police officer will be killed, Safety and Security Minister Charles Nqakula said in an interview with the SABC on Sunday.

Following the minister’s statement that the mere pointing of a firearm at a policeman will be met by a “hail” of bullets, what about the man in the street?

More farmers are killed than police and more civilians are mugged than police.

Yet this same minister is intent on disarming the law-abiding population. Surely if civilians are suffering more at the hands of criminals than the police, they should be given every assistance to defend themselves.

Instead of pushing ahead with the dreadful Firearm Control Act, the minister should be subsidising civilian gun ownership.
