Hi Guys - this is an extract from the Daily Maverick Nov 2014 - and is not verified - can anyone shed more light on it?

FCAB, (Firearms Control Amendment Bill B-2014) out soon for ‘public comment’ (yeah right!), hidden in the last chapter is a seemingly innocuous clause in Section 29. 1(E) which reads as follows;
Relicensing of Firearms:-
(1) Any licence which was—
(a) issued in terms of the Arms and Ammunition Act, 1969
or previous legislation ; and (b) not renewed as contemplated in this Act, remains valid for a period of two years from the coming into operation of the Firearms Control Amendment Act, 2014.
