CAPE TOWN: The city of Cape Town is urging the federal government to tighten gun control regulations.
Five firearms were seized in 14 hours over the weekend by the city’s law enforcement agencies.
According to the most recent quarterly crime statistics, South Africa sees 34 fatal shootings every day.
The number of guns on the streets seems to go on forever, according to JP Smith, a safety and security representative for the City of Mayco.
Five illegal firearms were seized in 14 hours by the city’s enforcement agencies. Our grave concerns about the growth of illegal firearms in our city are supported by these confiscations. Despite the fact that our staff removes a large number of illegal firearms from the streets, there seems to be an endless supply.
According to Smith, the city is once again requesting assistance from the criminal justice system.
