Gun Free South Africa ( GFSA ) has urged the government to put more stringent restrictions on legal firearms because they continue to be the main source of illicit ones.

The nation’s most recent quarterly crime statistics were released on Friday by Police Minister Bheki Cele.

According to the statistics, at least 34 people are killed by gunfire each day in the nation.

Adele Kirsten, director of the GFSA, claims that two things must occur in order to tighten South Africa’s gun control.

To close the gaps, one is for the minister ( Cele ) to introduce the Firearms Control Amendment Bill to Parliament.

The Central Firearms Registry was the subject of the second measure, she claimed.

The Central Firearms Registry must be fully operational and able to track every gun owned by both citizens and the government from birth to death, according to the police.

The rising number of police officers being killed, according to Kirsten, is another issue.
