This ruling hits way too close to home.
Gun control is a crucial issue. Even if you do not own a firearm, you must understand this.
Having access to a firearm means you and your family can protect themselves. You are not at the mercy of a violent criminal.
It also means citizens have a measure of power over the government. You are not dependent on the government to keep you safe. Nor can the government push you around.
But one court just decided that 300,000 weren’t allowed to keep their guns. They must turn them into the police, or else.
From Zero Hedge:
The Constitutional Court of South Africa recently ruled that 300,000 gun owners must turn in their firearms.
This judgment came in response to the North Gauteng High Court’s ruling in 2017 which said Section 24 and Section 28 of the Firearm’s Control Act were unconstitutional…
Now that the High Court’s initial ruling has been overturned, gun owners who failed to renew their firearms licenses must hand in their firearms to the nearest police station, where authorities will then proceed to destroy them.
This might seem like a far-away problem to Americans, but don’t be fooled. Far left politicians around the world seek to erode our gun rights.
We see this every day in the United States. Liberal politicians look for loopholes in order to deprive American citizens of their gun rights.
They want you to believe the restricting access to guns will keep us safe. They require permits or waiting periods or complicated hoops to jump through. All to prevent people from buying guns.
Their idiotic argument is that this will prevent “dangerous” people from acquiring guns. Yet every day we learn about mass shootings, gun violence in the streets, and domestic killings.
So I guess the dangerous people can get guns anyway, huh.
You know who can’t get guns, thanks to gun control? Law abiding citizens. Strict gun laws and court orders mean citizens won’t have the firearms they need to protect themselves.
This is happening right now in South Africa. But it happens every day in Europe and the United States.
If we sit by, it will happen more and more in our own country. Until the Second Amendment is a thing of the past.
