FCA Bill Submissions Closing Soon – 2 August 2021
If you have not yet made a submission on the Firearms Control Amendment Bill, 2021 we would like to encourage you to do so before the 2 August 2021 deadline.
Anyone can make a submission, not only SAGA members. The more people who make rational, constructive submissions, the stronger our approach will be.
The Bill affects not only the right to choose to own a firearm for self-defence, but many persons, businesses and industries, and also removes the collecting of firearms, restricts the numbers of firearms that sport shooters and hunters can own, restricts the types of firearms that security companies can own, removes reloading of ammunition and introduces minimum age limits for competency and for persons shooting under your supervision.
Therefore have your say, before it is too late, and do not be that firearm owner who complains about the government and police, but who does not taken action. So here is your final opportunity to be heard – and make yourself heard now!
Send your submission to:
The Secretary for Police Service
Make sure your submission states your full name, postal address, email address, telephone number and, if applicable, your fax number.
What Can You Do to Help SAGA?
It is clear from the devastating riots, insurrection and looting that took place in our country just over a week ago, that an armed and prepared citizenry is essential to help maintain our hard-won democracy.
SAGA stands in solidarity with the people of KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng who have experienced this traumatic period. These are the people who stood together as law-abiding citizens, who were lawfully armed, and who were able to make a difference by
protecting lives and property when it counted most.
SAGA has already sent letters to the President of South Africa, the Minister of Police, and the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Police, stressing the importance of having law-abiding, legally armed citizens and calling for the urgent withdrawal of the FCA Bill.
Now, more than ever, SAGA needs your support to help grow our membership base. Strength obviously lies in numbers and for SAGA that means
…more people being involved,
…the more reach we can achieve,
…the more work we can do,
and all for legal gunowners.
Count yourself as part of our team to be more and to do more – just by signing up your family and friends. Use the QR code here, or join via our website or contact our office by email or phone.
Also make sure you keep your own membership up to date by renewing as soon as you receive our renewal notice.
