South Africa – -(Ammoland.com)- South African Gunowners Association ( SAGA ) has been advised that South African Police Service ( SAPS ) in the Western Cape will be conducting an operation aimed at gunowners who have failed, for whatever reason, to timeously renew their licences in respect of specific guns.

It appears that SAPS teams will be conducting ‘raids’ on targeted individuals mostly at their residences with a view to confiscating guns and ammunition.

SAGA cannot at this stage speculate as to what SAPS intends to achieve by this action, nor what other steps may be taken by SAPS at the time of such visit.

In the interim all lawful gun owners are advised that:

1. If you are in possession of the old green licence, that licence is still valid in terms of an Order of the High Court – a copy of this order is available from SAGA.

2. If SAPS personnel or anyone under their command, after correctly identifying themselves, and providing some form of warrant or authorization insists on taking possession of your gun, you are advised to cooperate with them while pointing out that a green licence is valid at this date. Moreover, with respect to the validity of expired White Licences you may point out that within weeks of this date various high profile court actions are due to be heard.

SAGA legal counsel believes the so-called raids and any confiscation of guns as a result thereof is possibly breaching the Firearms Control Act and other laws.

3. SAGA is considering an urgent interdict to address this issue – It will, however not be helpful for a gun owner to refuse to cooperate with the police.

4. Before Signing any document presented to you by the police in this context contact SAGA (Damian Enslin – cell number 082 652 2150 or Jonathan Deal 023 358 9903 or whatsap to 076 838 5150.) A document that can be applied in the case of handing over a gun to SAPS for safekeeping – not surrender – is available from SAGA, and can be downloaded from the SAGA’s website.

5. This advice or assistance is offered to all gun owners who are free to contact SAGA.

      1. Are you kidding it has already been happening here, look at what happened after Katrina, as well as the aftermath of Sandy, guns were confiscated. Also look what is happening to many VETERANS their guns are being taken from them, in many cases because they are combat VETS, I know a few VETERANS that happened too, they are still trying to get their guns back, some of the guns are very old and some are from the 1800s. The one vet had about a dozen Brown besses taken from him.

    1. South Africa is a real mess. Those savage animals are viciously attacking white farmers left & right. Do not allow the Gov’t to steal your firearms.

    2. Yeah lets not put those forces to work stopping the burning out of white farmers use them to enforce permit oversights. All dressed up in tacticool and willing but don’t want to actually fight those who will fight back.

    3. So which is better? Getting disarmed and then murdered by government sponsored gangs but still owning land, or just walking away leaving all your stuff behind to go live in a country that is not hostile to you because you are Caucasian? That in reality is your choice if you are a Caucasian South African.

      1. Besides dying or running there is another option…
        “…That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

    4. This gun grab is basic training for the U.N. “Integrated Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Standards” “Operation Guide”. Yes it is 288 pages. Look online and read it. Their carefully crafted plan is posted online for all to see and learn from. Are you prepared?

    5. This is what happens when the govt has standing forces with which to oppress. Call them a standing army as the Founders did or call them law enforcement as we do now the result is the same, tyranny. All around the world we need to disarm govts. That or you can thank officers for their service while they raid your home, kill your dog, & steal your guns.

      “What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty…. Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.” (Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts, spoken during floor debate over the Second Amendment [I Annals of Congress at 750, August 17, 1789])
