In this episode we look at firearms ownership in South Africa. We discuss how many and what types of firearms a person can own and the steps in the process of purchasing a firearm. We look at the different kind of firearms licenses available (self-defense, sport, hunting and collecting), and the national police register of firearms. We also look at issues like concealed carry, ammunition purchasing, suppressors, and magazine capacity.

    sounds like a very complicated and unnecessary process, and set of laws. while some good points are there,( silencers, SBRs and import what you want) it takes too long and is very unnecessary with the regulations and licenses. and why, why license ammo. and what if you want to collect different caliber cartridges? ( I would like to) , you can't in S.A. . and what is the country really afraid of? why not just let the people be free? and this is what the commies ( "deomcrats" who really are anything but) are trying for here prior to just taking them all away.

    As a Texan watching this video, it seems that although the process of actually buying a firearm in South Africa seems extremely tedious, your firearms laws have less strange arbitrary rules and guidelines than we have here stateside. Also the fact that you can buy almost any modern fully automatic weapon is awesome. We will probably never get that law changed, but I wish we could.

    A once beautiful country, absolutely ruined. Under apartheid life was better for everyone. Racial diff are real, no matter how much people want to pretend they aren’t. South Africa used to a 1st world country, now it’s just like the rest of the continent. Dangerous and a social mess. Demographics are destiny

    How about just carry an unlicensed firearm then have a lawyer defend your freedom of security since its in the bill of rights if you do get caught with that same firearm? I’m not waiting 90 days or possibly longer to be approved/denied while anything can happen to me in the interim of that waiting period. Our gun laws suck

    Sounds like a bunch of BS to me. In America the citizens want to keep authority over their country, so we don't give into national registries that could be used against us. We fight gun crime by arming more law abiding people.

    My father is a lawyer and he aplied for a firearm for self defense and after 7 months he heard nothing back from SAPS so then he took matters into his own hands so he asked his boss who is a politician named Mathews Phosa to help then he got his gun ownership certificate after 2 weeks,so in South Africa it is not what you know,it is who you know

    This video makes it seem much easier than it is. I waited 7 months for my competency and have been waiting 7 months for my license, still not approved. Have friends that have waited 2 years for their firearm. Absolutely ridiculous licensing system. Also, you have to motivate why you need a firearm, and there are no set standards for this motivation, two different people can hand in the same motivation, one can get approved the other refused. If you are refused, appeal will take 6-8 months or re-apply and wait another 6-8 months

    South Africa has a rich history of firearms in the same manner as the United States. Unfortunately I do not agree with your degree of laws to be applied here in the US. As divided as this country is, these laws would be perverted to the point of absurdity. The long range ability of South Africans is highly respected. Thank you for sharing.

    Aussie here . At least you can buy a decent firearm voluminous paperwork not with standing . I. Aus you can buy but no pump guns nor semi autos. As far as pistols its heavily restricted. Odd story. 35 yrs ago a 20ft container arrived at Botany Port Sydney from Smith & Wesson US for NSW Police Service . Port controlled by unionised Waterside Workers. Good guys I might add. Contained thousands of 4 inch S & W 38 cal revolvers . Deputy Commissioner arrives with his escort to supervise transport to HQ. Opens sealed container to inspect goods. Not a revolver to be seen. Some oiled paper on the floor only. All hushed up. Smirks from the boys. Next load from S & W by air freight naturally .
    Thought the reader might be interested in the insanity of these firearm laws. Just leave common sense behind shall we?.
