Onwettige Vuurwapens in Suid-Afrika

Hoeveel onwettige vuurwapens is daar in Suid-Afrika?   Hoekom maak regters in howe verskillende uitsprake rakende die vonnisse?  Selfs in die geval waar Polisiebeamptes gesteelde vuurwapens moet ondersoek, word dit oor die algemeen as ‘n normale huisinbraak ondersoek selfs al word burgers in daardie huis gedreig, gemartel en geslaan/verkrag, veral plaasmoorde en aanvalle.

AGTERGROND

Lees die ou persverklaring van Polisie wat in 2000 gedoen was – wat het die SAPD die afgelope 18 jaar gedoen om onwettige vuurwapens te vat – hoeveel keer word daar nie proteste gehou met wapens nie, en soms word tot op publiek en polisiebeamptes geskiet.   WAAR kom al die AK’s vandaan?

The most serious problems with firearms in South Africaare the increasing number of both illegal and legal firearms and their direct and indirect contribution to the high levels of violent crime.
There are about half a million illegal firearms in the country already and more keep flowing into this pool.

ILLEGAL FIREARMS
There are about half a million illegal firearms in the country already and more keep flowing into this pool.

The main sources of these illegal firearms are;
· firearms that have been stolen from private owners;
· firearms that have been lost or stolen from the South African Police Service (SAPS), the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) and other State departments;
· home made firearms;
· firearms imported illegally from neighbouring states or through seaports;
· firearms distributed illegally in the former Transkei, Ciskei, Bophuthatswana and Venda;
· firearms missing from security companies.

It is estimated that of all the illegal firearms in the country:
· 200 000 have been stolen from or lost by the State;
· at least 150 000 have been stolen from or lost by private owners;
· 20 000 – 30 000 are homemade firearms.

FIREARMS USED FOR CRIME
An increasing amount of crime is committed with a firearm. This is the case whether the crime is a murder or whether it is a robbery.

Statistics related to the use of firearms in murders and non-natural deaths show that:
· In 1998, 49 percent of all murders and 75 percent of all attempted murders were committed with firearms.
· Firearms are responsible for 30 percent of all non-natural deaths in the country. This amounts to approximately 18 000 people each year.
· Over 170 police officers are murdered with firearms each year. Handguns are used in most of these murders.

Hier is twee scenarios wat plaasvind :
1.   Wanneer ‘n vuurwapen van ‘n plaasboer of burger gesteel word, nadat hulle fisies aangehou, gemartel is en sommige doodgemartel is, of met pangas of met ‘n AK, word baie ligte vonnisse uitgespreek teenoor die misdadiger of moordenaar en word dit as HUISINBRAAK aangeteken.
2.   Wanneer daar egter vuurwapens gesteel word uit die weermag/lugmag is dit tot 43 jaar vonnis.

Vuurwapens word gesteel van WETTIGE houers, wat daardie vuurwapen aangekoop het om hulself en gesinne mee te verdedig.   Die enigste wat weet wie wettige wapens het, is die Polisiediens self, waar jy aansoek doen daarvoor.

Meeste vuurwapens wat ook gebuit word, kom uit ‘n kluis uit.   Heelwat burgers en boere wat onverhoeds gevang word, se wapens is agter slot en grendel.  Nugter alleen weet hoekom dit daar moet bly, want dis aangekoop met die doel om jouself te verdedig.  Elkeen wat wettig in besit is van ‘n vuurwapen ondergaan nodige opleiding hoe om ‘n vuurwapen te hanteer en kry ook ‘n bevoegdheidsertifikaat om dit te gebruik.

Meeste vuurwapens wat gebruik word deur moordenaars en misdadigers, is vrylik beskikbaar en geen kluis is hierby betrokke nie.  Hulle ondergaan GEEN opleiding nie en daar word geen vereistes aan hulle gestel nie.  Sulke tipe mense is vrylik om te beweeg en ook vuurwapens te gebruik.

Sodra ‘n moordenaar of misdadiger sy taak van verwoesting agtergelaat het, vat hy alle vuurwapens met hom/haar saam.   Hoe weet hierdie moordenaars waar om in te breek en te gaan vuurwapens kry.   As daardie vuurwapens die wettige eienaar se besit/kluis verlaat, is en bly dit onwettige vuurwapens.   Hoe is dit anders dat ‘n Boer/Burger anders behandel word as die van ‘n Vloot of weermag, selfs SAPD vuurwapens wat gesteel word.  Daar word dan register gehou van al hierdie Weermag/vloot/SAPD vuurwapens – wie en waar dit uitgereik word.
