Have special courts for unlicensed firearms


I would like to add my views about illegal guns a concern for South African citizen. I think the government should create special courts for unlicensed firearms. This can help save the country from senseless killings.

Other strategies should include random stop and searches of everyone on the streets and at roadblocks. If found with an unlicensed firearm, a sentence must be imposed the following day while awaiting results of the ballistic test for possible further charges.

I think these measures can work; criminals must be made to think twice about acquiring and using unlicensed firearms.
