Over the weekend, South African Deputy Minister of Police, Bongani Mkongi spoke to SABC about the government’s intent to make South Africa a gun-free society. He went on about how civilians should be completely disarmed, and that those who dared “take them to court” are part of the problem.
Mkongi is referencing gun rights organization Gun Owners South Africa’s challenge to the gun control regulations that have been passed by the ANC-led government. Just recently, the South African Constitutional Court ruled that firearm ownership isn’t a fundamental right under their Bill of Rights, but rather a privilege to be regulated by the Firearms Control Act. Total civilian disarmament is the end goal.
South Africa had and has a very strong gun culture. Such famous arms makers like Lyttelton Engineering Works, Denel Land Systems, Vektor, Armscor, Milkor (Pty) Ltd., Musgrave, Republic Arms, and others are located there.
Mkongi has made it clear that a gun-free South Africa is the end goal. He lies in that regard. That isn’t the end goal. A total government monopoly on force is the end goal.
This is the same socialist party that is currently confiscating private property and trampling South Africans’ civil rights. But you can’t usher in socialist utopia if the kulaks have the ability to resist.
