Judgment regarding expired firearm licences

The Constitutional Court has handed down judgment a few minutes ago in the matter of SA Hunters & Game Conservation Association v Minister of Safety & Security.

The court found that the provisions of the Firearms Control Act governing the expiry and renewal of firearm licences are not unconstitutional and remain as they are.

This means that the court has not come to the rescue of firearm owners with expired licences.

DON’T PANIC!

A further report will follow shortly.

CHECK THE EXPIRY DATE OF ALL YOUR LICENCES NOW AND MAKE SURE YOU RENEW AT LEAST 90 DAYS BEFORE EXPIRY!!!
