Black Gun to Sue Government

By Olona Vika

The Black Gun Owners Association threatens to sue government an amount of 3.2.bn rands over lost jobs. They say that this is since the government implemented the new Fire Arms Control Act in 2004.

The association’s chair person Abios Khoele told the press that a total of 10 000 thousand people lost jobs, 800 hundred gun shops closed down and over 40 000 blacks were refused firearm licences in the period between 2004 and 2010.

Khoele also said that the South African government is so hell burnt in making sure that black people do not have access to fire arms and the reason being that it has made empty promises to blacks that now they are afraid if they are armed they will turn on the government.

About 700 000 people are being represented by the organisation. Khoele says this number includes gun shop owners who are losing business, gun shop owners that were liquidated, and also those people that paid for the training and passed the complimentary test but were refused licences.

The lawsuit will be filed before the end of July 2010
