CHASA Advice To Holders Of Firearms With Expired Licences

Following our notice dated 4 July 2018 wherein we expressed our view that the only an AMNESTY, Declared by The Minister, can solve the current crisis facing firearm owners who failed to renew their licences in terms of Sec 24 of the FCA, we are extremely pleased to share the information that this now appears to be the likely outcome.

Research project on Oribi

I am currently conducting research for my Masters thesis. I am examining farmers’ attitudes towards conservation, as well as their willingness to participate in conservation programmes, with specific reference to the endangered oribi antelope.

In order to gather the necessary information, I am distributing a brief survey that contains questions pertaining to farmers land management practices, attitudes towards conservation, as well as questions regarding oribi on their lands.

I am asking that farmers that have oribi on their properties, as well as those who do not but may have suitable oribi habitat (i.e. natural grassland/veld), participate in this survey. I would be incredibly grateful to those willing to do so.

The information collected in this project will be used to inform oribi conservation efforts on private land. Any personal information provided will be kept strictly confidential.

Please find the link to the survey below.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any queries.

Chasa Interim Notice To Members And The Firearm Owning Public

(While we await official SAPS Directives from the NATIONAL Commissioner, we cannot in good conscience give guaranteed advice. Much speculation is happening. This notice therefore indicates our current best information and commentary)

There are TWO categories of persons who fall into the above general category:

1)Those who transitioned in the period between 2006 and 2009 from the old “GREEN LICENCE” to the new act’s “WHITE LICENCE”.

2)Those whom acquired their firearm under the NEW ACT, and have only ever held a so called “WHITE LICENCE”

Constitutional Court decision of 07 June 2018

Most of you will be aware of the Constitutional Court decision of 07 June 2018.

The Constitutional Court, in dismissing the application of SA Hunters and Game Conservation Association, upheld the constitutionality of Sections 24 and 28 of the Firearms Control Act. This means that you are compelled to relicence your firearm in terms of Section 24 and if you fail to do so, the possession of your firearm is illegal and you are criminalised.

The Judgment of the Constitutional Court is short, simple and to the point. It is also a final Judgment and any criticism of the Judgment is of no purpose or consequence.

What we need to consider now, is the consequences of the Judgment and if you have an expired licence, and what you can do.

The Constitutional Court ruled that the life of your licence is finite as determined by the Act and if you do not renew the licence, your licence terminates, the firearm becomes illegal and possession thereof is criminalised i.e. you become a criminal. The Constitutional Court pointed out, however, that if you intend to surrender the firearm to the police on an expired licence, you cannot be prosecuted, because handing in the firearm is a solution to the illegal possession. Froneman J specifically stated “I can see no legal obstacle to hand in a firearm over to the police after termination.” (of the licence)

This means that the safest most precautionary approach to take, is to surrender your firearm to the police for destruction if you have an expired licence.

The other alternative, which comes without any guarantees at this stage, is to wait for the proposed amnesty that the police are busy trying to finalise and put before Parliament and apply for a licence in terms of such amnesty. This comes, however, with some potential risks inasmuch as your possession of a firearm on an expired licence remains illegal until you have handed it in to the police and applied for an licence in terms of the amnesty.

Under no circumstances and as a result of this Judgment, should anybody with an expired licence carry and/or use their firearm until they have been granted a licence in terms of the proposed amnesty.

In summary therefore you can:

1) Immediately surrender your firearm to the police for destruction and avoid being criminalised; or

2) You can keep your firearm, not use it or carry it and wait for the proclamation of the amnesty to surrender your firearm in terms of the amnesty and to apply for a licence in terms of the amnesty.

I do not know exactly when the amnesty will be proclaimed.

The Judgment does not change the status of green or old Act licences which remain valid.

Rewilding The Lost Wilderness

I would like to introduce you to the unique Cape conservation
coffee-table book Rewilding The Lost Wilderness: Green Heritage of the
Forgotten Cape, with a Foreword by Dr Ian Player.

In the 317 pages of Rewilding The Lost Wilderness: Green
Heritage of the Forgotten Cape we explore the natural heritage, wildlife
and wilderness of the Northern, Western and Eastern Cape. The story involves
the vegetation and wildlife that occurred and still occur within the Cape, and
the human impact on the natural environment through the ages. The conclusion of
the story explores the reserves and farms that have dedicated themselves to
restoring the original cape ecosystem and all its diversity, and how they
implemented the restoration.
Ten years in the making, Rewilding The Lost Wilderness: Green
Heritage of the Forgotten Cape has been the result of an intense pursuit of
restoration of the Cape of South Africa. After much eager anticipation I can
finally say that Rewilding The Lost Wilderness is officially available with the
inspirational story of Rewilding the Cape. This story of a quintessential
African wilderness that has been lost and regained is a story of hope and
restoration! A tale of hope for all the wilderness areas that has been lost,
and an example for all wilderness areas that is still to be regained! Rewilding
The Lost Wilderness is much anticipated among the international rewilding
community for whom the book will serve as a practical example for the
recreation of lost wilderness areas, especially so in parts of Europe and North
America.
