Good guys and bad guys?

There are times when every firearm owner in South Africa must wish for an organisation to represent them that is willing to fight for their rights and not toss them under governments gun control bus. Not one of the existing shameful organisations has the guts to challenge government or see the wrongs of such unmitigated stupidity like the current legislation.

Believe it on not all theses current organisations now fully support what they initially claimed was the work of evil and errant minded pressure groups like gun free South Africa. It simply begs the question who do they actually represent gun control or firearm owners? Do they support good laws or bad laws? Do they support laws that will reduce crime, the supply of guns to criminals and most importantly public safety? If they do it is the worlds best kept secret. From the available evidence of their media statements it seems these firearm organisations are promoting gun control that has failed abysmally in doing what it promised. Who feels any safer after 2000 when this Act was passed?

So in truth what should the public do with organisations that publicly announce they and their members are elitists, better than others? Treat them with respect knowing that the basis of firearm organisations elitist belief is a lie?  There is absolutely no evidence in the world to support their claim of being good guys and nobody in existence knows how to tell a good guy from a bad guy in order to deny them firearm ownership. That in itself is another blatantly false belief anyone who gives it a moments thought can deduce. Exactly how many people have such laws stopped smuggling, making, obtaining, selling or using banned drugs? How many people did the equally idiot prohibition of alcohol in the US stop. However it seems we have a problem in our education system where we fail to teach people you cannot change human desire and behaviour by controlling an object. My own suggestion for these elitists it to give them more legislation to like and accept as making them even more superior to normal citizens.

I think government has every intention of giving firearm organisations and owners what they are asking and begging for.  Their appeasement and elitism will not make them smell like roses to anyone including government.  They may gain some respect back by fighting for the rights of all South Africans rather than trying to curry favour for themselves, pretending they are better than others.

SAGA and all other law-abiding citizens believe that criminals and all other incompetent people who possess firearms must be disarmed. Disarming the ?good guys? is nothing but complicity to violent crime.

SAGA I am sure will describe how they can tell a deserving good guy from a bad guy. Just don't hold your breath waiting for an answer. It's OK government cannot either.

Good citizens say SAGA as a representative firearm owner organisation shamefully does not have a clue. That it is trying to falsely claim it is better than others equally deserving of having the right to own the best means of self-defence. What happened to their rights SAGA and why is SAGA not interested in the least with public safety and sits silent while government endangers people with forcible disarmament and useless restrictions?
