It's a long article, so I'll post just the first paragraph.

The South African Firearms Control Act, or FCA, became law on July 1, 2004, and the chaos that ensued was unbelievable. Although the government was warned extensively about the implications of such poor ideological legislation, what remains in summation is that the FCA supports and enables criminals to ply their trade with impunity.
