Deadline missed... now what?: for firearm owners who didn't renew their licenses

If you are a firearm owner who didn't renew your licence by the deadline of 31 March 2009, then you have until 30 June 2009 to "opt for other options such as selling of their firearms to another person/legal entity, applying to the South African Police Service to deactivate the firearm or voluntarily handing the firearm over to the South African Police Service for destruction".

Comply before the deadline - unlawful possession of a firearm is a serious criminal offence.

Updated on 01 July 2009: See Firearms license: gun owners have more time with their firearms until the court tests the validity of The Firearms Control Act for info on the 30 June 2009 deadline extension.

For those who have not applied for an extension, you need to re-apply for a new firearms license.
