FF Plus requests that firearms of Gauteng safety structures must be fitted with microchips

During a recent meeting of the Gauteng Community Safety Committee, the FF Plus proposed that all firearms used by safety structures in the province must be fitted with microchips.

This follows the shocking revelation made by the MEC for Community Safety, Faith Mazibuko, in response to a question by the FF Plus, i.e., that 279 firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition have been reported missing or stolen over the last three years.

There is a strong possibility that these firearms and ammunition could easily land in the hands of criminals, if they have not already.

By fitting firearms with microchips, the following information about any given firearm can be determined at all times: the location of the firearm, who it was issued to, the day and date on which the firearm was fired, the coordinates of the shots that were fired, the number of shots etc.

This modern technology is already being used by private firearm owners and will replace the old method of using serial numbers, which can easily be removed to prevent a firearm from being identified.

The police and security forces have an enormous responsibility to protect the people of Gauteng and, therefore, they deserve modern technology that will help them perform their duties.
