    Default PLEASE HANDLE AIR RIFLES RESPONSIBLY

    SAFTAA appeals to all air rifle owners to handle their equipment in a safe and responsible manner. Attached is a letter from the SAPS to the SA Paintball Association suspending them (and all paintball activities) temporarily. Even though probably less than 1% of paintball gun owners are members of the association, the latter is now being held responsible for the misuse by any paintball owners.

    Please ensure that our organised air rifle sports and the enjoyment of air rifle shooting by all in general is not threatened by the reckless actions of a few.

    The letter looks extremely unproffessional. How on earth can the police suspend activities? The court decide these things not some or other police Dir. BTW, this guy is in charge of aquisition and bidding?????????????????

    I smell spoof!

    Just look at the wording of that letter...not quite sure what some of it is supposed to mean...and this is supposed to have been written by a high ranking official.

    How on earth can an association be held responsible for the reckless behaviour of the public at large??? It would be like holding the F1 association responsible for the misuse of a car by a motorist...

    Mogosetjie cant empose a ban, he can however start the process that might lead to a ban. So it is just a serious imo.

    I have heard of morons that shoot at people out of driving cars for fun, and also that moron strip club owner who also shot his staff at the workplace with a paintball gun.

    Lets be sure we are responsable at all times.
