In South Africa, the Firearms Control Act 60 of 2000 regulates the ownership of firearms by civilians. Ownership of a firearm is conditional on a competency test and several other factors, including background checking of the applicant, inspection of an owner's premises, and licensing of the weapon by the police introduced in July 2004. The process is currently undergoing review,[1] as the police are at present, not able to adequately or within reasonable time, process either competency certification, new licences or renewal of existing licences. Minimum waiting period used to exceed 2 years from date of application.[2]

Sorry, from Wiki ( ) but this type of thing is usually accurate. Under this description there are lots of ways to fail the privilege of gun ownership even without institutional corruption and racism.

You also have to renew your license every 5 years (read reapply), with every renewal round, a percentage of people are told they have been unsuccessful and then their guns are confiscated. Arbitrary refusals are common. Those applying are white and those making the decisions are black. There is an active civil disarmament campaign underway funded by Soros, I did a post on that previously

The probabilities between being a felon or nail-gunned to a tree next to your wife and raped children - I hope it never comes to this in my country again.
