Police Minister Bheki Cele ideally wants South Africans not to own firearms. In a country rated as one of the most violent in the world; where crime and murder rates sometimes outstrip some war zones and where the safety of citizens is often in their own hands, Carte Blanche asks how it would impact the pervasive climate of crime in the country.

Director of the Safety and Violence Initiative, Dr Guy Lamb, was brought on as a consultant to discuss firearms and disarmament.
