What is Gun Owners South Africa’s (GOSA) role and purpose?
GOSA is a South African firearms rights organisation that does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, political affiliation, socio-economic circumstances, religion, age or any other identifiable criteria. We believe that firearm rights are civil rights and that firearm ownership should be a basic human right. It’s a proven fact that a firearm is the most effective tool to protect our constitutionally enshrined right to safety of the person. It’s also a human right explicitly mentioned and protected by the European Convention on Human Rights.
GOSA is the gun lobby in South Africa and fights for firearm ownership for all in South Africa. We are a membership-based, non-profit company with over 55 000 members.
