Parliamentary Question: DoP: How many crimes committed using rifles


Ms D Kohler-Barnard (DA) to ask the Minister of Police:

How many crimes were committed with (a) R4 rifles, (b) R5 rifles and (c) AK47 rifles in the past year?

The Minister of Police:

Provision in the form of different attributes/fields is not made for specific type of firearms on Crime Administration System (CAS). Even if it was available victims/witnesses will mostly not be in a position to distinguish between these different firearms, as indicated above.
