Insane. Glad to see South Africa is on the right track. You can have NFA long-guns in the USA if you're under 18. But, you can't buy alcohol. :?
They've actually taken some steps to quell the violence for the World Cup, and it's next year, 2010, not 2012 - that's the Olympics in London.LJG said:SA takes crime rates to a whole new level. The rape & murder levels are staggering. I don't know how they're going to get it under control before the 2012 World Cup.
