This is a brief statistical representation of the evil of preventable pellet gun injuries compiled from information furnished to the author by individuals, as well as groups, in the medical profession in South Africa. It was hoped that an argumentum based on this freely-given and willingly corroborated evidence, and submitted by the Cape Western Branch of the Medical Association of South Africa to our Parliamentary Liaison Committee, would prove instrumental in bringing about effective legislation for much greater restriction on the handling, if not the complete banning of pellet guns.
