Video: Antony Altbeker Discusses Gun Legislation on Redi Tlhabi’s South 2 North
Antony Altbeker, author of Fruit of a Poisoned Tree, joined Redi Tlhabi on her Al Jazeera show, South 2 North, to discuss gun violence and legislation. Prompted by Oscar Pistorius shooting and killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp earlier this year, Tlhabi hosted a show about whether gun legislation needs to be stricter.
Altbeker was asked to comment on the issue as he “has played a critical part in shaping South Africa’s post-democracy criminal justice system, and in reducing gun crime. South Africa has halved its murder rate in 12 years, some of which was related to reducing many gun-related homicides.”
