- Social media users had mixed reactions to the footage
A video has emerged showing a young schoolboy making authentic-sounding gun noises. The young boy mimicks different types of guns in the footage.
The video was shared on Facebook by South Africa Live and has received over 1 000 reactions. Mzansi social media users were left amazed by the young boy. Facebook user Brent Meyer said:
"This kid should be recorded as the default alarm at my house."
Others were concerned about why this child knew so much about what guns sounded like. Facebook user Mmahwile Mogajane said:
"Okay I hear u guys giving him praises, but how does he know all these different types of guns and how the sounds??"
Kgomotso Motong, however, thought the negative words were an overreaction, saying:
"He has talent, doing gun sounds is one of them. Stop being so negative he's just a kid."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that according to the Small Arms Survey, a weapons watchdog organisation, there are over five million guns owned by civilians, but only three million are registered and legally owned. Statistics show that 57 people are killed every day in SA, with 23 of them being a result of gun violence. These gun-related deaths are not random acts. There is a simple cause and effect – the presence of a gun puts everyone at risk of injury and death.
