"The fact is that the average man's love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary,
exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. Liberty is not a thing for
the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and
disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special
sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty – and he is usually an outlaw in
democratic societies." –- H.L. Mencken, Baltimore Evening Sun, Feb. 12, 1923
"Most men do not desire liberty; most only wish for a master that doesn't beat them."
-- Sallust 86-34BC.
GOSA Membership Structure
We are testing our paid membership model.
We will retain our current
Facebook (unpaid) membership, but we
are adding several categories of paid membership to enable us to bring certain additional
benefits to our members.
As you all know we have a legal team on tap who have caused the Earth to tilt on its axis over
the last few months. Thus far their work has gone unpaid but appreciated. Lest we encounter
donor fatigue we need to start remunerating them for their labours.
To herald in the changes the legal team / Team GOSA will now take the form of the Foundation
for the Defence of Democracy (FDD).
Our membership model has three levels, Silver, Gold, and Diamond. All levels include subsidised
access to the FDD.
Additionally, Gold membership will also include third party liability insurance cover to at least
R250 000 in the case of a legitimate use of your firearm/s.
On top of this we have Diamond membership which will comprise access to the FDD, the third party
insurance cover as well as legal insurance to the tune of R150 000 for use in the case of a
legitimate use of your firearm/s.
Silver Membership: R50 per month or R500 per year.
Gold Membership: R99 per month or R990 per year.
Diamond Membership: R150 per month or R1500 per year.
We have additional benefits which we are contemplating and will be bringing to the members on
a continuing basis, but these memberships will give us the funds to continue to represent you
in Parliament, with SAPS and other government departments, expand and increase the 'Girls on Fire'
programme, increase our positive media footprint, and research and publish our own peer-reviewed,
South African specific material to support civilian firearm ownership for ourselves and our children.
Please download the membership form and
return it with proof-of-payment to one of the email addresses listed.
