oscar pistorius family is in shock over fathers gun comments

Oh man… Oscar Pistorius' family cannot get a break!

By now, it's not a secret that the paralympian allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, and while he and his family are mourning, Oscar's father, Henke Pistorius is loosely talking about guns.

Henke was just interviewed about how the Pistorius family uses guns, and during his questioning session, he said:

"Some of the guns are for hunting and some are for protection, the hand guns. It speaks to the ANC government, look at white crime levels, why protection is so poor in this country, it's an aspect of our society. You can't rely on the police, not because they are inefficient always but because crime is so rife. I have been in positions where I can use a gun but we have been brought up in a way that we value the lives of others very highly."

Oscar's father was obviously not thinking when he let out this statement because once the Pistorius' family spokesperson, Arnold Pistorius caught wind of Henke's remarks, he said the family is "deeply concerned," adding:

"The Pistorius family owns weapons purely for sport and hunting purposes. Henke's interview with the newspaper was unapproved by our media liaison team. The comments do not represent the views of Oscar or the rest of the Pistorius family.

We are acutely aware of the fact that we are only at the beginning of a long road to prove that what happened to Reeva Steenkamp was a terrible accident and that Oscar never intended to harm her, let alone cause her death.

As a family, and Oscar in particular, we will never be the same after the tragic events on 14 February this year. We are still in deep mourning, trying to come to terms with what happened. For this reason and out of respect for the Steenkamp family, the Pistorius family will not grant any media interviews at this time."

Hopefully what Pistorius' dad said doesn't make this case crazier because Oscar is already looked down on as it is.

Next time, Henke should really think before he speaks!!

  1. 1

    Unless he believes his son to be guilty and is merely saying what he believes. Which is his right. Just because your kid is facing the music for something horrible they did, doesn't mean you have to put your own morals for right and wrong away.
    Also, South Africa IS very dangerous and one DOES have to look out for one's own saftey much of the time.
