What is Paratus?

Paratus is a platform where you can read about the latest developments at the sharp-edge of the South African gun ownership debate. We believe that all people have the right to defend themselves and their loved ones, and that the most effective way to do so is through the responsible use of firearms. Firearm ownership is seen as a privilege by some, and as an inalienable right by many others. We fall into the latter category.

Gunservant rebranded to Paratus in 2017.

parātus m (feminine parāta, neuter parātum); first/second declension
1. prepared, arranged, having been prepared or arranged quotations
2. provided, furnished, having been provided or furnished
3. resolved, purposed, having been resolved or purposed

I am here to still serve my readers with news, opinions, and information about firearm related topics.

If you have anything you want to submit for publication, please send it to info@paratus.info

Paratus is still an entirely self-funded blog, where we write about the subjects we choose because we are passionate about them. This is also a way for us to counter the misinformation and inaccuracies that circulate regarding firearms and the ownership of them in South Africa, and the world.
