    Hey......that gun control is working just as planned.....only cops and criminals will have guns.....

    Police 'visibly upset', cars riddled with bullet holes after Tauranga shooting

    Police vehicles were riddled with bullet holes and officers left "visibly upset" after a Tauranga shootout with a man driving a vehicle connected to a double homicide.

    At around 7:40pm on Thursday night, officers spotted a vehicle believed to be connected to the death of two people in Omanawa on Tuesday. After activating their lights and sirens, the vehicle fled.
    ------
    Speaking to media on Friday, Tauranga's District Commander Superintendent Andy McGregor said the offender in the fleeing vehicle fired at officers on numerous occasions.

    "Along Carmichael Rd, the driver leaned out of the driver's door and fired a volley of shots at the police vehicle. He did this on numerous occasions," he said.

    "At one stage, he actually stopped the vehicle, got out, and took deliberate aim at the police vehicle and fired another volley of shots."

    Eventually, the vehicle stopped, but the driver continued to shoot at police, who returned fire. In the exchange of bullets, the driver was killed.

    "This was quite a traumatic event for the officers involved. The police vehicles have got bullet holes in them and the officers involved are quite distraught and distressed over this matter."
    -----

    Tauranga's Mayor Tenby Powell blames gangs for a recent spike in violence in the Tauranga area.

    In particular, he points to a correlation with the arrival of so-called '501s' - Kiwi gang members deported from Australia - and a growing level of "sophistication" for criminals here.

    "Things have changed. Not just here in Tauranga but in New Zealand. With the 501 deportees coming out of Australia, the level of sophistication they bring, the level of violence they bring, and the frequency of which we're seeing it," Powell told The AM Show on Friday.

    He says he is not specifically blaming the 501s for this week's violence, but says there has been a "dynamic change" with gangs acting more brazenly.

    "And as we saw last night, as we've seen over the last two or three weeks, [they're] absolutely prepared to take a fight to the police."

    And a reduced rate of mass shootings. Works like a charm. We might have to do something about those Australian arseholes though, with nothing New Zealand about them but their lack of Australian citizenship.

    Moron......these guys had illegal guns.......and New Zealanders have more guns than Australians but fewer public shootings...how do you explain that? You can't. Cause you don't understand the issue.

    How are Australian criminals in New Zealand getting illegal guns in New Zealand when New Zealand is essentially a big island? You can't explain that.......
