    In New Zealand, Only 530 Semi-Automatic Guns Turned In Under Ban Law, Out of Hundreds of Thousands

    New figures show gun owners are holding back on handing in their firearms, because they're waiting to hear how much the Government will pay for them

    Figures released to Newstalk ZB by the New Zealand Police showed that, as of Sunday night, only 530 guns had been handed in since the ban on semi-automatic guns was finalised in early April.

    There are around 250,000 licenced firearm holders in New Zealand and it's estimated as many as 300,000 guns could now be illegal.

    Can you imagine in the US with tens of millions of semi autos if the stupid Moon Bats were ever able to get a ban how many would be turned in? About four, maybe.

    The Black Market for illegal guns would be unbelievable. The Mexicans would be doing more gun running than drugs.

    -------------------------------- i'm not impressed as the only reason they aren't turning in the guns is because the 'wusse new zealanders' want to see how much money their rulers will pay for the guns . I didn't look at the link but got my info from the plain wording in the OP .

    looks like the 'new zealanders' are nasty old money grubbers just like many in the USA . There is no Freedom and RIGHTS principles involved in this ignoring of the 'lefty chicks gov' orders to disarm .

    No one needs semi-automatic weapons - except in case of war or terror. Such weapons are only for professionals and not for private use. New Zealand is a role model for all countries in the world, when such a terrible and unpredictable horror attack will happen. It's not over yet. I'm sure New Zealand will continue the good way. The way to heaven is a small winding road and not the US-american highway to a hell of weapons. Long live New Zealand - god bless you. I wish everyone a good travel to New Zealand and a nice visit there - in this wonderful country on the other side of the world.

    As you know, knee-jerk leftists, never letting a tragedy go to waste, deliberately over-reacted to the recent mass shooting in NZ by banning 'assault weapons' with the requirement for current owners to turn in their rifles on for before Sept 30 2019.
    New Zealand Parliament votes 119-1 to ban assault weapons, less than a month after a mass shooting

    NZ authorities expected "tend of thousands" of these weapons to be turned intl through the buy-back program offered under the new law.

    As of 5/28, a whopping 530 of a supposed 300,000 guns (owned by a supposed 250,000 people) have been turned in.

    This is New Zealand.
    Imagine America.

    Only 700 so far......... :eusa_dance::eusa_dance::bye1:

    https://reason.com/2019/07/08/noncompliance-kneecaps-new-zealands-gun-control-scheme/

    So.....how st00pid are the gun grabbers? This same thing happened after Cuomo signed NYSAFE in 2013....nobody cared. Only 3% complied and the rest kept their firesticks. Doy......only progressives do shit with good intentions and never consider what the results might be.:coffee:

    Offuckingcourse the people were not going to turn their guns in!
