This is the face of government oppression
Try and kill a conservative who has one. Report back to us if you can.
Or, as happened in Australia, an unregistered firearm before the gun ban in 1996 tripled in value on the black market. Criminal gangs in Australia, of which there are several, bought many of the semiautomatics from previously law-abiding gun owners where they are used in gangland violence in Australia.
The same thing will happen in NZ, the government-sanctioned transfer of firearms from law-abiding citizens to the criminals.
Remember, as none of these pre-ban firearms are registered, the government has no idea how many will remain in circulation after the confiscation. They might collect a third and then declare the confiscation a total success. Just as happened in Australia.
It works fine.
I wish I could own a mass killing weapon ... but the maintenance and containment protocols make them prohibitively expensive.
New Zealand is just down the block from Australia.
Concealed carry could prove daunting.
Just a knee jerk reaction from a politician.
The gun is the tool. The person using it is the weapon.
That PM should let us all know when she can control and regulate assholes who use guns to kill people. She could make a fortune.
Until today, it was perfectly legal for a Muslim (or a Xtian, Buddhist, Jew, Druid, or Hindu) to guard themselves and their loved ones while praying at their respective house of worship with a firearm.
After today, they will depend on police to show up after a massacre to file the appropriate reports.
A real stop forward in the effort for religious minorities to protect themselves.
But they still have them….. “if we don’t need them, the police don’t need them” doesn’t apply then….right?
