Are they just going to go after White native-born English speaking inhabitants, or are they gonna enforce it on Muslim imports too?
A future president Chelsea Clinton wouldn’t hesitate to try the same thing here, second amendment or not. They’ll wait for the right time to strike when the public outcry is the greatest and it’ll be done in an instant, leaving gunowners as felons fighting against an outraged public. Constitutional rights mean very little to zealots in power who are determined to take them away.
If that was done to me, then I would have no choice be to be the very best felon I could be.
The government is surrendering and giving the terrorist a win.
a semi-automatic firearm that is capable of being used in combination with a detachable magazine (other than one designed to hold 0.22-inch or less rimfire cartridges) that is capable of holding more than 5 cartridges; andSo, pretty much all semi-auto rifles and shotguns. Only rimfires excluded, and only if they are .22 and smaller. This a dream for gun control advocates in the USA, to be followed by a ban on ALL firearms.

The only thing that has changed in NZ is that the gun-grabbers have an excuse to grab guns.
So the genius politicians solution is to punish the innocent law abiding, disarm them and subjugate them to the authorities who failed to protect them and leave them helpless
This is what’s so great about the parliamentary system. An event can happen and a law can be passed in reaction to it in less than a week, turning law-abiding citizens into instant felons.
In a parliamentary system, the constitution is whatever a majority of Parliament decides it is. Double jeopardy, banned by the Magna Carta can be imposed by a simple act of Parliament; whatever Parliament votes on, is the constitution.
You can instantly see why it is superior to our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Since our Constitution is actually written down in words that many can read and understand, it is difficult for our betters to impose their will on us. They’d really like to change this, for society’s betterment, of course.
I always knew that New Zealand was NOT the place to move to or to admire. I knew it many years ago, even when it seemed that everyone else was falling all over themselves trying to get there, claiming it was the last, best place to be in the world ... LOL ...
I had a good buddy who was a USMC sniper in Vietnam. He once dropped an NVA colonel from 1400 yards away, using a Remington 700.
The Remington 700 has been a very popular hunting rifle for over 50 years.
So, New Zealand (and USA gun grabbers), is the Remington a harmless hunting rifle or an evil “weapon of war”?
BTW, my Marine sniper buddy carried a rifle with a wood stock, not one of those evil black synthetic ones.
that island is looking like free real estate to the Chinese at this point. Increase your native population and then wait for the right American President. Boom, new naval base and airfields for just dropping off some troops. You could even pull it off as part of a port visit.
Does anyone here honestly think that if a Muslim did this to a church full of Christians that the NZ government would be overreacting and doing this?
Still doing the will of the terrorist.
Tarant is in charge of that country now.
Another liberal fascist government disarms its populace and demographic cultural invasion and Sharia Law.
Smart move there!/S
In 4o years New Zealand will be covered with mosques.
The Government has signalled there will be further changes made over the coming weeks to ban all military style semi-automatics and assault rifles permanently.
While legislation is being finalised, the Government in the interim has acted to restrict the potential stock-piling of these guns, parts and high-capacity magazines, prevent additional purchases and encourage people to notify Police about their intention to hand in their firearms.
We will continue to update the public and especially the firearms community as required.
That, my FRiends, is how the Libs want our gun laws to work as well. Here today, GONE tomorrow.
Its going to spark a Tarrant Revolution.
Those who turn them in will regret it in a month or two.
They can do this because the NZers registered their firearms. The Gestapo knows who has what.
This is all a slow boiling frog maneuver:
“The Government has signalled there will be further changes made over the coming weeks to ban all military style semi-automatics and assault rifles permanently.”
