In New Zealand, the far-left government has decided a national gun registry is necessary. They have been unsuccessful in confiscating (with payment) most of the previously legally owned semi-automatic rifles in the country. There has been massive civil disobedience among New Zealand gun owners.
The party line of the leftist government is there is no right to own guns in New Zealand. They cannot be entirely sure of that, because part of the new gun control scheme is to place into law the premise that there is no legal right to arms for New Zealanders. From npr.org:
New Zealand's government is planning to create a registry of all guns in the country and stiffen penalties on illegal gun sales and modifications. The move comes six months after a gunman killed 51 people at mosques in Christchurch.
Owning a firearm is a privilege not a right, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said Friday. That means we need to do all we can to ensure that only honest, law-abiding citizens are able to obtain firearms licenses and use firearms.
The majority of crimes that involve guns, she added, were committed by people who didn't have a license and who used guns that were either sold illegally or stolen
A New Zealand Academic, Alexander Gillespie, made the claim there is no right to gun ownership in New Zealand From pri.org:
Are there any privacy concerns about this gun registry?

Now, the PM says they do not.
Marxists got to marxs...
Hoards of gun owners lining up around the block to register their guns. I can see it now.
With the world’s “movers and shakers” setting up bolt holes in New Zealand to duck the wrath of the people they’ve screwed with, they probably want to make sure the locals aren’t armed.
How big’s your prison mama?
The PM just made a great argument for why gun licensing wont work! Its a real shame she cant see that.

They sure felt different when the Japanese Navy was cruising the areas back in 1940-1945.
Wonder how they will feel when they see the Chinese Navy offshore.
Seems like New Zealanders are nothing more than a bunch of prisoners on an island.
And the Citizens rightfully said to the government: Molon Labe:-)
Guess NZ is only populated with sheep these days.
Didn’t they already ban them and owners aren’t turning them in? Now they need a list of owners for the final step.

New Zealand has officially become a 1984 Orwellian style totalitarian government.
NZ does not have a formal, written constitution that protects the citizenry from its government.
PLACING limits on self defense; have they had THAT discussion, or are they HAVING that discussion?
“NZ does not have a formal, written constitution that protects the citizenry from its government.”
Then they may soon need something to protect the government from the citizenry.
New Zealand denies their is any legitimate use for firearms for self-defense.
