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?

And hordes of others are hoarding their guns.
Ready for a muzzie take over.
Sounds like it's time for NZ to have its revolutionary war moment. They are welcome to copy our Constitution to adopt as their own. It works for us but we do need to keep the commie dems in check at all times. Such is the price of freedom.
From time to time the blood of tyrants and some patriots is needed to water the tree of liberty. Paraphrased quote by Thomas Jefferson. I like to think the more tyrant blood spilled; the less patriot blood will be spilled and the shorter the war would be. Cut the head off the snake and it dies even if the jaws keep biting for a short time.
re: “New Zealand denies their is any legitimate use for firearms for self-defense.”
So, no “force multiplier” for old women against a much younger raping brute?

BTW, I had an older aunt ‘put away’ one of those raping brutes with a revolver years back ...
PM Jacina = Greta grown up.
Were a big meteor to strike Earth tomorrow, NZ is now right up there for preferred strike point.
Hundreds will swear they lost their gun to a crazy Tasmanian devil.
Plus the water is very deep around those islands.
While they are at it the government should be registering shortwave and ham radios, demanding a list of books in peoples homes especially Bibles, registering the presence of any religious artifacts like crucifixes and rosaries and installing government controlled thermostats for heating and air conditioning units. Lets hope the Kiwis have some backbone and say no to this fascism
I’ll bet cosmoline sales are up too. (rust preventative)
I’m not wasting any time on New Zealand. Not my people, not my problem.
Sigh... Well, there's always hope!
It’s very healthy for a government to be a little afraid of its citizenry.
Clearly NZ’s is not.
