New Zealand’s Citizens NOT Complying With Gun Law
Article from Reason by J.D. Tuccille.
Once again, responding to a horrendous crime by inflicting knee-jerk, authoritarian restrictions on innocent people proves to be an ineffective means of convincing people to obey. Specifically, New Zealand’s government—which also stepped up censorship and domestic surveillance after bloody attacks on two Christchurch mosques earlier this year—is running into stiff resistance to new gun rules from firearms owners who are slow to surrender now-prohibited weapons and will probably never turn them in.
Officials should have seen it coming.
“Police are anticipating a number of people with banned firearms in their possession won’t surrender them,” Stuff reported at the end of May, based on internal government documents.
As of last week, only around 700 weapons had been turned over. There are an estimated 1.5 million guns—with an unknown number subject to the new prohibition on semiautomatic firearms—in the country overall.

They do no have a gun registery in place so they do not know who has what but as we here in the USA do and when we do the background check It is suppose to be held for 24 hours and then destroyed but under the former Obama administration they are not Destroyed period Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat
“A man persuaded against his will is of the same opinion still”
Does ANY government or the police really expect a ‘free people’ to submit to tyranny when their firearms are the only means they have to combat it?NOT BLOODY LIKELY!
No guns, No revolt. Don’t give them up.
Doing the arithmetic, 99.96 percent of the Kiwi firearms owners have ignored Jacinda Ardern. Oorah
Every genocide victim wished he had a weapon. Never give up your weapons. I’d rather die fighting.
THEY WILL PLAY HELL IF THEY TRY TO TAKE MINE, I’m 65 years old and me or the SOB trying to take mine will die
When people give up their liberty for promised security, they deserve neither. When people give up their guns to be changed into plowshares, they will be working for those that don’t. A few bits of previous proverbs used.
Remember if your Government is forcing you to Obay then you are a slave and you are not a free people.
When the Government wants to take away your means to protect yourself and your family by taking away your Guns then you are not free any longer you will have very hard times ahead of you.
