New Zealand’s ban on semi-automatic weapons fully in effect

New Zealand has put in place a ban on high-powered firearms. With the end of a period of amnesty and gun buybacks, most semi-automatic weapons are illegal to possess. It has been reported that more than 56,000 illegal weapons have been eliminated through government buybacks, amnesty or modifications to make them lawful.

It was a complete joke. Government drops vetting standards as a result a crazy ozzi get his licence only been in country 5 weeks. Government then blames and vilifies the licenced firearms community the process turns into a shambles with data breaches of owners info, guns walking out of police stations and the gangs keeping there guns. NZ is less safe now with these firearms going to ground.

One man does something wrong (an understatement) with an illegal weapon and the legal owners who haven't caused a single problem get punished.

Total failure , thousands of weapons not handed in and as the inept student union that passes itself of as a government here passed the law before there was any form of gun registration nobody knows how many are still in the public domain. That takes a really special kind of stupid. The only people who handed in their guns were the most law abiding citizens in the country. A complete fucking absurdity. Never mind Ardern gets to go on US talk shows and be applauded as the poster girl of woke bourgeois leftists. Can’t wait for the next election so her party and it’s supporting also rans get the same treatment as Corbyn and co .

I wonder what kind of scope the gun has. And it looks like a bolt sniper. Or some kind of sniper gun.

Man, we better ban all those scary boomsticks. Who cares about self-defense, let's force all the criminals to continue to get firearms illegally or use knives, bombs, and chemicals while the law abiding citizenry will be raped, mugged, murdered because they have no way of fighting back. Yep, sounds like justice to me.

I guess they don't care about the safety of their people.

Of note is that the amount NOT handed in is significantly higher.
