Default Nz... Just banned 'military style' guns..burnie agrees<<>>usa is next

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand on Thursday announced a national ban on all military-style semiautomatic weapons, all high-capacity ammunition magazines and all parts that allow weapons to be modified into the kinds of guns used to kill 50 people at two mosques in Christchurch last week.

“What we’re banning today are the things used in last Friday’s attack,” she said, adding: “It’s about all of us, it’s in the national interest and it’s about safety.”

Ms. Ardern is expected to encounter little resistance to the weapons ban in Parliament; the largest opposition party quickly said it supported the measures.

Ms. Ardern said her goal was to eliminate from New Zealand the weapons that the killer used in Christchurch. She emphasized that it would require a buyback of banned weapons in circulation now, plus regulation around firearms and ammunition.
“The guns used in these terrorist attacks had important distinguishing features,” she said at a news conference at Parliament in Wellington, the capital. “First, big capacity, and also their delivery. They had the power to shoot continuously, but they also had large capacity magazines.”

Ms. Ardern’s plan for immediate gun policy changes, announced six days after a mass shooting, stands in stark contrast to the stalemate and resistance to change that has stymied similar calls for restrictions on firearms in the United States.

"Military style semi- automatic weapons".

That's a whole lot of guns, depending on how they define "military style"


And I don't see where that's limited to rifles. So are Sig and Beretta handguns included? They are military style semi automatic weapons.

What defines a military style weapon, is it one with a barrel?

Any freaking gun will shoot continuously and high capacity magazines are a wash:


Its just "feel good" legislation that will make criminals of gun owners and limit citizens rights.

The people of NZ are fine. Plenty of pitchforks if needed for defense!

Anything black and scary, so pretty much all of them to that mindset.

Emotionally driven BS that does nothing to stop crime, but just made criminals out of law abiding citizens that refuse to turn their guns in. Sounds like NZ should have done a little more research on the liberal bitch before they elected her PM.

It’s down right frightening to see liberal fascism enacted so quickly....

You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.

This is a reactionary type of band-aid solution that does not recognize or address the true root cause of the problem.

Common sense tells us that crazy people and ideological radicals are always going to find a way to kill, and an instrument to kill with.

All the more reason to not vote for females as they tend to vote by their Feelz rather than laws or logic. NZ does not have our constitutional protections.

Imagine how great things were 500 years ago before guns? I bet no one was ever killed, we should go back to those days.

Come and f**king take them.

Can't wait to see what happens here when dumbshit liberals manage to get something through that instantly creates millions of "felons".
