    New Zealands Gun Confiscation Plan Breaking Down

    due to massive non-compliance. Nobody is turning in guns.

    https://reason.com/2019/07/08/noncom...ontrol-scheme/

    quoth the link:
    As of last week, only around 700 weapons had been turned over. There are an estimated 1.5 million gunswith an unknown number subject to the new prohibition on semiautomatic firearmsin the country overall.


    "In Australia it is estimated that only about 20% of all banned self-loading rifles have been given up to the authorities," wrote Franz Csaszar, professor of criminology at the University of Vienna, after Australia's 1996 compensated confiscation of firearms following a mass murder in Port Arthur, Tasmania. Csaszar put the number of illegally retained arms in Australia at between two and five million.


    Gangs in the island nation announced very loudly after the new legislation was introduced that they wouldn't be surrendering their own weapons.

    "Will gangs get rid of their weapons? No," "Because of who we are, we can't guarantee our own safety."

    some Kiwis openly boast of defying the lawespecially with compensation rates set well below the value of the firearms that are supposed to be surrendered.

    If New Zealand's political class had looked to the history of gun control efforts they would have seen that they were walking a well-trodden path that leads to a dead end.


    Taxcutter says:
    Yay! For ordinary Kiwis and Aussies.

    Great! But try and use them. Defend yourself with your gun from an assault or home invasion, and YOUR jail time will likely exceed your attacker!

    That's how the Queen's subjects are treated in the UK.
    Al Swearengen: What's your partner so mad about all the time?
    Sol Star: He's not mad.
    Al Swearengen: He's got a mean way of being happy.

    Chicago, where guns are illegal, the 4th week end toll, 6 shot to death, 66 wounded. By the dreaded misnamed, "ASSAULT RIFLES," none.............

    If assault rifles had been banned, and they are in Chicago, THEN the total would have been 6 dead, 66 wounded...............

    Oh, never saw that coming!
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan
