New zealand bans semi auto rifles

Recommended Posts

Sadly we aren't even trusted enough to have a blow-gun in the UK never mind an assault rifle.

why not?

 

i have two for vermin control,bolt action rifle just doesnt cut it.

 

how many on here have a ruger 10/22 for bunny control?

that was the go to rifle for bunnies.

what difference does calibre make?

I’d say it makes a difference, a 22 rimfire is a deadly weapon but it’s not a military assault rifle  that can cause massive injuries and a huge amount of casualties very quickly. I’ve got shotguns and rifles . But I cannot imagine a situation where I would go to my gun cabinet to get a gun out to protect my family. In this country if you do that you know what will happen..... you will go to prison . This is not America , or Somalia or Syria . If there are armed men outside my house, I will call the police .

Not really being pedantic 

but no civilian has legal authorisation to a military assault rifle (only certain states in usa have full auto select fire)

 

.22 rifle 50 round mag loaded with high velocities will do alot fair bit of damage also

 

apples and pears i guess

Ted, are you saying governments aren’t moving to disarm populations?

When governments start to use the term military style yes

the canadian government is now trying to pass a law which they say targets criminals and crime, in effect its targetting law abiding firearms owners.

 

this trudope liberal government is going full on disarming citizens.

i aint handing over nothing

I recently read about feral goat control in NZ.

A 'standard' rifle allows one shot, the herd scatters and you schlep miles across rough terrain to locate them again, ready to pop the next one. Repeat as nauseum, until the herd is whittled down sufficiently. For the guys in that situation, a rapid fire weapon is first choice, and with good reason.

Fair enough mate

Let’s have it straight please 

we don’t have a huge gun culture in the uk either legally held recreation weapons or criminal based 

the u s does 

if you live in an isolated house in upstate New York , Zimbabwe, or sout Africa and an armed criminal gang break in your home 

you aren’t into 999 upstairs under the bed 

your locking a mag into your Dimarco variant and your cutting those c**ts in half so they never come back to bother you , your family or your neighbors again as within the full rights of the law . 

We don’t live there , we don’t have their lifestyle or their risk. Gun ownership is appropriate for the risk in each country imho 

no one seems to have mentioned that if one of the mosque goers had a concealed or overt weapon system , they could have dropped that motherfucker before it started. 

The only thing that stops bad people with guns is good people with bigger guns

To me it’s less about culture and more about freedom. 

Ive just loaded three semi automatic rifles iinto my truck. 

My 15 yr old twins and I are going to the range after they finish their chores. 

After an hour or so of them trying to out shoot their dad, we will go for a coffee / ice cream somewhere and ( hopefully) I will remind them I am still numbered 1. 

Why would anyone want the government (our servants) to hold all the guns?

i just can’t understand that thought process.

you dont have a gun culture but you have hunting as a past time.slowly but surely hunting with anything is being eroded by left wing snowflakes and government.

it wont be long before our children wont know about hunting and vermin control.

there is suffiecent numbers back in the UK who hunt and fish and plus the economy of hunting is massive,it needs supporting and proctecting.

i cant imagine throwing stones or pointy sticks on a pheasant shoot.

also over there is no gun registry of non restricted firearms,so basically anyone who has a basic firearms license

can buy whatever he wants and how many they want.

so when the government decides that some non restricted firearms are now illegal,who's door

are they going to knock on???

 

they didnt quite think this through

🤣

So, Jimmy Kiwi could have 10 semi auto rifles in his home, declare and claim compo on 3, keep the rest and the NZ government would be none the wiser ?

And they say US gun laws are crazy !
