After New Zealands Sweeping Gun Ban Only 530 Firearms Turned In!

Since the shooting in New Zealand only a small handful of an estimated 1.2 MILLION firearms has been turned in. How small you might ask?

According to the 2017 Small Arms Survey New Zealand has an estimated 1.2 million guns registered to civilians. Of that 1.2 million it is Estimated that around 300,000 are now illegal and according to the NZ Herald only 537 have been turned in.

Though many media outlets are making it sound like gun owners in New Zealand are waiting to hear how much they will get for compensation from their government. The Police Minister said in April that regulations, including a price list, would be considered by Cabinet by the end of May.

We do not think that is the case. Nor do we think they are willing to turn in their firearms.

And why should they be? Especially since many gang leaders have openly come out saying they wont turn in shit! According to Breitbart Mongrel Mob leader Sonny Fatu is making it clear his gang will not be surrendering their guns as mandated by the New Zealand government. This comes after New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s announcement that “military-style” semiautomatic rifles, “high-capacity” magazines, and certain gun parts were being banned. While making the announcement, Ardern encouraged New Zealand gun owners to go ahead and hand over their firearms.

Mongrel Mob leader Fatu told Stuff, “Will gangs get rid of their weapons? No. Because of who we are, we can’t guarantee our own safety.”

Here is the relevant, actual, statutory language. You can see that it requires quite a bit of careful study.  From legilation.govt.nz:

R ~ Please note the terminology. Firearms. That is only a term used in statutory law and defined therein at the preamble. It is a subset of ARMS, arms with an adjective attached. they have convinced the general public that this is about firearms, rather than ARMS, which is an inherent right for the purpose of defense and survival. Those convinced that they are bearing firearms than just arms in the general sense think these statutes apply to them. they don't. if you didn't register your arm they can't touch you.
