    That's what happens when you don't have a Second Amendment.

    I can only imagine how much harder it would be in America. And if there is a better argument against registrations than this article, I haven’t seen it.

    New Zealand has 1.5 million fire arms, the US has 300 million.

    Keep in mind that they have 6 more months of amnesty before they are actually required by law to turn them in.

    New Zealand's population is about 4 million. I spent 6 months working on both islands and never did find an adult male who did not own a firearm.

    I hate the term “buy back.”

    The government never issued or sold you the firearm. They were never involved in the sale of the firearm. They aren’t “buying” anything “back.”

    Call it what it is. Weapon Seizure or forced sale.

    NZ and others places and politicians just can not see that every time they put another law into effect or make a gun free zone, they are actually aiding the criminal, when he or she goes on a murder/crime spree.
    The criminal knows that it will take a longer period of time for any armed person or LE to respond to stop them. So these laws and bans actually make and give the criminal more time to carry on their rampage. Politicians never learn, nor see what and how they are really doing and aid the criminal more than they ever even bother them. Criminals should really thank them of helping in their crimes.

    They don’t care about that. The truth is that politicians who are inclined to want to ban guns are not concerned with what criminals are doing, they’re concerned about people like you and me.

    Man. that's rich, they pass a law for you to turn in your SEMI Automatic weapon, you don't, and now you're a criminal. If prosecuted, then you are a Felon, as a felon you are not allowed to own any weapons, unless of course, you're a Don't care what they say criminal, reference the shooters of Chicago. Fifty shot last weekend.

    Not only stock up, but also do as many did in some of the war periods, squirrel away and go underground, for the time when resistance is called upon.
