As an owner of a small 22 caliber bolt action rifle I am not affected by the new gun laws.
Still, like a lot of New Zealanders I am not exactly enthusiastic about them.
Our government should be able to come up with a more just way of dealing with situations like that. How about giving affected gun owners an appropriate time to register their guns and let them keep their rifles.
Okay, if they don’t comply seize the fire arm and fine the owners.
Licensed gun owners with registered firearms are not likely to commit crimes anyway. Is this an extension of our “life time drivers license” and the “life time fire arms license”?
I would like to think that we live in a democracy and not in a dictatorship.
