If New Zealanders are truly a FREE PEOPLE, then REFUSE!Why should a FREE PEOPLE accept "Collective Guilt", and submitto punishment for something they didn't do???
STAND UP, SAY NO, I WON'T!
So the NZ. prime Minister believes making law abiding gun owners vulnerable to the ramifications of crime by disarming them is a logical solution to the problem of criminality. Doesn't this blithering idiot know that Gun Free Zones are the most vulnerable areas ( schools, houses of worship, venues where guns are banned etc.) on earth to mass shootings?
She doesn't seem to grasp that,....making the law abiding population defenseless, does not make criminals harmless !We've already seen what their laws have accomplished and all she's doing is making it less safe !!
As soon as you disband your security team...you first. Problem solved, we offered to and it will never happen :)
they don’t think like we do-they are sheep
I sure hope that New Zealand gun owners do the right thing and revolt against their government.
They won't ... they're sheep.
No all. The problem is the lack of constitutional protection. If you refuse, they will revoke your licence and confiscate your property. If you are subsequently caught with an unregistered firearm, same, plus jail time most likely.
They should simple say "no thanks" and if the government tries to use force, then the people can surrender their bullets first.
Doesn't anyone ask, "Shouldn't we know where the shooter obtained his already illegal guns?".
One whacko does something no one else has ever done there, and government's reaction is 'all must pay a penalty'. Good luck with that, darlin.
"PM Encourages Gun Owners to Surrender Their Firearms"
Or WHAT ??!!!
They will use guns to force you.
Except if it's a Muslim terrorist event.
A government that does not trust it's own citizens with guns, cannot be trusted.
Isn't that like asking all drivers to "turn in their cars" after a drunk plows into a school bus?
What is with leftists and their fetish for punishing the innocent?
Will New Zealand take the path of Venezuela once the Kiwis are disarmed?
"Will New Zealand take the path of Venezuela once the Kiwis are disarmed?"
That does seem to be the natural progression of things now, does it not ??!
Mexico is disarmed too...can't you tell?
Yep, like your neighbor having too many kids so they demand you get a vasectomy.
its interesting that she didn't call for criminals to turn in their guns
NOW THAT HITS THE MARK.....and they NEVER WILL NO MATTER
Punishing law abiding Citizens, makes no sense at all.
Yes it does if your primary goal is: Control.
sure it does........ people just TALK and do nothing.......
Surrender you guns because someone else killed people with his. That way the next time there's an attack you will be defenseless. Well just goes to prove you can't fix stupid. Oh and the Guardian has always been a left-wing, socialist, statist mouthpiece
So the next time some idiot runs a bunch of people down with their car, we should all give up our cars. (Well, that is their ultimate goal, keep us from moving freely.)
There are bound to be a lot of Muslims seeking revenge, so this is an especially foolish time to give up arms.
ANYTIME is foolish to give up guns.........
Tel the PM, FU
Liberal Logic: "We just had a mass shooting spree which will most likely inspire copycat instances in the next few months, so everyone please surrender your firearms."
There's an Oxymoron if I ever saw one !!
MORON is the buzz word.
I can see your logic in an American context, but in New Zealand things are very different. It's a much more chilled place, there is much less gun related crime. There really is no better time to ban semiautomatics. New Zealanders could still have guns, just not the kind that cause so much damage so quickly. I don't know why that seems so unreasonable. Hi from Australia :)
While she still continues to retain her own private guards?
Law abiding citizens do not relinquish control because of a left wing eco facist murdered 49 Muslims.
Oh yes...like giving up guns worked out so well for the Germans during the time of Hitler or more currently Venezuela.............
Where is the outrage over Islamist extremist killing thousands around the world today, they are killing Nigerian Christians right now, oh, that's right, Christians don't count!
What is the voluntary surrendering of semi-automatic weapons in New Zealand going to solve? It is a knee jerk reaction to the problems being shown by radical members of a society. Seek out these nut jobs and watch them, do not take away the rights of law abiding citizens. The wrong people are being disarmed.I fought for my nation for 26 years and plan to defend it until the day I die.
"Knee-jerk": typical Leftwing solution for all problems!
New Zealanders, aka Kiwis, will regret the day they turned in firearms. Ain't going to happen here. One need only see the huge majority of county sheriffs that are resisting gun laws passed by urban legislators.
I would NEVER enlist today............ disgust is too mild of a word for what has become a social experiment.........coed doesnt work.
Do not give up completely on our military, libertyanyday. There are still parts that are very effective and lethal. Although the instances in which a combat commander becomes a little too enthusiastic and some wimp attempts to nail him for it, are a little disturbing. These kids deserve our support, regardless of changes being forced upon them by our idiotic Social Justice Warrior, dick wad, pathetic legislators.
Then the Prime Minister should give up her armed security.
She's too busy shopping for hijabs now ...
EVERY time there is a tragedy of this sort in any Western nation, that nation's government uses it as an excuse to deprive citizens of more and more freedoms.....Yet they still wonder why folks believe in false flag conspsiracies.
It's the Hegelian Dialectic:"The first step (thesis) is to create a problem. The second step (antithesis) is to generate opposition to the problem (fear, panic and hysteria). The third step (synthesis) is to offer the solution to the problem created by step one: A change which would have been impossible to impose upon the people without the proper psychological conditioning achieved in stages one and two."https://www.fhu.com/hegelia...
I'm glad someone besides me noticed
Disarm the citizens then they're defenseless....Next it'll be knives like the UK...
She should ask the criminals to surrender their firearms. Let's see how thar works out.
Gun control activists are now committing mass murder for their cause.
Watch out, people will call you a l e x j o n e s.
