    It was on the TV1 news this morning ... that the Amnesty for weapons ends tomorrow.

    So the only figures I could find for how many were handed back in the latest amnesty...

    463.


    It's even more pitiful than the ~60,000 that were handed back in the last buy back - at best, less than 30% handed in.

    Some are even happy to go to jail for a few months to get their fines cancelled. Go figure ...

    Fines are a good idea in principal. For those that HAVE principals.
    And what happens then, after Jail time or other consequences?

    Except the shooting part. Both parties (by their own statements and not one I agree with) would say they were dealing with an invasive pest.

    Not really, he accurately predicted the NZ Government's response, his hope that this would trigger an attempt to do the same in the US was a little hopeful - but the likes of the BLM riots - that was exactly what he wanted to happen - only he wanted it to devolve into a full-scale civil war.

    His imagination was neither huge nor demented - that is perhaps the scariest part.

    I've been quite vocal on my dislike of those types of people, hence why I wouldn't want to be anywhere near the Fuckwit.

    That's because yours was a Voluntary action - you chose to sign up, go through basic etc.

    Someone sitting at home, minding their own business to be woken up by a Gang Shooting - did they volunteer for that?

    Maybe - but did you actually buy the M60?

    And I consistently tend to disagree with you. As is my right. As do others disagree with you. As is their right.

    If a large number of people disagree with you ... perhaps you might consider that it is YOU that might be wrong.

    That wasn't why I joined. The action in question didn't "Officially" happen. There was no war. The "Official Secrets act" (of which I signed) ... prevents it being public knowledge. The full where and why ... you don't need to know.

    As above ... I'm probably just as much a witness as your mate. When the shooting started ... I didn't want to be there either.

    So ... you do NOT/WOULD not have a shared enjoyment of shooting with HIM. What makes YOU different to shooting with any OTHER shooter ... Only the target varies.

    Sounds like you agree with his aim ... (excuse the pun) ... or like his demented imagination ... you might have more in common with him than you think ...

    So ... Greenpeace need more wars to help achieve their aim ... (excuse the pun ... again) ...

    Your guess ... at best. The only concern is which group is it that still have the most undeclared firearms in their possession .. ?? Gangs or your average law abiding (sic) citizen ... ??


    Regardless of the actual class of weapons in their possession ... the important detail that actually isn't known (just uneducated guesses so far) is numbers. For EITHER group.

    Scary stuff. I've seen a thread about that on a firearms related site I watch, it's slightly concerning that there is no explanation of the cause. The round was a sub calibre, sabot style, armour piercing round, apparently a double charge should not be possible, so why the gun exploded remains a mystery.

    Or Righteous.

    That's also a possibility.

    Where you conscripted at gunpoint?

    Even when there was the Draft and Conscription, there were still conscientious Objectors

    How many times has this happened since you've been living at your own home? That's where the comparison pales a little.

    There's a discrete psychological difference between the two.

    Similar to why people will buy something that is 99c but not if it's a Dollar.

    You didn't pay anything to own it, you already owned it, postage was just to transfer it.
