    So you have 24,242 active deer hunters only in NZ out of 250,000 licenced gun owners
    Altogether killing only on average 3 deer per year. yet some suggest they all need aemi autos. so 6% hunt deer. of those probably 80% would use bolt action rifles (my Guess)
    of the rest targeting other animals there is only 10,000 hunters of big game.
    of the 10,000s remaining hunters they kill on average 99,000 pigs or ten per year 60% hunt with dogs so normally slit the throat of the cornered pig.
    These hunters kill the majority of pigs Yet We have some suggesting they all need semi autos.
    Just for their safety though, everyone else's safety is less important than theirs

    Thanks to the Federal government Oregon (the state I live in) now has a several billion dollar cash excess which they will hand out to the Oregon tax payers in the form of a tax kicker. Trumps fault...
    I'm going to use my refund to buy a few more guns.

    Cool we will just keep on having twice as many public holidays as Oregon. how many public holidays do you have a year in Oregon is it still 5 days.
    Plus not being the place where they sentenced women to death for being witches.
    A higher min wage
    Lower unemployment
    Free healthcare.
    lower crime in NZ 28 times lower.
    332 times lower murder rate in NZ
    you are 75 times less likely for your wife or girlfriend sister or mother raped in NZ
    there is also 100% less Americans in NZ.

    Most people would consider being 332 times more likely as significant, but who am i to say Americans don't want their loved ones being 75 times more likely to be raped.
    or 332 times more likely to be killed.
    But for most kiwis the 100% less Americans is more than enough.
    Ps your av tax rate is the same as kiwis but you get a shit load less for it.
    Nor does Oregon laws make employers pay vacation leave at all let alone the 4 weeks everyone gets in NZ
    Nor does it entitle someone to get paid time and a half for working a public holiday let alone getting a day off in leu plus 1.5 times.
    Shit Oregon doesn't even rate in the top 20 states in the US let alone the top countries in the world for quality of life.

    Funny how You feel living in the USA qualifies you to have an opinion but not others.

    I guess when you have nothing to counter the facts you have to resort to personal attacks.
    Much like the NRA'a propaganda on how to distort the facts that you also use. (By shear co=incidence of course)
    If the USA really was the land of the free and the home of the brave you might be able to take criticism and make the tough decisions rather than pandering to the religion and a cashed up gun an oil lobby.

    I agree we have a Subjective Difference here - that's kinda the issue. You have one view on it, where regardless of the outcome you don't experience a negative outcome and you are disregarding those who have a different view, those who do experience the Negative Outcome.

    As for Grabbing a Bolt Action. You've got likely less than 100 Meters from the Herds starting location to where they become obscured - that's about 15 seconds worth of time - With a Semi-Auto in 5.56, that's 15 shots (Most of an Average Herd size), aimed on target comfortably. With a Bolt action (using the Mad Minute standard on an SMLE) - it's 3 shots.

    See the Blue line, with a gradual downward slope:

    Don't be such an idiot, firstly, it is GUNCERTAIN, not GunCertain, which is important, since it means Group Uncertain; ie, a flag to indicate that it is not certain that the group who claimed or was attributed to the attack, actually made it (a massive hint is that there are GUNCERTAIN columns for each listed perpetrator). This is why it is important to read things properly, rather than simply looking for what you want to see. Anyone with a pair of brain cells to rub together would understand that when presented with a database of 18 thousand gun related incidents causing death, it would be absurd to try say there were '14 fatalities due to firearms'.

    It means different and abnormal, which can be on a scale; things that happen more often, are less abnormal / anomalous you see.

    Which is not what I asked, were there none stolen?

    Identifying criminal element, and finding large sums of cash, while not insurmountable, are more difficult than buying one legally. You argument would have more weight if you accepted the blindingly obvious instead of showing your bias time and time again by denying it.

    Which is a logical fallacy, so thanks for proving my point.

    Quite a drop from 96 to 02 it seems, the rate halved in about 8 years, nowhere else on the graph does that happen. Did anything of note happen around 1996?

    Fair enough, that's why it's important to clarify things, Given the Context, it's not an unreasonable presumption, as for each perpetrator - well, that's whether or not each perpetrator was confirmed to have a Firearm - but, Clarification accepted: I'll re-look at the Spreadsheet.

    Like a single mass shooting in nearly 30 years - that would be Different and Abnormal yes?

    I know it's not what you asked - The NZ Police haven't published data to answer that Question. The important point is that they have not been used in Murders, in 30 years. That's the part you ignore. So clearly, that system worked and there was no reason for it to be removed.

    You can Google gang Headquarters locations. They aren't exactly known for Subtlety, Subterfuge and Misdirection.
    Let's assume the cost is double the current market rate - that's $3k for an AR-15, $6-7k for an AR-10, well within personal Loan limits, Even within Loan Shark limits (and if your intent is Mayhem, you aren't going to be worrying about Repayments)

    Again - to someone hellbent on chaos, not exactly the huge hurdle you are making it out to be.

    And we haven't even brought 3D printed receivers into the Mix yet.

    There's the same drop from about 1986-1994.

    If you flatten out 1996 (ie removing the anomalous Port Arthur Massacre), then it shows a steady, downward trend that pre-dates the Gun Ban.

    Also why it's important not to jump to unreasonable conclusions based on your bias...

    Yes, it's abnormal for NZ, but not so much for the world. Your truck example has never happened in NZ, and is abnormal for the world. So you see how one of these things is more abnormal than the other?

    What huge hurdle? I said it was not just law abiding citizens that would be penalised. As for googling gang headquarters and going there to ask to purchase black market weapons, are you off your meds?

    86 to 94 is about 0.65 to 0.45, that isn't halving. Or are you expecting the same absolute drop rather than percentage? Because you know that not how trends work right?

    It appears that I was wrong when I made the comment of the confiscation buy-back costing 1 Billion dollars.

    KPMG are using 2 Billion dollars as an internal costing figure at the moment. Perhaps they have factored in the hi-capacity pistol magazines which seem on the list for the "second trance" of confiscations.
    TOP QUESTION: Is it called the 'Holy' Bible because the story in it is so full of holes?

    Ah, but a massacre of the magnitude of the Christchurch one had not happened prior to to this year - but it DID happen.

    No guarantees a truck wont be used for the next massacre

    Yep, the type of propellant was the culprit - and was supplied as a result of a back-hand deal between a politician and a propellant manufacturer.

    Said propellant was not to the specs required by the designer of the M16.

    Who would have thought a politician could screw something up???
