    Anyone know about any changes to the law concerning AR's??

    I was in a Gunshop today talking to one of the staff I won't say which Gunshop only its in Christchurch and the biggest in the world this guy was telling me about changes happening soon he says anyone already with an AR style rifle will Have to register it with the police as a MSSA they will get an E endorsement automatically. Anyone without is not going to be able to purchase one on a cat A and no more semi auto's will ever come into the country again I'm hoping it's all bullshit I'm still waiting for my Cat A. Has anyone else heard anything like this???

    Cheers Antz

    There has been no bill introduced to Parliament that include any of the changes you mention.

    Should recommendations for law change come from the current Select Committee into Illegal Possession of Arms, it will take some time and several steps before it becomes law.


    Basically, the salesman was full of shit.

    Sounds like scare mongering to me. But I have heard something like that may be suggested.
    But that is still a long way from been law.

    But the guy at gun city in Wellington did tell me once that the Norinco M305 rifles were equal to or superior to the Springfield M1A, and the Norinco ones could outshoot the M1A.
    I think he took offence when I laughed at him

    This, so much this!

    Not saying it couldn't happen in the future- and that's why we need to keep a eye on The issue.

    Still, you should buy a AR because reasons
