    I'll be unpopular...

    I'm all for democracy and retaining our privileges, but if you subscribe to the idea that 'total freedom' is synonymous with a certain materialistic possession or activity, then you're essentially selling yourself away! ANY of our possessions can be taken away from us...so can our ability to do a certain activity (due to financial hardship, physical handicaps etc). But flexibility, mindfulness, the willingness and ability to adapt; we truly own all of that. I'd be temporarily devastated if I couldn't hunt or shoot or live that lifestyle -- but it would be unhealthy to assume that similar enjoyment cannot be obtained elsewhere in the event that life handed me a cruddy deck of cards or if a Hunger Games situation was forced upon the world...

    In that sense, I see the gun debate as totally justified (and especially from a democratic standpoint) but some of the emotion fuelled drivel being spouted by the likes of the NRA is akin to a little kid being deprived of their toy and allowing themselves to be deeply and emotionally affected by it. "We're losing our freedom!! Our lives are at stake!!" A bit of perspective can go a long way...

    Fight for it, but don’t allow the harrowing thought of losing your Tikka T3 to affect your libido or appetite. Your gun does not define your entirety...and if it had to, why a Tikka?

    Just thought I'd be comforting... Lol

    I agree possessions can be taken away, in the video she explains historically how this has happened. However, it doesn't mean we have to conform to anti-freedom agendas. That is not adapting.

    Why should we have to substitute for something else? I certainly wouldn't want to. Aside from your "cruddy deck of cards" I'll use your Hunger Games situation whereas that would put us in a dystopian future ruled by a tyrannical govt and I would not want to be unarmed, would you?

    I hear your angst on some of what the NRA spouts off but honestly, that is justified. Just look at what is happening here especially in the last 18 months with PNHQ and the main-stream media, nothing but lies & deceit. A total disgrace and very undemocratic.

    Points taken

    Yes, the NZ police and our government have a lot to answer for.

    Shooting and hunting make up a large part of the fabric that is NZs past and present, and it's vital we continue to voice our concerns about unjust restrictions being imposed on us.
