    Indeed. I also suggested to the minister in my letter that; if whomever is making these decisions has that little regard for the law they are supposed to uphold that perhaps she should seek their resignation as they would no longer be fit for the job they are tasked with......

    As with all government departments, single people don't get prosecuted, the whole department does.
    One problem is tho that the type of person LAFO are are often not on any type of social media.

    I agree to a point. Fact of the matter is we have less than 8k likes on facebook, and there's plenty of NZ shooting themed pages who are in the 10's of thousands.

    There's over 240k licensed firearm owners, there's far more than 8k of them on facebook, without a doubt.

    For those who are not on social media, we have our website with email alerts and we are active on another forum, we're yet to be offered a home here.

    The majority don't know and don't care and if the change is going to affect them then they will sadly horse trade the rights of others in order to be able to continue on doing their own thing all the while thinking "it will never happen to them"

    If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

    I think a few LFAO's out there who have the mindset "it'll never happen to me" have had a shake up in recent weeks. Some are slowly but surely waking up to the madness.

    The majority of people I don't think are heavily invested enough into shooting to have the desire to get pro active. That's not a dig that is just a reality. It is slowly changing though. People I know personally who haven't given a toss in past years have got off the fence this time.
