    Good, Im not a fan of GC at the best of times, but all this woman has done is commit a crime against their company, theres not really much difference between what she has done or walking into the store and commiting a robbery to obtain a firearm, she broke the law to obtain a firearm pure and simple, I hope she is prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    I hope they audit GC to find out how may other bogus licence holders have purchased guns .
    Be interested to see how this pans out . I can see this impacting on future purchases we make online , wether trade me or a gun store ?

    The current process to obtain firearms by mail is ridiculous to the point of retardation. Very nice of her to point it out.

    Its quite simple to rectify the issue and something that I have done each time i have sold a firearm through mail order and thats to verifire the form with the police at my end.
    All 4 times i have been told this is not needed the the police have cheeked it at the other end, My reply being how do i know they didn't just sign that bit too?

    This also points out that having to give your name and address to the purchaser so they can get a police form filled out is flawed, when I pointed out that I was unhappy giving my details to a stranger, the local AO said no problem " because they person applying would have a FAL and would therefore be cosha" yeah right!

    It seems pretty straight forward to sort out first port of call would be the officer that's name and signature is on the form if that officer didn't fill the form out properly or didn't at all there's been fraud or using a document to obtain something illegally by deception I'm not a law expert but that's how it looks to me some one needs to be made an example of hope they get hit with a ton of bricks but our soft cock system will probably hit us instead

    what pisses me off is heathers comments , that she knew there would be a problem , but she says " a bit of bother" with the cops , she knows she will not get in any trouble

    Listening on Paul Henry, it's being treated as a laugh, it had to be pointed out for the good of the country, her lawyer saying there probably not be a prosecution because of public opinion being on her side!! And where does Greg Oconner fit in. Was it sanctioned by him before it happened? If so he should be prosecuted as well. This really pisses me off. Its easy to obtain many things by being criminal about it, and that's what she did

    Yep, pretty amazing that she happened to fluke a legit firearms licence number. Also very coincidental that Greg O'Connor is pushing the same thing. Definitely a Media beat up.

    Are those things illegal? Nah if Heahers doing it it's fine! I am being robbed with the line charge here, $2:35 per day, maybe Heather could look at that for me?
