    Police draft : Consultation - Secure storage requirements for firearm licence holders

    As stated in the title, my wife found this hidden away where we couldn't find it.....

    Consultation - Secure storage requirements for firearm licence holders | New Zealand Police

    We have until December 1st to make comments to them regarding it.

    One thing sticks out at me. There is separation of specifications for Rimfire and centre fire semi auto rifles. In the first section under "Wooden lockers and under Gun racks, it states

    1) Used only for Shotguns and Bolt action rifles
    2) Not being used for the secure storage of centre fire or rim fire semi automatic rifles

    Does this separation hint at a separation on endorsements to follow?

    How is a Semi automatic 22 become more dangerous than a semi automatic shotgun? If it is suitable for one, why not the other?

    this is a draft and they have implied that we have a chance to make a difference. Whther they will listen or not, your guess is as good as mine. But we can try.

    "Feedback is to be provided to secure.storage.firearms@police.govt.nz (link sends e-mail) by 1 December 2017. Please put “Secure Storage” in the subject line of your email and please remember to advise which draft document you’re commenting on." Quoted from their website News and updates | New Zealand Police
