    I am not "us" or "we".

    I'm sick to the back teeth with the buy back and law change politics on here, and in particular the assumption that particular views that are expressed here purport to represent me or the majority.

    Those of you who constantly barrage the forum with protest comments, passive and non passive intervention strategies and in particular extreme or unlawful comments and nasty personalisation that I think degrade all firearm users - please note - I am not "US" and I am not "WE". You do NOT represent me. I am not part of a crowd mentality.

    Say what you like and "free speech" away on the gun law topic, but I am do not wish to be judged by association simply because I am a member here.

    I am an individual who participates in this form because I have a passion for hunting and am interested in sporting firearms.

    I do not in particular like some aspects of the law changes and I agree with some of them. I do have a voice and I express my view to those who I think I can influence on the topic off of here and discreetly. When I do this I do not claim that I represent the views of others.

    So you have nothing to hand in? Same as me, but I am deeply concerned this isn’t stopping here and could badly affect your interest in hunting with your sporting rifles? As it may affect my interest in collecting older firearms of bigger Calibres, and my interest in hunting with sporting rifles. @Tahr I, in my lifetime, have never experienced such an out of control, ruthless pursuit of any law abiding citizen of NZ
    By any govt. it actually scares me that NZ is being controlled like this.
    I would hope your contacts allow you to chew on a few ears, pointing out the injustices?

    People who have done nothing wrong but have a passion for something have been outlawed. How do you expect them to react?
    Yeah some things said go over the top but it is to be expected from people that feel helpless.

    Your interests may be safe for now. I bet you believe they will always be.
    But when they come for them what will you be then? An Us or We?

    We are supposed to live in a free world. It is what many of our ancestors lost their lives for. Democracy pffft!
    Their is nothing about the events of the last few months that do not indicate we are moving toward a socialist dictatorship.

    You imo have made it quite clear that you are no different to all the other people that think it is OK to destroy other law abiding citizens, freedoms, pass times and passions as long as they leave mine alone.

    Good thread.

    Well in future may I suggest anyone speaking their mind regarding naughty guns and laws in other threads, forums or formats put in a link to this thread saying you don't speak for this guy.

    So you object to being degraded by extreme comments made by journalists on main stream media, and by senior persons in Govt, various agencies and private entities associated with the failures that lead to the CHCH atrocities regarding the lawful firearms owners of NZ in the aftermath of the attack? Seems if you are going to object to one you have to object to the other as it's the same black cesspit of human nature - otherwise that makes you a hypocrite.

    I wonder if the author could point out and link to some "extreme" and "unlawful" comments please.

    I think one will cross a threshold in life when they let go of what other people are saying or doing. Even if people did claim to speak for you, which I doubt, so what?

    All gun owners worldwide are in the same boat, doesn't matter where or what or when, but governments and oligarchs don't like us. I think some are still plugged into the Matrix and either do not want to see the truth or are hoping if they put their head in the sand it will pass them by. There will always be those people and some people just can't be unplugged from it, so it goes. I have found there are just some that can't or will not deal with it, so you've got to let them go and just understand they are not with you but against you.
