    Just the happy egalitarian classless society we live in mate.
    Wonder how many political donations got made for that.

    I read no previous convictions, small amounts imported in six packets intercepted [probably re-ordered because each got intercepted in turn?], for personal use for his mental illness and not for reselling. Nothing wrong with the judgment, seems fair overall.

    The elephant in the living room is that such fairness does not get extended to everyone. Like an 18 yr old with a history of being shunted between foster families, with some sexual abuse thrown in. Such a kid will sadly get a harder deal by courts than this 51yr old (who has no such excuses, and has a proven track record of being able to walk straight for a lifetime before deliberately offending).

    call me a cynic but "no previous convictions " can translate to "never been caught"

    Id like to see a duty solicitor use this exact case as a reference/bench mark when their next client fits the profile : zero previous convictions, drug importation, depression, guilty plea from the start.

    I say let them all go free.

    If you want to do dumb drunk shit with firearms, repeatedly, and lie about it when you get caught or someone gets fucking shot, be Andrew 'fucktard' Hore. If you want to smack your wife around, just make sure to be senior in a major political party. If you want to smack your missus around AND then rape her, you need to be good at sports involving an oddly shaped ball. If you want to abuse a child and get away scot free, you better make people laugh for a living (and the guy isn't even funny to be honest).

    If you're an ordinary New Zealander, best you behave, because you aren't 'important' enough to get a pass... Just pay your taxes and shut the fuck up.

    I have it from an authoritative (QC) source that Justice Simon France is a tough judge.

    The case made for the offender must have been good for a tough judge to make a judgment in his favour.

    Link to Decision, a fairly short read. Key words: "bipolar" "period of madness"

    And @Tommy has just outlined exactly why you all need to support my bid for dictatorial leadership. We can all expect quite a few dramatic changes in New Zealand. Ill begin with force feeding vegans meat.

    Easy does it mate, I think there is going to be a lot of volunteers for ministerial positions. You can have one or the other!

    Actually I just reminded myself to check with the secretary about her opinion on ministerial positions.....

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
