    Kaitaia Gun Club burnt down

    Kaitaia Gun Club burnt down, sounds like a suspicious fire, barely making the news.

    Yep, I was told by a Policeman who is a mate.

    Only in Australian media for goodness sake!

    If worse comes to worst and semi-automatic owners are legally ordered to hand them in. Will it involve running the gauntlet to get into the Police station?

    It was on the National Radio news
    They clearly pointed out the irony that it was a clay target club and only used sporting shotguns

    I think it is better not mentioned or it will spark up all over the country and we will all be at risk from the mob. Media busy pumping up the idea guns are a white male thing.

    Exactly. They are very selective with "minority. As in when it comes to gun ownership the suddenly only care about the majority.

    Good link, and some calm advice to people who feel tempted to react to muslim violence:

    “By acting like the Islamic State killers, people like Tarrant give legitimacy to their actions.”

    Farhad Khosrokhavar, head of research at the Paris-based School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences said IS had tried to radicalise the situation “by turning Western Muslims against the societies in which they live”.

    “The violent ultra-right, by following suit with such blind violence, has created this climate of generalised violence in which Muslims are expected to act violently against Western societies that in turn respond in the same way, breeding a vicious circle liable to spark all-out war between Muslims and non-Muslims,” he told AFP.

    “Brenton Tarrant has played right into this fool’s game, inciting Muslims to react in the same way,” he said.

    “Spawning an all-out vendetta is playing into the hands of IS.” Within hours of the Christchurch killings, jihadist sympathisers throughout the world popped up on social networks calling for vengeance.

    In his 74-page manifesto that was put online just before the attacks, Tarrant said one of his motivations was the death of an 11-year-old Swedish girl killed in a Stockholm truck attack in April 2017.

    The killer, an Uzbeki man, said he had wanted to mow down “infidels”. But responding to such an attack by gunning down worshippers at a mosque was falling into the trap set by jihadist ideologues, the experts said.

    In order to fight such extremists, one had to be beyond reproach, Chouet said.

    “It’s all about using the law, just the law and nothing but the law.”

    I heard on the news this morning their previous clubrooms were burnt down a couple of years ago
    Also there is a new suburb nearby. Thought of the Waiuku Pistol Club and how it used to be quite isolated

    They should come to the clubs I am a member at. They are both a veritable League of Nations.

    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
