    I somewhat doubt hardened crims could care less about a higher penalty for possessing such things......the whole point of being a crim is that they have no regard for the law.

    Of course they don’t,just look daily or weekly into shooting events in Kiwi.....the point is,...you cant use one paint brush swipe for all criminals vs legal law abiding gun owners .....this is where the issue is.There has to be defining guidelines for each,they are literally pissing into the wind trying to make it right.

    I sometimes think Pollies go out of their way to make themselves look stupid. All its takes is a quiet common sense chat with a pet FAL holder, gunsmith or say COLFO to get any idea how stupid an idea is. The next and real Q is where did the idea originate? and why?

    However really after my poor experience with an ex-green MP wanker they are not after honest / truth they are only after info to support their agenda. Sadly you cant negotiate/persuade ppl like this you just have to fight them tooth and nail in public as making them look like fools is about the only way you can beat them.
