    Well the New Plymouth session is less than a week away now and they haven't published the location as yet... Assuming the location isn't too far away I should be able to make it along. Should be interesting if nothing else.

    Spoke to the NP District Arms Officer this morning -looks highly likely that the NP venue will be the TSB Showplace / Opera House T 11 - 12-30 on Tuesday.

    However Keep checking the Police page in the link given to confirm

    So let me get this straight. The forum is less than one week away and no info on where it's being held?? Geez that makes sense. What also makes alot of sense to me is to post the date and time before the location has been advised.

    I'm starting to agree with this deliberate thing, especially when you analyze the times chosen per district.

    so - if you want to attend and be heard , you will have to get over the fact that its poorly organised or advertised. You know where to look to find the information , make use of it and attend , and present yourself as a sensible person with sensible ideas and input .

    If we all rush in and rant at them that will simply play into their hands

    Questions such as;

    Whilst I applaud the principle of public consultation being applied here, I would appreciate some explanation regarding the process;re the timing of these consultations, and notifications of the specific locations?

    I can tell you the Wellington session is a farce, holding it in Upper Hutt in the middle of the day is just ridiculous. A good portion of the population heads into the city for work via public transport which gives them no chance of attending. But if it was to be held in central Wellington, we could get a decent turn out.

    I don't mean to be cynical but every one in Auckland needs to go down to the back end of Papakura. Could they not have found a more central venue?

    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

    Anyone got any suggestions on what to say. I can make the Manukau one after work. But no clue what to say.

    how about - " why are these meetings at times and places that prevent most interested parties from attending " and "Why does the NZ Police treat law abiding firearms owners like criminals yet ignore the actions of actual criminals? " and " Please explain what is wrong with the current firearms laws in NZ " and "When will the New Zealand Police start enforcing the law consistantly throughout the country" and " why does the NZ Police allow the President of the NZ Police Assn to publicly tell lies and make up figures to suit his own agenda , when he knows that information to be patently untrue ".

    Theres a few to begin with

    Manukau - Tuesday 12 June - 4.30pm to 6pm Papakura Rugby Club, 2 Ron Keat Drive Papakura ! So not even really Manukau, Papakura.

    Good questions @muzza
    @Russian 22. the question "what is wrong wit the current way things are done" is right on. The other question is "what is the point of this 1/2 ass consultation and what changes are you planning to make after it" and "can we quote you in parliament on that"

    It would be good to record it on your phone.

    "Manukau" as in the entire area covered by the Counties-Manukau Police District. http://www.police.govt.nz/about-us/s...unties-manukau

    The cynic in me says this whole charade is a farcical nonsense.

    I tend to agree but if we all sit back then we wont be able to complain when "they" shove it collectively right up us.

    The Police think that Forums are full of big-mouthed radicals - so my local Arms Officer told me the other day - so heres the chance to present ourselves as being sensible , reasonable , concerned citizens who also happen to have a Firearms Licence. If we dont take the opportunity then we will get screwed over......
