    Non Constructive Post Only Posted to Cause Controversy

    Court appearance for supplying guns used in double slaying

    Court appearance for supplying guns used in double slaying - NZ Herald

    A man alleged to have supplied firearms to Quinn Patterson, who shot and killed a Northland rental agent and her daughter, has made a brief court appearance.

    Michael John Hayes appeared in the Whangarei District Court on Monday morning for a case review hearing.

    However, the Crown asked for a two-week adjournment, which was granted by Judge Sinclair.

    Hayes, 61, previously pleaded not guilty to the charges and will return to court next month.

    This morning he stood in the dock wearing a black suit and tie.

    Hayes is charged with three counts of unlawful possession of a military-style semi-automatic weapon (MSSA), three counts of supplying an MSSA to an unlicensed person, and three counts of supplying firearms to an unlicensed person.

    The firearms alleged supplied included a Mossburg 12-gauge shotgun, Gevarm .22 calibre rifle, AK-47 replica semi-automatic rifle, and Saiga 12-gauge shotgun, 7.62 calibre rifle with various rounds and magazines.

    Property manager Wendy Campbell and her daughter, Natanya, were shot and killed when they went to visit Patterson at a Mount Tiger Rd address on July 26. Contractor Jeff Pipe was also wounded.

    Patterson's badly burned remains were recovered from the charred wreck of his rented home, though it has not yet been ruled how he died.

    Postings news articles without any comment is not very helpful but also not particularly controversial as far as I can see? Not doing a very good job if that’s the intent

    You could read the article and make up your own mind without me commenting.

    Or do you need someone to help you understand what's written in the article?

    It was Dons socks I was talking about.
    Big Obama Clinton scandel gets uncovered and the media decide Don wearing odd socks is more newsworthy.

    Here's another interesting read from Stuff:

    Man suffers facial injuries after being shot by police in Christchurch suburb | Stuff.co.nz

    Of interest is that the original report mentioned an officer fired at the crim 7, yes seven, times and managed to inflict a single
    non fatal headwound.

    The joys of online editing!

    Perhaps I should start a new thread about Police firearms training.................

    Possibly this is also non-constructive?

    Obviously the alleged firearms supplier was not a "fit and proper person" who had been in lawful possession of the allegedly supplied guns to begin with.

    So largely irrelevant to this forum, no?
    Guns don't kill people - drivers do.

    If he had a licence would he not still be considered a fit and proper person until he's convicted in a court of law or his licence is revoked?

    If the allegations are true, then he is certainly not the first licence holder to supply guns to shitbags.
