    Nope, was it 30% of SKS known to have been imported that got "bought back"?

    Interestingly the firearms community (shooting industry foundation of australia) has the government and politicians on a back foot by campaigning for a solution to the country's massive illegal firearms problem, advocating for an ongoing firearms amnesty, as well as a digital interface re firearms (not sure what is going on about that):

    Those points are good to note.
    Nothing stopping us doing the same here.
    Will be enjoyable putting this government and future ones on the same back foot.

    That's unpossible. After guntheft oops buyback, no guns would be left of a mindset to assault anyone evermore.

    I do not want to diminish the tragedy of such an abhorrent shooting but I do have to wonder at just how safe and reassured the public of this country feel now, knowing that our government has done as much as it can to not take firearms out of the hands of people that hold them illegally.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    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

    Well. I remember the Government-of-the-day's crickets-silence about the perpetrators, when we had friends and colleagues killed and injured in the (first) Bali bombing.

    I remember - and you can still find online - Helen Clark's statements and actions.

    Not ONE identifying noun or phrase about who did it, and why they did it.

    Not even ONE word about who did it.

    17 years later - wall-to-wall anti-white (and anti-gun) sentiment in NZ officially and via media (I've also been keeping track of the news articles which matter-of-factly describe the sick clown Tarrant - wrongly - as a 'white supremacist').

    Why the difference in group-abuse? Why the difference in law-mongering? Why no censorship of the Bali bombers' manifesto and organizing principles? Labour? Ardern? Clark? Bueller? Anyone?

    It's going to be interesting to watch the media narrative on this shooting. Will they realise harsh firearms laws only impact law-abiding users? Or will it reinforce the anti-gun message, regardless of the difference between legal/illegal use? It would be nice to think logic would prevail... lot's of things in life would be nice if they were true...

    I had to walk up a road with a rifle recently. I got some foul energy from an old battleaxe on a mountain bike, face like a dropped pie all screwed up in an angry scowl of disapproval. Ghandi would call this violence. Her friend waved, smiled and said hi and I did the same back.

    Through out the past few weeks where the laws of our country & the democratic due process for changing them were hi-jacked by emotive irrational arguments, pre-determined political agendas and media publications that pander to the same socialist ideals, the general public were repeatedly assured by comrade Adern and Herr Nash that "the rush change and lack of process is quite ok" becos we are following the example of Australia. What a sick fuckin joke.
    If even one journo with balls and intergity had taken the time to investigate and report the facts .... that the gun death rate in Aus +/or Canada is no better if not worse than NZ. And that the much vaunted Port Arthur change and buy back did not casue any material change to rates in Aussie. The rate of decline in gun deaths in Aussie had been steadily declining for some years prior to Port Arthur, and the rate of change over next 10 eyars remained the same.

    My own thoughts about the mainstream media,and their sensationalist and saturation coverage of this (and other ) mass shootings,is not that their coverage is the result of these shootings.....rather,it is the cause of them.The people who carry out these things obviously crave the coverage and notoriety that they know the media will give them,so until this is stopped the problem will only continue.So really,what is desperately needed is controls on the amount,and type,of coverage these tragic events get.Most likely just a brief reporting of the sober facts,and then a news blackout....probably the best way to handle it I would think.

    Media Schmedia.

    I have long been in favor of deleting media from our lives.
    Well not all of it as it keeps the world in check! but regulating it so there are real world penalties for bullshit reporting!
    If I were an editor of a news paper, I would be embarrassed to let a typo or grammar mistake slip through to the press, let alone ill informed articles or bias ones!

    If only there was corporal punishment for such offences.

    Looks like a pistol or at least handgun calibre. See the twitter pic of the case.
