    No money for parts and accessories?

    I was just reading on the newshub app that the police are saying they won't pay for banned parts. does anyone have the link to the official statement?

    It's been said by Stuart Nash multiple times. They actually have to by law. All they are doing is risking non compliance and a class action lawsuit.

    Yep banning a gun, banning a part, both were held in good faith until the ban, they are both your property, govt wants to confiscate both, govt no want to pay for both but govt still get to pay for both.

    I have a British Army Osprey carry vest. Some of the detachable pouches are designed for 30 round mags SA80/AR15 type, never had use for them as I had to put bubble wrap at the bottom of them to be able to retrieve some .303 chargers put into them -- do you think I can participate in the Great Confiscation too, uncle @Beavis? It would be sad if I couldn't as it would give me something to do with my surplus property. Maybe they'll buy some hand grenade pouches too, except they are quite good for stripper clips.

    and in most cases we have the correct paperwork to say we could in fact import said parts ....................or someone has. Now that the rules have changed someone owes us a shitload of $$ for our legally purchase but now banned stuff

    Long time till September, theyíll soon change their tune after month 1, wen they have zero MSSA parts handed in, likewise if the prices for rifles are shit. As mentioned itís in law and we know the the police overlords donít know their own shit

    It states quite plainly,under existing law,that parts that are required to be surrendered have to be compensated for....end of story.

    Arms act says they have to compensate for parts. News hub interviewed nash where he said they wouldn't turn showed the clause in the sct

    I have a metric fu8kton of import permits that clearly state that this part XYZ is imported for an MSSA, can't get much clearer than that.

    Wondering aloud: if they don't compel the handing in of scopes, red dots, bandoliers, ammunition etc., then although these are now useless without the confiscated (I prefer 'stolen') semi-autos and other guns, they won't (have to) pay compensation, yes?

    They clearly only feel obliged to compensate just for what they make illegal and then confiscate. There are other expenses - ' inconveniences ' - but you need a lawyer to say how likely you are to get fair compensation for this. It would be fair of course, but the question is if that level of fairness is enforceable. But natural justice seems a good starting point.

    "Nash said a legal framework for the gun buyback would be established as a first step towards determining the level of compensation and it would include compensation for high capacity magazines and parts."

    was also mentioned that parts like suppressors and sights that could fit a cat firearms could be kept and not compensated for once those dangerous semis are handed in so you should have the option to keep fancy sights or hand them in attached to the illegal firearm and receive compensation for them also.

    "1.5 million guns in the country and its analysis suggested the buyback would cost about $726m" so my math brings that to $600 /rifle.... Anyone know where you used to get a semi auto centrfire for those prices that doesn't I clife the local gang headquarters?

    Rereading these figures .. 1.2 million firearms in the country not just those covered by buyback.

    $700mill at $2k/rifle is 350,000 rifles
