Given that the next Parliament might have a conservative majority that reverses Labour’s policies, that’s not entirely surprising. The one thing that will energize the anti-Labour vote is the murder of a gun owner during the gun seizure process, so Labour will likely tread lightly.
1.2 million guns is about 1 in 4 New Zealanders. 1 in 3 adults per capita. Not many western nations have that ratio ig guns to people. Frontier heritage?
I wonder how violent the current prime minister will get to confiscate guns?
