Yeah. That guy and his supporters piss me off as much as what's happening in my own country.


Sure is, he was here in Melbourne for a right-wing rally unfortunately. An unintended result of the 'dual citizen crisis'. He only received 19 'below the line' votes in the 2016 election.

Says something when he is even too extreme for One Nation & the Katter party.....

The media & biased social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube just hide it from you so you don't really care/grasp the seriousness of the problem.


I don't want to watch the video, or see any pictures of this hideous crime. I have never watched the videos of ISIS beheading Christians. Why are videos and pictures necessary when the description of what happened is graphic enough??

That’s what the PM has said, there are very few of these weapons in NZ so its not going to make a lot of difference, I’ve never seen one in a gun shop. My cousin has an AR-15 but he has a reason for it, he’s a contracted pest controller, the Department of Conservation pays him to cull invasive species, quite often from a helicopter.

Qantas is reportedly going to strip Fraser Anning of his Chairman's Lounge membership:

https://www.news.com.au/finance/work/le ... 02396da85c

However, one right wing former MP of One Nation has described it as infringing his freedom of speech. I don't see how no longer flying in the ultimate luxury is a reduction of one's freedom of speech.

Maybe it might even make this guy a bit more accountable by having to slum it with the everyday Australian traveling public. I somehow hope I should never end up seated beside him.

Even the PM (including past ones as well) would be given a membership, but I doubt he would get much use out of it as any official travel is done on the RAAF VIP fleet. Probably the only time he would travel commercially would be for private holiday travel, etc.

Not quite. The proposed changes haven't been released yet. There's a serious chance semi auto centrefire rifles for Category A license holders will be banned. But we won't know that until the government announcement.So any changes will probably only be that. Not a wholesale firearms ban.

Otherwise yeah, our government has jumped straight to acknowledging the current gun laws are clearly not working as intended so need changing.

So she makes a knee jerk reaction which won't work for the next shooter since he will get it through other means and now law abiding citizens can't get them. all because of media pressure and disdain for the US.

The "knee-jerk reaction" comes from the NRA extremists who know automatic and semi-automatic weapons are made for only one purpose: to kill people, as many and as rapidly as possible, but still insist that any reasonable restrictions on them infringe on "their rights" (presumably, to kill people, as many and as rapidly as possible). It is ridiculous to argue that our Founding Fathers could have foreseen the extremes to which their desire for "a well-regulated militia" has been twisted.

Indeed, what New Zealand seems to be doing is precisely that: regulating. Perhaps you missed the fact that 50 people were killed in the attack; she is making these moves in response to that senseless killing, not because of "disdain for the U.S." Not everything is about the U.S., you know. She is one leader with the (gonads) to do what is necessary to make these attacks more difficult.

It is a lesson more of our spineless (read: subservient to the NRA) legislators should consider.

Updated; ban on semi-automatic weapons is immediate:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/ne ... a86c2bf470


It's a bit more nuanced than a flat ban.

Semi auto rifles and shotguns with an integral magazine 7 rounds or less are still ok right now and likely will be following legislation. .22LR semi auto rifles with removable magazines of 10 rounds or less are still ok. Same for semi auto shotguns with removable magazines of 5 rounds or less.

Manually operated guns like pump action and bolt action in the larger calibres are still fine.

The action today was to use a process in NZ called an Order in Council (think and Excutive Order for the Americans) to classify a subset of semi automatic rifles and shotguns with removable magazines as Military Style Semi Automatics. This change instantly made it so the only people who could own one had to have a Category E endorsement on their firearms license. Everyone with one of these guns that has only a Category A endorsement now has it illegally. The government of NZ will be setting up an amnesty and buyback program for these firearms.

Following this legislation will be introduced that will further tweak and tighten down gun legislation in NZ. Banning things such as 'large' magazines as well as any other attachments that have no purpose beyond hunting and gun club shooting. There will be narrow exemptions for such things as professional pest controllers and probably recreational sport shooters that participate in stuff like 2 and 3 gun.

Overall the changes are focused on removing the general ease of availability of firearms that can carry a large number of rounds and can be reloaded quickly. While trying to minimise the effect on existing law abiding firearm owners. Personally I think it's a good balance.

It is interesting to see what a government can do when its strings are not being pulled by the NRA and its ilk:

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Thursday announced a ban of "military-style" semi-automatic firearms and high-capacity magazines like those used in the shootings at Christchurch mosques last week. Ardern said a sales ban was effective immediately to prevent stockpiling and would be followed by a complete ban on the weapons after new laws were rushed through.

It is even more rewarding to hear what the people of that nation say when confronted with the obvious disconnect between "sport" and "weapons of war":

After Ardern's announcement, one of New Zealand's largest gun retailers, Hunting & Fishing New Zealand, reiterated its support of "any government measure to permanently ban such weapons. "While we have sold them in the past to a small number of customers, last week's events have forced a reconsideration that has led us to believe such weapons of war have no place in our business — or our country," chief executive Darren Jacobs said in a statement.

https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-new-zealand-assault-weapons-ban-20190321-story.html

Thank you, good people, for using logic and sanity - rather than dogmatic rhetoric - in such an important issue.

The United States has the Second Amendment. Written into the laws are protections for the right to keep and bear arms are not to be messed with. Some people have demanded this include death machines like the ones now banned in New Zealand. I would guess that the same people demand all guns all the time would not know how to properly handle and care for automatic or semi-automatic weapons.

It is also noteworthy that these nationalist hate groups are still allowed to gather and scream their rage over people having different skin colors or practice different religions.

Anything designated an MSSA is already banned from those holding a basic firearms license. To get the Category E endorsement you have to go through a tougher background check and inspection of where you'll be storing the firearm. Out of the many hundreds of thousands of basic firearms license only several single digit thousands of Category E endorsements exist. There was/is a loophole where you could purchase a firearm that met the Category A requirements but you could fit a large removable magazine into which was illegal to do.

In this sad case the shooter exploited that very loophole by having a Category A firearm on a Category A license endorsement but used a magazine that anyone could purchase but only Category E license holders could use legally.

The interim step that was implemented yesterday was to classify all semi autos with with any removable magazine larger than a .22LR as an MSSA which instantly made it illegal for those on a Category A license to own them. They're putting together an amnesty and buyback program to get them out of civilian circulation so nobody is going to be charged for now having an illegal firearm where is was legal. Right now anyways.

At the time the Bill of Rights were voted on and approved, the 1st Amendment Freedom of the Press included printing. But that same freedom, according to the logic of "muskets were around then, but not magazined rifles and pistols," in referring to the 2nd Amendment, then we should say that the MSM television (including Fox) and the internet should not be covered under the 1st Amendment. But is that really the way you want it??

But that same freedom, according to the logic of "muskets were around then, but not magazined rifles and pistols," in referring to the 2nd Amendment, then we should say that the MSM television (including Fox) and the internet should not be covered under the 1st Amendment. But is that really the way you want it??


non sequitur extraordinaire! You are really stretching to find an analogy that justifies unregulated freedom to keep and use automatic and semi-automatic weapons. These weapons of war are built solely to kill, but I have yet to see any TV show or website that literally fills innocent civilians with lead. And if speech become so dangerous as to inflame others to violence, it is not covered by the 1st Amendment.

wow.....

Maybe this is why the Founding Fathers wrote the First Amendment first and the Second Amendment second and separately. They probably understood that muskets and AR-15s and Barettas are useful for food and also for ending human life.

Amazing that you lot think having a high chance of getting killed in a gun attack is 'FREEDOM'.

You can still have freedom without a semi-automatic.

Amazing how fewer people were victims of terror attacks when there was an assault weapons ban in the United States. And lawful citizens were still able to own guns. Imagine that. I could ask a very specific attack question like you did but that would be rude.........

A gun grab is a gun grab. If NZ had a massacre with a pump action shotgun they would be banned too. This smoke screen is what hard liners on the left use to make you think they don't want all your guns.

The people and government of NZ have chosen to deal with this act of terrorism far better than most places, especially the USA. They have actually taken prompt changes in their gun laws to reduce loopholes as to owning certain military class weapons and large capacity magazines. They have respected those that were killed because of their faith and ethnicity in ways we don't in the USA, for example the nation joining in on Friday prayer services of Muslims and non-Muslim women wearing head coverings. The government leadership and local media are not giving the terrorist involved the attention they wanted.

We have had too many mass gun murders in the USA and criminal gun deaths in general and I wish we had leadership that would really take on guns involved and change the culture that encourages it.

50 People shot dead and the NZ government's reaction is a 'gun grab' / 'smoke screen'!!! There is no hope for society!!! Social media will be the end of humanity.

So she makes a knee jerk reaction which won't work for the next shooter since he will get it through other means and now law abiding citizens can't get them. all because of media pressure and disdain for the US.

Brilliant.


Just maybe the shooter chose New Zealand as their gun laws were more lax than Australia's (after Australia implemented their own knee jerk gun laws). And where were the law abiding citizens with guns to stop the massacre???

I would rather live in a society where guns are made as difficult as possible to acquire rather than having to carry a gun for defence in case a mentally unstable person goes on a shooting spree with an easily acquired gun!!

If the man was armed with a pump action shotgun capacity-limited to 5 rounds (that's the limit under Australian law) the casualties list would have probably been shorter.

That is a catch-phrase of the gun extremists who want you to believe any reasonable form of weapons regulation is a "gun grab". Yet we already have some forms of regulations; private citizens aren't allowed to hold Gatling guns, for instance, nor howttzers nor even machine guns, these automatic and semi-automatic's closest relatives.

Were those laws "gun grabs", too? Are you all distraught because you can't own a Gatling gun? Do you cry at night because there are no machine guns in your household? Have rallys demanding some nefarious government agency give you back your rights to shoot howitzers? Banning a firearm because of its excessive killing power is not a "gun grab"; it is the right thing to do - to protect all Americans.

You worry about your right to have a war weapon in your household. I worry about my right - and my family's right, my friend's rights, and my fellow citizens' rights - to live. I think that should trump (no pun intended) your firearms obsession.

The United States had a "gun grab" called Assault Weapons Ban. And, guess what? Mass shootings went down. Not only that, but we Americans still had access to guns!

https://www.statista.com/chart/12943/is ... apons-ban/

When the NRA backed Republicans allowed the Assault Weapons Ban to expire, guess what? Mass shootings WENT UP!

The reaction would have been the same. Ban the gun that did it. If you are telling me otherwise sorry but you are wrong. If a bolt action rifle is used it will be long guns etc. The end game is to get rid of all guns. I am glad we have a 2nd amendment and don't have a leader that knee jerks rights away from people.

That's a great conspiracy theory... but not supported by the facts. When the USA had a ban on assault weapons, was there any attempt to "grab all guns"?

Remember the USA has three branches of government and needs the votes to pass law and a president to sign it. Feinstein said it if she had the votes she would have done it. The Dems want to do it. Yet know the fight they would have if they dare go over that line.

So one - count 'em - one! - Senator wanted (in 1995) to collect arms... did it happen? The ban on assault weapons was a very successful program until the NRA's corporate funders decide they needed more business by selling weapons of war.

Was there any attempt to "grab all guns"? I asked that... and all I got was a non sequitur. Not a surprise, but I was hoping the gun lobby cronies could do better...
