New police policies for the approval of “A Cat” firearms to enter the approved firearms list. Be warned – this affects all NZ licensed gun owners!
The two most worrying policies are:
1) “A Cat” firearms must now have a civilian use which police approve of.This gives police complete control over what you do and what you shoot.
2) Incomplete firearms – eg AR15 receivers, rifle chassis must be assembled into their complete format. Once approved, that receiver/chassis is only allowed to be sold in that complete format. This means with brand X rail, Model Y trigger, model Z stock. The receiver/chassis can not be sold in any other configuration.
The document then goes on to elaborate on MSSA length policies.
1) Length is measured collapsed. Under 762mm your gun is a pistol.
2) If you purchased an MSSA under the old police approved policy and you cant make the gun comply you must hand it in for destruction without compensation.
A question to our politicians – Paula Bennett , Ron Mark – NZ First MP, Richard Prosser MP – New Zealand First List MP, David Seymour. At what point does your party stand up to Police policy makers and stop them from hounding 250,000 licenced firearm owners with ultra vires policies that do nothing to prevent crime?
A question to former head of gun control Joe Green – how do you feel about your legacy of repport with all NZ licenced firearm owners being thrown out the window?
