Gun Group Enters Politics

MEDIACOM-RELEASE-NZCOLFO

GUN GROUP ENTERS POLITICS

The following notice will be placed in all major NZ newspapers:

FIREARMS WARNING

There is a very serious threat to the continued private ownership of firearms in New Zealand, and you could be one of the 450,00 law- abiding people targeted if Labour or the Alliance becomes part of the next government.

The otherwise moderate National Government has called for registration of all firearms. Labour and Alliance want to take this much further.

Make the wrong choice on election day and you could lose your firearms. Registration may be followed by confiscation, as has happened in Australia and Great Britain. Firearms confiscation last occurred in New Zealand in 1974.

Responsible Kiwis are being made scapegoats for Government failure to get tough on criminals and for inadequate funding of the mental health services.

A vote for Labour of Alliance is certain loss of your firearms.

Labour proposes to register your firearms to improve the ability of the police to keep track of them and regulate better their accumulation and disposal. Alliance MP, Matt Robson considers that once we know where the guns are, we can think about why we need some of them.

ACT is the only party that rationally opposes universal registration saying "It is feel-good nonsense that will do nothing to keep New Zealanders safe in their homes or on our streets". With the exception of registration, National has maintained a moderate position.

Gun control is not crime control. Use your PARTY VOTE for ACT and your CANDIDATE VOTE for NATIONAL for the responsible ownership of firearms.

ENDS....

Gordon Campbell: On Tourism’s Endless Sense Of Grievance

Sad that a once in a century pandemic should have come along before the government had a clearly thought out plan for rescuing all the firms and saving all the jobs in the tourism sector.

Possibly because in the modern era, a pandemic had never before caused international travel to evaporate almost overnight... More>>
