New Zealand Struggles Enforcing New Gun Control Measures

0

by Tom Knighton, Bearing Arms:

Many people in the United States have kept an eye on New Zealand. Gun control activists have watched and lamented that the U.S. supposedly can’t respond as aggressively to a mass shooting while pro-gun voices have kept an eye on the nation because we know how well gun control is going to work.

It seems that while everyone is applauding New Zealand’s new assault weapon ban, they never bothered to think about how enforceable it would be.

How’s that gun control working in Washington state after stricter laws implemented?

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

At the end of May this year I did a blog post entitled, “How’s that gun control working in Washington State since new laws were passed?”

I outlined how presidential candidate demorat Gov. Jay Inslee signed a bunch of new gun control laws on May 7 claiming that they would “improve gun safety overall.”

The new laws included:

Statutory law prohibits firearms to persons under 21 years of age.

“Come Heavily Armed”: Oregon Senator Threatens Violence As Governor Hunts Down Lawmakers

from ZeroHedge:

A standoff between Republican and Democratic Oregon state senators escalated on Friday after Governor Kate Brown (D) authorized state police to track down Republican lawmakers who have stalled a vote on carbon credit legislation by walking out and refusing to vote.

Under the proposed cap-and-trade bill, Oregon would put an overall limit on greenhouse gas emissions and auction off pollution “allowances” for each ton of carbon industries plan to emit. The legislation would lower that cap over time to encourage businesses to move away from fossil fuels: The state would reduce emissions to 45% below 1990 levels by 2035 and 80% below 1990 levels by 2050.

WATCH: ILLINOIS STATE SENATOR THREATENS TO CONFISCATE FIREARMS

from InfoWars:

Confiscation has always been Democrats’ end goal

An Illinois state senator threatened to confiscate firearms from law-abiding gun owners in lieu of a fine, in a heated exchange captured on video.

The argument took place last week at a town hall hosted by Sen. Julie Morrison (D) during a discussion on SB107, which seeks to ban “assault weapons.”

The “Mass Shootings Map” Propaganda Should Convince You to Carry At All Times

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

If you use any form of social media whatsoever, you’ve probably seen the scary “mass shootings map” published by PBS, leading people to believe that they live in a terrifying place and that strict gun control is the only answer. You’ve probably read some of the cries for gun control and the stat of “more than one mass shooting a day” happening in the US. To see this propaganda, you’d think that people walk around with Uzis, randomly opening fire all the time. You’ve probably had this map indignantly posted at you in response to something you said about guns on social media.

But, you see, the map is BS. It’s a big old truckload of baloney sandwiches, steaming in the sun. It’s a manipulation that is being used to frighten people into thinking they’d be safer if none of us had the tools that we need to protect ourselves.

Another Attempt To Deny Second Amendment Rights!

by Sean Walton, The Daily Sheeple:

Democratic lawmakers introduced legislation last Tuesday to end what they refer to as “special legal protections for the gun industry” and allow victims of gun violence to sue manufacturers.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) reintroduced the Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act. The bill is meant to ensure that gun manufacturers, sellers and trade groups are not immune to civil liability in cases of alleged negligence.

Democrats Introduce Bill to Bankrupt Gun Manufacturers with Lawsuits

by Jose Nino, Big League Politics:

According to a ZeroHedge report, this week Democrats introduced legislation in both the House and Senate that would make gunmakers liable for firearms-related crimes.

This bill, The Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act, would repeal The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act of 2005 that protects gun manufacturers from lawsuits. Lawmakers from two of America’s most anti-gun states, California and Connecticut are leading the charge. Adam Schiff is one of the elected officials championing this legislation.

Sorial who has been an executive with the Trump Organization since 2006.

Chiraq Mayor Lori Lightfoot holds “accountability” meeting after another weekend of gun violence

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

There is no such thing as “accountability” in Chiraq.

Demorats have been in charge since 1931 and yet the gun violence CONTINUES.

From MyFoxChicago: City leaders met Monday following another violent weekend.

The second weekend of June saw 39 people shot, three of them fatally. Police were also able to arrest 36 people on gun-related charges and remove 115 illegal weapons from the street.

NEW ZEALAND GUN CONTROL FAILS AS “KIWIS” IGNORE THE NEW BANS

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

New Zealanders have decided to ignore the gun bans imposed on them by the government in the wake of the mass shooting at Christchurch. They have effectively nullified the law banning semi-automatic firearms and shotguns by completely ignoring it.

Politicians are left scratching their heads and wondering why New Zealanders won’t comply with their authoritarian edicts.  The so-called “gun reform” was expected to rid the vast New Zealand countryside of most semi-automatic firearms, magazines over a specified limit, and shotguns. New Zealand’s political chatelaine, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, had an almost unanimous parliamentary vote to institute the gun buy-back, though as Liberty Nation Legal Affairs Editor Scott Cosenza asserts, “Buy-back is really a misnomer because the government never owned those guns in the first place.”

John R. Lott, PHD – Anti-Second Amendment Presidential Candidates

by Kerry Lutz, Financial Survival Network:

Dr. John R. Lott Jr. returns to the program… Every major democrat candidate is anti-gun and anti-second amendment. Former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been unrelenting in his war on the right to self-defense. But there’s hope. A case pending before SCOTUS could scrap New York City’s obviously unconstitutional gun control scheme. The limitations are so oppressive, draconian and overbearing that virtually no one can get a concealed weapons permit.

MORE GUN CONTROL: TRUMP SAYS HE’S “SERIOUSLY” CONSIDERING BANNING SILENCERS

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

President Donald Trump has already successfully gotten more gun control done than his predecessor, Barack Obama.  But he doesn’t seem to want to stop at banning bump stocks.  He’s now “seriously” considering banning silencers.

The media is taking aim at Trump over the shootings and he responded in a manner that would make any Democrat smile. “Well, I’d like to think about it,” Trump said in an interview with Piers Morgan on ITV’s Good Morning Britain. “I’m going to seriously look at it.” While Trump said he didn’t “love” the idea of a ban, he also was unhappy to see the frequency and severity of mass shootings in the United States, according to Bloomberg. 

PRESIDENTIAL HOPEFUL KAMALA HARRIS WANTS TO CHANGE FEDERAL GUN LAWS “BY PRESIDENTIAL FIAT”

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

A California Democrat and presidential hopeful, Kamala Harris is vowing to change the federal guns law by “presidential fiat” if Congress won’t trample all over your rights. The authoritarian senator claims she could impose “near-universal background checks” and close the “boyfriend loophole” without new legislation.

If Congress does not change the law, in other words, Harris will, although that is not part of the president’s constitutional job description, according to report by Reason It should be abundantly clear by now that Democrats and even some Republicans are coming for your basic human right to self-defense. Don’t believe any politician who says they aren’t coming for your guns. They are.

Citizens Disobey New Zealand Gun Ban, Only 530 of 300,000 People Turned Guns In

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

In March, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the “first tranche” in a number of moves to restrict the rights of New Zealand citizens to protect themselves with firearms. This move was in direct response to the horrific murders that unfolded on March 15. Coincidentally, this is the exact move the terrorist who carried out these attacks had hoped for and predicted. The good news is, however, that most citizens are refusing to turn in their guns.

Why So Many Mass Shootings? Ask the Right Questions and You Might Find Out

by Dennis Prager, PJ Media:

This past weekend, Americans learned of another mass shooting, this time by an employee who decided to murder as many of the people he had worked with for years as possible. As of this writing, the murder toll is 12 people.

Every American asks why. What was the killer’s motive? When we read there is “no known motive,” we are frustrated. Human beings want to make sense of life, especially of evil.
