"Estimated 390 million guns" .....how did they come up with that number ?
They sure didn't poll the public on who owns what !
And "sensible" gun owners must buy from a dealer and the gun must be registered with the federal government
As has been said elsewhere...if legal gun owners were the problem, you would know it
The people I know who own guns are good, responsible, sensible people who you would want as neighbors
My wife and i both have permits to legally carry concealed, our guns are fully registered and we had to attend a firearms safety course to get the CC permit
I don't like carrying a gun, just one more thing besides glasses, phone, keys etc, but in the present day America where the george floyds can run amuck and the police can't/won't get involved, a gun is the only thing protecting my wife, myself and our home.
It's a sad state of affairs, but it is reality
And I will not give up my gun.......especially as the government has done NOTHING to remove all the ILLEGAL guns from high crime areas, except pass laws restricting law abiding people from buying guns or ammo to protect themselves
And the scum from those areas often prey on peaceful, law abiding people....especially those who are unarmed
Does NZ have a major crime element like the U.S. ?
I always thought that the whole purpose of having private gun registration & CC licensing in the 1st place was because it's understood that u can't seriously rely on cops being everywhere at once to protect u. What are u going to do in a crisis while Constable Dudley Do-Right comes charging to the rescue where minutes or even precious seconds count? Negotiate? Tap him lightly on the head until the lump comes out? Dim Mak touch? The answer seems rather obvious to me but what do I know?
