So I’m skimming the news in between things that need to be done and things that ain’t gonna get done when I run across this FOX NEWS article about those Gun Grabbers down in New Zealand bragging about how many guns got turned in during a buy back program after they banned “assault weapons” following last years mass shooting by some maniac in a Christchurch mosque.
Plus a couple thousand here and there in a different no questions asked amnesty and some they still have yet to seize from gun dealers.
OK, they got 50,000 guns out of the hands of formerly legal owners.
It cost those same owners and the rest of their countrymen ONE HUNDRED MILLION New Zealand tax dollars to do it.
Let’s leave that right there because the stupid burns.
The money quote here falls right next to it, radiating stupidity with the intensity of 1,000 Suns.
Every single person on this planet who believes Self Defense is a God Given Right should take note of the irony that is off the scale of human comprehension here.
Police Minister Stuart Nash told reporters Saturday that criminals would find it harder to get their hands on assault weapons because they tended to steal them from lawful owners, but those weapons would now be out of circulation.
So their idea of foiling criminal activity is to go after the people who aren’t breaking any laws.
The government turns law abiding citizens into criminals with the stroke of a pen, and then blackmails same formerly law abiding citizens into turning in their instruments of self defense in return for their own money, in order to reduce the number of formerly perfectly legal instruments of self defense, so the original criminals won’t have such an abundant supply to steal from, to commit even more crime with.
You get all that?
My fucking head hurts trying to follow that “logic”.
There is some good news here yet though.
It seems about 2/3’s of New Zealand’s gun owners pretty much said Fuck You Mate.
But Nicole McKee, a spokeswoman for the advocacy group Council of Licensed Firearms Owners, said owners had kept about two-thirds of the banned weapons because they had lost faith in the government and hadn’t been offered adequate compensation.
“They never overcame being blamed by authorities for being somehow responsible for a heinous act of terrorism — something they would never do,” McKee said in a statement.
My hat is off to you KIWI’s who told them to go pound sand.
Fuck ’em and feed ’em fish heads.
Never give up the one thing that makes you an equal when it comes to defending yourself, your family and your country.
Especially when the motherfuckers are trying to offer you what was once your own money in the first place and at drastically reduced prices at that.
For those who seem to be a little slow on the uptake here, let me refresh your memories,
Now that 50,000+ New Zealanders are Fresh Out of the means to effectively defend themselves, I would be real interested in seeing what the crime rates are going to look like there in the next five years.
I think I can guess though.
