Gun Crime is extremely low in NZ but they used it because its an emotive issue that comes with its own anti gun supporters group.
Gun crime involving rifles bought illegally on line is almost nonexistent, criminals already have far easier ways to access them.
Yes the system wasn't that robust but its not a loophole when you have break the law to achieve the purchase. I can easily drive at 140kph , that's not a loophole either its just breaking the law and arguably more dangerous to the the public than a random illegal rifle purchase. I can also forge an invoice and claim a huge GST refund from the IRD, also not a loophole, just fraud, the same fraud HD committed when forging a police officers name and using a false FAL number.
She didn't have to follow through with the purchase to prove the point but seeing her holding a rifle on TV is far more dramatic.
She has committed crimes and is clamming its justified because its for the public good.
Bollocks , its little more than a publicity stunt.
And for the record while I'm no Gun City fan they did everything required to under the legislation and are well in the clear.
Yep I wouldn't argue with you on any point you have made here 'sneeze'
In the race for the ratings they really don't care who they hurt.
What I find so disgusting is that HDPA owes a lot to firearms, what she wore, what she ate, even her spending money came one way or another from the barrel of a gun. Her father was a Meat Hunter Aerial shooter and Possum Trapper for many years. Talk about bite the hand that fed you.
