Deplorable, Rural, Kiwis Just Say No To Gun Ban. “Out of my cold, dead hands.”

New Zealand politicians who rushed to enact nationwide gun confiscation following the Christchurch mosque massacres are befuddled by the lack of enthusiasm from citizens who have yet to comply with the new law. 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.

Two months ago, Reuters breathlessly reported, “New Zealand police expect tens of thousands of firearms to be surrendered by a guns buy-back scheme.” Law enforcement authorities averred that “it could be more.” Pregnant with the expectation that gun owners would trade their firearms for cash, the political class is nonplussed by the results.

I wonder why the fascination with New Zealand's political agenda(s) which we have no control over whatsoever, especially when we can't get a handle on our country's National or State firearms agendas...
sigh...

Learn about casuistry and that it is susceptible to abuse when analogies between cases are corrupt.

NZ gun control is analogous to gun control

Analogous in NZ on their gun buy program means what to stopping Extreme Risk Protective Orders, or IL/CA/DC/ad nauseam firearm control issues, or LA parishes gun control ordinances, or any of this nation’s real or imagined federal/state/local gun control issues?

Apples to cumquats as you highlite a singular self govern’d country against this nation comprised of 50 self governed states.
