Right Before Your Eyes: New Zealand Moves from Bans and Buy-Backs to a National Gun Registry

New Zealand is on a fast-track to gun confiscation. Sure, they are saying that “there is a legitimate need … to access guns, particularly our rural community.” What they mean is, we can’t get them all until we know where they are- so let’s create a Gun Registry.

A bill introduced to Parliament on Friday would create a register to track all the guns in the country and require gun owners to renew their gun licenses every five years instead of every 10. It would also place new responsibilities on doctors to notify police if they believe a gun owner shouldn’t have a license due to concerns over the owner’s mental health.

Have you seen the ads on your TV with celebrities saying you need to talk to your doctor about how you are feeling? Do they have those in New Zealand? They sound an awful lot like someone is laying a foundation for red flag law confiscation orders here in the US.

I know people who don’t trust physicians to do basic medicine. Now they want to empower them to deny the right to self-defense? Does that include folks who are late making payments on a bill or complain about being left in the little room for 40 minutes to wait for the “doctor?”

This Was the Christchurch Shooters Plan

And it’s not like the shooter didn’t explain in his manifesto that he chose a gun to accomplish this very end. He did. The pro-China eco-fascist murderer (pardon any redundancy) chose the weapon to advance the political purposes for which New Zealand is now zealous.

I alluded to this inevitability in early August.

A rifle ban was followed by an order to turn in any weapons voluntarily. New Zealanders responded by purchasing more firearms. Smarter outside the polls than in, it seems. But that’s not the end of the story.

When I first wrote about the vote on the ban, I noted that,

New Zealand is setting itself up for a parade of “weapons” bans that will include all firearms (inevitably) then knives, pointy sticks, and don’t forget rocks.

Referencing my original post on the shooter who wrote, and I quote, 

With enough pressure, the left-wing within the united states will seek to abolish the second amendment, and the right-wing within the US will see this as an attack on their very freedom and liberty.

This attempted abolishment of rights by the left will result in a dramatic polarization of the people in the United States and eventually a fracturing of the US along cultural and racial lines.

Gun violence to advance socialism. Not the first time it’s been tried nor the last. We might go so far as to suggest that the bulk of mass shooters in the US who get press are of a similar mind. Most are disturbed, and the majority of them are Democrats.

They all know that before you can grab the guns you need to force people to register them.

America’s Democrat Presidential contenders echo the same refrains.

Red flags, mental health, advanced background checks, warrantless seizures, gun buybacks, registries, all to get guns out of the “hands of criminals.”

What they leave out is this. The goal is not to pass laws that keep guns out of the hands of criminals. That never works. It is to turn the hands of law-abiding gun owners into criminals as a pretext to disarm them. 

All that’s missing in New Zealand is the rhythmic clack of jackboots and a bit more time.
