NZ Woman Hunter Gets Death Threats

From The Daily Wire:

An avid huntress from Wanaka, New Zealand says she’s been getting death threats after posting a series of risqué photos of some of her successful hunts — criticism she says fails to take into account that her family eats the animals she kills in part as an attempt to avoid promoting factory farms.

The “Buyback” Fallacy

From Bearing Arms:

There’s nothing voluntary about turning over your firearm if you’ve been told you’ll go to prison if you’re caught with your gun. It’s asinine to pretend otherwise, which makes me wonder if the editorial board of the Christian Science Monitor are truly unaware of the compulsory nature of the New Zealand confiscation scheme, or if they’re attempting to deceive their readers about the New Zealand program in order to pitch “buyback” programs here.

NZ Puts Collectible Guns On Confiscation List

From Guns.com:

Several vintage rifles from yesteryear — some out of production for nearly a century– are on the list including the Remington Model 8, Winchester 1907, the M1 Garand, and various examples of the French MAS series. Rare Heckler & Koch wooden-stocked sporting rifles, like the HK 630 and HK 770, have likewise been targeted for destruction. Have a  Mossberg 500 with a 6-shell tube? It’s on the list alongside the Beretta A300 and Benelli Super Nova.
New Zealand’s Council of Licensed Firearms Owners, or COLFO, a pro-gun group, has warned they may seek legal action. The group has stated that the proposed compensation for those forced to hand over their firearms to the government may be a sour deal for many.

NZ Cop Admits Registration Necessary To Get Guns

From Bearing Arms:

Chris Cahill, with the country’s Police Association, said it’s not clear if this year’s budgeted funding for the buy-back would be adequate because New Zealand (like America) does not have an official gun registry.
“We really have no idea how many of these firearms are out there in New Zealand,” Cahill told the Herald. “Which really points to how bad our firearms legislation has been, that we have let this get out of control.”

NZ Crime Boss Says They Will Keep Their Guns

From New Zealand Herald:

“Will gangs get rid of their weapons? No. Because of who we are, we can’t guarantee our own safety,” he told Stuff.
He admitted many of the gang’s estimated 1000 associates hold illegal firearms but says they should be trusted not to harm innocent people.

“It’s not in our culture to inflict harm on innocent people like what happened in Christchurch,” Fatu said.

Removing Self Defense Isn’t Caring

From Bearing Arms:

Gun control isn’t “caring” or “valuing” citizens. It’s treating them like children who can’t be trusted with a toy because someone else did something wrong.
Stop pretending like you have my best interests at heart. You don’t. You want to turn people like me and me into criminals so you can feel better about yourself so that you can feel morally superior, but I refuse to roll over and allow it.

Be Prepared, Be Armed

From Breitbart:

You cannot choose where evil will strike, you can only choose to be prepared when it does. And being armed is part of being prepared.
