GUN CONTROL FAIL: Nearly Zero Kiwi Gun Owners Give Up Their Guns After Christchurch

Anti-gun Ardern has asked kiwis to turn in their firearms. They aren’t listening.

Published

Anti-gun Ardern isn't having much success asking kiwis to turn in their firearms.

Following the Christchurch mosque shootings, New Zealand gun owners have only turned in 37 guns as of Tuesday March 19, 2019.

In the aftermath of the massacre which left 50 people dead, a small number of gun owners decided to voluntarily turn their firearms in to the local police.

New Zealand police confirmed these numbers but did not provide specifics on how many people owned those guns, the make and model of the guns, or the districts where they were turned in.

According to the 2017 Small Arms Survey, the island nation has approximately 1.2 million guns registered to civilians. Taking these numbers into consideration, this means that there’s roughly a 1 gun for every 4 people. On the other hand, it’s estimated that there is more than one gun per person in the U.S.

One day after the mosque massacres, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern proclaimed that her government aims to implement gun control, which includes a ban on “military-style” weapons that were allegedly used during the slaughter.

Ardern also called on New Zealand’s gun owners to turn their weapons over to the government:

To make our community safer, the time to act is now,” Ardern said on Monday. “I want to remind people, you can surrender your gun to the police at any time. In fact I have seen reports that people are in fact already doing this. I applaud that effort, and if you are thinking about surrendering your weapon, I would encourage you to do so.

The New Zealand Prime Minister recognized that passing sweeping gun control in a country with strong degrees of gun ownership in rural and farming areas would create “a small degree of uncertainty among some gun owners who possess guns for legitimate reasons.” Ardern reassured gun owners in these areas that the incoming wave of gun control would not be targeting them.

Gun owners who want to turn in their weapons have been directed to call their local police station or local arms officer. Then, gun owners have to fill out a firm and turn it in the police.

In a national statement, the New Zealand police said, “As the prime minister announced, anybody wanting to surrender their firearms to Police is welcome to do so.”

Although this shooting took place abroad, American politicians like Bernie Sanders have taken advantage of this crisis for their own political benefit by calling for “assault weapons” bans.

The gun control playbook has not changed much as gun control advocates continue using crises as major rallying points. This was on display after the Las Vegas and Parkland shootings, where gun controllers took advantage of the post-shooting outrage to pass a new wave of gun control in states across the nation.

Although New Zealand looks poised to pass gun control, the impact of this shooting has definitely made its way to America. With Democrats already passing gun control legislation like universal gun registration in the U.S. House, the New Zealand shooting will likely give gun control efforts in Congress an extra boost.

National Foundation for Gun Rights Pitched in $50K for Kyle Rittenhouse’s Legal Defense

They’re stepping up to the plate.

The National Foundation for Gun Rights (NFGR) announced on September 17, 2020 that they are providing $50,000 of aid to Kyle Rittenhouse, who is facing various criminal charges after he defended himself and business owners from leftist agitators in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

 

 “I spoke with Kyle’s mother this morning to let her know NFGR received over a thousand donations amounting to over $50,000 from folks who support her son,” declared Dudley Brown, Executive Director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights.

 

Rittenhouse’s mother was thankful about receiving the donation. She stated, “No words can describe what we’re going through. Thank you so much – and I know Kyle and the rest of the family would say thank you too.”

NFGR’s funds will go towards the Kyle Rittenhouse trust fund that is being operated by his attorney, John Pierce. The funds will only be used according to the desires of Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother.

 “We want Kyle to have the best defense possible,” remarked Brown. “If he were getting a fair shake from prosecutors, he would be home with his family right now instead of spending weeks in a jail without bail.”

 

According to video footage taken on the night of August 25th, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was fleeing an armed mob who were screaming, “Beat him up!” and “Get that dude!”

 

 “The left is doing everything in their power to portray a 17-year-old kid as the villain,” stated Brown. “We believe Kyle acted legally and defended himself from a dangerous group of armed thugs whose clear intent was to cause permanent harm.”  

 

The National Foundation for Gun Rights plans on continuing to back the Rittenhouse family until Kyle is able to receive justice for simply exercising his sacred right to self-defense.

 

NFGR is the legal arm of the National Association for Gun Rights. Since its founding in 2000, NAGR has been one of the leading no compromise, Second Amendment organizations in the country.

 

Unlike most organizations, they’re willing to fight all unconstitutional gun control legislation at the federal and state level. Second Amendment supporters can donate to NAGR and NFGR at the links below:
