New Zealand Introduces Gun-Grabbing Bill that Will Soon Become Law

Published

on

The government of New Zealand has put forward legislation that would ban the majority of semi-automatic firearms.

Two weeks ago, BLP reported on Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern vowing to double down on gun control in the wake of the Christchurch mosque massacres.

Now it appears that she is following through with her word.

This proposed ban includes the types of weapons used in the  massacres— two semi-automatic weapons and a shotgun.

This anti-gun bill’s introduction on April 1, 2019 is the next step in passing the sweeping gun control reforms that Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern promised right after the March 15 attacks that left 50 people dead.

According to NPR, New Zealand immediately enacted several gun control measures on March 21. Police Minister Stuart Nash claims that the bill now being considered, which is a more extensive ban, would be enacted on April 12 should it pass. The New York Times report that this bill has overwhelming support across party lines.

Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters told reporters on April 1, 2019 “This will mean that within four weeks of the Christchurch terrorist attack, New Zealand will have passed legislation banning all military-style semi-automatic weapons and assault rifles.”

Nash introduced the Arms (Prohibited Firearms, Magazines, and Parts) Amendment Bill, which would criminalize the ownership of certain gun parts that can potentially be used to build prohibited weapons. The Police Minister claimed that the gunman in the Christchurch massacre created “military-style” weapons from semi-automatic guns and high-capacity magazines that he legally purchased.

Nash told The Associated Press “The loophole that this terrorist used to kill 50 people was totally unacceptable. We’re closing that down.”

BLP reported that the initial efforts to get Kiwis to voluntarily surrender their guns has been a complete dud thus far, with barely any gun owners showing up to turn in their guns.

However, anti-gun politicians in New Zealand remain steadfast in their efforts to move gun control forward.

The New Zealand massacre has had a tremendous impact overseas with Democratic Party politicians universally calling for gun control measures like universal gun registration and so-called “assault weapons” bans.

Like previous shootings in Las Vegas and Parkland, anti-gun politicians in the United States are hoping this can generate a tidal wave of gun control across the nation.

Despite the growing radicalism among the anti-gun left in America, the United States still remains the most gun-friendly nation in the world.

The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters

Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.

Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters. 

Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits. 

He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.

The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:

Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…

By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.

For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats. 

Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another. 

In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election. 

Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
