In the wake of the mass shootings on March 15, 2019, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern pledged to change the country’s gun laws., which is political speak for doubling down on gun control.
At a news conference, Ardern stated “While work is being done as to the chain of events that led to both the holding of this gun license and the possession of these weapons, I can tell you one thing right now: Our gun laws will change.”
The Prime Minster also added:
There were two semi-automatic weapons and two shotguns. The offender was in possession of a gun license. I’m advised this was acquired in November of 2017. A lever-action firearm was also found.
According to Arden, the suspect is an Australian citizen charged with murder who acquired a gun license in November 2017 and began legally purchasing his firearms a month later.
Before Friday’s shooting, the country’s deadliest mass shooting was in 1990. In that event, 13 people were murdered in Aramoana. This massacre spurred the New Zealand government to impose restrictions on semi-automatic firearms.
Despite conventional talking points about New Zealand having “lax” gun control, gun ownership is treated as a regulated privilege and features universal background checks on all gun sales and transfers.
Nevertheless, this shooting has created enough hysteria to propel the New Zealand political class to take action. This was on similar display during the timeframes of the Las Vegas and Parkland massacres, which catalyzed states across the nation to pass gun control.
Anti-gun hysteria is through the roof, so we can expect more calls for gun control and see anti-gun memes permeate throughout the general culture.

America First Patriot Kris Kobach Believes Democrats are Using the Wuhan Virus Crisis to Push Socialism
U.S. Senate Candidate Kris Kobach believes Democrats are politicizing the Wuhan Virus to push socialist policies.
He asserted, “Many Democrats are exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to launch a full-bore push for socialism—making the socialist rhetoric of the early Democratic presidential debates look tepid by comparison.”
The former Kansas Secretary of State believes that Democrats are taking advantage of the Wuhan Virus pandemic to push for a “centralized, national health care system.”
That means “No more private insurance, private clinics, or private hospitals.”
Kobach correctly notes that “the communist country [China] that unleashed this plague upon the world was the epitome of centralized control.”
But for radical Democrats, that does not even enter the equation. For them, it’s control at all costs.
Sanders is not alone.
New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio called for “a nationalization of crucial factories and industries that could produce the medical supplies to prepare this country for what we need.”
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo established a state-run hand sanitizer factory, and has even threatened the use of state power to control prices. This is only a testing ground for even larger collectivist schemes.
From a big picture perspective, Kobach understands what Democrats’ endgame is with these calls for government involvement in the economy during the pandemic:
Many on the Left are also calling for massive expansions of the welfare state that have little or nothing to do with the coronavirus. This is what the socialist Left has been demanding for decades. Their demands aren’t about bringing the coronavirus crisis to a swift close; they are about enlarging the dependency class. They are exploiting the coronavirus for all it’s worth.
Kobach called attention to how private companies such as General Motors and Tesla are stepping up to the plate to produce ventilators, when many naysayers only think the state should be involved.
In his view, “Only a robust private sector free from government regulation will be able to pull the American economy out of the impending recession when this crisis is over.”
Kobach gets it.
The former Kansas Secretary of State is a certified immigration patriot and understands the value of limited government.
He’s the only choice for America First patriots who believe in constitutional governance.
