I'm not gonna lie. The comments in this thread kinda make me sick. Do they REALLY think this will solve things? This is so fucking stupid. I looked at NZ law and it's ALREADY super tough to get any kind of semi-auto rifle. This is reactive law-making at some of its worst.

Might as well just ban all guns instead of this foreplay bullshit.

I was even't aware you could get semi-autos here till now. Personally I don't think it'll change, might be a talking point for the next set of elections, but in like a week i feel like people will go back to complaining about plastic, and nothing will change.

Nothing..Except having had your rights eroded, and your ability to depose evil leaders made harder.

Not only blocked, but NZ asked KF to rat on its users. But:
KF User - Quoting KF's Reply said:
"My name is Joshua Moon, I'm a US Citizen.... And I don't give a single solitary fuck what section 50 of your faggot law say "

Fuck me this is so American its beautiful

As satisfying as this might have been to say, I've learned not to burn bridges whenever possible. He can still refuse, but he should have been courteous about it.

I've also heard that NZ has blocked Voat, and that they have made it illegal to even unknowingly possess the video showing the shooting.
On pain of 10 years in prison.

Another, more dubious rumor is that it's showing a victim texting in the middle of the act, being either wounded or dead.
They're really trying to get his video and manifesto of the net..

They're classing it as 'objectionable material' so they'll hit you with that punishment. They did say that if someone you know is sharing it, to inform them, so i guess they want people to snitch. They haven't heard of the Streisand effect obviously

Aand the gun law passed. It's now illegal to own semi-auto rifles https://www.police.govt.nz/advice/firearms-and-safety/changes-firearms-law-prohibited-firearms
Prohibited firearms are:
  • All semi-automatic firearms (including semi-automatic shotguns), but:
    • excluding rimfire rifles .22 calibre or less as long as they have a magazine (whether detachable or not) that holds 10 rounds or less; and
    • excluding semi-automatic shotguns that have a non-detachable, tubular magazine that holds 5 rounds or less.
  • Pump action shotguns that:
    • Are capable of being used with a detachable magazine; or
    • Have a non-detachable tubular magazine capable of holding more than 5 rounds
There's a one month amnesty while they figure out the buy-back plan, which is apparently going to cost at least $200 million, afterwards you could face between 2 and 10 years in jail if you don't hand them in.
Gun clubs are coming under stricter scrutiny now too, people are starting to mention 'toxic culture' surrounding them (bs if you ask me) and I know at-least one, possibly two, has been shut down.

They think gangs are just going to hand over guns too https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/111712728/police-minister-warns-gangs-hand-over-guns-or-the-police-will-come-after-you?rm=a
Ha, what a joke

Also want to mention that our only convention has banned military costumes and replica guns aswell

What's even funnier, you can crack off shots with a pump-action almost as fast as a semi-auto with a little practice.
